I am grateful for the Kindergarten teacher Ms. Machon. This was her first year teaching K at this school, however, she has done an incredible job with the children. My son was having some issues and was recently diagnosed with ADHD, but throughout the year Ms. Machon remained positive and patient with my son. Even though he was going through some rough times, he was able to keep up with the rest of the children and grow both academically and socially due to her patience, perseverance and the love of the children that she constantly exhibited. My son actually sees her not only as a teacher but as a superstar. Last year he was getting to the point of dreading going to school, however, over the recent Spring break he couldn't wait to go back to school, because he missed Ms. Machon. Ms. Machon is also a superhero in my eyes and I hope that the school fully appreciates her talents and her dedication both to the school and the children. A heartfelt "THANK YOu" to Ms. Machon, from a very grateful parent.
The teachers in this school lack professionalism and there text books are also outdated. They are also very dirty and old with tons of markings and drawings in there. My child came home to tell me that the teacher had to keep making corrections to the book because of outdated facts. Another reason is that the school is very small and has no green grass. When the children play on this ground, when they fall they can be hurt. On a website, it stated that the student teacher ration was 18:1, but in my child's class there are 31 students to 1 teacher. The classrooms are also very small so it can be dangerous for the students in an emergency to get out the door. There is 1 building for 9 classes which have about 30 students each. In a disaster everyone would panic and someone could get trampled or seriously injured. The school also says that the math text books are 1 grade level up but many other schools text books are not 1 grade level above but are still harder then the text book my child has right now. Many students also complained about that they were not learning because everything was like last year. They also frequently change the principle so many things change every year. If you are considering to send your child to this school you should rethink about it again.
I transferred my daughter from this school year despite the fact that it had already started because of the lack of professionalism that the principal demonstrated. We also had to deal with bullies and disrespect amongst the students which was never addressed by the school administration.
