Because of the teachers backgrounds they train their students to never ever give up. That you success stories of themselves and their children to encourage other students to do their best and everything that they could possibly do.
In this school everyone is even. Students are usually same in the hierarchy as teachers. Teachers and administrators have authoritative responsibilities but do not get caught up in their position to not allow the students to have Freedom.
An inappropriate incident took place in our child's class but the principal immediately sided with the teacher, despite the ability to disprove them, therefore I do not have faith in administrators ability to remain neutral while investigating matters relating to their employees.
Although, there are some really good teachers and office staff, there are numerous teachers who have no place being in a classroom, and there are administrators more than willing to cover up bad adult behavior. This year's 8th grade team consisted of several first year teachers who were not experienced enough to teach core courses. Coaches teaching core classes was a major issue because they lacked skill and professionalism. The kids even read a book about murder in class this year called "I know what you did last summer." We parents were not even notified. Children even had Unqualified teachers- teaching a core class! We got the district letter about unqualified teachers after the fact! The sad part is that this would have never taken place at some of the schools in the ritzy neighborhoods within the district . Our children were one big experiment this year. The first year teachers got to practice on our kids while the wealthier students at other schools in the district got a solid education. The principal at this school was also a major let down because he couldn't get his employees under control and he wasn't really implementing change. In other words, he didn't care and he was your typical public school official.
