Love love love this school great teachers and principal need to work on more leadership could be a little cleaner but overall the teachers listen to your concern great communication welcoming school need a new lunchroom staff. Lunchroom staff be little are kids. need to work on people still.
My child currently goes to this school and we hate it, I am looking for a different school to send him to next year. The class' are overcrowded ( 1:22 ratio in Kinder ) We feel that his teacher is trying but simply outnumbered. Incidents happen at the school and we find out a week later.
Poor discipline. Overcrowded. And the principal would rather blame the parents and never follows through with any 'resolutions' she proposes...nor does she listen to the parents. Teachers would rather spend their time yelling at the students instead of teaching them.
We have sent now all 4 of our sons to Queen Palmer and it has been the best decision we've made about schools. My oldest just graduated 5th grade and struggled a lot this past year. His teacher spent tons of one on one time with hiim, extra help after school and went above and beyond to get him where he needed to be. Not only did his grades and scores improve, but so did his self esteem and overall attitude toward school! The staff is excellent, and very willing to help with anything. The field trips were awesome and all the programs were just great. Great feel with this school, it's very welcoming and friendly and our favorite part is the low teacher to student ratio. It's a smaller school and gives more individualized attention than most. I would definately recommend.
