OMG! "Leadership" is a joke. Most people don't even know who to go to for even an egregious situation since admin. avoids active engagement and drops the ball EVERY SINGLE TIME! "Director" afraid to make waves with kids/families allows them to engage in very bad behaviors indeed.
There's no way to be effective in this chaotic environment in which "leaders" do not show up in any classes or provide support for teachers. Director states that coaching is provided. This is simply a boldfaced lie.
No leadership or support for teachers. Students are totally out of control and disrespectful to each other and staff. Total chaos. No real learning can take place in such an environment. An enormous wasted of beautiful young minds. I mean, it's not even a clean environment. Mouse droppings in teachers lounge? You've got to be kidding me! Appears to be another dumping ground charter school with zero accountability. Pillsbury should put its sponsorship immediately.
A total chaos environment like this is at the mercy of the character of the students. The students do not seem to bully each other, but ask a an 8th grade student to spell a basic word such as "dirt" or "wagon". You'll be dumbfounded. Everyone just runs wild.
This school is amazing, and welcoming. I been there since 8th grade. I love the teachers, the staff, and the studnets. It might be different for those kids that went to Public Schools but this school gives you the chance to have one on one with the teachers at any time, it gives small classes that you can learn, and be heard at the same time. This school is a small school with a BIG HEART.
This is a great school for my child. He has been there for 4 years now. My child was pulled out in public school til it was over 60% of the time. This Year he was mainstream with minimal guidance and maintained over a 3.0 average. The administration and teachers are always easy to get a hold of . The even take parent suggestions on what parents have seen work for their kids. I never had that with a public school.
