My oldest child is in his second year in the Middle/High school. Each year I receive teacher introductory letters as the year begins, and I am tempted to 'correct' and return them. The most glaring error this year was, 'Are class' will be going on a field trip. As my child fell from a high honors student to failing two courses, not one of the teachers or school personnel contacted me. I discovered my child's struggle upon receiving his 'interim report card.' With less than 100 students per grade level, I expect more. In two years, only one teacher has contacted me regarding concern for my child or to check in. In the day and age of email and cell phones and web sites, the apparent lack of teacher concern is disconcerting, at best. I would not recommend the middle school for any student.
