Handles bullying effectively: Strongly agree


- a
With all the security guards and Police onsite, you can rest assured the fights and the like will be handled in a manner befitting the school spirit which is an armed camp.

Supports LD students: Strongly agree


- a
Yes, if you want your little one protected and treated like a little king or queen, just get your doctor to say the do not like the color green and they will get full attention all day long, while the rest of the class sleeps or the like.


Effective school leaders: Strongly disagree


- a
I am not saying leadership is bad, I am saying it is just a mouth-piece for the school board which in itself which would have a hard time hitting the water if they fell out of a boat.

Develops character: Neutral


- a
How can you develop something that kids should already have from all the years in school and Parents leading them?

Teacher effectiveness: Neutral


- a
Some Teachers are zombies, I do not know who bit them or how, but I do know they are making zombies of the students over and over.


Amount of homework: Disagree


- a
You can ask kids to do homework and it will not be done. This is because no real ramifications are applied.



- a
As a volunteer, I have seen how this has become an armed camp and by necessity. The management at this school seems to be interested in getting up to the home office instead of making things work at this school. A very sad situation and so many futures.

Teacher effectiveness: Strongly agree


- a
My children have had awesome Teachers who have assisted with tutoring, college prep and overall encouraged my children to be there best.


Develops character: Agree


- a
Overall this is true, there are a few administrators that can use additional training. I have heard of a few cases where students seem to be targeted but I have not experienced that with either of my children. The key at Independence is to be involved.



- a
The Teachers make Independence a great place to have your child. The Teachers email, support the athletic program and keep up with the progress of your child. Teachers offer tutoring after school and make recommendations for the following grade.
