Math & Science Magnet School
Teacher effectiveness: Very effective

The teachers, along with direct and regular assistance from the instructional facilitator and the administrators, focus on essential standards to ensure students are prepared for each new grade level. "Free time is not free" was one of the first things I heard after starting to work here. It has stuck with me as a daily reminder to make every MINUTE count.

It is obvious the principal and assistant principal respect the students and their parents, and giving respect is the way you teach it.

Compassion, caring, and empathy start with the principal and assistant principal. They set the tone for how we are ALL to treat one another.

The principal and assistant principal take discipline seriously; they do not just dole out punishment-- they talk to the children to get to the deeper root of the problem, and they offer "check in" systems to follow up with those children. Consistency of expectations, kindness and gentleness start at the top at Math & Science.

While the student population at Math and Science is very challenging (high poverty, highly mobile), the staff meets those challenges head on with the expectation that every student can learn, regardless of outside circumstances. The teachers love the students and get along with one another. That may sound strange, but I've taught in schools where the staff drama was a distraction from the learning that should have been taking place. The parents of the students I work with are helpful, respectful, and cooperative. It is a team effort to help children succeed!

My son is receiving good instruction and the teachers are working very well with him. The only problems we have experienced is teacher/parent communication. Sometimes when special meetings are scheduled, we will get the notes home the day of the scheduled meeting. This gives us little notice to attend these meetings about different school programs.
