My school is Inver Grove Heights Middle School. It is a excellent school because of the fine teachers who try to help each student especially in grade six feel comfortable and ready to learn. The teachers respond to emails if a parent has a question. School View is very helpful for both parents and students. It helps keep the parents aware of student progress. It is such a good communication tool for all.
This school was a disappointment for my child and I. The bullying is so bad here and we talked with the assistant principle a total of five times and nothing ever helped. Let's just say our whole family and grandparents were at the school the last time to talk about the bullying. We pulled my daughter from the school immediately and switched her to a different school where there have been no problems at all.
I know when i have talked with a few teachers i could never get a straight answer when it came to whether or not my daughter understood what was being taught. Then i hear that a majority of her grade is based upon if the work is turned in on time. What happened to the old grading system, when you were graded on if it was right or wrong. Tell me if im wrong but i believe they just push these kids through. How is that benefiting our kids. Oh it's all about the no child left behind act. Well i think they need to really look at this growing problem cause it is not always about being #1.
