Having children in the system for over 16 years the school system is extremely unbalanced. Unless you are part of the elite group of parents your concerns regarding your child are not the concern of the administration. If you are a parent who voices your concern you become a problem. Its sad when we teach our children not to bully yet give the power to the principal who leads this role in his behavior. He is now the high school principal and should not be in a position to have so much control. Being treated equally is not an option in this system. You are either part of the click or your a problem. I have worked in the school system especially with the teachers and find them receptive and generally sincere in wanting the best for the kids. Its because of them that we saw it through. We have more people pulling their children out and putting them in other community schools. Two years ago our Senior class had almost less than half of its class graduate. Do the research. Ask for numbers, and talk to parents who have kids in sports and them who don't. Its a very clear line.

My son attends Winthrop High School, and though he does struggle in a couple classes, the teachers do whatever is necessary to help him excel! They are committed to working with the kids and community..

Both of my kids went through the school system from K through 12. They are both doing great at the college level. The system is not perfect but there are many quality administrators, teachers, coaches and other employees that more than makeup for other shortcomings. Also, I feel that the board of education does a tremendous job dealing with the budget issues that plague every school system.

This school is not a good school. The teachers in this school do not care about the kids they just want to get their work done and get paid and go home. The principle in the school is both princapul of the middle school and the high school. She does not know how to handle the high school kids and still treats us like we are in middle school.
