Nestle Avenue Charter School 2

I put my daughter in T-K here but I regret it. Her teacher repeatedly refused to allow the kids to go to the bathroom when it wasn't recess, so there were more than a couple of unfortunate incidents that could have been avoided. These are 5 year olds, people. Have a heart. Then, due to a clerical error, my name was not on the list of parent volunteers for a classroom party, and the petty bureaucrats in the office wouldn't let me attend. I watched other parents go into the party, they even vouched for me, but the list issue kept me barred at the door, unable to celebrate the end of the school year with my kid, who was expecting me to be there. When I mentioned my concerns to the principal she was condescending,rude and dismissive. This has been a really bad experience.

This school is so special. The teachers and principal are dedicated and supportive. The students enjoy coming to school every day because they are excited to learn! The teachers work hard to create engaging lessons that are fun and rigorous.

Nestle is a great school. I have 2 kids that have culminated and are doing great in their current schools. The principal is dedicated to the safety and overall well being of our students. She cares for them as if they were her own children. The teachers are hard working and make learning fun. The one issue here is the lack of parent involvement. We have a great PTA, but it is only run by a small group. PTA helps raise money for field trips, school and student needs. They have lots of fun activities, movie nights, after school activities, holiday shop, and more. My suggestion to all parents: Get involved in your child's school! Children feel proud when they see their parent volunteer.

All teachers, because, the have to the best they can with few resources and only mediocre help from administration.

It appears that the teachers are doing a good enough job with the kids. School administration needs a complete overhaul, however.

I have no problem with the amount of work received by my child. She can accomplish the work along with the rest of the class. it does seem adequate, but, bordering on the not enough side..

Some may, I would suppose, it does show in the class where my child is.

How can this place develop respect, when the front office, the place that is the face and main interaction point with the community, does not practice it.

Develops empathy: Disagree

These are traits that are absent in the daily habits of the people that work here, there is no way that they can be transmitted to others if there is no practice in these matters.

Develops honesty: Disagree

How can any learning institution teach honesty, integrity and fairness if the school and the people that work there lack these attributes.
