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.
Great School I just signed up and they got great clubs and group to join and there just great all along
I'm a recent graduate and I feel I escaped just in time. During my years there I witnessed rampant administrative manipulation, often focused more on covering up and concealing dysfunction within the school than preventing or repairing it. As a student journalist I was muzzled and in one instance my athletic eligibility was actually threatened for political reasons. In recent years redistricting efforts have led to the introduction of many students previously districted to Dudley.
My oldest daughter is a freshman at Page High School. We moved to Greensboro last year after 8 years in Winston-Salem, so adjusting to a new life at a new middle school where she had no friends was difficult at best. The faculty and staff at Page are excellent, from what I have seen, they treat all students and parents equally at Page. As a result my daughter has had a wonderful adjustment to highschool. I especially have to applaude Mr. Parrish, her drama teacher, and Mr. Flynt, her Science teacher who have both nurtured her interest in dramatics and art, without having a negative impact on the rest of her studies. So far I have had nothing but positive experiences with Page...keep up the good work!
This school is a very balanced school and provides students with very challenging courses and teaching styles which I can say helps our students prepare for the future. Teaching staff at this school is actually not that bad, it is somewhat shifted to caucasian teachers, but I honestly have no complaints from either side. I feel that it is a very promising school academically and athletically. I would encourage you to send your children to this school having graduated from it myself I can say lots of things have changed but only for the better.
When I was a student, this school seemed more focused on its athletes rather than the academics. The majority of the student body was from affluent families making it difficult for others to fit in.
