I thank the principal for working so hard to better the students and staff at this school. For opening and allowing many opportunities for teachers and students to explore and grow. I thank the teachers that help keep this school great, the parents in line, and the students well-taught. And to the front desk ladies: You work the hardest to help all of us! Thanks for growing into the greatest school around!
They are a newer charter with a wide ethnic and income group. The teachers go above and beyond to work with what materials they have, and the entire structure is set up to focus on your child's needs. Tutoring is available and a wide array of after school clubs. It might not be Cherry Creek or Kent Denver, but they strive to be even better than them. This school has a lot of potential.
I submitted my volunteer hours which were over 130 hours and now have asked for the documents back, over the course of 4 years and every time have been told they'll look for them. Not organization is a failure that is contagious to everyone.
Over the years that I've attended this "math, science and technology" school, I'll tell you that the class I learned the least in was math, when it comes to science we didn't even have labs and I went to college not knowing what certain tools were in the lab, as for the technology it's old, basic stuff like teaching your students how to edit a photo, which I feel isn't necessary unless you're student plans to go into that field. We weren't taught how to make a resume, we weren't taught how to write college letters which brings the fact that the college counselor was terrible.
As a former student whom graduated from this school, I personally would never send my child to this school. The teachers have yelled, "why don't you understand!?" At us in classes. Certain students are also valued higher and more is done for them compared to the rest of the students.
When it comes to the principle, there was a change of one, the old principle moved in these few years and the new principle which I've witnessed actively getting involved with students, but when I had a problem with my younger brother and the way he was being treated along with BULLIED by the certain teachers, and brought this to his attention, he told me that he would give me a call back once he spoke with the teachers. I waited for him to get back to me and he didn't, considering that my younger brother was in his last year of high school I dropped it and he did as well, along with my parents.
