I believe that ALL the issues with this school would be corrected with the removal of tenure. Most of these teachers are only there for holidays and summers off and the fact that they don't want to grow up. How much control do principles really have over the faculty when they know she can't do anything to them without an act of congress. The best thing I ever did for my kids was taking them somewhere else.
West Limestone High School is a wonderful school. I am proud to have been a Wildcat and am also proud to say my children are all Wildcats!!! I wouldn't want my children to go to school anywhere else in Limestone County. Principal Charlotte Craig is wonderful. She keeps her school in line, students as well as teachers. She is always willing to listen to parent's concerns.
West Limestone lets children fall through the cracks. No phone calls to parents when children are absent. They do however, call you in for a meeting after 8 missed days. By the rules in the books they are to call you at the first mised day and have a meeting at the 5th missed day. They, also put children who have learning dificulties in the hallway during class. What is this??? There is a law of no child left behind. If your child is fighting and teachers saw the fight start if they don't like your child he/she is the one that started it no matter that your child recieved medical attention due to a fight defending he/she. Schools are responsible for the saftey and well being of my child. They need to better comunicate with parents. If I had a choice for schools I sure would not choose this
I believe that only the negative on this school seems to be publicized. However this school is doing a fine job by educating the students. They have many honor graduates every year, won scholar bowl competitions around the state, and a good sports program. The teachers seem to go above and beyond for their student's education.
