As a former teacher, this school is a joke. The principal and her assistant cannot handle parent complaints or concerns and their complaints are taken out on the teachers. As a teacher, supplies and curriculum weren't even given to us on time, nor were we trained on any of it until months after the school year was started. I don't blame parents for being unhappy at this school. I felt we teachers had to handle all the discipline issues ourselves, because the administration had no ability. Some of the kids were sent to the office for punching, kicking, spitting and cursing, and the principal would just send them back to class to disrupt learning. I did my best to teach those kids the best way I knew how. Not one teacher at that school wants to come back because of the principal and Mosaica. Do not send your student here.
Theprincipal is not receptive to comments and will say she will do something and not follow through. Supervison is a problem. I have driven by and seen the kids coming down the side of the hill by the playground. It is a poor charter school with regards to testing scores and many kids regressing.
I took my child out of his last school and into STAR because it sounded great. I regretted this decision for the rest of the school year. My child went from standardized test scores in the 90% for most subjects to 5 and 10% for all the subjects. The children were not supervised well and he ended up getting a very poor attitude about school because he was either bored or getting his things stolen. I brought up my concerns with the teacher and with the staff, and though we did come up with ideas to fix the issues there was no followthrough. I feel as if he wasted a full school year and is now having to relearn information (his teacher at STAR taught him to count on his fingers) and trying to catchup for what he was not taught in 2nd grade. I would not recommend this school
This school doesnt provide the computer and classes and services it says it will provide.
