Aspire Alexander Twilight Secondary Academy 2

Posted May 21, 2015

The school has a lot of potential and resources. Unfortunately they spend most of this on finding ways to punish children. Instead of behaviors improving kids have found more ways to act out and bully each other in subtle persistent ways . Students don't trust staff. Has only gotten worse with new dean of students. High turnover in staff, probably because teachers hate the environment as much as students do. Administration is not honest with families. Loved the elementary side but would recommend families transfer out before middle school.

A lot of busy work that doesn't foster critical thinking. Most homework is a waste of time.

Some teachers are working really hard to foster positive relationships but bad policies from administration tend to trickle down.

Since they focus on punishment students have found ways to be sneaky, bullying is excessive but hidden.

Some teachers are really trying but others have fallen into the same bad habits as the administration where they focus on punishment and ruin trust and respect.

Good intentions gone awry. Parents are not valued and punitive measures are heavily relied upon to carry the school to the next level academically.
