While there are a few excellent teachers in the Middle School, some of them lack the skills necessary to handle the behavior of their students who face the challenges of puberty & they do not communicate openly with parents, nor do they foster a positive parent-teacher relationship. They refuse to have a parent teacher conference unless they are having problems with a student, at which time you are 'invited'. In the combined 8 years my children have attended this school, I have had a single conference. The atmosphere they created was extremely uncomfortable. I felt like I was on trial. I was confused & asked why they sent home a report with all A's and positive comments. They said it was not their job to tell me 'every little thing'. There are not enough text books so the students are 'spoon-fed' the info leading to mediocrity in the curriculum.
