Thoreau Demonstration Academy Ratings & Reviews

September 28, 2017 Submitted by a parent
We had high hopes for our child at Thoreau. Ultimately, this school did our child more harm than good. The current and former principal's philosophy is to spend money hiring more low-paid assistants and fewer actual teachers. The result is extremely large class sizes, teachers who cannot get to know their students, high levels of frustration and difficulty finding and keeping quality teachers. Forty students in a class is the norm. This year, there are classes with 50 students in a room. The result is very detrimental to students who are not assertive or extroverted. While a shy kid, our son actually loves to make personal connections with teachers and administrators and always did so in elementary school and again (now) in high school. However, in the three years he was at Thoreau, he made not one personal connection with a teacher and in fact was barely ever spoken to in his core classes. Teachers are supposed to have the freedom to bring students out of their shell, but when there are that many students in a class, they are treated as cattle, not as individuals. On a good day, my son felt completely invisible at this school. On bad days, he felt misunderstood and unwelcome.

I have seen my daughter come out of her shell in her first year. Morning and afternoon tribe helps her be aware that different is good. Diverse backgrounds, cultures and grade levels and know they are "feeling" quite similar. Round tables in the large low lit classroom makes for a more relax approach to learning. Her mandatory volunteer semester project had her thinking of how to help the best way possible. Having her think outside "her needs" not just for a grade. Emerald city has her learning how to work for your money and go after the job you want. Complete with resume and interview. Working not always your dream job but earning those hard earned emeralds and enjoying her "day off".Living a mini real life balancing school, work, sports and fun. Has worked well with her and makes me a happy parent. You know your child and and not a perfect fit for everyone. I am glad we made that choice together. Highly recommend shadowing when open spots available.

Great school with lots of opportunities for kids. Sadly, budget cuts have limited some ways to get kiddos involved. Teachers are respectful and helpful. Class sizes are very large, but I saw good results.

As a student I didn't like the large classes. I also didn't care for micro-society. Many teachers have favorites and try to be popular by joking with the "in crowd". This school LOVES athletes... Idolizes them. I witnessed a cheerleader doing handsprings in the hall, teachers applauding. My friend got in trouble for bumping someone in the crowded hall during class exchange!!! Whatevs. This was not the right school for me. I wish I could get those years of my life back!

1) Uniform code isn't enforced for all students. Many girls wear their skirts too short, way above the TPS policy of a dollar bill width...like micro-minis from the 1960's. Yet a student forgets to wear a belt and receives a summons. 2) 40 students per classroom- no individualized help when needed. One teacher in classroom with an assistant, but the teacher directs the class and the assistant doesn't participate in instructing the class.3) Micro-society is mandatory and that time could be better spent on core class instruction.4) Two years ago, a 6th grade math teacher rewarded the quick learners, all "A" students, by allowing them to sit at the front by the Smartboard. So, the students struggling in the class, many from not being able to see the board or hear the teacher ( as there are 40 students per class ) were punished and put on display in the back of the classroom.5) 6th grade: some, (not all), students allowed to use calculators in class and on exams.6) 7th grade supply lists includes a calculator and mandates calculators be brought to class.. Yet students are told they can't use a calculator, not even to double check their homework assignments. What is the point of purchasing the calculator?7) Too many projects assigned, and often multiple projects due at same time from multiple classes. This along with regularly assigned homework. My student gained nothing from these projects.This family does not recommend this school.
