Santa Fe Public Schools Reviews

We are seeing budget cuts more and more every year, public schools being the ones affected I understand that this is not everybody working for the district's fault. Budget cuts force districts to lay off teachers, pushing schools far from the goal of smaller classrooms.The teachers we still have are getting paid less as if they needed more reason to quit. It inhibits economic growth because teachers are part of the local working class that goes shopping at local businesses that are part of the investors of local education. Thus, the recovery to the state budget is stagnant. In my school alone we lost the only means to recover failed credits, the school was worried about the low graduation rate dropping even more, too late now.
Over the years we had increased this rate though. our test scores were going up but very little.
Review Santa Fe Public Schools
It really depends on the school in question, it seems like there are schools that have high parent involvement and great teachers overall ,or the opposite. Facilities are being renovated so the schools are nice, focus on sports is huge.
My biggest issue is that many students did not want to be at school. Santa Fe High had guards and fences that seemed meant to keep us in rather than threats out. The teachers aren't bad if you take the AP classes, anything else is too easy and filled with delinquents bent on fighting the teacher every step of the way.
