I have my 3 children attending. They are involved in GT, Choir and Honors Choir. GT - Semester 1, go to a class one day out of the week, research this person in your group, do a presentation, semester 2, same thing. I was expecting challenging work that would help them find out their strength or niche. Extracurricular Act - No computer, science, technology Choir - Energetic director, only 2 show a year Sports - Turns out, they are coached by parent volunteers (which is great), but if you don't know them, don't expect your child to make it or to be called for tryouts. Teachers - Well, there are some good ones, and some that lack, a lot. Some have favorites. This year, my 1st grader's teacher had a favorite students. She would mention to the class, so-and-so is the smartest in the class. It was not to raise a shy child's spirit. She only worked that child to get into GT. She reached out to me the day before it was due. My child got in. Principal - Energetic and involved with parents' concerns. When I brought issues up, they were addressed within the week. Education - Based on the test, not on the how's and why's, the basics. This is my perception. Perception is reality.
