Stay away from this place. We took our children away from this school because of the lousy administration, lousy teaching, lousy self-paced, and lousy overall quality of an education. Our children now attend a different charter school and I know their education level will be much better than at this place. By the way, it means nothing to be a blue ribbon school. This is not an award, but a bunch of forms filled out that exaggerates the school.
This is a horrible school. I don't know how one parent says their child is learning spanish in Kindergarden, because they don't offer it anymore. The teachers have no idea how to keep the childern focused. My child gets into trouble for finishing work early and then not sitting quitely until everyone else is done. I can't get the teacher to give them something else to do! There was a child that looked about 10 in the spelling bee this year and couldn't spell 'ill'. I'm suprprised parents are rating this school so high. Everyone I've sponken with is looking for new schools.
I am a parent of a Kindergarten student and am glad that I decided to enroll my son at this school. My son already knows all of his continents and is learning Spanish, sign language, and gets to do tae kwon do and dance. I like that they get to check out books from the library every Thursday. This is the closest thing to a private education in a public school. I would; however, like to see more opportunities for parents of Kindergarten students to network with one another.
We have been taking our children since they first started enrolling elementary school in 2004. Overall the education has been great. Much improvement has been made in how young students and their parents are treated, still some room to grow. Finally this year folders are sent home daily so we know what is going on!!(up to the third or fourth grade) Many policies for young grades represent a high school mentality in the administration. That is my biggest frustration. No school nurse or custodian is a drawback as well. No homework is fantastic!!
This school has received a US Department of Education Blue Ribbon Award of Excellence for their superior academic achievements. They deserve to receive an award for their wonderful, caring school. As a parent, I feel they go the one step further in educating my children!
We are parents of two children who attend Presidio Junior High School. They have developed into motivated students who have become complete learners with the CORE Knowledge curriculum. Our oldest will start the Presidio High School next year and his expectations are already to the point where the sky is the limit! Thank you teachers and staff of Presidio. We are very grateful parents.
Presidio School provides a quality education from Kindergarten through 12th grade in an atmosphere of safety highlighted by a quality academic curriculum at all levels. Based on CORE Knowledge, the self paced, rigorous academics allows each child to succeed at their own rate. This is a highly successful Charter School!
My child is enrolled into Presidio's new junior high school, and it has been a disappointment. My child is smart, and she is usually on the honor roll, but she needs lots of encouragement and structure in order to stay focused. Presidio might be a better school for students who are self-motivated.
Presidio is all about the respect both of teachers and other facility and the students..they talk to the kids. They teach the kids to be independent while giving them a good education. Presidio expects the students to work at their own pace to achieve their goals. I've also been impressed with how the staff have communicated my childs progress with me. I can't say enough good things about the staff and the school.
