Some of the teachers think students that score low on tests should not be there! Some teachers form cliques and do not care about the children and doing what is right for the students. They only care about making sure they look good! Teachers need to learn all children can learn no matter what the socioeconomic status!
The homework is necessary for practicing and displaying a good understanding of what is being taught in class. There are times that they're projects can be overwhelming, but it is probably that way at most schools who offer strong academics.
These students are taught learner profiles such as respect, tolerance, empathy, enthusiasm, and other wonderful traits that are important for developing a caring community member. They are rewarded at any time if another student or staff catches them in the act of displaying any of these wonderful traits.
We have 3 kids at this school. This is a school who really encourages your child to take pride in themselves. They help your child succeed and offer many extra programs for your child to enhance their interest such as art, strings, robotics, geography, and more. This school also encourages parent involvement. It is more rigorous than other elementary schools, but you will be amazed what abilities the teachers bring out in your child. We love the teachers here and are very grateful we have found this school to lay such a great foundation for our children.
I couldn't have imagined my son's first year of school being any better. His teacher was great and the rest of the staff was as well. The International Baccalaureate program is terrific. The classes are very diverse and the students are able to learn about other cultures and I believe that helps them become more well-rounded individuals later in life. I am very happy to have such a great school close to home that my child can attend.
