My son started kindergarten in this school under Ana Cordal as principal, we always have information about school activities and everything that happens with our child, however Ana Cordal was promoted and a new principal came on board an the school changed for bad, there are not love for the children, no communications with parents and in my opinion my child have felt behind on his education, i would encourage any parent too search other options first.
My son started in Kindergarden at RECS and this year is in 5th grade, also my daughter is in 3rd grade now and it has been a great school for both of my kids. The school is more strict than other, but now sure why people see it as a negative, I see it as a big plus. If you want to go easy with the education of your kids then go and found another school and good luck with their future!!!
I highly recommend the school to everybody cares about their kids future.
My daughter's teacher was very caring and attentive with her students. The learning environment is positive, structured and fun for the children and there's mutual respect between the teachers, administrators and the children. Parents are kept abreast of the child's progress and feedback is given regularly. I have been very pleased overall and my daughter loves her school.
There is a significant amount of homework and projects but unfortunately, this seems to be the norm in schools today. A lot of the homework does require some level of parent involvement. There is homework assistance in aftercare which is a great help. The Superintendent in the School District has been talking about reducing the heavy load of homework assignments which would allow the kids to have more time for after school sports, activities and creative play. Hopefully this will come into effect soon.
The teachers are caring and friendly and has a strong curriculum. In addition to the standard courses, the students also learn art, physical education, music, computers and Spanish- one class each day of the week. It is a small enough school where the administrators even get to know the students by name. The school is very organized and is a fun, positive learning environment. The grounds are kept nicely inside and out. There are plenty of optional after school programs, although somewhat expensive. The local traffic for drop off/pick up can sometimes be a bit cumbersome but is usually managed effectively by the volunteer parents and teachers. As a charter school, parents are required to volunteer and plenty of opportunities are available to help at the school year round.
Everything is good about this school! Our son loves it! I was scared at the beginning because some people say it is like a mitary school. Now I can say it is not, they love discipline and good behave children and that is good!
