i am a student i dont really care to much for this school. its just constantly tests, it sucks.. they focus to much on the Keystone exams and try and rush through things. the students have no idea what the teachers are talking about. like i said i dont really care for this school. theres a lot of drama, poor staff, and they dont try and get people involved in any sports..
This so called school is waste of time for schools! I speak very fond about teachers some teachers are ex subs and there are teachers that don't know what they are talking about. The teaching there doesn't stick the child's head because there is thing of here is a worksheet do it no teaching if there is if copy these notes and do this work book page test in 2 days. No time spent with the kids to stink in the information. Worrying about PSSA is a good thing but testing a child on the same test for 4 times a year and then giving them classes with get no credit in is a waste of someone's time because why does a child want to try to get a good grade in something which the dont get something back? I can speek very proudly about a hand full of teachers.
Academic programs are far below grade level, and with the special needs children being integrated into the classroom, its hard for teachers to oversee activities easily, as they have to supply help to these learning support children. Extracurricular activites, though not many, are not lacking in quality. Parental involvement outside of sports is almost nonexistant.
The quality of acadmeic programs are alright, not great. The sports teams are well coached but do not do too well during the season. The Worst part I would have to comment on is the fact that teachers come and go monthly. New staff members rarely stay for more than a year or two.
