Teacher effectiveness: Somewhat effective
Submitted by a community member · December 08, 2015
Her science teacher keeps her interested and she really likes that class a lot. The other classes, she likes too but the reading class is slow because the other students don't read as well and she gets bored because she is ahead of them.

Amount of homework: Just right
Submitted by a community member · December 08, 2015
No issues with this, although, her homework seems easy and she does not feel challenged. She breezes through it, which I guess is a good thing, because she is smart.

Develops grit: Strongly disagree
Submitted by a community member · December 08, 2015
Maybe developing a determination as far as to trying to ignore mean bullies and feeling terrible about yourself all while maintaining good grades.

Develops respect: Strongly disagree
Submitted by a community member · December 08, 2015
This school has absolutely not developed any respect amongst the students from what we have experienced.
