Archimedean Middle Conservatory 3

Posted January 10, 2016

I graduated from AMC last year and I agree that it is not for everyone but I wouldn't use that as an excuse because that goes for every school because every school has a unique way of functioning. Archimedean, however, takes uniqueness to a WHOLE other level. The homework is excessive, but not entirely impossible to do (it has its moments). The teachers have gotten better over the years, I can only think of three to five teachers that it's highly unlikely for you to get through to once they form an opinion on you. Once you figure out how to act around that teacher and you know how they work, it'll work for most of them. The REAL problem is the principal, she's a nightmare. I understand that kids, especially at the ages of 12-15, should be disciplined, but that's not really what she does. She'll suspend you for ridiculous reasons and act tough, but when an actual situation occurs, she does not know how to handle it. She acts like she knows everything, and maybe it's the arrogance and ignorance that clouds her judgment, but boy is that lady something. Teachers even change the way they act when she walks in the room. Once you hear her heels in the hallway, everything is dead silent. If you report something to her, report to her three more times and MAYBE she'll do something. I was once had a horrible teacher in 7th grade that failed almost everyone. This is no exaggeration: more than half of my class went to the principal about once or maybe even two times a week to complain about him. Did anything get done? Nope. Last year there was this teacher that would form an opinion on the students over little things they would do and hold it against them throughout the year. He spent half of the class making speeches about how he learned in class when he was a child and basically bragging about how great he was. Who cares? Will that help me in life? It's not like the material he was teaching would've helped me either way but come on. He once spent a whole class insulting a student and telling them all the teachers thought they were absent minded. Who does that? And did the principal do anything about it? Nope. That lady doesn't do half as much as the vice principal. Just stay clear of her and it'll be fine. One thing I'll say is that I learned many life lessons there and there are truly amazing teachers at this school. Once you know how to act, it's really not that bad.

There are really amazing teachers that care about the students and make them feel comfortable and at times they even make you forget they're teachers and make you realize they're normal people you can actually talk to.

No matter which teacher to talk about in this school, nice or mean, they all stick something in your brain that helps you graduate.

Amount of homework: Too much

Too much homework, but they give it to you in a way where they know it's unfair but they also know it's possible to do so they'll give it to you anyways. There are a few teachers, however, that will give you more time or less work if you tell them you have too much already.

A big thank you to Ms. Borgman, Ms. Pournara, Mr. Dennis, Ms. Rosales, Ms. Daglio, Mr. Ares, Ms. Maldonado, Ms. Estrada, Ms. Rodriguez and Ms. Moysidis for working with my daughter and believing in her! I feel blessed to be part of such an amazing school. I would also like to thank the teachers from 7th and 8th grade, who don't teach my daughter but go out of their way to make everyone feel welcomed!

The teachers are amazing. They go out of their way to help students advance. They dedicate their afternoons and Saturdays to help ensure success for all their students on standardized tests.
