  • I am surprised at the other rating. I worked there for a year as an intern in a classroom while I finished high school. The staff were extremely warm and supportive, always helping to provide me with challenging opportunities and the right guidance to get through them. The school has a plethora of resources (whether or not they use them is another issue) and foster a generally good education.

    Now that I've been to college and have been learning more and more about education, etc. I have found some things to complain about. The school is not up to date with current research and doesn't push teachers to stay up to date. There are so many findings concerning project based learning, and exploration, investigation, but the teachers simply don't use them. The administration direly need to pay attention to development and really bring the school out of the dark ages. The school does provide lots of extra curriculars, a garden, etc., but it is still lacking significant development. I would love to see the teachers research the Explorer Elementary School in California and bring a lot of those techniques to the school. I would also love to see teachers use newer techniques and ideas in the classroom. I feel that many use the same curriculum from the year before with some changes here and there based on student need, etc. A big portion of the problem faced by the other poster is that a lot of the administration aren't there because they want to create a school that provides students with the life skills and knowledge to be able to learn independently in the future, a necessary ability to survive in this ever changing world.
