Submitted by a parent · October 21, 2015
Very few teachers are "great" at this school and the Principal is ineffective is setting the tone for the qualities I wish to see in my child

Develops respect: Disagree
Submitted by a parent · October 21, 2015
The Principle does not possess this quality therefore, it is unlikely her staff can impart this on the students.

Develops empathy: Disagree
Submitted by a parent · October 21, 2015
The Principle does not possess these qualities therefore, the likelihood of the culture of the school to embrace is small

Develops honesty: Neutral
Submitted by a parent · October 21, 2015
If the Principle does not embrace character and integrity AND set the expectation for her administration the message will not be received by students.
