This is our first year at this school. Started off with a bumpy ride but things are starting to smooth out. I hope there will be some more behavior issues addressed but for the most part our family is satisfied.
From what I've heard, this place hasn't changed a bit since a friend and I left. This school and the entire district don't care about LGBTQ students (or ones that students claim to be gay) one bit and some of their staff even torment them alongside those students' peers. Disgusting. People who are trusted with the safety of children have no right to harass their students based on rumors or to taunt their students because of sexuality, race, disability, or ANY reason. Yes, you CAN expect racism here, toward students of any race from staff of any race. If your child is being bullied, expect excuses and lies. In my experience, teachers have ignored students physically and sexually assaulting me right in front of their eyes, but claim that there is no proof when the authorities or higher-ups are involved. If the staff really don't like you, expect punishment when other students claim that YOU assaulted them, when no such thing happened. Who cares about some punching bag? Parents and guardians, if you care about your children, send them elsewhere.
Aside from the very dedicated teachers the electives are quite limited though they boast the only CAD class in Washtenaw county. The technology the students and teachers are the best in the county. Although the principal and teachers are highly involved in the students education, many of the parents and the board of education have trouble putting the students' education first.
