It is said that Corner School has the highest test scores of Jefferson County Schools, besides Shades Valley. Some teachers need to retire because they are unhappy being there. Of course, it could be due to the lead administration. Teachers tip toe around him like they are on a thin sheet of ice. The tiniest decision must go by him first. He does not know how to discipline all students. The overall relationships he has with faculty and parents is not good. It is clear that the assistant administrator has more experience with special education students, but she does not get to use her expertise as often as she should be able to. It is obvious that the school expects even the disabled students to rise to the same challenge as the average and above average students. These students struggle being taught by teachers who need to have professional development so that these students can be better understood. There are many options for extracurricular activities. It seems that parent/teacher communication is important to most elementary teachers. Corner School keeps a very nice and clean facility. It is really a great school to be part of, regardless of its flaws.
