This school is actually a good school if you go to it now! The one-way hallways aren't as crowded and you can make it to the other side of the school in less than two minutes. You can wear tank tops as long as they are wider than three fingers. You can dye ALL of your hair and use self-defense. There aren't as many fights as there used to be and the teachers are overall very nice. Some of the advanced kids are not doing very well though, there is one class in particular, which is behind the regular classes. They let you inside the school at above 40 degrees (sometimes even 50 degrees) and below. Whenever it rains, snows, or is below 60 degrees, they let you inside the school. The principals are very nice and try their best all the time and try to bring fun programs to our school! One of the things I do not like about them is one of the counselors. One of them works at another school and is rarely even here at this school! I once signed up to speak to her and I never got called down. To get one of my classes switched, I had to ask another counselor. The counselor I have is strict and since she is never here, most of the kids have to meet with another counselor. Overall, I think it is a good school but it could use some work.

Over all the school seems pretty fine it's just the students that impact how the school is. There is way too much drama in the school there is more drama than actual learning. Then the teachers wonder why the NWEA scores are so low it's because some of the teachers need to stop being so clueless and actually think about what the kids like. But the lunches seem ok but the lunch ladies are very silent the school would be even better if everyone interacted with each other. The amount of time that students have to get from class to class is reasonable but another extra minute or two would be even more helpful. The school is trying their hardest to stop the tomfoolery but it never seems to work. Also some languages should be included in electives again such as German and not just Spanish and French.

I honestly do not like this school. Students are rude to my daughter all the time. They have very strict rules in the code of conduct like how students can't dye their hair certain colors. And students can't wear tank tops, i understand not the thin ones but not even a muscle top will please them. What do you want my kid to do? Where a turtleneck when it's 70 degrees outside? And they have this thing my daughter tells me about and it's called the one way hallway. And that makes her late for class and she gets in trouble for it. She said it is supposed to stop fights but it seems like everyday there is a fight. And at that school you can't do self-defense. That makes no sense. If my child gets hit on i will expect her to fight back. But no she would get suspened, a ticket, and a court date. Do these people want my daughter to get hurt without defending? Also they let students come to school when it's more than 20 below zero. Why does other schools take the day off but that school doesn't. I am very unhappy with this school. I wish i can switch her to different schools.

In light of an upcoming study on Montessori education in South Carolina, as well as the growing popularity of the Montessori Method in public charter schools, we’ll take a look at the principles behind Montessori education and whether it is an effective method for preparing some students for the professional world or higher education.
Across the nation, city mayors have increased their role and control over the local public school system. Learn about the controversies and the ramifications of mayoral control.
In light of all the finger-pointing occurring in the education reform movement, we’ll look at the good and bad of teachers unions – and whether these organizations really work in favor of students and/or teachers.
