The principal has no leadership or communications skills. From my research, as far as I can tell, she's never spent a day in the classroom as an actual teacher. I'm convinced the only reason she is a principal in Jeffco is because they have a serious shortage of good people.
Welchester has some great teachers, like Mrs Jones, Mrs Applegate and Mrs Archer. All of whom are teachers who were there before the current principal's reign. The school has lost some good teachers since she became principal.
I have had a very difficult time getting a straight answer about how this school approaches homework. From speaking with other parents in the neighborhood, the parents spend an average of 20 minutes to 1 hour doing their child's homework for them.
