Homework is often differentiated to meet the needs of my kids! Teachers are always willing to help. I love the tutoring program. The tutors share ideas on things that we can do at home. PHES offered a summer reading program in the school's garden. It was awesome!
There is a daily wellness time each morning. Each class starts with team building and emphasis on the 3Bs. These are be respectful, be responsible and be a problem solver. The school focuses on a different character trait each month.
We love how involved kids are and how welcoming the students are. Our child can't wait to be a student ambassador. PHE has so many activities for kids! Staff bends over backwards to support students. Great support system. We love their special days for kids (Fun Run, STEAM Day, Arts Day, Health Jam, Dads and Digits, Literacy Day, etc.).
Not only did my son end up with a concussion at the bus stop after being pulled off the special ed bus and me telling the transportation personnel about the problem child, but I was not allowed to even have a meeting with the bully's parents at the school. The principal was unable to communicate with me and the assistant principal continued to protect the bully student. My son could have died on their watch at the school as it took over 4 hours to finally hear from the school about his odd behavior. I would not send my dog to this school. Choice into a better school especially if you have a special needs child or a child that has issues with other kids bullying them.
Despite having straight As at this school, he ranked low on his social studies testing and is currently struggling in his new school year. He rarely had homework and is behind in most of his school subjects.
