The teachers at this school have only ever complained about my children, why they haven't done this or that! Why they don't turn in homework! If you have a straight A student that requires no help. This might work for you! For our family, they failed!
I do not like they internet policies, my child and I can never keep up, they have to use schoolology to get to their logins. Cole for assignments and then PowerSchool ... They are expecting the children to act like they are in college! What happen to a book and paper, or a printout!
Definitely NOT! It is all about their TCAP or CCAP scores! The yearly funding for having your child there and in a seat! They made my children want to quit school, not stay in! It should not be a fight to get your child out the door! He should not cry because he doesn't want to go back there. We are talking about, 11, 12 & 13year olds.
They value only their uptight PC rules, they do not care why something happened. Just a that your kid reacted!
My child has been bullied everyday. And they punish harshly, with no regard for the child's background! Putting kids in timeout in a closet in the Deans office is not compassionate or caring!
A great school! Students at Falcon are cared for and given every opportunity to succeed. The teachers do their best...offering extra help and tailoring classes to the kids. Difficult to imagine a better group of teachers.
This is my second year with a child at this school, and we have been very happy with Falcon Creek. I love the overall philosophy of the school--they have really opened my eyes to the concept of caring for the "whole child" rather than just test scores. Teachers encourage kids to be responsible for themselves--keeping track of and turning in assignments--totally preparing them for high school and college. The rigorous AIM program is great for academically advanced kids, and the school has worked with us when even more was needed. When I've initiated contact with teachers or administrators I have always gotten a prompt response and a solution I can live with. The comments I've heard from teachers during conferences show me that the teachers really know and understand my kid. Most importantly, my son is happy here.
This is our first year at this school and I have not been very pleased. The reliance on Power School to find and print or submit assignments is much like taking an on - line college course and it has been confusing for both my child and me. The teachers are too hard on the children and expect too much independence, even to the point where teachers refuse to communicate directly with me because they expect my child to handle it?!?! It honestly feels like more effort is going into hurting my child's success then helping :( The thought of two more years of this is terrifying! !
