There are some really great staff members from student supervisors to teachers and the administrative assistant and then there are very mediocre staff members including the principal. The principal never seemed to know what was going on in her own school and when asked questions looked to other staff for simple answers, like when an activity was taking place. I realize not every parent speaks english but conducting everything in Spanish seems to be counter productive and time consuming. Since the students are taught in English, should we not expect parents to learn also? I am of Hispanic descent and I decided not to continue in PTC after I realized there were Spanish speaking cliques among the parents. Mr. Vallarde, the librarian, is awesome but may be a bit stuck in old ways. As with anything, the education your child receives has a lot to do with how much work you, as a parent, are willing to put in. My child was reading and performing simple math by the end of kindergarten. Not every child was so skilled though. Even with a skill level above average, my child will not be returning.
I currently have a daugter in this school, at the time she is being transfered, poor quality!!!!! the teacher she has is horrible to her, singles her out in front of other students, and embarrasess her instead of helping her out with her issues. Yes, she is not an A+ student, but arent 70% of the kids like that too??? They need to help their students more, not single them out, that only make matters worse. My daughter didn't want to go to school anymore, isn't that horrible. I can't wait for her to love school again like she used too.
