Principal knows all the kids by names. Has maintained positive relationships with students by actively engaging in recess activities with the children. Seems to support a feeling of the student's cooperation with adhering to school rules. Concern that principal has a tendency to automatically side with staff without seriously considering or investigating parental concerns or input. Front office staff selectively rude and unprofessional. Passive aggressive regarding concerns. Special education department lacking current remediation for reading, writing and math that can be found in many other district schools. Special Ed teacher difficult to work with and instrumental in beginning of disparaging feelings with other staff members. Kids with different learning styles are shorted at this school. Special education department way behind current research and remediation techniques. Prinipal has poor record of returning calls. Teacher's are afraid to speak out on behalf of student's due to fear of reprisal's.
My sons class has been very disappointing. Poor teacher attendance, poor organization, and poor communication with parents. The school looks very shiny and new, but experience and time goes a long way.
Great school. The campus is very inviting and the students and staff seem very happy and helpful.
Wonderful staff. Approachable principal. Mrs. Allison's K-Prep class is structured and the children respect and enjoy her. The kids learn with enthusiam in her class.
I am very disappointed in the communication with the principal. I felt he did not take my concerns seriously and nothing was resolved when I left his office. The office staff is rude and never looks happy. My sister in law picked up my son in the middle of the day and was never asked who she was or checked to see if she was authorized to take my son. The kindergarten was a huge disappointment. My son did things that he did in Pre School and the teacher did not have any control over the class.
This school has proven to be a huge disappointment. The principal and staff are difficult to talk to. The administration has failed to protect my children from bullies. The staff refused my child to call his mother when he repeatedly asked to call. They rarely if ever return phone calls and are curt and unprofessional.
Excellent new school in the area. Lots of activities for parents and children. Homework is plentiful and appropriate for age and school grade. Teachers are well educated and educate well!
