The principal is deplorable. She doesn't communicate effectively or use proper English. When you try to discuss any issue you have, she just talks over you and never really addresses the issue. I think her leadership has disenfranchised and set a negative tone many good teachers.
Page continues to get worse each year. The administration is a joke. They cannot even speak proper English. The lack of communication is unacceptable. The leadership team and administration continue to create rules that are not explained and they do not give reasons for many decisions made (dress code). It is a shame that they continue to harass good students about their wardrobe when they are making the school look better by our test scores. Some teachers are very passionate, but others take their job as a joke and prefer handing out packets rather than teaching the class. What happened to the need for education? Why pay teachers if the students are just expected to teach themselves. It is so surprising that Page has so many smart students. The parents and the students deserve most of the credit. The teachers are too opinionated about sensitive subjects and do not seem to truly care about the feelings of the students. The administration is the worst. They take weeks to reply to emails and phone calls. When they finally get back to you, expect to wait 30 minutes to meet with them. The parent's and student's time is not valued. The office staff is unprofessional.
We have two children at Page. For those serious about getting a quality education, Page is there to make it happen. Most of the teachers care about the quality of the educational experience. The sports program is committed to excellence. As with all large, public schools, Page is forced to deal with an element that does not value education (and with parents eager to blame the school rather than their student), but the administration is committed to trying to motivate these students. So if your child is willing to pursue the accelerated track, Page has an excellent track record of success going back decades.
This school is making it hard for children of a certain genre to thrice and excel. Alot of the teachers are childish and they make it more of a competition to stay out of trouble than they do a learning experience. They sterotype and outcast some children. Very ignorant teaching staff. Cold and desensetized to the learning experience for children,
Excellent Teachers and Administrative Staff, who are Committed to providing, Top Quality Education for all students. As well as , Empowering our children for future growth and deveopment through daily exposure and interaction in a culturally diversed environment.
My son is a freshman student, attending this school. He is very enthusiastic about several of his classes. One in particular is, his Drafting Class. He is captivated by the artistic designs, he's creating. And also, the knowledge he's gaining through his Teachers.
I am a parent. Page High School is a place with very caring teachers and a wonderful administration. Because it is a 'city' high school, the student body is quite diverse. This diversity has it's positives and negatives. My children have thrived there - both through the positives and negatives. If you have a self-motivated, confident, child with interest in accelling academically and/or artistically, and/or athletically, then they will get more out of Page High School than they could ever imagine. If you have a child who is not motivated to excell academically, is more interested in where the party is, or who tends to gravitate towards trouble, then perhaps Page is not the place for him/her. The talented teachers are there. Page has produced Morehead Scholars, Division I, II, and III athletes, Musicians, Artists, etc... If your child wants it, then he/she can be very successful there.
