The teachers are generally extraordinary with a couple stark exceptions. The administrators are distant, inconsistent, and do not communicate well with parents on discipline issues. Significant problems appear to be ignored and small issues are blown out of proportion.
My daughter attended Mary Ellen Henderson last year and LOVED it! The teachers were young, enthusiastic and wholly dedicated to each student's academic growth. I watched in amazement as my daughter evolved from a C student to a B+ student and was thrilled when her math scores on the SOLs soared and reading skills improved dramatically. MEH is the 'gold standard' for middle schools. Parents, keep small annoyances in perspective. You've got it made.
Many of the teachers are extraordinary and will achieve in any environment. At least one weak teacher takes advantage of our affable principal, reportedly age 28, still developing her skillsets in effective management, leadership, and strategic planning.
I do not belive this school has resonsable activities for children and has very bad rutines, they also belive in promoting outside of school events such as dances and parties that go till midnight that I do not want my child going to! With all do respect I hate what this school has done to my child.
Its a very irresponsible system overall and has very little self displined! It promotes activities such as parties that go till midnight and dances at the rec center that I dont want my 5th grader attending!!
