I am very disappointed in this school. The students spent months doing only practice tests for the state exams. So many that even Science class was cut to allow for more Math cramming. It is important that the students know what to expect on the exams, but a huge disappointment that they are teaching the test only as opposed to the material. Just teach them the material and allow the test to do what it is intended to do. The principal is completely incompetent. She is very focused on her fashion sense, and not at all in touch with what is happening in the class rooms. The only tutoring offered after school is for low income students. The principal does not follow district protocols and clearly does a very poor job inspiring her team to teach. A team is only as strong as their leader. As exams have demonstrated, the leadership here is a fail.
Test scores are below state average and teachers with a masters degree is very low, according to the information Great Schools provided herein.
