There are many great teacher in our school, however, their are some teachers that I am unable to connect with. There are a lot a teachers who are trying to find different way to reach to students. With the new grading, I feel that teachers don't know who to grade that new style. Standard Base Grading (SBG) is not understood by many of the students, teachers and other staff. I feel that Standard Base Grading is not efficient in the school, as of right now, and I believe in order to improve the school, the school needs to solve the problems of SBG. The teachers are many teachers who are knowledgeable, and want to make each and every student grow as human beings.
We just put in a state-of-the-art library/resource room. It has amazing computer abilities that most teachers are just learning about. Even the chairs and work areas are super cool. Parents had a lot to do with this. Also, I am taking several college classes, one online. They really encourage that!
