I would like to say thank you to the principal and teachers for working so hard to continue to make the school better and better. I appreciate that my child is not just a number to them but is a family member. Everyone on staff knows every child by name and really seems to care about them.
The teachers are hard working and seem to genuinely care about their students. Some teachers just like every school have had personal issues come up, my son's teacher one year had cancer and couldn't come back the next year. Teachers are people and have lives, families and issues like everyone else. Overall the teachers are great!!!
I am happy with the level of homework given. With the previous company my son had almost 2 hours of homework it was ridiculous. Now my son gets his homework packet at the beginning of the week along with a teach newsletter that tells what he is learning in class that is due at the end of the week.
The school develops persistence and determination because they work to motivate all students, even the ones that may come to the school with behavior issues like my friend's son who is now doing excellent. They push and support the students to be their best.
They definitely teach students to care and show empathy. In fact, even for small disagreements between students they meet with students and work to teach kids to treat each other right. My son was having an issue with another student, when he told his teacher the teacher told the principal and she had the students meet and talk things out. This avoided them having a bigger issue. Now they get along fine. Right now the school has been collecting items for Tornado victims in Cape Coral. They also do a fundraiser for victimes of cancer and sponsor families who are struggling during each holiday.
Love this school!!! It is like a private school setting that is free and public where the teachers and administrators treat students and parents like family. My son is in 3rd grade and has been at the school since he was in kindergarten. I was almost ready to change schools a little over 2 years ago when the new company took over because I was not happy with the previous company and administration. However, with the new company teachers and the administrator give out their cell phone numbers and email so parents can call them anytime. The school has an open door policy and actually welcomes parents to come in and volunteer. The school has great communication and uses a call out system along with flyers and letters. Parents are notified about everything, when parents don't pick up the call the first time the system continues to call them. I sometimes get tired of the calls but appreciate them. Some parents just need to pick up the phone instead of waiting until the system calls them back later. Not only do they have an ESE program that supports students with disabilities, but they work to support all students needs, with their small class sizes and caring teachers and staff they are able to do more than most schools. Don't get me wrong they do believe in teaching students to develop strong character and hold them accountable for their behavior and that is what I want. Some parents rather make excuses for their kids rather than teach them right and wrong. My sons best friend had serious behavior issues at his previous school so he moved to this school. They developed a special plan to help him improve his behavior and rewarded him for his good behavior and yes shall I say it held him accountable for bad choices he made. Now he has gone from an F student to a honor roll student and his behavior has improved greatly. I come to the school regularly and volunteer and the principal and teachers are always welcoming and appreciative. I highly recommed this school to all families and students.
