Globe Charter School5

I really appreciate their 6th grade teacher Mr. Evens. This school was recommended to me by a parent who works with district 11 and she was pleased with the 6th grade education program. My daughter went to this school fighting me all the way. Not wanting to do her best on homework or even try half of the time. But Mr. Evens held her accountable with us to get her on track. By the end of the year, she was coming to me with questions like, "Mom, I don't understand this problem. The calculator said this answer, but I'm getting this one, can you please show me what I'm doing wrong?" The proof is in the pudding. Not to mention the staff and the principle did the best they could to work with us. Parents are very welcome in this school at anytime!
Globe Charter, though once a good school, is the worse school tow hich my kids have ever gone. The principal is horrible, and the teaching isn't much better. There are a few good teachers, but VERY few. My kids won't be going back. Areas for improvement are to stop mass disciplining kids, hire some better teachers and get rid of the current leadership.
The staff is very dedicated. They are willing to spend time before school, at lunch time and they have an after school home work club three days a week. The maximum class size is fixed at 17 so the staff are much better able to provide individual attention to the students. Both of my girls have thrived at the school.
Globe supports EVERY student! We have amazing, caring, and interested staff and teachers.Globe respects and encourages every child to excell and embrace their right to be an individual. With languages such as german and sign being taught from kindergarten up, small classes that allow for one on one teaching, and commitment to school and community, Globe Charter School is the VERY BEST for kids, for parents, for EVERYONE!!
This school is fantastic! It teaches the children about respecting diverse cultures and our planet. The kids learn a second language every day! And the teachers are so dedicated. I'm so glad I found this school!
