All core teachers leaving. Need to work on retention of experienced teachers.
Academically excellent. Very safe and controlled environment - no tolerance for cussing, bullying, smoking, etc. A lot is expected of the students and sometimes the workload and rules can be burdensome. Good variety in curriculum - Spanish, keyboarding, music, P.E., etc. Overall very good but not the best fit for a sensitive child.
Great kids and teachers! Sports program is very positive. Behavior expectations are high. Facilities need a/c instead of coolers.
Teachers would be great with the right leadership, they seem to really care about the students.
Some of the female teachers have little experience with appropriate discipline. They began to get negative attitudes and the children did not respond well. Overall the grading is too lenient and it is difficult to measure achievment.
My child was painfully bored and never challenged. The teacher had never taught before and constantly ran out of things to do with the class so they would read. My son read a lot. He can read at home. We withdrew him at the end of 2003. He loves his new school and he has learned so much. We are so glad we were brave enough to pull him out of the depths of mediocrity.
This school is the best thing that ever happened to my daughter. The class rooms are small and each child is given very individual attention. Holly Lehman is a great asset to this school as Principal for the 2004 school year!
The School was wonderful the first year it started 2003, the quality of the teachers and education went down when Sherri Stewart decided to expand, she lost her sight of the children and the quality of education. She hires brand new teachers, which is not a bad thing, but does nothing to keep them, so she hires new every year. The continuity is not there. You must purchase all your childs own science and art supplies. No PE equipment, no computers.
