Bad experience, my child had a little argument with another boy that was bothering him, and one of the male staff employee, asked my child to argue with him instead, i spoke with the principal and all she said was that she could discuss their conduct codes with us, what a principal, no wonder her employee puts himself to a childs level, very rude and unprofessional ,no wonder they have such bad reviews , im looking for another school koa is a disaster.
Administration is out of control! I have been a long time parent of Koa, since it first opened and I am appalled on how the school is dwindling. Administration and its staff no longer cares to help parents or better said will only help with what they care to. They are not willing to help parents or needs, yet to make things difficult for you and be careful if you question their responses, I have seen them call the police on parents that were NOT out of control! Un real!! I mean even the SAC/PTO has gone down significantly! It's a shame that the school that started out so great has gone down hill due to a power trip!
Koa Elementary is a wonderful school. Administration is very involved, very supportive of teachers, parents and students. I have personally witnessed many parents out of control...disrespectful, vulgar language and very in your face attitude. As a parent, I am appalled at their actions. The school deals with many situations, many personalities and all in all, they do everything they can to make sure our children are learning and safe.
There are only a handful of great teachers, administration abuses its powers, they do not want to hear parents or value their opinions, the first sign of disagreement, they will call the police! We entrust them to teach our children about respect and enforce non-bullying but here we have administration bullying parents. Its a wonder why parent involvement has dropped year by year.
I dont feel the faculty is there for the parents and i believe that they need to stop basing their class agenda to the fcat and more on what the children need. The teachers are great. The front office could use some help.
