I do believe we need a better teacher this is my 3rd year at this school. i personality think is fun and nice school. this is the first year that the middle school have web leader too, cause i know because i am in that. we like tell 6th grader about stuff like bullying and other stuff ps 6 grader wild student for an 8th grader i finally know how that feel being with bad kids not bad but wild sorry if i said anything mean about your 6th grader
Te school needs better hiring and placement of new teachers. The focus seems to be on making better working environments for teachers and less about the kids. Announcements on new programs for faculty while asking for donations for technology when many teachers do not fully leverage the tools the have is a systemic problem.
I personally go to this school. It's a good school, but nothing more. We're like every other middle school, with a social ladder, the top being the super-elite super popular. Good arts and music program, if that's your thing. Good in academics, too.
Although the teachers and administration attempt to make the school feel small by breaking into 'families' it is just too big. The teachers can not keep tabs on all the bullying and teasing that go on. I took my children out of the school because of the cliques and sub-standard education. Yes, the have art, sports and limited music opportunities, but those also are sub-standard. If you have a choice send your children elsewhere.
