This school has made us feel like FAMILY! Unique and in a class all of its own.

The teachers that tried to teach the students to the best of their ability despite the meddling the administration does.

They are hindered by the administration. They are forced to teach in a specific way even if it is ineffective.

The administration is often times hard to respect as they do not respect parents, each other, or staff. They are rude to the staff, they do not respect any opinion other than that of the superintendent and her family.

They don't really touch on this much. The most you'll get for this is caring about the environment. They (the administration) don't act with compassion or empathy towards each other. They can be heard yelling at each other quite often from the reception desk. They treat each other poorly.

Lots of favoritism is shown towards specific students. The administration doesn't often show these traits, especially when dealing with other staff and the parents. They lie far too much to each other and it seems that they hardly ever respect the parent's opinion.

The school is extremely poor academically. Currently the school has Trigonometry and Pre-calculus in the same classroom in the same period. The seniors don't end up learning precalc. Juniors and Seniors do not have any physical activity related classes; they are just holed up in classrooms all day. The school lacks sports entirely and actually discourages sports for some godawful reason. The administration is stubborn and unwilling to listen to anyone with an outside idea. The school is unorganized and filthy throughout the campus and classrooms. Teachers are not allowed to teach properly and are forced to use idiotic methods by the administration. They use student labor to feed the students and call it a class, they also use students to make the tshirt for the school and call it a class.

Teachers focus more on average and failing students and not enough on excelling students. They dont take the parents opinions into account.

Amount of homework: Too much

Posted July 03, 2015
- a parent
Throughout the year they provide anple homework but on vacations they expect the kids to do all the hw they do as if they were in school daily. So i have to ruin my vacation arguing with my kid to do their hw. Its ok to be given a little hw but not 2 weeks worth.

No. The only thing they give the kids as an incentive to do their work is water day at the end of the year, which costs money, end of the year class trip to peter piper and a movie or the zoo, or for upper classman a trip out if state and even the country, in which half the parents cant even afford to send there kids to belize. They have even given the kids certificates to Bookmans that can only be redeemed at the Tucson location.
