School Reviews

The quality of academic program is insufficient because the teachers don't teach, the teachers rely on the students to teach themselves or its the parent job to teach. The teachers especially Hutchinson, Riddick and McLaughlin(how can she still teach after stealing basketball money from fundraisers)should not have any exposure to children. These three teachers really don't have the mentality to teach students(their mentality is still in elementary school). Papas is a joke and exactly what does he do besides cussing at the students. Deputy Hall needs to mentally mature and learn how to tell the truth. Overall the teachers/dare officer/principle all need to go. The respect factor is so low towards the parents. The attitude of the whole school is awful and if Mathews cares they would clean house. The part I love is if your child is in a fight no matter what age, the principle does not do anything but turn them over to Hall(dare officer) then they waste our tax dollars because you end up in court, so our tax dollars go to papas and court. One should be eliminated.
