Pembroke is by far a much better school than my son's actual homeschooling where I feel his kindergarten year was virtually wasted. His first grade special ed teacher and her aides are wonderful and the turn around in my son is amazing. He started at Pembroke barely able to hold a pencil and is now writing 3 page stories. His behavior in school is wonderful as well because of the things they use to deal with his sensory disorder. His principal is wonderful as well and others would do well to model her. My biggest complaint and only complaint is how the board of ed is breaking the law, section 504 of the ADA of 1973 and refuses to allow my son to be in the before and after school program with my upcoming surgery! These people do not care about our children at all! Especially the child of a single mom in chronic pain. It saddens me greatly that they continue to do this and the superintendent does not care because he is retiring?? Perhaps he should retire today and do us a a favor! May Justice prevail! Its vile the way so many schools blatantly break the law where are special needs children are concerned especially when all I here is how wonderful my son is doing!
I am very pleased with Mrs. Thomas as a prinicapal. The PTO does so many great thing for teachers as well as the students.
I love that my children are lucky enough to be at Pembroke School. My childrens' teachers have been wonderful! They are so supportive and responsive to any concerns that I might have in regards to my children. The new principal has inspired me to be more involved in the school. She is strict, which I like, and she's truly trying to improve the school. She has to make some hard decisions and so far, I think she has been great. The PTO is fantastic. They have such a positive attitude. I would like to see more parents involved, but those that are, are truly dedicated to the school and the students.
Not very impressed with the teachers in this school, compared with NY teachers. Report cards don't give much info on child's progress. Not happy with school even with new principle running it. But am glad to see new security measures to enter school with buzzer.
I will now have 3 children walking through the doors at Pembroke School. The teachers do an amazing job with the students and are always there for you with any questions or concerns you might have. I am very proud of our school and the nurturing it provides to our children. The classroom size is wonderful, no overcrowding here. Although I feel the parent involvement is more than lacking, in hopes with getting a new Principal this year we're hoping this may change too.
