Their policy is Zero Tolerance as it is in most school but realistically that is not the case. They policy seems to be turn a blind eye even when brought to their attention by a parent and give lip service about policy and the fact your child should report each instance hence labeling your child as a issue as well as if they do try to report it they are not given the opportunity to do. The counselors are getting hard to contact as the administrators.(not in, in meetings, will get back to you and dont)
It is almost impossible to speak to the Principle or Vice Principle when there is an issue. I have spoken to one school counselor in the 4 years my children attended school here and I can not say my issues or concerns were addressed effectively. Basically they were met with they same catch phrases that sound great but are mainly lip service and don't reflect well on the fact that each child is different and each child is unique.
I believe due to the decline of the students caring about their education and lack of respect for those among them to include the teachers and administrators they build very little with most their student population.
I have have lived all of the US and Europe. I have two students in this school and this by far was probably the lest favorite of school I have encountered. Most the teachers do care about the children succeeding however the administration is utterly dysfunctional. Their supposed "Zero tolerance" for bullying is a complete joke. They tell the children to report when they are being bullied but yet don't seem to take it very serious nor understand when it is brought to their attention it escalates the situation. I have even stepped in to speak with the counselor and was met with the same just brushed of demeanor. Don't expect to be able to speak the Principle or even Vice Principle that won't happen. The overall student population do not seem to care about their education even at this level they come across as just doing their time till they graduate or can eventual drop out. The sports program are mean and I believe they do work with the children to be better students and overall citizens. The cheer program is a click-ish group and there is very little information given to the parents for the girl's that wish to even try out as to when and what is required. Fortunately this is our last year with the school after 4 years we are relocating due to the fact the Wayne township school district seems to be very much on the decline. When we first moved into this area Chapel Hill and Ben Davis High School were the best of the best, I can say it hasn't live up to that expectation at all.
This school is wonderful at how they keep the parents involved. I get daily emails and feel welcome if I have any concerns about my daughter. The parents that give this school a terrible rating probably expect the school to do everything regarding their child's education instead of doing their part as well.
