The homework is always worksheets, which are nothing but busy work. The students never receive any of their work back and I do not believe it is actually graded. The school claims it is against the law to return graded work.
The principal and assistant principal here are wonderful, but I would not recommend this school. A lot of people are under the impression that because it is affiliated with the museum, the school is excellent. This is far from true; my child has been to the museum once all year (for an honor roll ceremony). The teacher does not challenge my child or facilitate growth. She is very comfortable with and praises mediocrity--something I've never seen from an educator. I understand teachers can not do everything when it comes to my child's education, but I feel like she hasn't learned much of anything from this school. I only gave two stars because of the principal and assistant principal's demeanor. They really seem to care about the kids and their educations. I also realize it could just be this specific teacher.
I have 3 children at Mosi Partnership School and they absolutely love everything about the school except one thing THE FOOD! There are no choices and unfortunately I believe the school is ripping off the district as far as what's supposed to be served. All 3 of my kids did a great job adapting to the school, the small classes were a big plus (even though one of my kids is being left back but I believe that that is not from lack of effort on his teachers part) they all praise the teachers and the school but cry everyday from being hungry at school. So because I truly believe that Mosi is doing something wrong as far as the breakfast and lunch menu I could only give them 4 stars.
This is a horrible school! My daughter is advanced in both reading and math and this school has yet to challenge her. After discussing with the teacher why the students are being taught to write their own names and work on pre-k level material in the 1ST GRADE, I was met with resentment and a negative attitude that was directed towards not only myself but my 6 year old daughter. My daughter has loved school and learning from the day she opened up her first book and is now begging me to not attend every morning. The majority of the time the teacher speaks to the students only in Spanish, leaving out the children who are only English speakers. My daughter asked her to go to the restroom and she was told she could not go! This teacher should reconsider her career choice because she is not in any way contributing to Hillsborough County's education system. My daughter comes home on a daily basis telling me that she constantly feels like the teacher is angry with the class. Save yourself the time and trouble and DO NOT listen to or be fooled by the fact that this school is connected to a museum, it's NOT worth having your child being treated poorly or not being challenged academically.
My son is in 4th grade . He did his 3rd grade in Mosi. Excellent school ! I have seen a wonderful development in my son in last year. The teachers are wonderful. Keep updated about students work all the time. take extra efforts for students developement.
I am disappointed and devastated by the school, staff, teachers and even bus driver. My son is 2nd grade and we are currently changing the school. Teachers put zero effort into progress of children`s education,in basic, reading, writing and math.Communication is hard to maintain as regardless of any talk they haven`t better anything.Bullying is another thing also. My son was asking me with tears in his eyes not to let him go on the bus again. I am being my son`t teacher more than his teacher itself. The list is long. The biggest mistake of my life was having my son there. I had spoken to other parents as well. Sadly, we share the oppinions.
MY DAUGHTER ONLY ATTENDED MOSI FOR 2ND GRADE.....LAST YEAR. THE PRINCIPAL AND FACULTY HERE ARE TERRIBLE AND DONT CARE ABOUT THE CHILDREN. MY CHILD NOW GOES TO ANOTHER SCHOOL . AT THE END OF THIS YEAR SHE'S AN HONOR ROLL STUDENT. THEY DONT WANT TO TAKE TIME TO HELP ANY CHILDREN THAT MIGHT NEED ALITTLE EXTRA HELP..
MOSI Partnership School works in collaboration with the museum to really expand the world of our students. The staff really takes advantage of of the wonderful programs offered by the museum to supplement our lessons. MOSI Partnership is an A rated school. It is a small school and it feels like a family. The students and staff know each other well and everyone works hard. I really enjoy working there.
