Lots of great teachers & admistration. Major complaint is watching the same exact group of students travel together in the same class from kindergarten to fifth grade. Groups of 7-8 (sometimes more) , all best of friends, parents all best friends apparently with someone in admistration go to same class with the most requested teacher every year .
I do not agree that homework should be given. I am ok with reviewing before a test and reading at night, but any other homework cuts into my time with my kids. We haven't had any teachers that give excessive homework. I just think any homework is too much.
I have twins that have gone to this school since Kindergarten. We have had the most amazing teachers. My children still have photos of all their teachers up in their rooms. Loved them all. Great teachers willing to engage my children and make lots of teachable moments!! My only complaint about the school is Mrs. Teal/guidance counselor is rude and condescending to parents. No one else at the school acts this way. She doesn't fit in. Administration is great and responds to complaints immediately. PTA has fun events that help my kids feel a part of the school community. The school is in the process of getting more technology! Good place to send your kids.
I have two kids that go to this school. This is their 4th year and i love it. They have great teachers and do a lot of activates. If your a mom that like to be involved in your kids school this would be the best place. I'm really sad one of my kids is going off to middle school but i'm also happy i know he is papered. by they way Mrs. Black, Mrs. Newton, Mrs. Hudson, Mrs. Allegri , Swope and VanDeBoe You are great teachers!!!!!
I had 2 children at the school, was there for 6 years. Every year it got worse and worse. While there are some AMAZING teachers there are also a few bad teachers and the principal is controlling, micro-manages everything and every aspect and she also keeps opening up choice making the tiny school that holds about 700 students (max) has about 800. Pick up and drop off are night mares. She allows parents to pick teachers, but when too many pick one teacher, she picks her favorites. There was also a bullying incident with a couple of age groups and it was essentially swept under the carpet. We left and about 5 parents that I know followed suit. I am sure there is more since there is less than 800 and at start of school there was over 800. It's a shame because it was a fantastic school.
