Cocheco Arts And Technology Charter Academy
Develops honesty: Strongly disagree

as long as you agree with everyone else, or are willing to pretend that you do you'll be silenced. The shool itself is a lie. The arts programming is horrible, the music program is basically guitar, they haven't done a theater production since i've been here, and the art teachers are part time. The only 'integrity' you need at cata is to be able to pretend you're friends with the principle. then you can do whatever you want.

they're OK babysitters - at least for the kids that bother to come to school or stay in class. other than that, all they do is push hyper PC politics.

Amount of homework: Not enough

homework is really the only work that I do. Class work is a joke - instead of learning anything, you spend all you time talking about how to be PC and 'learning' that anything else is wrong.

becuase you have to be the same as everyone else, all you have to do is go with the flow. If you are actually an individual, you will b e forced out.

Mr. Friel (the principle) is always giving lectures and rants about respect, but what it really means is that he wants everyone to be the same. All of the students know that all you have to do to get away with anything is pretend to be mr friels friend.

If you agree with the militant PC attitudes of the teachers and staff, you're fine. If not, you'll be constantly harrassed. There is no room for differing opinions or thought.

Jessica and Brenda, the office secretaries are the best! They are the only people there that recognize that cata is supposed to be a school, and not a day care center.

The teachers are so busy babysitting and comforting students that they really aren't given the opportunity to teach. Their job is to be the students friends, and not their teachers.

the classroom academic expectations are so low, with students walking out of classes to take breaks or visit friends, and no real standards that homework is really the only time that students have to actually learn.

Once again, because it caters to students who are too emotionally delicate to cope with a normal school, the students are coddled, never held accountable, and allowed to do whatever they want, with no real repercussions.
