We were there for 3 years. REally great Kindergarten experience. AMAZING 1st grade teacher... maybe that is why the difference with the 2nd grade teacher was so hard to accept. We ended moving. 2nd grade teacher made my kid not want to go to school anymore. Grounded recess with out telling parents, missed most days of school, jumped units just because "she was behind". Horrible 2nd grade experience. They have amazing teachers but as always pretty awful ones find their way. I also had not such a good experiences with some of their specialist.. The Speech pathologists were a AMAZING but they changed them EVERY YEAR!. overall.. I think I give them average just because the k and 1st grade teacher were incredible. But that awful 2nd grade teacher made us MOVE.
For once, my kid was once grounded with this words " I do not thrust you 5, so you are not having recess, the rest can go out". Even when the kids were saying they didn't do it and the teacher didn't even know who did it. How come this will teach my kid fairness?.
A real gem which stands out In the sameness of other surrounding Fairfield County schools. This school has a diverse population (many from overseas) which skews standardized test scores--don't be fooled by the higher achieving schools close by. Why? Fox Run has a lot of funding which is put to use in an incredible reading achievement program. It also has smaller class sizes (compared to neighboring school districts) with teachers assistants in every classroom which allows for more one on one teacher to student interaction. The teachers care and the PTA is very involved.
