Even though the school has some undeniable flaws, the people inside are amazing and supportive.

Extremely weak eclectic curriculum and instructional materials, poor presentation, especially in math and science. Teachers don't understand elementary laws and patterns of human learning, let alone any advanced pedagogical techniques. Adherence to “discovering/minimum instruction method”: no explanations provided, just “activities” to do from the book, which doesn’t have any explanations either. Then teachers just register who managed to “get it” and who didn’t. Horrific failure rates the administration refuses to disclose. Teachers have in their contract a right to not post grades for FIVE WEEKS! They constantly “lose” submitted assignments and then give students Fs for them. No way to prove that it was not student’s fault. No communication to parents about problems except in final grade reports. No graded papers allowed to be taken home – come and see them during your work day if you want and can. Unethical behavior of some teachers, insulting and psychologically traumatizing students.
