    Pros

    My colleagues, administrators and support staff are all dedicated to doing what's best to educate children. They trust the faculty to try new and innovative ideas to teach the children. This is my experience, other schools are different.

    Cons

    The short sighted bureaucrats at the district, the state and the federal government never settle on a plan and work it through until real results can be quantified. They simply roll out something new they've purchased and then give it one or two years before giving it the shaft. The amount of standardized norm referenced achievement tests is a disgrace.

    Advice to Management

    Consider using the invaluable resources you have in experienced and dedicated faculty to internally put together innovative ideas to improve the education of our children. Stop telling us there is no money to pay teachers when every year millions are paid to outside entities to implement strategies with a student population with whom they have now experience.

    Pros

    Building is newer and nice. Nice teaching staff! Assistant Principals are very nice people.

    Cons

    Portable classrooms are old and icky. Administration is not great. Principal knows very little about fundamentals of reading and math education (he was previously a physical education teacher) and relies heavily on being a foreboding presence. Assistant Principals spend the majority of their time putting out discipline fires. Pay is quite low.
