2010th grade1st. Get their act together. Personal experience: I submitted a math class change request form a day before school started. They lost it. I submitted another one a couple days later. They changed it without notifying me, so I cut math one day and missed a test (fortunately my teacher let me make it up). 2nd. Repeal your anti-schedule change policy. That's sort of their job: to fix student's schedules.Male0

2510th gradeI like one-on-one time with my TA because I feel like in a large group our individual needs are not necessarily met, since you do not really get to talk seriously about college/after high school plans. I also feel that in large group we should talk a bit more about colleges and career choices.Female2

8010th gradeI would feel slightly better if my TA had higher expectations for the colleges we will apply to - mine believes that any option is fine. I understand that this is true for many people, but in a community like Palo Alto, with such high-achieving parents and career options, I believe that TAs should expect and give advice towards a higher level of success for his or her students.Female0
