Lani Stern - Alumnus   (Jan 23, 2018)

Teachers were listened to, administrators were respected and there was very much an open door policy. Many considered the teachers to be their friends. Teachers would stay late daily for extra-curricular causes or just to make themselves available to talk. All were reasonable, kind people and there was an expectation to be honest and courteous. Not that it would happen often, but say for example a student skipped class to go an smoke (fooling nobody), I know of a circumstance where a teacher emailed a parent and followed up with a phone call the following day after no response. If I were a parent, that would be the ideal situation; don't isolate and scold my child, particularly not in front of others and notify me immediately so that I can discuss the gravity of the situation.
