I would thank the nurse from last year is she were still there. She was always kind and patient with our kids and this new nurse leaves much to be desired. I don't appreciate staff being fake in front of the parents and then completely opposite in front of the students.

They cannot possibly teach these fine qualities when the staff is doing the opposite. Kids learn by example.

This schools staff doesn't act professional or empathetic towards their students. They choose to treat children with disabilities as a behavior problem rather than a disability. The teachers are protected by administration no matter how they behaved. Excuse after excuse is given and nothing in favor of the child.

The nurse has been very sweet and patient, as well as making sure to update parents about their students.

Teachers treat students with disabilities as if their disability is a behavioral issue, rather than a legitimate disability. However, they pick and choose the students they mistreat in this way.

No, because it shows strong racial biases, as well as a bias toward students with disabilities.

Teachers punish students based on who they like more. They punish students for things they didn't actually see for themselves, and some students are told things like, "I'll believe other students over you."

Amount of homework:
SCHOOL LEADER
Homework is a way for AA scholars to get the practice they need to work toward a high level of rigor in their classroom. In the real world, practice, additional learning, and determination are required for success in life.

Develops respect:

Each campus has a Discipline Administrator who works with campus administration to build a sense of community, respect, and caring.

AA is a "faith friendly" District. HS students are required to participate in community service hours.
