Had no issues at Westchester High for both of my sons. Graduation year 2014 and both went to College.
I graduated in 86... Seems over quality of education has degraded since then.. based on test scores. such a shame
Like hell on earth thank goodness it's my daughter's senior year. I have been dealing with this school since 2011 and teachers were losing my son's class notebooks that were to stay in class which effected his grade, losing homework in stacks of papers on their desk which also effected his grade but put the blame on him. No remorse or apology and even now with my daughter teachers have accused her of copying students homework only to find it didn't happen, still no remorse nor apology. How do you teach your children at home to respect their elders when the elders don't respect them. They have no mutual respect for these child that will soon become adults. I hate this school!
As a local community member living in a caucasian neighborhood, Westchester, I hope more local kids will attend to increase the school population to become more diverse. Too often, the neighborhood parents think they have to send their children to other schools b/c the school is not diverse enough. Great new principal. My only suggestion is that perhaps they might introduce one more program. A gifted or highly gifted program where these kids just take classes together as one group (no mixing with the other non-gifted programs). When parents see a program where these gifted kids can work at a higher pace and caliber, the school will become a more desirable place to go to. They can start with just one class. The new principal recruited new teachers from stellar schools who are so impressive that I doubt even the private schools have such teachers. Why? Public schools pay twice as much to their teachers than private schools do. Surprised?? Please remember most private schools are for profit. If u were a credentialed high caliber teacher, where would you teach? Public school! They also have better benefits. Private schools do NOT require their teachers be credentialed.
