Open Quote Bad leadership, parents are snubbed by administration, no communication, a lot of their decisions do not make sense. They also have put up a cell tower inside the school/district grounds which may not be in the health interests of the kids. Not sure if it was properly approved and an EIA study done prior to the decision being taken. Close Quote

Open Quote The change in administration at this school 3 years ago was for the worse.

The philosophy of this school is that parental involvement is neither needed nor required. Junior High kids are unique and parents should not participate in activities. This is why honors student recognitions take place when parents are unable to attend - in the middle of the day.

Communication for the administration is virtually none.

Starting in 2010/11, there will be no electives offered. The district claims that it is because of the budget crisis.

In the 2008/09 school year, the budget study committee overwhelmingly recommended closing Ida Jew which would have resulted in a savings of $1,500,000. Instead, the board decided to keep the school open (presently under enrolled) and the superintendent kicked out all of the inter-district transfers because he has upset with them for involving the media in trying to keep the school open. This resulted in the loss of $500,000.

In summary, the poor stewardship of the Mount Pleasant Elementary School District resulted in a loss of $2,000,000 to the district. The district also layed off teachers but not a single district office employee was let go. They were all moved to positions funded by monies that could not be touched. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
