I agree that the quality of teachers and instruction is poor. In my opinion the students individual needs are not of the upmost importance. In my experience with this school I feel that the #1 priority is for MAP testing not out of concern for the students but how it will reflect on the teachers. I was told by a teacher that if they can read it, they can get it. That is not necessarily so. If they do not understand what they have read, how can they apply it? The teachers need to go back to teaching the basics so that these kids have a foundation to build upon. They need more time spent with the teacher and more time spent on the subject being taught. In my opinon individual needs are not being met, and yes sports are also a very high priority with this school.
