We had the same thing happen with our child at Disney as below and the new Principle did the same thing, she favored the bully. There is a reason why she was removed from Jefferson and it aint good. As far as Disney, it is a depressing title 1 school. THE TEACHER HERSELF CLAIMS HER SPANISH IS NOT AS GOOD AS her assistant teacher. I told her I didn't want my child to play with the bully and she let the bully keep on hassling her. She is not present at play time when bullying happens. Kids talking in class while the teacher is teaching a lesson and the teacher says NOTHING. After 3 months I was finally told that my daughter JUST started repeating things in Spanish, teacher dIdnt communicate this to me AT ALL until then. She really didn't seem prepared to help the parents help their children to learn Spanish. Yes, after 3 month at Disney, boy did our kid fall behind. Beware All, of this school/immersion course. We are now taking the steps to repair from all the things this school did not teach. Our new teacher asks "what did they teacher her there?!" There are many other people who are on an exodus out of this school. If you're interested in immersion go to Franklin.
teacher and stuff good. I am not happy with the new pincipal at the school. my kid was suffering from bulling and didn't unkownledge the situation. She only thinking about herself. Her work is selling herself saying she is what the school needs for her education in busness, when she is incapable to make any decisions, talk down to other parents and helpless in all circumstances , very unconfortable, so much that i have the need to chnage my kid to another school so i can find a principal for caring and competitive, for my security and my child education. as all parents we look for the best..
Disney is on the map to achieve more than just recognition but a standard for all the rest! Go Disney!
Disney is a dream come true for our first school for our daughter she just started kindergarten and she loves it! The teacher and the staff care are amazing,and so are the fellow Disney parents! THANK YOU ALL!!!!!!!!!
The office staff greets you with smiles and a helpful attitude consistently. The teachers are cooperative, kind, and motivated. It is one of the smallest schools, but that is what gives it that small community charm.
My daughter loved all her teachers at this school so far. The new principal is doing a great job and getting to know all the families. There is a sense unity and dedication amongst the parents who do their share of volunteering. My kid comes home singing and brags about her music teacher here as well.
Disney Elementary School has such great feeling of family. Every child is well known by the staff, each teacher and staff member really takes the time to get to know them. You can call in to the office, or walk in, and they will know which student you are there for. The feeling of a family school community is awesome! They have a really wonderful group of teachers. They are fun and outgoing, and really strive to make learning fun and interesting for the students. The school has classroom studies, outdoor studies, physical activities to keep the children moving and beautiful school gardens on the main playground and in the kindergarten playground as well. There are after school programs that are run by outgoing, fun staff that are always creating new activities for the students. Overall, there is so much that is offered by this school to it's family of students and parents.
Great neighborhood school with a wonderful community spirit. The diverse student population and easy access to teachers and administrators make Disney a stand out among other schools. Everyone seems to get along and have one common goal...the best education for the students!!!
This is great little school. The Staff is wonderful and the teachers are all pros. Even with budget cuts the school API keeps going up and it was recognized as a California Distinguished School. Love that third flag!
My daughter is in this school from Kindergarten now she's in 1 st grade.She enjoys in this school,I really liked this school so far.She had a really good teacher in Kindergarten and now her 1st grade teacher is an Angel..I kike the way they teach and also in decipline...they are not much into sports but they are good in music..my daughter has learned a lot in this school and I'm very greatful for that..lets see how this continues..so far so good..I would recommend this school any parent.
We were blessed enough to have recieved a new leadership (administration) team in 2007. They have brought our school to places we had only dreamed of going. They are incredibly supportive of our kids and of us as parents. Our test scores have sky-rocketed. Our kids are excited to go to school every day. The culture of Disney has changed completely. I count my blessing every day that my kids are lucky enough to go to Disney.
The teachers are the best supports and educators of our children... The PTA is so awesome!!
this school is great and the teachers are very nice ( especially Mrs Aron ) will always have a especial place in our lifes for her. she took the time to help our daugther and we such good communication with her.
I pulled my son from this school this school year. He is now thriving in an alternative setting. Reflecting on his negative experience at Disney, I can honestly opinionate and say the staff was insensitive to the fact he was a new student struggling to make friends and be accepted and they failed to support him in any way. The Principal exhibited a bit of concern for him, but when it came down to it, she just wanted to punish him and disregard the bullies behaviors. His teacher complained that he couldn't find the appropriate textbook in his desk and criticized him in front of other students. He was scarred by this. There was a gentleman by the name of Mr. Bugby who showed much consideration towards him. But on the whole, I think they missed the big picture with him. He was struggling because he needed consolement and support.
I was not happy with this school. My son only went there for 5th grade but had a terrible time getting along with other students. It took until the last month and a 1/2 before the Principal finally tried to help my son. I was also not impressed with his teacher either. Overall, not a good experience.
I am afraid that my views about walt disney elementary are not good.The principal is great but the rest of the school needs a lot of work. Open your eyes busd!
This school is recovering from a previous principal that was not parent-friendly at all. The new one is so much better! I'm looking forward to great things as my student goes through!
Our school is dedicated to teaching the children to achieve their best. It is a Title I school with one of the highest API scores in our district, compared to regular schools. We believe ALL children can learn and achieve and succeed, regardless of their background. The teachers are caring, knowledgeable and dedicated to improving their own skills, in order to teach these wonderful children.
