My daughter loves it and is doing very well
Terrible. Our child, a confident, intelligent person has been demoralized at this school.
For me as a parent, I felt 50/50 regarding the staff. The counselor was helpful to my new student, but it took us speaking up to get engagement. He had (from a parent's perspective) some nice teachers who seemed competent but he reported the teachers seemed to hate their job. One of his teachers was a horrible communicator other than pushing out assignments for the kids to do online. Others were good about communicating, and were good instructors. Ultimately, we chose to put our son in a private school due to safety after him witnessing fights ( 3 of about 10 throughout the year) and disrespectful students whose swearing went reportedly unaddressed by staff. I know the educators care, but seem to be stressed with large class sizes, state standards and a few disrespectful students who ruin it for the rest. There seem to be strict rules ( 3 min between class to cross a large campus, but kids also got in trouble for running to get there). The chain link fence makes it seem prison-like and there is a punitive feel at times to the school rules- over focused on easily enforced rules and underfocused on solving the bigger, tougher issues. Kids in a fight one day would be right back in class, while a good kid hustling to get to class gets publicly called out. A big difference from public school in the Midwest. His school there was rated at a 7, and is more like private schools are here. I would rate the school at a 5. This is not to put down staff- they really are nice in general, but there is a general feeling of stress in that environment. It was a bit disorganized in the enrollment process and scheduling for our transferring- in student. Our child is much happier at his new school.
My child has been bullied since 6th grade and the teachers/staff haven't done anythingto fix it. The food is 100% unsafe. My child had the stomach flu for 3 weeks from eating the school's food. I am sick if coming home to hear my daughter talking about how sad she is because of the students. Did I forget to mention the school is full of germs! Yes they have green mold full grown on the concrete, pieces of gum from far back and the sewers are completely dirty! DO NOT SEND YOUR CHILD HERE!
