Note to schools seeking teachers:

Do not put stupid shit in your school description paragraph...
School plans some extensive renovations to add a new library over the summer of 1998. Enrollment of 435 students, grades 6-12. While [idiot school] follows a traditional college preparatory curriculum, the school offers three learning “tracks” for students in order to accommodate both the bright and able as well as capable, committed kids with some learning differences. Faculty of 61, 42 have masters, 4 have doctorates. Good facilities and a solid student body.
I wonder if the library's done, TEN YEARS LATER. And while I'm all for personalized education, did they really just imply that some of their students aren't "bright and able". Hey, at least everybody's "solid".

By the way, I don't care how many Olympians or millionaires your school has "produced". And I don't care how big your endowment is. Or how many dumbass Catholic schools combined to form your school.

I do, however, care what your educational philosophy is, so if more than 10% of schools could mention it, that'd be great.

Beep Are there any schools without the traditional Algebra I/Geometry/Algebra II/Pre-Calc/Calc lineup? Beep
