I applaud the staff and teachers. They have a thankless job. They are underpaid and over worked. I have a lot of respect for them. There are a few teachers who make my blood boil, but for the most part they are a great group of people.
I think the parents baby their kids too much. I am a parent and I am just left speechless at the behavior of some of the kids. Instead of the parents disciplining their kids they go after the teachers and staff.
I have 3 children who have attended the school. I am proud that my children are exposed to people from different countries. We have had good and bad experiences. Like many schools, it has its ups and downs. After speaking with friends who live in more affluent neighborhoods, I have come to realize that every school has issues.
The best part of school is the teachers and staff. Many of them go above and beyond to assist parents and students. Many parents don't understand the constraints that the teachers are under within the school district. Many parents have a mindset that they are sending their child to a private school because it is a (was) a Charter School, when in fact it is a Clayton County Public School. The parents who have children with special needs have a high expectations of the teachers and staff when those expectations aren't held in their own household. I am looking forward to the new school year (2017) with a new principal and a better relationship with the district.
