Etowah High School is a large school with so much diversity from students to studies. The classes offered at Etowah are amazing and the school community is so much fun to be a part of.
My son entered 9th grade last year and it was his best school year ever. Teachers held him accountable but contacted me if there was a disconnect. We had a new algebra teacher who was not ready in Aug. 1 meeting with admin and she had the support and resources a brand new teacher needs. My son, the teacher and the whole class went on yo be very successful. I liked all of the teachers. The faculty I encountered was tuned in and helpful on many levels. Best year ever. You get what you put into it.
As I parent in the district I am very concerned with the climate in the school. The stress, the expectations, and the evaluations have caused the atmosphere in the building to be very low. I listen to friends, professionals, and students talk about the inner workings of the building and I am alarmed at what I hear. Very little of what goes on in the building has to do with keeping the best interest of the students in mind. When I listen to my child I hear that the teachers are never teaching but trying to get massive amounts of work done to look good on paper. My child says a lot of his teachers never teach and are unavailable to any of the students' needs. It's a shame that the students are getting lost in the political shuffle at the school. They should be the number one priority and it's not like that anymore. There are special privileges for certain teachers while other teachers aren't even aware of advancement opportunities. It seems to be a popularity contest of who gets placed at the top and who gets recycled. I am concerned with the turnover in the building and we as a community need to plug in and make appropriate changes so that our teachers are protected. We need more opportunity to survey what's going on from the top down so that we can make sure our kids are going to school where the teachers are content and able to put education first and politics last.
