I feel like I am on my own and that my child is not getting the help he needs. I do show up for meeting and email teachers but I just do not feel like he is pushed and encouraged at school like he should be. I am not pleased nor is he with his current resource teacher. His previous teaher for 7th and 8th grade, Diana Medley was wonderful! Since he started high school I feel he is being left further behind! I have talked with other parents about our childrens currently resource teacher and they are not happy either. I feel so helpless and lost. He gets very embarrassed easily and I have even been doing research to see if I can change schools for him because he is so unhappy. I feel that he should be comfortable and encouraged to use tools and resources available to him. Things should be explained better and someone who really shows that they enjoy and love their job is the only way to make it happen. He should not be left behind nor should any of his classmates. He is not embraced! I think that extra attention should be given to him to see that he is getting assignments done and turned in! Whatever it takes to see to it that he succeeds!
Overall, North Central is a superb school. Students have diverse choices with regard to academics, and non-academic activiities. Like most schools, I think discipline needs to improve. I would suggest a dress code for all students and make it mandatory that the professional staff dress in business dress only. Casual dress sends a wrong message.
i dont have much to say about this school. I hasd a kid go to this school. if you dont have money then you are stuck out on the other end. I know alot of athletes that didnt getthe reapect they needed. I think if one wins an accomplishment or award on the teams all of them should be regonized. i think Mr. Lowe done a real great job i will miss him alot. I know my child loved him to death and he was always there when i needed him. Thank you Mr. Lowe for everything you did for me. I hope you enjoy your new job. as for the school it could be improved by far.
This was one of the worst school's I ever went to. Between the violence and pointless speeches by the principle and superintendent, I feel that what I learned was lackluster to what I could have if they would have spent more time worrying about our future instead of how they looked to the community. They take all this money and did some of the dumbest things that they think benefit the school but did nothing for the regular student. It really is to bad I had to spend all 4 years of my high school career there.
For students who may not be going to college, I am concerned about my son being trained for work once he graduates. There seems to be very little flexibility in helping him learn but instead he is expected to learn at the same pace as the brighter students, leaving him behind. They have soiclal
this is a good place for us to learn. we have fun and learn at the same time.
The schools in this area are horrible. They are all about athletics and the students that aren't into them are left behind and feel left out.
The school is great enough where the classes are small, but the school could use some diversity among the student body.
I thinks is school is fairly average. It has nothing more than anyother school. The atheltics are good for its class but could be better.
I highly recommend this school. It is a very nice place for students to learn in a safe and professional environment.
