I am student teaching at West Point High School, North Campus. The faculty and administration are doing their jobs by creating a safe and productive learning environment. However, teachers cannot make students excel. The overall demeanor of students and parents is one of hypocrisy and laziness. How can teachers and administration be responsible for nonmotivated students when parents of these failing students will not even return a phone call from faculty? There are tutoring programs for every subject on every grade level. I have seen one student come for tutoring out of almost a hundred that I teach. Community and parent involvement must improve for anything in the school to improve.
I am a teacher at this WPHS-S and we have a fantastic faculty and administration, but we have a large number of students that want to succeed on a higher level. I am very proud to be part of this school district!
This is not the best school. Many of [the teachers] are not interested in putting in the extra time outside of the classroom to help the child get a better understanding of what is being talk. I would not recommend this school to another student because it is definately not the best.
