Maritime Academy Of Toledo The 5

My ADHD son went to a public school (a suburb of Toledo) and was getting C's, D's, and F's. His class size there was 25+ and he was wrapped up in the drama going on at his school. As his grades were falling, so was his confidence. I am very happy to say he is now getting all A's and B's! His class sizes there are approximately 12 per class. With the smaller class sizes he's getting more individualized attention. There is an after-school program Monday through Friday that is AMAZING! From 3 to 4 students have test preparation/homework help then there are enrichment activities from 4 to 6 pm. Some of activities offered are guitar, welding, boatbuilding, kayaking, cooking, nautical architecture, military history, football, drama, art club, cross country, and volleyball just to name a few. Not to mention they have a pool and a state-of-the-art navigation simulator. My son really loves the outdoors as well, so I thought this school would be a good fit for him. It wasn't an easy choice to take him out of his former school but I am so glad I did!

My older children love this school. No bullying here, over 200 cameras with audio students can't hide their actions. Great exercise program and STEM learning system. Motivated teachers, access to the latest technology, and after school homework help.

This school is a sad shame more interested in putting cash-generating kids in seats than creating a consistent learning atmosphere. Most of the instructors are diligent professionals who strive to educate the students. They are fighing a school administration that has no concept of discipline. Too many of the students are medicated for various "learning disabilities". Too many students are under court-ordered supervision. The administration is a disgrace. The only saving grace of this place is the intention of providing continuing education for adult aspiring mariners- Fortunately that curriculum is dicated by the US Coast Guard and the Maritime administration. Do not send a child you care about to this disgraceful institution. Find another, better managed institution.

The Maritime Academy of Toledo is a phenomenal idea, however the superintendent is not fit to lead. I have reviewed her lesson plan system, and must say that it is rather dubious to have a system implemented at a high school level, which was written for children from birth to age 12. I am saddened that the "good old boys (or girls in this case)" of public administrators allows an administrator who has no experience in running schools to be in charge of these children's future. TPS is by far a more superior schools system, and that is not a comment that many would ever say.
