Maritime Academy Cs (2275 Bridge St) Comment
The school itself is just okay. The teachers and staff go above and beyond to help the students thrive. My only problem is that they do not do or have enough activities for the students in the high school. No Freshman Dance, No Soph-hop, previous formal dances have been canceled, due to lack of participation. It seems as though the students do not want to attend these events because they are held in the lunchroom. I do believe that if they put a little more effort into their planning, the students would attend these events. They recently formed a home & school association for the high school. From what I've been told, the home & school WANTS to run these events and make their high school years memorable, however, the new principal and the school counselor shoots everything down and will not allow the home & school the chance to do anything. Their senior class trip goes to Camelback for a day. That is something that most of these kids can do on their own, give them a trip to look forward to like all other schools do. You get what you give and if you're not giving, you're not going to get what you want out of the students. They're in high school, treat them as such. They don't want grade school events. They are a little strict with their uniform policy, but that is a good thing. As long as your child follows the policy, there aren't any issues. They're very strict with their attendance policy, but again, that is a good thing. As for the teachers, I've only experienced an issue with 1 teacher who lacks entering the students grades. Other than that, most of them are on point. They had a new principal at the high school this year. I haven't had much contact with her, but she seems as if she does not have a clue as to what is going on. I've seen her speak with other parents and she speaks to them, like they are children. If your student excels, they will have no issues, as they are labeled as "favorites" immediately. If your child has any issues, they do not care.
