Todd Beamer High School Reviews
I'm not sure if Todd Beamer High School realizes the serious drug problem that it has among its students. I'm also appalled that students are pretty much "encouraged" to skip class when they are told as they are leaving to be back by next period. My child laughs and jokes about this on a daily basis.
Todd Beamer Highschool is amazing. They are very wealthy and have a very wide varitety of extra curicular classes that I absolutely enjoy. Also, one of my favorite parts about the school is its wide variety of books in the library, which, i just love to read! The teachers are absolutely wonderful. I have never had a teacher that deserves a single complaint. Also, there are many opportunities to get involved in tons of clubs that make highschool an amazing experience. One of my favorite things at this highschool are the sports teams which do very well every season thanks to our amazing coaches. Punishments are the usual. If you're over 2 mintues late then you have a warning the first time. The teachers are really fair about that issue. Also, the principal is a great influence. I love my highschool it is an amazing foundation. I also think that going to this highschool has definately showed us a lot about what a hero Todd Beamer is.
Todd Beamer High School is a grossly underfunded school, your child will have to pay for internet usage, even though most of the computers don't work, or don't have a keyboard/mouse to use. Your child will have to pay to park in this public school's parking lot in which they are not guaranteed a space, and will recieve Saturday school detentions even if they're ONE MINUTE LATE. The staff does not listen to any of the students, angering a vast majority of the student body but keeps them quiet with the threat of more punishments. Most of the teachers themselves are pretty good educators, but there are some who have recieved several complaints by the students and/or parents and once again the office staff brushes their opinions aside and continues to let teachers treat students harshly.
