Teacher effectiveness: Somewhat effective
Submitted by a community member · September 02, 2015
Too worried about their prep or missing their prep over what's best for the kids. Not all but certainly quite a few

Develops grit: Disagree
Submitted by a community member · September 02, 2015
Again when given everything one learns they don't need to be persistent nor have determination.

Develops respect: Disagree
Submitted by a community member · September 02, 2015
Hard to learn respect when their own parents make excuses for their child's poor behaviors.

Develops honesty: Disagree
Submitted by a community member · September 02, 2015
Some student's get more chances then others while being supported for poor behavior. Not many consequences at this school
