Setting high standards
We can't reach or exceed expectations if there are never any set! I appreciate the standards of conduct that have been placed on the students; no swearing, limiting pda, tolerating people's differences. I want my kids to be challenged to be the best that they can be, now, and into the future!
I appreciate the teachers responding to emails or concerns
Every time that I have ever emailed a teacher or coach for information, they have always responded quickly, and were very nice and helpful. That is great and I appreciate it.
Celebration and recognition across ALL departments
I appreciate that students are more regularly being recognized for their academic achievements, as well as their achievements in the arts. We are more than simply a school that churns out athletes and I am glad our social media is beginning to reflect that reality.
I am able to check my child's progress weekly and, with the exception of one class, the data is always up-to-date. This has helped my student be responsible about ensuring her work is submitted in a timely manner. Last year in middle school many teachers were chronically behind in Power School.
Variety of course offerings for students at the higher end of the spectrum
There are many course paths for students interested in science, math, art, music, language, engineering, medical, etc
