Malaysian classrooms could do better with art integration. Reply bacon4u21 says: September 11, 2012 at 11:55 pm It's strange to me that a middle school that has strict uniform policy is preaching about arts…..don't express yourself except, through the means that we provide you!!! The school ranked 158 out of 239 middle schools (below average) while the school district outperforms it and is ranked 6 out of 25(above average). Actually look up info don't trust these people! Just look over their union contract!!!

Reply Patrick Woehl says: January 2, 2013 at 7:58 am honestly I have worked in several urban school in my little time as a teacher. Each class I would actually ask students what they thought of having to wear uniforms to school. I would say about 2 out of 3 students preferred the uniform. It was less for them worry about when getting ready and it put all on an even playing field. All of the students would add their own personality to their wardrobe to showcase their individuality. There are many ways to express yourself other than you clothes. Reply Yuri Ku says: February 9, 2014 at 3:24 am It's great to hear arts is actually being integrated into the classroom and not taken out. Just wondering, does this school also buy and implement certain resources (i.e. pearson's enVision Math or Wonders, writing matters, etc.)? I'd like to see how the arts integration is possible on top of the required resources and the time restraints.

Reply Annie Warbucks says: February 2, 2019 at 12:03 am Obviously I made NO contributions to higher scores since I was TOTALLY disposable. Maybe bc the less I weighed, the less test scores improved? Or maybe you wanted a more diverse population? Scary thing is that I would ABSOLUTELY send my children to this school. It may not appear classy on the surface, but it's top notch. I had THE best years of my life AND teaching career at this school. Thank you to those of who helped facilitate those incredible priceless years.
