Calgary Arts AcademyEdit
The turn over of staff is an indication of the lack of decent leadership. In two years over 12 teachers have left? And not just to maternity leaves. There is quite a bit of "bullying" by management to the staff. I felt very sorry for them. Unrealistic goals for them to attain. As for the education, Jubilee and other performances take over and the learning of the curriculum goes by the wayside. The arts education is a fabulous idea! There needs to be a balance and kinder leadership.
Pretty good school but I wouldn't recommend it if you wannna get a good job
If you send your children to this school, you are subjecting them to a K-9 career of constant harassment, incompetent teachers, awful curriculum, and a very, very depressing atmosphere. Their pathetic attempt to focus on art completely overrides any useful curriculum. What you will get isn't a student skilled in art and academics, you get an uneducated zombie that knows first-grade art level skills at best with everything else that they should've learned from K-9 unaccounted for.
