    Pros

    Teachers are helpful; there are some really great parents. All classrooms have Promethean Boards and many have laptop carts of computers for student use.

    Cons

    Administration is not teacher-friendly. Students' complaints-- even those that are not legitimate-- are treated as fact even when proven to be false. Discipline is a nightmare and sometimes non-existent.

    Advice to Management

    Realize that teachers are the most important resource for student learning. Treat teachers like colleagues instead of the enemy. Don't convince students that teachers don't care about student well-being; instead, let them know that teachers are trying to raise them to be strong, successful, productive citizens and human beings.
