I need some advice. my son is 5. he was in an early education center since he was 3. That being said, when he entered kindergarden he was one step ahead. I have never had a problem with his behavior. At home his behavior is well, with anyone else he behaves. He does however, have a lot of energy. BUT, ever since he entered kinder i get nothing but bad reports from school. He is at the point to be suspended. He has been kicked out of class once. My first reaction was to be pist. But there is a gut feeling that there is more than him just misbehaving. Today I had to sit in class to observe, as a condition for my son to re enter class. I want to be reasonable,and give his teacher the benefit of the doubt. I find out that for almost 6 months my son did not have a desk. I went to ikea and bought him a table and chair for him to use. I dont mind at all to do this. But, I just cant stop thinking where has my kid been put all along. I ask him and he says that when ever someone is absent that is the seat he takes. I feel really bad for my kid. I feel like I let him down. I hate this school. There have been other little things that just dont seem right.
I am disgusted by what I have seen at this school. I can not understand why the playground appears the way it does. The balls for the tetherball are an poor excuse for balls. Upon entering the principal's office, everything is prestige, marble-like counters. I wish she cared as much about her students as she does her office furniture. Also, this school is known for withholding students from outer district permits, possibly for the money they will not spend on the students. Disgusted parents.
I am a parent of a student who has gone here for the last two years going on three. I find that the principal and vice principal stay involved in everything. As a parent volunteer, I see a lot from the inside and the out. I see alot that this school does for the students. I encourage the parents to get involved. No school is perfect. It takes the parent and staff to work together. I think Ms Marquez is a wonderful principal and does the best she can with best of what she has.
The teachers here at Worthington Elementary School (try) as much as they can to help their students but their lack of efforts isn't really that good. The students like their teachers but the teachers act like their happy with them but later on they mistreat them.
Im a parent and i am proud of this school. they have the best staff members and employees. the only thing is that the staff members in the office give the employees flyers to go home and the teachers wait until the following week to hand them to the kids, but other than that im satisfied with the work that the principal and staff has done for the kids. since the current principal Mrs. Marquez has been working here this school all the students have been raised properly and they have achieved during their years in this school.
Since the arrival of the new principal 3 years ago the school has gone down hill. There is a lack of support and organization from the principals. Notes come home late with misspellings and wrong information. The classrooms are run down, there a very little outside activities, and discipline seems to be missing.
This school is ok nothing to brag about really. But my daughter's teacher is great. There is not much extracurricular activities, and I think they need more good teachers.
My child attended Worthington Elementary School for all of elementary school. During the 2004-2005 school year there was a new principal and vice principal brought in to run the school. I feel this is when the school left a lot to be desired. Especially in the areas of handling problems with teachers and students. Also the extra curriclar activities were poorly run, organized by students and you were never given ample warning of events - you would get a paper that try outs were the next day, pictures the next day, etc.. Their paperwork to parents was never provided more than a day or two the date of whatever was being mentioned.
The teachers here try very hard to give children the best they can with what little they have. Unfortunately it is very little. This school would be much better if they cleaned up this area.
