Sixth Avenue Elementary School1

The staff seem very friendly,but when it comes to education they suck! My child has been stagnated attending that school because half of the students in her class don't know the sounds of the alphabets and can not read! Her reading and math scores were high before attending Sixth Avenue and now she's below. My children aren't learning what they need to learn and aren't where they should be academically. They came from a school that really made education a priority and held parents accountable for the success of the chidren. The children in class/school are out of control and that makes teaching very difficult too! I believe these teachers need to be trained AGAIN as well as how to teach BETTER because they need help helping our children!!!
Our daughter is in the BD program at this school and Mrs Thomas and Mrs Parker have been excellent with her. You walk into the school and everyone is friendly. The halls are covered with classroom projects to show what the children have been doing. They encourage parent participation with classes on nutrition, adult ed to learn English and classes to help parents understand what their children are doing for homework.
2010 - First time at this school. Very disatisfied with concern for student progress and well being. Extremely disorganized structure from classroom to lunchroom. Absolutely no home work is given. I would not choose to send my children here - now searching for alternatives.
