Teachers do not push students to their full potential but do as much as possible to simply pass students without really teaching but just giving graded easy busy work to pass students.
Teachers really care about their students here. I have a couple of friends who have gone to the one of the Ivy League schools. Overall very happy.
As a parent of three children who attended this school , all of which are very different academically , I'm disappointed with the administration and their inability to provide resources for more success. I find the closure of the Alternative location on Hamburg Turnpike to be detrimental to students who still require such an atmosphere to thrive academically and socially in smaller settings. The Board having made this decision has left improper guidance and resources for many students who have and need attention for a successful High School opportunity.
There are some students here who try and do their best to succeed, but it is these students that suffer from a lack of respect and opportunity. Instead of accommodating those who try to best represent the school, the administration tends to get in the way and make it harder for exceptional students to succeed while making things easier for and babying the worse students. Cuts always come from the programs for the highest achievers, while athletic programs get to keep their money and threats of cuts for them are met with fury throughout. Money is frequently spent uselessly on improving the fields or the track while little is spent on academic extracurricular activities. The school does have good offerings and the few dedicated students can succeed, but this is often because of something within the student and not because of the school.
