It's not about giving little or too much homework.. it's only about babysitting the kids and throwing them everything that they can and just mark them for their not turned in assignments. They never communicate with parents when they know our children are struggling.
C DUB is awesome in their academics, athletics, and visual arts. i personally believe that the sports are not to demanding but competitive at the same time. i personally believe that the band and color guard are the best in the nation and are very competitive but in a healthy way. over all totally amazing school.
Clovis West High School is a very competitive school, but always rewards those who dedicate themselves instead of giving up. The teachers here are very characteristic. Sometimes that can be a bad thing, but is mostly a good thing. Athletics is not forced upon students, and in no way are students "dissed" for not competing. If anything, there is only encouragement from friendly team members. In all sports, students will be pushed to their very limits (if they are willing) and will be taught discipline and respect. They will also learn to work hard and cooperate with other teammates to achieve a larger goal. But in order to stay in a sport, you must have a minimal of a 2.0 GPA (which is very fair). There is also an exceptional art program where several students will be taught how to hone their creative skills, and maybe show off their talent. For the other students who are both physically and creatively untalented, there is a strong AP program going on with some of the best teachers in the state. Depending on your talents, the teachers will go out of their way to promote your reputation in the professional world, especially the coaches. Free-thinking with discipline is also promoted.
My child recently started at Clovis West. We are from another country originally and before Clovis West she attended a school in San Francisco for a few months. We are so impressed with Clovis West. The teachers and students are very friendly and helpful. Many people warned us saying that your child is nothing unless they perform exceptionally well in sport. This is so untrue because Clovis West is really good academically too. My child has never been happier in any other school and I think that say a lot about the school. It normally is really difficult for a teenager to relocate countries as well as change schools. Thank you Clovis West for making it easy for us.
My daughter was well accepted by the children. She started as student during her Junior year. The teachers are very helpful and she is able to communicate with them freely when she has a problem. The councellars are not great. They do not respond to their emails and are not on top of things.
