Bright Beginnings School #1
Teacher effectiveness: Very ineffective

Without guidance on objective methods to teaching, the teachers cannot be effective. The methods they use to teach have not been proven.

When they make your child feel stupid, they do not develop persistence, grit, and determination.

No, they will discard a student immediately without any evidence based objective testing. They frankly will make you feel your child is stupid.

The school does not, it is the families that do. The principal Karen Edris is a dishonest rude person.

I would avoid Bright Beginnings School at all costs... They take on more pre-kindergarten students than they can handle, thus their solution is to fail half the class before arrival to kindergarten. Their tactic is to first tell you your child is accepted, but when they find out they cannot handle the students, 5 months later they change their mind (all while not returning you your deposit). As most people know, schools in Arizona cannot hold students back until after 3rd grade. Karen Edris (the principal) will go out of your way to make you feel your kid is too stupid to be in kindergarten without any objective evidence based testing. When you complain to their board, she will completely change her story. DO NOT send your child to this school.

Mrs. Crowe from the Pre-K class is the best! My two boys learned a lot from her and had fun in the past years. But the school administration and teacher team seems not very stable; the turn over ratio is pretty high. Now they even have a new owner and new principal...

Mrs. Crowe and Ms. Russell from the pre-K class. They are very nice and passionate to educate kids.

I disagree with the type of discipline they use at the kindergarten level. They tell the child to move their magnet from the green chalkboard to the yellow and then to the red chalkboard. They aren't clear with the child why they are moving their magnet and at the end of the day, if they stay on the green they get a low quality xerox copy of an animal. This is a shame and reward based system that is absolutely ineffective at teaching the children any values of behavior at a sincere level.

These teachers are so dedicated and passionate about what they do. Many of them I know spend hours at home working on their lessons and/or attending events to support their students even when it is outside of school.

Teachers expect a lot students, but they also work hard to help students become successful.
