In many ways, the concept of high expectations is not just an educational or instructional issue, but also an ethical and social-justice issue. The concept of high expectations could be seen as an antipode to the often-heard phrase “the soft bigotry of low expectations,” which refers to the lowering of expectations—either intentionally or unintentionally—for certain student groups, such as minorities, low-income students, special-education students, English-language learners , and other groups that have historically underperformed or underachieved. The basic idea is that lowering expectations for certain groups only exacerbates and perpetuates the conditions that cause or contribute to lower educational, professional, financial, or cultural achievement and success. In education, the way to break this self-perpetuating “cycle of low expectations,” it is believed, is to raise academic expectations and make sure all students receive the assistance they need to reach those high expectations.
High expectations, challenge and opportunity are at the heart of our school. As soon as you enter Wrotham School you will sense the strong ethos that underlines everything we do. The achievement of our students speaks for itself and highlights the high quality teaching and support that our students receive every day.

I totally agree with this post. We don’t really have cliques, everyone kinda hops around. The cheer team sometimes believes they are better than everyone, but for the most part they’re really nice. We don’t really have “emo” kids maybe like 5 out of 1600. And lower classmen rarely see the seniors because they get to go home early if they’ve met their required credits. But then again, I live in a upper class city in Arizona, so I guess it depends on where you live. The only downside is that there’s slight prejudices because of lack of minority. I happen to be Black, sooo….., that problem is not in my favor.
