It is my firm belief, that if the school does not address the need for teachers to be able to identify learning disorders, however slight it may be, they will end up hurting more students than helping. More professional development is needed at this school.
As a parent of a current CoaH student I do not feel the other reviews accurately portray this school. I do believe that as with many schools in and around the Boston area there a several areas of CoaH's program that could be improved. I encourage parents to get/stay/be involved in your child's education and keep communication lines open with teachers and administrators. CoaH's small community allows for academic and social issues to be handled in an expedient manner, and gives students the opportunity to feel part of a meaningful community. I agree that many students do not take full advantage of what is offered at CoaH, but I feel that some of that is due to the lack of support from parents/guardians. I have given CoaH a 3 star rating partly because I feel the school needs to do a better job in recruiting minority teachers & administrators.
As a former student at city on a hill the school is a great place to develop a great education. the teachers and the studens have a great bond and academiclly wise the techaers help the students with anything they need help with.coah is a great school thta has great opportunities. .A.V CLASS OF 2010
I am not a parent but a former student of City on a Hill (COAH). I started there in 2003 and left there in 2005. I believe that COAH is a horrible school for many reasons (1) the administration and teachers do not take the students seriously when they are being harassed (2) the total atmosphere of the school is negative (3) teachers do not take enough time to help students when they do not understand material (4) countless teachers have left because of behavior issues in the school (5) safety is not guaranteed and (6) academic success is hard to measure given how many people are kept back or sent to summer school.
To the comment made by the last review the children make a choice when in classes. That's what high school is about making choices. COAH is an excellent so if you would want your child to receive support and get the materials the right way. In BPS you would have a class size of 25+ but at COAH there would no more than 18 students and the ratio between teachers and students are great also. As i past student of COAH i feel as if that last review was horrible and totally incorrect. Many students at COAH do not take advantage of the good this the school has to offer to them. Those students that take the time to briad hair in class are those who are failing. Due to the fact that they made the choice to not take the time of study hall and to actually study.COAH is great.
City On A Hill Is a horrible school. I would not want anyone tp put there child throught the things my child goes through. The children do not learn, and the teachers do not teach. During study hall time children get the hair braided and play cards. Children also look at adult material on the internet during school time in the school. City on a hill is a horrible school and no child should go there
