Terrible just terrible. Coming to this school district from another and we are very disappointed. They seem to focus more on discipline than teaching. Don't get me wrong kids this age need discipline. However I think the punishment should fit the crime. The amount of detentions they dole out for silly reasons is alarming. I do not see how a 5 minute morning detention for talking in class the day before is effective. If a child is getting chatty in class move their seat problem solved. Now for the teachers at least some of them. Yelling and belittling is no way to run a classroom. If a student is struggling saying " I don't know why you guys do not get this it's easy" is not effective teaching. In my opinion a good teacher can look at a student's work and tell them what they did wrong. If a student is going to be made to feel stupid for asking questions they will stop asking. You would think they would be interested in improving their teaching methods since their ISTEP scores are in the toilet. I really hope the high school is run better than the middle school. These two women are not cut out to run a middle school. If you can put your child in another school do it.
