Not as good as It look! Unfortunately This school is not as good as it used to be, I enrrolled my Middle Schooler this year because someone recommended, but I found out the teachers, office staff are not prepared as they should be, my daughter came from a Magnet program, with excellent academic background, but here the advance program is not even basic they don't let homework to the students, they used a platform to get the information about every class, but the teachers usually come to post assignments late (when they do, which is unusual) then teachers take advantage that they are "just" kids to do wherever they want with the curriculum, the office staff is terrible! They don't help you at all in anything, the lady sitting in the front is just there to say "yes or Not" they don't find a way to try to help you or to listen to you when you have a question or concern and when you go to the office they are usually talking with others while the phone rings without stopping. No one answer the phone I have been there calling from my cell phone watching they lady laugh with other students and coworkers without answering calls.
students dont need a library to get a higher education, what students do need is a fun and interactive learning environment, i went to this school for high school and it the best school i have ever been in, when i have children i am going to put them in this school.
This school does need some more extra curricular activities, but that is not the most important thing. The teachers - in my opinion - do need a little more experience. I also do not like the fact that they have high-school, middle, and elementary all together. When they open up the new school I hope it is high-school only! Other than that the principal of high-school is a wonderful principal i would rate him a 10 out of 10.
With nine years of teaching experience, I must say that this school does not meet my expectations. It lacks experienced teachers, a library, and extra curricular activities. Please don't trust people's opinions who cannot even spell correctly!
I am a parent and I am very pleased to say that the school is considered very good and also their staff is very caring with the students but the onlything that I would like to see is for them to put more vairities of sports for the hgh school students as well as middle schoolers hopefully when the high school gets their new school they would have more sports such as football, soccer etc. so there could be more involment for the children so they could have better chances on earning scholarships.
This is my son's first year (9th grader) and he is totally motivated. The staff is very helpful and the school seems well organized and clean. Let's hope it does not over-populate like the rest of the Maters....
