Most teachers are excellent, but with poor leadership it is hard for a school as a whole to excel. Negative atmosphere. Not willing to work with parents. 75% of students' grades in every class based on what they call formative assessments which amounts to written tests in most classes. Some teachers do better formative assessments. But, because the principal just announced that every teacher had to do this in every class, teachers don't have a chance to create good formative assessments. If your student is not a good test taker, this school and philosophy will probably set them back even further in that area. They are permanently nervous because they are always taking tests. They could be getting an A in a class, take a test, and be getting an F the next day due to the 75% weight. Happens regularly. My story is not unique. I've talked with many parents with the same experiences. If I had a choice, my kids would not go to this school. Mainly due to the leadership. Do appreciate the teachers and their desire to overcome the negativity and challenges posed by administration.

As a student at this school. I think this is a real great school. But there Discipline is sort of strict. Like if a few students does something wrong then sometimes the whole grade the students are in get punished. Other than that the school is great. But they need a little more sports for students. They should let the Sixt Graders Participate in some sports. It might Help our games.
