School has really gone down the tubes this year...the staff look miserable. They are constantly arguing about administration and forget trying to see guidance!

Teacher effectiveness: Somewhat effective

Some of the teachers are great while others are disorganized, do not put grades in the parent portal, do not offer any type of feedback on the students' work (including returning tests).

Again, they talk about this but the teachers and admins do not demonstrate this through their actions. There are students who are clearly more talented that are overlooked in favor of a teacher favorite.

I have had good experiences with some teachers and bad with others. Overall, just average.

I believe they talk about compassion and caring but the actions demonstrated by the teachers and admin do not support that.

Amount of homework: Just right

With so many extras offered at MSA homework is minimal. Classes are 90 minutes long so they can get their work finished in class. Teachers have more time to work one on one with students.

There are several avenues for students to succeed. I witness a lot of encouragement. The students support each other as well.

I have yet to see a student be disrespectful to a staff member and visa versa.

Teachers definitely care about the students. They morn and celebrate together. I have not felt a staff member is unapproachable.

They are fairly strict. Any issue has been dealt with swiftly. Kids will be kids but, they know they are more than likely not going to get away with bending the rules.
