My child is in Kindergarten and we are very happy with our teacher, Mrs. Renden. However, I am not happy with the Principal as she doesn't seem to be involved with the school. The last time she posted her own newsletter was back in October! I think she does more with the older grades, but not Kindergarten. Again, we are very happy with Mrs. Renden and feel fortunate to have her as a teacher.
Your child will be fine if they are a good student that does not need any guidance. Children who need to work hard to keep up at the average level are not actively given extra help or support. The Principal does not manage the teachers and wants the parents to do so. The Principal also does not provide the best teachers to children who need it most. There is a clear preference given to the children of parents on PTA and who work at the school the most.
Parent involvement is impressive but this school is not recommended for kids with special needs. They don't have experienced special education teachers.
This is a great school, with lots of parent involvement and high academic and social standards. It broke our hearts to have to move from Oak Creek when we had to move for my husbands' job, as it is hands down the best school we have had the opportunity to attend. From the principal to the teachers to the staff to the PTA, there is a lot of involvement and feedback, and it is obvious that there is a commitment to excel.
The Kindergarten teachers are great! My daughter has learned so much at this school. The teachers sincerely care about the students. They have accelerated programs for the students that are ahead of the average, which I thought was terrific. The students are engaged in a broad range of academic programs. Most parents are involved, which makes a big difference.
