hey guys, What is the overall atmosphere of your school like? I know every school has higher achieving and better behaved students, as well as lower achieving and students that has more behavior problems….but what is your school like as a whole? I am lucky enough to work at a school where the students overall have a good attitude and the overall atmosphere of the school is that they need to work hard to pass each class. I work at a school that has the mastery system. This means that every student has to achieve a 90% in a class in order to pass it. This means students often have to take a class more than once until they master it… this is not looked at negatively, it is not looked at as failing the class.
