My younger sister has been attending this ridiculous school for 2 years. When she first entered this school she was happy, excited and ready to make new friends and have new experiences. Sadly, the only experiences shes had here, are terrible ones. First of all they make you feel like your putting your child/children in a great school, that has no tolerance for violence and bullying, however this couldn't be any farther from the truth. During her 7th grade year my sister began receiving very threatening letters and notes in her locker. She had her locker changed a multitude of times, but somehow the letters continued to find there way into her locker. So we decided to go down to the school to see if they could look at the camera footage, in hopes of catching the person responsible. They told us that they wouldn't look at the cameras, because it would be impossible to know what time it was happening, and that they weren't going to look at all the footage from that day. She received a letter a couple days later, telling her that they (whoever was authoring these horrible letters) were going to come to her home in the middle of the night. A conference was scheduled by us immediately. During this conference with Mrs. Hathy, she had the audacity to say "Let me explain what bullying is." This just goes to show how "important" bullying is to them. Nothing was done voluntarily by the staff, we had to eventually call the school board in order to get any information from them, and the have them take any kind of measures to try and stop the problem. They never resolved the problem. They treat both the students and parents like they're stupid if you try to get involved in any other way, than the way they want. If you actually care about the interests of you child or children, I would find a better place to educate them. They are the future of this world, why are they not being treated as such?
I'm someone whom moved to Vegas several months ago. I have to say Fertitta is a poorly run school. They push this whole idea of Fertitta 15 with the students but not a single teacher follows the program. They have a ridiculous dress code that causes mire issues for families than good. They also speak of common core but they are so far from reality its a joke.
Love the English and Science Teacher. Do not like the Choir Teacher. Math teacher seems to be ok. Reading teacher not sure about him yet. Love the P.E teacher. I think my child is receiving an average education. I am hoping I am proven wrong. Too early to tell.
Too early to tell. The school has given our kids an organizer and we are to look at it and figure out what the teachers have assigned. I wish the school would have a homework journal that document the scores as they go so parents can see if their kids are averaging A, B, or C so if homework given is not enough we would know by where they stand in the class in real time. I am learning the schools system. I will have to report back.
So far what I see is kids don't want try because of red tape politics. They believe succeeding in activities in the school is an impossibility and the way the faculty handles situation seems to cause kids to give up instead of trying to attain what they want through persistance. Not a friendly place.
