I should have listened to you and had my kids go to Bothell. Also the school should track the number of IB kids that drop out of college or get kicked out because of failing grades. It will be a high percent!
There are only a few teachers at this school that really teach and care about the students. Most teachers will give you a F on a paper if the corners are bent on the paper. Most are just going through the motions to get a check. The biggest joke of a class is their "leadership" class. I believe they made this class up to give the two wort so called teachers a job. Survey the kids, one of the worst classes at Inglemoor!
There is a great selection of families and students here with honors, IB , vocational ans professional tracks. A comfortable place for everyone- the students enjoy what the learn and teachers are available to them.
This school is TERRIBLE for special needs students. Over the 3 years my child has attended, each year I have had to fight to have his IEP followed. It is the law! Multiple phone calls and meetings with VP, P, and Spec.Ed. district director - and still, there are problems. A large number of teachers never even read his IEP, and a few blatantly refused to follow it.
I hear this school is great for IB students. But this school is terrible for spec. ed. students. Had I known what my son would've experienced at Inglemoor, I would have never let him attend.
My son made it to graduation because of the dedication of his teachers to work with him and help implement a great IEP hat allowed him to succeed and even go on to ne of the local CC I never thought I would see him graduate but the teachers grabbed hold of him and encouraged supported and made it happen for him I am forever grateful for the amazing job his IEP Case manager speech therapist and special ed teachers made in his life.
Inglemoor has a rigorous academic program and diverse opportunities for involvement. On the positive side the level of acheivement required in IB classes prepares students exceptionally well for college and beyond. On the down side the stress and exhaustion are something parents need to be willing to support their child through. The school is very interested in keeping IB enrollment high but unaware perhaps of the exceedingly stressful situation created by demanding programs and certainly the school is not prepared to offer tutoring or supportive resources. That is on the parents dime, (a math teachers website recommendation " you form a study group or get a tutor" if struggling supports this statement. He does not offer personel assistance or suggest that their is an on sight math help center) My hard working honor student will make it but we have all worked together and spent a lot of money making this happen. It certainly raises for me classism and access issues.
