I usually don't post reviews, but felt compelled after reading the recent bad review(s). Our child has been in this school for 3+ years. This is an excellent school! Principal Hamasaki does a very very good job of running it. Her presence is always felt. After school music recitals, haloween parade, every single event; she's always there. Did I mention that she's extremely approachable? Academically, my child is well challenged (doing advanced level math) and I have never ever felt that the school/teachers was lacking in anyway. I consider myself lucky to have access to this school.
This school thinks they can teach your children inappropriate, vulgar material. They don't work with parents. It's their way or they make your life, and your children's lives miserable. They are allowed to make false reports as a form of revenge. There's a lot of bullying at the school. It doesn't do any good to for kids complain to teachers, or staff members. They just ignore it. If you're the type of parent that doesn't care what they teach, or don't teach your children, or if you're the type of parent who can't be bothered to monitor your children's education and are happy keeping your head in the sand, then this school is for you!!
I want to thank all the students that go to school and TRY to learn the best they can, under unfortunate circumstances. Hopefully these students try to learn things at home, and hopefully parents take the time to teach. It's the only way children will succeed if they attend this school.
Teachers seem to do what is easiest for you. One fifth grade teacher decided it was easier to exempt homework assignments instead of taking the extra time to actually TEACH the assignments. Horrible teacher!!!
This school gives WAY TOO MUCH HOMEWORK!! I wonder what they do in school all day when they are required to do so much homework. The unfortunate part is, if kids need help with homework, they don't seem to get it. Nobody works past their 3:35 contract time. The days of teachers going above and beyond to help kids is long gone.
