You have to be persistent and determined to keep up with the curriculum, but that isn't necessarily a bad thing. Hopefully there is a stay at home parent to help them with the work they bring home (if you're lucky enough to have that kind of support).
The principal (whos ups and downs in moods) makes it look like they develop integrity and fairness on the face of things, but in the end it feels shallow and fake. The teachers themselves on the other hand, as are in most cases, the ones who deserve the real credit. Here's to hoping you get a good one.
At first I thought there was too much busy work given; but then after spring break any of the written work given in the 2nd grade class was now optional and they were supposed to get online and play educational games for 20 minutes a day. I have absolutely no idea what this was supposed to do for children. I saw that my son's writing grade went down as a result.
We have been very disappointed in Rossmoor. We live in district and had high expectations for this school, but quickly found out that the emphasis is on test scores and being "the best," instead of putting students first. There is an extreme lack of communication and there is no type of "partnership" between the parents and the staff. I spent many hours volunteering in my children's classrooms and was involved in the PTA and was shocked at how some of the teachers spoke to the students and how the parents were treated. Other than the 2nd grade teachers who are absolutely amazing, it is difficult to find many positive things to say about Rossmoor. We will not settle for this type of environment for our children and will not return.
Rossmoor is an excellent school. My son enjoyed his time there, from 2nd grade to 5th. School staff are very committed to work hard with all students. We don't live in Los Alamitos but we always fell at home at Rossmoor. The only thing that I regret is with the District that first, sent letters to choose middle school , and later on, they don't honor the middle school chosen.
We are a new kinder family and we LOVE Rossmoor! Our son's teacher is tech savvy, smart and creative. I know my child is getting the best experience possible- a real 21st century education. Rossmoor has a strong culture of teacher collaboration, the most rigorous and authentic academic programs and a beautiful, safe campus. Couldn't be happier.....
Rossmoor Elementary... Wouldn't put my child there again... We pulled them out, few great teachers but really lacking a good principal. Sad because the potential is there but with a leader that can't lead, where can you go? There is too much gossip and game playing with the principal. Sorry, don't want my child back there...
