Teacher effectiveness: Disagree


- a
Most teachers have no experience and I know for a fact that other parents have complained about many of the teachers and nothing has been done about it.

Develops character: Disagree


- a
It's hard to develop fairness in students when teachers have their favorites and are more lenient towards more students than others.




- a
The teachers have their favorites and several of the so called teachers aren't "teachers" at all.



- a
Great committed staff. Engaged students. A joy to see how far these students have come.



- a
Great school! Not only do students get an academic education that prepares them for college, they also receive a practical, applicable education on how to have great character. This also extends to the sports program which seems to improve year after year. The athletic director leads by example. When emotions run high, he keeps his cool and requires this same good character from fans, parents, and students. He handles situations face-to-face and doesn't hide from dealing with problems, meeting them head-on to find a favorable solution. He strives to build bridges between the teams, coaches, fans, and faculty and reminds everyone to be of good character at all times. Next to the AD, the varsity coach is fantastic. He coaches with passion and demands his players play with passion. When games get rough and refs don't live up to expectations, coach handles himself in a way that exemplifies JICHS character. When he was personally attacked publicly and wrongly accused by another team's AD recently at a local game, he used his personal discouragement to make a difference in the impressionable lives around him. James Irwin Charter High School is the place I want my children to be! I will sing their praises as long as there is breath in my lungs and as long as they continue to leave a legacy of excellent character and academics!!!




- a
My boys received a great education and learned leadership skills and character traits that will make them better adults

Teacher effectiveness: Agree


- a
The teachers that truly want to be there and have the students in the forefront as being the most important reason for their job are effective. Those that are just trying to get a little experience to move on no I do not feel are effective

Amount of homework: Agree


- a
I do not feel my students ever had too much homework. They were still able to handle school work and homework, sports, scouts and get enough sleep at night to be healthy.


Develops character: Agree


- a
These are some very good character qualities the school strives to teach their students to make them better adults.

Teacher effectiveness: Disagree


- a
Their business model is based on recruiting very young teachers with zero experience. The poor students are guinea pigs to this social experiment.
