i think Don Riggio is an amazing school, however, the school district representatives are where my problems begin. Bonnie, the Secretary of the Superintendent is absolutley rude and condesending. I have never been treated or spoken to with such hostility by someone who says they put children first!
Both my Girls are flourishing at this School, in large part to the Teachers, Staff, and Parents. The dedication far exceeds my expectations. My oldest daughters Teacher, knows her strengths and weaknesses and knows how to engage her. She is a tough Teacher who expects the 'BEST' from and for her students, and encourages them. my youngest daughter is also in a class where her Teacher Loves every one of her students and expects their strengths to shine, and they do! The Staff knows every student by name, and addresses them with a hello (followed by their name). It may not seem big, but to these parents and students, it really means the world! The parents are very like minded at this School, we all have a common goal, and that is to build up every single child and Family at this school. If ever a tragedy strikes we come together to help support both monetarily; aswell as emotionally. the parents are eager to help in the class-rooms, and support the school as a whole. We have a strong, and dedicated PTSA. headed by the 'BEST' group of Parents and Teachers!
Don Riggio School staff is an amazing and dedicated group. They have worked so hard that our scores increased by 30 points!!!! Incredible!! We have a very active PTSA that works hard to support the staff and students. I like the family atmosphere at the school and I agree with the other parent who noted that we strongly support families in need.
