If you want to see how your children are treated just go during recess or after school. No love, only screaming. The saddest part about this school is how the loving, nurturing teachers are over powered by the rest of the terrible staff. I took my children out once they hit grade school after watching how they are treated at recess and after school. The Kindergarten and Preschool programs are phenomenal. It seems like once they get into grade 1 they are not paid enough to care. Mrs. Woods and the Nurse are two of the most loving people I have met while my children have attended school. On the other hand I have never been treated so terribly by an office staff in my life. I wish they could be held accountable. I can't even begin to explain how they talk down to my husband and me, and treat us like we are stray dogs.
I also have a ten year old son attending DelMar Elementary,and i also find it quite odd for these children not to be able to have some special holiday parties as other schools do.A nd also the teachers are deinetly not the same.my son is a class clown and for that reason his teacher has had it with him.But does this mean she has the authority to belittle and embarrass our children infront of the whole class?
This school is great. I have had 3 children prior to my youngest child now attending. They were there from 1st-6th grade with no problems. BUT, now the new principle is not allowing what children got to experience when they were attending this school. My 2sons and daughter are noe 23, 22, and 21. My daughter attending is 7 going to this school. They do not allow our children to have fun there. By all means this is a place of learning, but they are all very hard working children who deserve a little play day once every year ATLEAST! When my children were there they had a Goofey day, and a party for valentines day, halloween, & christmas secret santas to whoever wanted to participate in the class. Who wouldnt let a child experience this! I understand maybe junior high. I am changing schools this one has changed too much.
My son started Kindergarten at Del Mar this year.Mrs. Hood, Mrs. Helling and Mrs. McCoy are a great team,and work very well together. I have been fortunate enough to have been able to volunteer time in his class several times,and would enjoy doing so again. Sincerely, Cassandra LeCompte
