ProsTeaching staff possesses a good academic background & cares about the students. There was a great deal of camaraderie. Community pride in the school is evident.

ConsNone of the past three lead administrators of the high school have had experience in teaching academic classes, yet are assigned to evaluate academic course teachers. The corporation has apparently accepted the current education reform model that uses standardized testing as the primary means of determining academic achievement for all grade levels. Too much emphasis on preparing students, especially elementary level, for testing. Lack of opportunities exist for the most gifted students in all grade levels. Teachers are expected to conform to a particular behavior-oriented style of instruction, regardless of the course, class, or group of students.

Advice to Senior ManagementLet the teachers teach! The staff knows more about appropriate child development and academic teaching than does the administration that are "evaluating" them. Reject the statehouse's politically led, un-supported "reform" models & mandates and serve YOUR community.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
