    The school has a strong culture of thoughtful interaction and work hard to develop programs in the thoughtful way. The administrators are open and honest and make a concerted effort to provide students and teachers with the support that they need. The school has a very diverse academic program and work hard to reach all students.


    Like many districts, Amherst is having budgetary problems. One major factor in Amherst is a shrinking student population. This has led to tension between the district union's and the school board. During the last school year teachers were denied their contractual step-raises. The parents in the district, who are highly educated and often work for one of the universities, can be challenging to work with and can undermine your efforts in the classroom.

    Advice to Management

    I hope that the school board takes a more cooperative tone in negotiations with the teachers and staff. They have some of the best teachers, administrators, and support staff that I have ever worked with, and it would be a shame to destroy the culture of collaboration around levels into reach certain goals.
