west point is a great school that has great teachers

Posted September 15, 2007

I am a graduate from wp high and now have a child who is graduating this year. Since my son has been in grade school, he has struggled with his academics. His father and i have had a tutor each year. Although he has struggled, he never has had any 'extra' help that his father and i did not pay for. I think the teachers need to be concerned with the student instead of 'who the parents are' or 'what church does the family attend.' Sad--but true. Students who do not attend certain functions or church does not receive the same as others who do attend. It is a very political & 'family' ran school.

Mathematics is the only subject taught well at West Point. Most of the school's resources are used to improve the athletic department. If politics didn't play such an enormous role West Point might actually be an above average school.

Child with learning disabilities are left behind. It is very hard to get help through this school inorder to help your child with learning disabilities. Teachers act like it is not their problem, they show no concern at all.
