I have had a bad experience with the front office a couple of times. The ladies are not friendly and does not greet people to ask if they need help. They are very rude. The secretaries are the first people you come into contact with and they should set a better first impression.
The parking is terrible. After school pick up is ridiculous, very unorganized and they take the kids in the office after about 10 minutes and you then have to sign your child out.
Worst school. My kid just transfer to this school now his learning 2 grade stuff in 4th? This school holds your kids back for the other kids that don't care. I have went to the school after my girl wast touched by a boy in girls bathroom, then same kid told her after he will kill her, again student is back in school messing with my daughter so now I pulled her. So she can learn without me boys gropping her in bathrooms or told she will die.
Very terrible school after 4 years with my kids going there I seen its all about school funding and not for teaching kids. My 3rd greater has a teacher that lets kid roam the class when ever they want. Homework is a joke. And of course ever thing is now computers so why send my kids to school for a computer to teach them. The teacher has a page askin for donations for a standing desk. But it's a joke to because he lies on that page to. Claims the kids every day greets in Russian but when I asked my son they never have. writing have gotten worst since 2nd but because he doesn't need to write one thing in class. Math is only reviewing 2 grade math my 2nd grader from a other school gets the same math problems. The drop off and pick up is even worst school staff lets kids run across the street. Cars backed up people parking at no parking and getting out to get kids. People making u-turns thinking they have the right away with jaywalkers and their kids almost getting hit 3 people have been hit a killed in front of the school in last 3 months all the school told me is do you think it's the schools responsibility to teach your kids the laws of the road or the school. My answer BOTH if it's in front of the school.
None my student has a reading log that doesn't need to be turn in. But when asking the teacher his on track. Teacher teaches on a computer, just like if you have your kid do a online school but no need to have him go to a school that don't care for the kid but for the money
This past year was my daughter's first year at Maple and she had a great year! Her teacher did an excellent job of teaching her and preparing her for testing. She made lots of great friends, and she and I both noticed that the students here are more respectful (at her old school - still in high desert - many of the students swore a LOT, and blatantly in front of adults). My daughter has commented on how caring the staff is, from the ladies in the front office, to Cecile, one of the lunch proctors (the kids love her!).
