Playground equipment is so limited. There are no field trips. Parent involvement is low. They are always asking for donations, but it is spent only for below average students as far as I can tell.
My son attended Kindergarten in 2004. He had a very positive experience. He was excited to go to class every day. His teacher really built up his self esteem and taught him to be comfortable in front being center stage in front of his peers. I was surprised that with so many kids attending preschool that 1/2 his class had no experience with the alphabet -- it took about 2/3rds of the year to get to reading. Very little parent involvement -- myself and two other parents.
We love this school. the school backs up to a huge park so there is lots of playground room. the principle is very active and involved classrooms and is often seen overseeing the kids at recess. There is an city-sponsered after-school program called Fourth R. This lets us drop our kids off early, if we have to work early, or they can go to Fourth R after school to be picked up when we get off work.
