Teacher effectiveness: Very effective
Submitted by a parent · May 07, 2016
The teachers truly try. If they were given the autonomy to teach the way they see fit rather than a forced, canned program, things would improve dramatically. It's difficult to master any one program when initiatives change too often.

Amount of homework: Not enough
Submitted by a parent · May 07, 2016
Too much busy work and not enough general skill building. The lack of reading homework is a big problem because students aren't reading much during the school day.

Develops respect: Strongly disagree
Submitted by a parent · May 07, 2016
The Olweus Program needs and update. Most of the students have completed all of the lessons and have become numb to the program. It's a well intended program that has run its course.

Develops empathy: Strongly disagree
Submitted by a parent · May 07, 2016
This school is in desperate need of a dean so that the new leadership can focus issues other than student discipline.
