Alliance Alice M. Baxter College-Ready High School Reviews
I believe Baxter High School far exceeded my expectation of a charter-public school due to the challenging college prep curriculum it offers. Prior to attending Baxter High School, I attended Catholic School Kinder to 10th grade. My transition and morning commute of 44 miles is challenging, but well worth it. At Baxter, I am given the opportunity to thrive in a small class setting. I not only became a stronger writer, but I am now in Italian 3 and tested out of my special Ed program. After 11 years in private school, Baxter High School identified I struggled in English class due to a slight learning disorder. Although our curriculum and college readiness is set in place, I would like for future students to have more events, stronger student culture, and school spirit.
The main thing I like is that it trains students to be independent. Students are given deadlines to pass an assessment and they're expected to find and use the resources to do so. Also, there are close relationships between the students and staff. This school is small so you're given the one on one attention and support you need. Every week teachers hold a session of office hours, which is an opportunity to get support from teachers, peer tutor, catch up on late work, etc. However, there is a lot of work and effort that goes into passing classes. Earning lower than a C isn't passing. You must also learn additional content to earn A's. One thing I'd like to see improve is the school's consistency. The policies and systems are constantly changed. Although they're made for the students' benefit, it affects them negatively. They constantly have to adjust to the new changes which causes a lot of confusion and complications in doing what is necessary to pass.
I enjoy attending Baxter High School because it is a small school so you are able to connect with everyone. Baxter focuses on preparing the students to go to college. They push their students to do the best they can do. Although, Baxter does focus on seeing their students successful they are not very organized. Baxter suffers from a lack of communication to its students. Many of the administration doesn't let the students know what is occurring until the actual day so it makes it hard for us to plan accordingly. Another problem with Baxter is unlike any other school we don't have the funds available to do activities to increase our school culture.
