This school has the potential to be great, however, administration keeps making changes that are clearly not thought thru and are intended to have an impact on the students academic grades. For example, a program called Flextime was introduced this year...the staff has yet to answer parent questions about the goals for the program, teacher and staff accountability to the success of the program and inherent inconsistent grading standards for the program. I highly doubt that the school superintendent has a clue as to what is happening at this school. If administration would take the time to listen to what the parents are saying , they might find it easier to ask for and get financial support for things like PTO and the Boster fundraising program. The teachers here have been awesome, it's a shame the administration overshadows them. Listen to what your students and parents are saying. It will be better for your resume than an I'll thought through , poorly implemented "Flextime" academic program.
The school has an excellent curriculum, however, the staff and teachers do not watch out for the emotional well being of the students. If your kid is not wealthy, athletic or popular, they will struggle with bullying and the teachers or principle will not come to their rescue. We are so thankful to be moving out of this district...A lot of mean snobby kids.
