I just received an email to leave a review for teacher appreciation week... So: I must say that this year has been very good. Mrs. Guthrie is our 1st grade teacher this year and my child just loves her. Mrs. Guthrie is very patient and encouraging. The school is even going on a field trip to the Zoo this month. Also, the after school care program has been awesome. They seem to be much more organized than last year. Mr Armani, Mr Nelson and Ms Cassandra have all been great leaders for the kids. Good things like these far outweigh the not-so-perfect about the school.
The younger Hispanic lady in the office who answers phones and always has a welcoming smile on her face and has always been extremely nice and helpful and the taller Caucasian women in the office who does attendance??? Both of these women seem to be the ONLY ones in the office that treat others as they would like to be treated...KUDOS to you both...but good people like you don't last in places like Reynolds...
I'm with the others who have given this school one star....TERRIBLE....once upon a time this was a GREAT school- DO the RESEARCH and I guarantee you will not be pleased with the results- I'm having a hard time believing the people who have rated this school anything over one star are actual PARENTS....if your children have attended this school you know this school is a 1 star school....truthful parent
This school has been plagued with many problems, some of which include lack of parent participation in their child's education, and communication difficulties. However, this school has undergone many changes and improvements- including Dr. Gina Zyburt. Dr. Zyburt has dedicated herself to motivating staff and students to improve their scores, and her record shows that our school has improved consistently in her two and a half years here. Reynolds has been chosen to receive iPads for the student due to their use of technology. Also offered, is a transitional kindergarten for children whose birthdays call a month or two short of this years kinder cut off, as well as a Spanish immersion kinder class. It is a dual language program exclusively at Reynolds. There are a lot of fundraisers and free events offered throughout the year to try and encourage a sense of community. Give us a chance and you will see our changes!!
If you have a choice...DO NOT send your child here. Although my child's Kindergarten teacher is excellent, she struggles with still teaching bilingual children their alphabet and sounds 7 months into the school year...leaving my child (who can already read) bored. The school is overcrowded & dropping/picking up your child from school is a MAJOR PAIN!!! Waiting in line for at least 20 minutes to get to the front! Not once did the kindergarteners take even a simple field trip to the fire dept, or anywhere else. They constantly have fund raisers, which only ever pay for 5th graders activities. Obviously this school is lacking in funds from the district to supply a memorable experience for the majority of children/parents.
My son started at this school this year as a second grader and I have to say I LOVE this school. I had so many problems with his last school and Reynolds just outshines any other school I looked at by far. The staff is caring and always willing to help, his teacher is excellent and overall it is a good strong school. I am very happy I enrolled my son here
We are so glad our kids are out of there. We saw how those Teachers turned on the brave PTO Group that accidently discovered the Principal had been stealing from the kids, the school and the District. at 2 different schools. Even after she went to jail some tried to raise funds for her by selling "Restitution Bread" to teachers & parents. The Principal also allowed a family member to cater lunches there to raise money in her support. They are a vindictive group with a mob mentality. There are a few good Teachers there but not many. Very few ever participated in fundraisers, helped with school beautification projects or showed up for the end of year celebrations. Look at scores and run. It is known as an old school where Teachers go to pad a few more years to their retirement. Just so you know a teacher and the Principal monitor the site daily and write the positive reveiws to counter the truth. Weak Leader & weaker Team!
