Deans don't care about students.
The school Only cares about Stats...
Told my daughters Dean about issues of Vaping didn't really want to face the responsibility of it.
Acknowledge it but literally didn't care.
Last year told Dean about my daughter being Bullied in a parent/teacher learning conversation they totally ignored it...
Didn't offer any counselling or mention of any support network with regards to helping my child stay in school was more than obliging when I mentioned De-enrolling her.
Deans/Teachers cant handle their students because the students pretty much teach themselves..the kids run the school ...the teachers are just the shell of the school which has no Soul, no Aiga, no Whanau, no Family about that school.
It's alright. It's really great for people who are more "out of the box" as it has lots of students who all come from different backgrounds. Since there are heaps of students you will most likely find people who share the same passions and interests as you. They have lots of after school activities and clubs you can join. But the downsides are since it is such a big school you don't get as much individual support . Plus there are many students that are not too well behaved. For the teachers, there are some great ones and some pretty bad ones, it's kind of a lucky dip. For me it is has been pretty average. It's been great for my mental health and okay for academic success. Overall I'd say it's not bad but not amazing either.
