A very real sentiment among struggling students is to fail their classes and just take credit recovery. This consists of just showing up to an abbreviated lecture series and light/easy work. The students end up passing and graduating with no real increase in skills.
TOO BIG of a school! It feels like a college rather than a school. It seems that the kids are just a number instead of a name. My daughter has a 4.0GPA but she can't even spell "average." As much as I try to teach her correct spellings, I'm having a hard time to get her teachers to take it seriously. How in the world did she get a 4.0 when she spells "skateing or loveing?" I can only do so much without her teacher's help without having to homeschool her.
Our new policy just passed - Cheaters may now retake tests. At our school we condone cheating - just take another test if you get caught.
This is a good school, but it is a little large. The tech ed program is pretty good, but they seem to be more focused on teaching the 'average' student. Since my son was a freshman two years ago, they have dropped almost all computer related classes. The band program is great, but like everything else, they are losing funding to give teachers raises and pay for sports.
