Students are on the honor system. The school is a campus and not a single building where doors can be monitored. Students are trusted to get from building to building to their next classes within allotted times. I live in the neighborhood near the school. Students are not hanging out in the parking lot or around the perimeter of the school during the day, like you see at some schools. Students appear to be diligent In getting to and from school. There is huge community support of events, which is empowering to the children.
The appropriate amount of homework can only be determined by each class and course subject. When it comes to homework relevance over amount is what is desired. My son's teacher seemed to have given relevant him assignments. I would say home assignments should be interesting. In his Digital Tech, Marketing and Modern Language class h/w was but relevant and interesting.
My student is completing his freshman year at McEachern HS. He has enjoyed it an has no major complaints. I have always received timely and valuable feedback from his teachers. The teachers I have come in contact with over the last year have all been willing to assist and provide support. Before and after school additional coaching in academic classes is available. My son's counselor has also been very supportive. When I've reached out to her, she has responded. Overtime I am on the campus or call the front office and support staff have been friendly and helpful.
