School Reviews

  • Recommended November 19, 2007 - The teachers at this school are either incredible or incredibly undedicated. I have had, in the past two years, one completely dedicated teacher who loves his job, one teacher who loves the subject but not so much teaching, and the rest have been mediocre at best. The homework load is too intense for public school, especially since I don't learn anything in class. There are too many students and it's incredibly clique-y. Mostly, football players hang out with football players and cheerleaders, bandies with bandies, etc. Music is very big here, but mostly only band because the principal's kids were in band. They get more funding than our lacrosse team. The facilities are incredible, of course, and incredibly new. Parents are, hm, fairly involved I suppose. At least, some of them are, whereas others are completely involved. - Posted by Student/Alumni

The Parents’ Guide to Common Core
The Common Core State Standards were developed as a means to prepare K-12 students for success in college or the workforce upon graduation from high school. Since their inception, they have been adopted by 43 states. While much support has been given for the standards, many criticisms have emerged as well.
White Students are Now the Minority in U.S. Public Schools
Increasing birth rates among immigrant families from Asia and Central and South America, combined with lower birth rates among white families, means that for the first time in history, public school students in the United States are majority-minority. This shift in demographics poses difficulties for schools as they work to accommodate children of varying language abilities and socio-economic backgrounds.
