How does it rate academically and socially. Any cases of bullying? How many kids per class?
I like this school alot. I never been to a diffrent district but to me this school is great. I've never been bullied. My grades are all A's and B's. the teachers are amazing they are all very friendly. And all the teachers have been very well educated with a GPA of 3.9 or 4.0. I have many friends and this school has many AP courses students can take.
This school changed their grading system to 90% test, 10% homework for the student's grades, which has effected the majority of the students in such a negative manner, they are having to explain to colleges why they went from 3.4 gpa's to 2.5 gpa's. It is very unfortunate. When there are typically 3 tests in a trimester, and a student does poorly on 1 test, for example a D, even if they get A's on the next 2 tests, they are unable to get an A in the class. Not all students are great at taking tests, and it has certainly shown in this new system. (Started in 2010-2011). This has been such a concern that when reviewing 1 particular teacher's students grades, it was disovered that over 70% of her classes were at failing, or near failing grades, to which the principal and staff were completely unaware as they had not done any follow up with their new teacher to make sure that the teacher and the students were successful.
I truely love SLPHS especially the ELL courses, I can feel the care from my teachers. Class time went great, and teacher also respect the student. The Social Study teacher are wonderful, their teaching ways is interesting, and I actually learn a lots.
My son has never enjoyed school as much as he does this year at SLP. The students are generally respectful, and the teachers are excellent!
i love this school. i have been to many different schools and to me this one is the best. Not only socially but accademically as well. At my previous school i was failing a couple classes but after switching i am at A's and B's
Classes are challenging and teachers care about how the student is doing. If at anytime a student's grade falls at or below a D then a progress report gets sent home. Also the whole school has so much school spirit it is a fun place to go to.
All of the AP classes push the students to do the best they can be. All of the teachers care about there students and make fair choices with homework. May not be the richest school around but the safety, teachers and students make up for that ten fold.
Stay involved. Communication between teacher and parents is very limited until it's too late. Even with notification to teachers and counselors that we wanted notification when something was going on with our child, this information was not given until it was too late. Their excuses ran from not enough teacher time, both parents were employed and they did not want to call us at work, they did not feel it warranted parent notification or in the case of a struggling student they suggested I take our son to Sylvan Learning Center, which at the time, I could not afford so I and they jepordized his education and the educational experience. I believe it is my position and the schools to offer my children the best start in their education, if I don't know they are faultering how can I help make an informed decision.
