My 2nd child just finished 4th grade at Frazier Park school. I was an active parent, attending meetings and being involved in PTSO and other areas of the school. I'm happy with most of the teachers we had over the past 7 years. Budget cuts hit hard in this little district, teachers are doing their best. More parents need to be active, that's what makes the difference. Sad to see our principal go, she was amazing! Biggest problem with the district I would say is the superintendent, but the new school board is pushing for positive changes!
When I hear an read the review down here about: "Parents are reluctant to get involved because of the response they get from teachers at the school." I said , it can't be that bad and omg if I was wrong!!! while is true ,most of the stuff and teachers are good and do a good job,there is some teachers that are there for just a check, I mean really a bad attitude,while other teachers are more that happy to get some voluntary work from parent this one even accept appointments to do so and at the end just said "ohh there is nothing you can help with" and not to mention the rude attitude,. and how about try to get an appointment to discuss you child performance or question about your kids school program ?? the answer from the teacher is : I'm too busy, Busy? are kidding me? what is more important than your child education? You know who I'm taking about P H We are patient parents and tolerant but this is beyond, Is not like want to make appointments for any reason, and good luck trying to get the principal..an other mission impossible. Sadly this is only one issue..
School can't accommodate issues learning which is a federal law, teacher to student ratio is 30+, aids nonexistent, teachers try to work their best under this situation. Standards for this region is based much lower then going off the hill south. Yes there are always teachers there for just for the paycheck. School does not have comp ed sufficient for kids to compete in the real world. In some classrooms nonexistent.
Academic programs are of average quality. There are no foreign language or tutoring offered. There are no sports, music, art or any other extracurricular activities offered. Parents are reluctant to get involved because of the response they get from teachers at the school. While many of the teachers do their best given the circumstances, a significant few are obviously only teaching for a paycheck. I would absolutely not recommend this school. I encourage parents to seek alternative educational avenues such as home-schooling or charter schools.
