School Reviews

2  7/1/2007
this school has very little to provide when it comes to meeting an individual students needs, as well as making sure that they are actually learning the material. the restrictions and rules are so copious as to make this establishment morbidly comical. extracurricular activities are also extremely limited. there are a few sprts clubs, but that's it. students rarely get put in the elective classes they actually select without having their parents talk to the counselor at least a few times. as far as i can tell, there is little or no parental involvement-, rather, this school babysits the children within it. the curriculum is depressingly bad-, students are required to take a Communications class all year that, in fact, has very little to do with the actual study of communications and public relations. the homework level is unreasonable and prevents any average student from speding time with their family. the building itself is also depressing-, there are no windows in any of the classrooms, which in fact, reduces the students ability to learn by 25 percent. the staff pays NO respect to students, and spend most of their time NOT doing their work. you may say i'm exaggerating, but every student that transfers out of trailridge is lucky enough to have a chance at real education. thanks goodness it only has two grades available.
