This is a terrible school. I would never, ever recommend it to anyone, not even my worst enemy. I regret enrolling my daughter here. I feel so terrible for the experience that she has had. Don’t send your kids here.
Students are given too much homework. The amount of homework is outrageous.
If I had to do over, I would choose another school for my child. I like the themes and culture of the Core program, but the way it is run is not okay. Also , the autonomy given to some teachers is ridiculous. Yes, teaching styles will differ and are good but if your class is not preforming when these kids are overworked, where is the quality going to come from. The foundation is good, but the way that is run is not. Some teachers are arrogant and not willing to listen. Some comments made to my child this year were plain insensitive for a humanities magnet. My child is doing fine but at a cost of family time and rest. One extracurricular and your child will be up until midnight or later. Not healthy. My child is too far in and I have offered to move but too far in and friends keep my kid there. I see the exhaustion and anxiety in their friends eyes. I am highly disappointed. Admin step it up. I am not saying easier, I'm asking for effective without breaking a kid and a family. So in closing: Excessive useless work does not equal rigor. Admin should look into failing classes and revisit what is going on (not saying bad teachers, they get pushed around too, but some go too far). Make goal attainable for healthy students, body, mind, and family.
I have two children in the humanities magnet. The experience for them has been so much better than I imagined - I knew about the emphasis on writing, but didn't know how enriched the curriculum would be. The discussions, the incorporation of experiences, the group work, all motivate the students towards writing. This program builds connections between people. The skills they build not only are a prep. for college, but for life. I am so glad my family made the choice it did!!
