This school expects students that are only 9 or 10 years old to speak up and ask for help. These are little kids! They are not effective in identifying kids who are struggling academically or socially and dealing with it!
Homework is sent home with little instruction. Common core math is not they way most of the parents in this school learned yet they send students home who clearly don't understand and expect parents to be the teacher. "she hasn't asked for help" they tell us, really?? she is 10! Teachers should be able to identify a struggling student and deal with it, not send it home for the parent to deal with.
This school turns a blind eye to blatant bullying by the dominant racial group (Hispanic) to minorities - in this school the minority is Caucasian. Poor job teaching diversity, tolerance and accepting racial differences among their student body and the community in general.
I am not happy with north windham school at all ,my 2 first graders are reading below level and dont feel they get the one on one they need, I have one teacher that is fighting for the one on one and seems to be getting nowhere with the school, also I signed up in Oct.2008 for the tutoring and just recently 5/09 statred thier tutoring and they will probably not finish as school is almost over, they will probably havreto go to summer school not fair to them>>> homework for first graders are sometimes 4 pages a night when can these kids just be kids 7 hours of school and another 2 hours of homework !!!!!!!!
I am not happy with north windham school at all and am currently looking to move my child out of this school. I feel they are failing my child and do not take the time to give him the extra help he needs
