The sad thing is, this could be a great program. But for that to happen, the principal and half the faculty need to go. It seems that most teachers here just play it by ear and they pick and choose which rules/policies apply to students at their whim. The principal and several teachers are hateful and rude to students they've decided they don't like for whatever arbitrary reason. Teachers don't outline expectations on assignments clearly and then punish students for not being able to read their minds. It seems teachers are able to set their own rules, even if they contradict MISD policy. The faculty and administrators here should be the cream of the crop, but it seems ECHS gets the dredges from the barrel bottom. What really shocks me is the complete lack of parental involvement. It seems every other parent just accepts whatever happens to their student here without question. Most of the good teachers left after the 12-13 school year. Who can blame them, given their new boss? It is astounding to me that Ryder Warren deemed her worthy of promotion. The person who commented July 4th had it right. It's all about submission. They don't build students up, they crush them.
I go here and it's amazing. Yeah it can be stressful and boring but it's worth it in the end. The teachers actually teach and are always willing to help. The only people I've heard complain were students who didn't want to put in the effort. This is not a school for the lazy.
Outstanding school. My son goes there and has no problems what so ever. Teachers are a joy to work with.
Do not send your children to this school. If you teach, do not teach here unless you can work with micromanaging principles who have been counseled by MCISD for trying to show teachers how to teach their classes by trying to teach them themselves without qualifications. The principles "do not know what great teachers are," as attested to by principles in and out of MCISD. PDAS scores given when reviewed by administration were found unnecessarily harsh and demeaning. Teachers have been told not to expect to good scores because "no one makes 'Teacher of the Year' their first year." Several teachers have quit, with one teacher going to the oil field after several years at ECHS. ECHS ruined relations with the University of Texas by claiming UTPB "de-emphasized education" because of its association with the entrepreneurial Small Business Development Center. ECHS principles maintain a constant atmosphere of fear for both non-draconian teachers and for students. Emphasis is less on learning on more on submissive behavior. Many students have left the school to abandon their chance of gaining their Associates Degree at graduation because of this.
