Alum: I had a good experience at CWHS. I have my favorite teachers, and I became comfortable with how everything was run enough to try to change some things. I would like to see the Hybrid Initiative change a lot. The idea of having each teacher incorporate technology into their classroom seems great. However, the approach is less than useful. Mandating how much direct instruction, independent, and collaborative learning there is may sound great on paper, but when the teacher is thrown into this with little knowledge of technology, it shows. The answer is not always training in my opinion. Teachers already have their lesson plans done and have the ever-changing curriculum with which to deal. Our school board did not want to hear about the students' concerns about Hybrid, and the teachers didn't have a lot of say in the matter either.
Overall, I'm not unhappy with the education I received, and I am thankful for the opportunities and memories that I have from High School.
