Venetia leaves a little to be desired. The school is unecessarily strict. Often thru the day the children sit on the floor. In the morning while waiting for teachers to allow them in the classroom. After lunch while waiting for their teachers to get them from the lunch room and during these times often other students are diciplining/watching the kids who are sitting. I have seen this go on for two years and feel it is not appropriate to say the least.
So far I do not have any issues with the school. My daughter teacher lets me know how she is doing and if she needs any improvement.
My children were re-zoned to this school, a fact which I was not informed of until 1 week before school started. I have not received any information regarding this school, or any feedback from the teachers. I get a smiley face or a frown, no personal notes. I would like to know how and what my children are doing everyday. I understand the teachers have more than one student, but how am I supposed to help my child if I have no clue what is going on in the classroom?
the class size is well above 22 students per class the data on this site is not accurate.
Parent involvement is not what I would expect, I personally blame part of this on the school office. Each year I fill out a form stating what I would volunteer to help with. Not once in 3 years has a teacher called to say Yes please come help do this. This year when the teacher told me that she had no room mother I asked what about the form. They didn't give them to her. I also believe that more parents would show support for their honor students if the awards programs were not at 9 a.m. and 2 p.m. Why not in an evening? Maybe put the awards before the PTA meeting. Although the PTA meetings hardly ever bring up any issues that involve parent involvement. My second complaint... which I'm known for is the lunches. The younger students eat first, but by time the older students get to lunch the 'menu' has changed because they run out of what was forcast as the meal of the day... or (and I've been to many a school lunch) it's burnt. A balanced meal is NOT mashed potatoes or tater tots with pizza. Why not serve fruit that isn't brown from sitting out for hours? I now send sack lunches.
