I went to Boyd Anderson school my 9th grade year and I think it is a wonderful school that tries to help its students as much as possible. It has a bad academic reputation, but the teachers are trying to improve it with very little help from the children. I think it's a great school. Thank you for your time.
In my four years at BA we went through 3 principals. The principals we did have seemed to be minimally involved and none of them made a dramatic difference. The Ib program seems to be the only thing keeping that school together and little by little it too is deteriorating. While there were activities and clubs for students to get involved with, actual involvement was hard to come by. Parent involvement also seemed to be at a minimum, at least outside of IB.
The Boyd Anderson International Baccalaureate magnet program is a wonderful opportunity for a child to get an exceptional education. The program is very intensive, but the rewards are great. The classes are challenging and interesting because the subjects are explored at a much deeper level than in a traditional or Advanced Placement environment. Students learn to analyze a given subject, rather than simply memorize answers to questions. IB graduates are heavily recruited by Universities. The principal does not appear to support the program as much as previous administrations. Hopefully, the program will survive his passive aggressive attempts to dissolve it.
Boyd H. Anderson (BA) is a school that has a great respect for diversity. The students and faculty bond together to provide quality education for all! In spite of certain ethnic barriers, students embrace learning and try hard to accomplish all that is placed before them.
this is a horrible school. my son was an a-b student until he got here. his grades dropped drastically. he was placed on indoor suspension and they never even bothered to notify me of it.i'm so glad this is his last year there. i would not recommend this school to anyone.
From what I read in the previous review, I am sorry to see that this student (or I fear Parent) spent too little time in English class. To open ones mouth is to remove all doubt... This school is doing the best it can with many difficult students. Most could be corrected with the proper homelife and guidence. The school cannot do it all. I do believe the Principal is not doing enough to oversee the teachers.
This is the worst school that you would want you child to go to. The teachers dont teach crap, there are fights everyday, no discipline whatsoever, and can careless what we or the students feel. Again, I don't recommend anyone letting their child go to school there!!
