I did appreciate the close knit environment of the Kindergarten teachers and their classrooms. The year seemed to be just another year of preschool. Safety on the playground was very inconsistent. When my son was injured on the playground the nurses aid, instead of giving him ice right away, made him go further distance for first aid. Getting into the school to pick up my child was disorganized and inconsistent. There were no extracurriculars available for the Kindergarten boys. Poor Communication to Parents We are not returning in 07-08. Not academically challenging enough.
As far as academics go, I can't complain. But the administration does not do its job in keeping children safe. For example, an extracurricular activity was cancelled one day, I was not notified, and my 8 year old stayed on the field unsupervised for an hour after school. My son has been constantly bullied since he started attending this school, and the administration has done nothing to stop the situation.
