Handles bullying effectively: Strongly agree


- a
No tolerance!! They have special assemblies, bully awareness month and talk openly with their students about it.

Supports LD students: Neutral


- a
From what I see the school had numerous special needs classes along with other forms, after school tutoring and homework club.


Effective school leaders: Strongly agree


- a
The principal is outstanding!! Mrs. Shaw is the true meaning of a principal. She is constantly outside greeting us in the morning's, overseeing the students safety, rain or hot sun (in heels) monitoring the crosswalks, communicating via phone upcoming activities or changes in schedule, etc. Your concerns are important and resolved immediately.

Develops character: Strongly agree


- a
They get their students involved!! Every month a particular character trait is taljed about. Rewards are given constantly, student of month, monthly perfect attendance, character trait awards, etc. You see strong bonds, friendships, and great community at this school.

Teacher effectiveness: Strongly agree


- a
Every teacher we had was what I would want every teacher to be. I couldn't have asked for better!! They all took the time to know my child and truly care about his future.


Amount of homework: Strongly agree


- a
Homework is age appropriate and they don't give an abundance!! They care about you and your family and want you to have quality family time instead of hours of homework.

I just regret not starting here in kindergarten

Pros: Diverse students drawn from a diverse neighborhood. Many GATE students, both local community and transfers. Many excellent teachers. These teachers are clustered in k-3. Cons: Some very average and below average teachers as well. Like government workers, in the worst sense. Especially in the upper grades. Some of the teachers are absolutely excellent, most are good, and some are poor. If you are thinking of transferring here b/c its an SAS school, I would discourage it. There is a good chance you will miss the positives the school has to offer. 3 years with an average or poor teacher (which can happen) is probably not worth the disruption.

I had my children at a nearby Charter from Dahlia and it has been the best choice I made. It got to a point where the kids and the system at the charter school reminded me of the song " Another Brick on the Wall" at Dahlia they are now more social and can have fun while learning and have really excelled socially and academically. They are happier and always eager to learn. The teachers and the parents are very welcoming. The teachers and administration are also very supportive and communicate so well with staff, parents and the community.

Amount of homework: Agree


- a
The school provides with the proper amount. At the previous school they where provided with excessive amount that would take any where from 4 to 6 hours that would equal to 16pages a day. The children get enough not to hate or dread school.
