More granular review system at the level of individual teacher would be effective, and rating must be isolated to the specific teacher. If one teacher has issues with diversity, it does not mean all teachers are the same. There are good people, good administration, but one regular education teacher is disgrace and I have no doubt she is troubled with certain origins of people. Unfortunately she has power. She can easily turn my child's life and my life to hell. No doubt this person is great hope for millions of people from third world NOT for my child who is born here in US. US is submitting 85K H1B work visa every year, because our education system can not create most needed work force. Guess what, she is on payroll from my taxes, property, state and federal. This time changing not the school only, district as well.
My two youngest children switched to this school this year from another school and we couldn't be happier. We love the open, multi-age environment and the friendly, welcoming atmosphere. There is a strong commitment to building social skills and positive relationships. The school is very much like a family. Parents are very involved and have done some amazing things such as building the school its own TV studio. The students put on their own morning program each day. It is a larger school but the use of "neighborhoods" gives it a small-school feel. The multi-age part means that kids are able to work to their own ability but some kids may have trouble as they have to be more self-directed than at a traditional school.
The teachers are very involved with the students. They know the kids well as they have them for more than one year. I am very comfortable working with my daughters teachers, and they are very good about letting me know what is going on. I also enjoy volunteering at the school.
