I've had two children to attend this school and now on my third. This year has been the worse ever, how do you have a school with three administrators and the students run rampant during dismissal, morning arrrival and the cafeteria is one to be reckon with. I volunteer at the school and it hasn't been a day that a student hasn't been seen walking the hall like he she has no place to be. The teachers receive no support from the top and the kids practically run the school. This is not the Sue Reynolds my older kids experienced 4 years ago I am so ready for this year to be over so that my daughter can go elsewhere.
There is no respect with the majority of the students. Majority of the teachers try but most of these kids are bullies. My kids really dislike this school because there are so many mean kids here. There's no compassion or respect. Most of these kids are brats.
Beginning of the year. There wasn't any papers that came home, talking about procedures of the classroom, or homework. They gave us papers and we had to figure when it was due. Some of the options, my 2nd grader hadn't even learned yet. Then, the teacher tells us later on..oh well if she doesn't know it. That's ok. It's for the kids that do. No explanation or anything. And that's with multiple teachers here.
They give you the piece of homework, there's a whole much of options. Doesn't tell you how much the kids need to do that night or even when it's due. There really hasn't been but communication between the 2nd or 3rd grade teachers. And the only reason I talk more to the kindergarten teacher is because my son was getting hit.
There is a lack of discipline, students know that they can get away with doing whatever they want, and only get a stern talking to. There is no backing between the office staff and the teachers. The staff are overworked and no help available. Some teachers (not all) are under qualified. The supplies are outdated and in bad shape.
There is hardly any structure within the staff, and they have something called "centers", so the teachers aren't focusing on the students as a whole and as individual. It boils down to the principal and the way the school is run.
The students get a worksheet or a newsletter, and one it is the days of the week, and there may be a question or 2 for that day (one for reading and one for math), and they may have spelling words to study with no directions on what to do. There is also some websites they students can go on for practice that is not graded on.Go on to the schools website, click on parents and go to homework and see for yourself.
