Scotia-Glenville Senior High School Reviews

IT is a small school with much focus on sports. There could be more communication with parents especially from the guidance office with regards to college prep. Very weak in this department. No clue even what they really do for a student headed to college. In regards to students who have an Individual education plan, there is minimal discussion regarding the college experience or preparing for it , should not wait until senior year to find out information regarding assistance to getting a job or going to college for those students with Individual education plan. My experience is to figure it out on my own. Some teachers are above and beyond while others are mediocre such as in the math department.

I think there have been many chances for our voices to be heard but in other areas we are lacking. My class has just recently gotten to voice our opinions on our graduation cap and gown color which was amazing because the tradition was going to be changed. Everyone was allowed to give their opinion and I think that brought everyone closer as a whole. As for the academics of our school, our teachers need some work. While many of them are nice teachers who teach very well, there are some teachers that do not teach at all. The school does not notice this because the teachers put on an act when they are being examined. The teachers even tell us that they have randomly planned lessons in case they are going to be examined. Also, teachers use videos for notes. We have to watch our notes for homework. This is just an outrageously bad idea because the videos are 40 minutes long. I just sat in your class for 40 minutes and got nothing done while you could have taught us these notes!
The school is made up of predominantly white students and teachers. I grew up in a school where there were many ethnicities, religions, and sexual orientations. When I move to Scotia, I really felt a culture shock because I wasn't used to a school with no teachers that are people of color. I wish that I had been able to have that guidance in my high school, and I know there are a lot of students who would say the same. Having a teacher that is most like you helps you to connect with them and helps them understand what the student has been through without judgement.
