I had two children attend this school last year. The youngest one did well but the large class size seemed too overwhelming to be a good learning environment. Some kids that could not keep up did not receive sufficient attention because there weren't enough resources. Parents really need to be more involved in their children's education now days. Also, we contributed to the class fundraiser and never saw where the funds were spent. My older student did well also but I don't think the teacher challenged the classes writing skills and pushed the importance of proper fundamentals often enough. Writing is an important foundation that should start in elementary school and be continously cultivated throughout adulthood. The demand only gets greater. Burnett's PTA is almost non-existence. Harldy any parent's or teacher's actively participate.
Im very please with the principals job she is an outstanding person.allthough she is nice the staff in the office is deffinetly not im a parent of a few students there & everytime i show up on the office they just ignore me several times ive seen the office full the two ladys in the office do not get up to help they should b remove from the school & get new staff that wants to help with the parents.Another issue i have is when they say after school kids can b on the playground untill 3:00pm & they r calling me at 2:30 to pick up my kids they r suppost to call after 3:00 if the parent doesn't show up i would like that fix as well please
I can't comment on parental involvement in this school, but I can comment on being a father of a kindergarten Teacher. This teacher has an enormous amount of love and devotion to her kids. She carries her dedication to them twenty-four day, constantly trying to improve ways to get her kids off on the right step to the next level of their education. If the teachers in this school have learned anything from her, it must be a great school.
