The teachers are disconnected from the students and parents.
This school teaches common core and is overloaded and understaffed, leading to my children coming home crying with loads of homework.
The teachers seem as though they are never there, it's always a different substitute teaching the lessons.
If your child has a slight cough you are called and expected to pick up your child right away. However, when a child in a classroom has visible markings and lesions such as Hand Foot and Mouth Disease nothing is done.
Worst of all, the principle is non confrontational and it shows when it comes to putting an stop to bullying.
Just so everyone is on the same page, I have more than one child that attends this school, so it is multiple classrooms.
Children who are advanced learners are very well served in this school. It is amazing to see how involved the parent community is at Adams. I HIGHLY recommend this school. Love the principal and how well the teachers work together. My child attended PreK - 6th (2014)
The preschool program is wonderful,my son who has a speech disorder and is very hard to understand and is also very shy has done amazing,His speech has improved greatly and the teachers really seem to love and care about him.I was very concerned about him being away from me for 2.5 hrs a day with his lack of speech but they have gone out of their way to make sure we are both happy.
This school was ok, if your child is adhd/add in anyway the teachers dont seem to take the time with your child, they automatically assume your child is a bad kid and aren't very patient at all. Maybe if they had special classes for kids who need a little more one on one time things would have been better but unfortunatly they don't.
Beware of this school if your child is out of the ordinary in any way. It's probably perfectly fine for most kids, but the support services and accomodations are lacking even for typical children who need extra help. We moved our child after 2nd grade and are so happy that we made that choice.
I have been so pleased with our experience with Betty Adams Early Childcare Center. Our son started at 3.5 years-old and he adores attending. Ms. LaDonna and Ms. Susanne are remarkable with children and at accommodating different kids with different needs. It is a true learning program instead of a glorified day-care which was really important to us. Our son is learning true pre-kindergarten lessons and getting the tools for reading, sound maps, writing, math, and socialization with his peers as well as his teachers.
