Here's the thing about their homework. Most of it's average but much of it's pointless. Many of the problems ask the students for their opinion and it's been my experience that if the teachers don't agree with YOUR OPINION they will mark it wrong. My son has brought math and english homework home and the pages were misprinted so much so that instead of reprinting them the teachers asked the students to rewrite the questions or problems themselves and then answer them.
I read these reviews and I strongly disagree. The teachers are extremely lazy, education is average if that and if your single father like me let me tell you right now DO NOT SEND YOUR CHILD TO THIS SCHOOL!!! THEY DO NOT LIKE SINGLE DADS AND THEY'VE MADE THAT PERFECTLY CLEAR!!! He's gone to this school for 2 years now. His grades are excellent but the lessons and homework are printed off of a website. I don't call that a higher education. The first year I requested a conference with his teacher at least 5 times and directly asked her for a conference and she said she would get back with me and NEVER DID. She was out almost the entire year having babies and every time I did see her that was her excuse for not having a conference with me. My son is now in 2nd grade. He now has 2 lazy teachers and again his grades are great but he's not being challenged enough and their response to him finishing before everyone else in his class is not to move him up or give him more work but to make him sit quietly until the rest of the class catches up to him. I take issue with that. NO ONE AT THIS SCHOOL SEEMS TO CLAIM ANY RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE WORK THEY DO. His teachers were very confrontational when I met them for a parent/teacher conference. I told them my child isn't being challenged enough and they needed to allow him to do more and somehow they took that and told me flat out "Well, that's a job for his parent it's not our job to do that" I let them know "Yeah your his teachers it is your responsibility to teach him all you can" They quickly shot that down and again tried to place the blame on me and it concluded with them informing me that my child is a B+ student and if I expect him to learn more than I need to teach him more myself. That type of response from a teacher to a parent is unacceptable to say the least. My child just recently tested gifted and I went today to have a conference with them and another woman and right off the bat once the woman realized I was a single parent and that no woman would be joining me they quickly down played my child's score when I was told by the school psychologist that he scored a 135 and the requirement for gifted was 130 and higher. When I told them it's not right that they use my status as a single parent against my child I was told to leave. My child will not be attending next year UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES!!!
I actually moved out of the whole school district. I seen too many kids including my own going thru school not learning anything. they believe they are a daycare and the parents are supposed to be the teachers. But dont speak your mind they are a very tight click.
