i am a former student of downer and as a student i should know the school and everything better than any parent almost daily there was a fight and some of the teachers are really lazy and don't teach you hardly anything the principal didn't do anything about discipline i'm glad that they are making a new school but it won't be ready until 2009
This school needs alot of improvement, my kids are constantly coming home telling me about all the fights, almost daily. They have an afterschool [program]. which is free. and tutoring after school to improve the scores.
Downer is a really good school even though downer is always left out they are really doing a fantastic job for the students and I should know. Reson is that I'm a parent and I have 4 kids going in the same school. What can I say downer is number one. Im happy they are make a new school. Downer really deserves it kids really try to work hard. The only thing they need for the school is better food. I would like to cook better food for that school. They really need good food. The food is not to health.
Downer is a very good school, since my children have been going there their grades have came up very well one of my sons is now in gifted and talented classes in junior high and my other son learned to read better.
