I feel administration caters only to those parents who have "power" and "influence" meaning who knows someone in higher circles. The administration is also UNFAIR. They have different law for different people. My younger son was in a fight which he did not even start, and even though a teacher vouched for him, he got suspended for 5 days only because he defended himself - "zero tolerance" - in other words UNFAIR policy. It seems that according to administration he was supposed to just get beat up. The only fair guy I ever dealt with there is Mr. Clarke. Also, the guidance does not help as promised. They offer tutoring but the teachers are done 3pm. If you kid has no transportation, oh well, I guess you can't go to be tutored. We both work till 5pm, so no one could really help our daughter get any of tutoring at all. I am also discouraged by implementation of IEPs and/or 504 plans. The school does not honor No Child Left Behind Act. The administration is very cold and unfriendly. They will not reason with you. It is done deal once they make up their decision. I am very bitter. The teachers my kids had and have were always great with the exception of a few, but that seemed to be a personality issue more than a professional issue...overall, I loved Olivet School and PTMS. Sad to say WE HATE SCHALICK.
