It is unfortunate to see the school system being blamed for students who aren't being challenged, I saw the same need in my child but not in North Baltimre and I took responsibility to pick up that slack so my daughter continued to escel. I was disappointed that the school system here was a big step down as far as learning and homework but I couldn't stand by while my daughter's grades and interest plummeted. Some of the things I did was let her choose something she wanted to know more about, (i.e. American Indians, Columbus, ) and we would go the library and learn all about it that week and there would spelling tests and chapter tests that I made up according to my daughters capabilities. It really is true that a childs mind is a terrible thing to waste but as parents we are all teachers.
North Baltimore Schools just received a excellent rating on the state report card. Small class sizes and dedicated teachers are what makes NB GREAT!!!
I think North Baltimore does a great job educating students. The small school atmosphere allows kids to truly get to know each other and the teachers have a sincere interest in the students. I sat through a parent/teacher conference where every teacher in the high school took time to say positive things. The teachers are what makes NB great!
This school system is failing in most grades and in almost all subjects. When my son came to this district in the fourth grade, he came from Toledo Christian and was two and a half grades ahead. At that time, he was an A student. Due to the low standards here he was not given the opportunity to be challanged. Instead... he grew stagnant and complacent. This is not a good environment for growth. He has now been here for three and a half years and is now a D student. He sat in class learning nothing new until last year. Unfortunately, because it was all too easy for so long....he now lacks the study skills required for this level of learning. Instead of being gifted and excelling in this school system, he has slowly deteriorated and now needs help just maintaining C's. The teachers seem burned out.
