Teachers indivualize students instead of grouping them together. Therefore they can see the individual strengths and weaknesses and hone in on them. This allows things to be tweaked to meet that particular students ts needs opposed to the whole group where it only works for some and not for all.
I think in our experience the level of homework given is appropriate. It is just getting them to do it when they get home. However there is a 12th period option at the school with transportation of a later bus provided. So really there is no reason not to complete it.
They believe in working together and that every child has potential. They incorporate taking responsibility for your behaviors into everyday lessons and activities. They have recognition rewards in place also.
They treat the kids with respect and helps to build their confidence by focusing on their strengths. Therefore it makes it easier to build up the if weaknesses and allows them success. The teams of teachers and other staff member have a way of providing delicate intervention and providing strong assistance and person al building skills. They do believe in every child and the Assistant Principal Mrs. Anders if very attentive and on top of any issues that may arise.
