There is no persistence. Excuses get everyone through. If a child doesn't get a assignment turned in on time it should be an f. But we let kids play excuses and let them have grades instead of earning them. What is going to happen in real world when there deadline has approached and there not done. Blames someone else.
I have not found anything great about this school. I have signed up for everything possible through parent portal and still can not follow or see a teachers plan. No comments by teachers. No contact with parents at all treat children as adults don't even include parents when scheduling for following year. This is not what I expected from this school.
I have never gotten this feeling from the school. The staff are annoyed by questions call counsellors with problems about a class they push you off to someone else. There is no take responsibility in staff. If staff don't care then our children won't either.
Really...?? People love this school? It seems like the teachers w/ the time under their belts are just going through the motions. The few great teachers are young and newer... but overall I think it's terrible. Not to mention that there is no real curriculum you can follow, no calender of what is happening in class, no teachers plan, no accountability. Maybe I'm expecting too much, but the classes are A day and B day, so it's not like the staff teaches the same class 5 days a week. You'd think that for parents and students sake a basic outline could be created. I was met with excuses and impatience when I asked a couple teachers about it... 'well, every student is at a different level' ... I don't know what that has to do with their lesson plan. Utah is supposedly going to "core curriculum" this year, but my child is coloring in 8th grade math, has no book and who knows what's happening in English. I don't, but it isn't reading. No book assignments. It also isn't vocab or parts of speech or anything else remotely related to what kids need when they attend college. It seems like most of the staff is just going through the motions... sad and frustrating for us.
