This is an amazing school even though this year at the fairgrounds has been challenging. They have been very positive. I pulled my kids (1st grade and 5th grade out of Bellevue Elementary where they yell at the kids and are extremely lacking) to go to this school. I love the teachers and staff! They are friendly and take care of my concerns and are always welcoming to me. They do not give out too much homework. I love that they go on many field trips and have a "hands on" approach to learning. I have met so many other wonderful parents who care about their children's education and how they treat other kids (unlike Bellevue elementary). It reflects in the way the children act. This school has over come many challenges this year and I love the family feeling and positive discipline techniques. My only wish for this school is to serve "hot lunch" and for them to have a bus system in place. But those are sacrifices that have been worth it because this school is fantastic!
The positive dicipline has been truly amazing for our family. We are so pleased with our experience with this school and the community. Wouldn't want to be any where else. Thank you to all the amazing teachers who really out in their all.
Mary Jo Hamilton, the School's Office Manager is also the resident miracle worker, good friend, problem solver, and people connector. She is a gem and we are so lucky to have her at Santa Rosa Charter School.
I'm also grateful for the wonderful parents who helped build the school, and continue to do it as it encounters each year and the challenges and opportunities those bring. For those parents who work as board members, thank you too. Your leadership is inspiring.
