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 The supplies are outdated and in bad shape.
Coach Carl, who is always concerned about the students and is always teaching them new things, while being concerned about their overall wellbeing and health.
Ms. Ferguson (5th grade), who tries to be a positive role model and who has also earned the respect of her students. She is the model teacher, who doesn't take the students crap, but she shows overall concern for her students.
The lunch room staff; janitorial/maintenance staff, for all the hardwork and time they put in to their highly demanding jobs.
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.
there isn't enough activities for the students to get into, the teachers do not arrive on time for gym and extra (dance and music), or arrive on time to pick up students. There is a lack of control inside the classrooms, so if the teachers don't show it, how can they expect the students to show it.
the student body know they can do what they want when they want, and they also know the school would hardly ever call the parents if they were to get into a fight or do something against the rules, the school does NOT follow the 7 steps to discipline. So how can the school expect respect from the students, when the school doesn't even follow it's own rules.
This school was very unorganized. The teachers were lazy and just passed my child. He received great grades in this school, yet when we transferred to a new school I was told he was below grade level. Also, all records were "lost" we we transferred.
My son and I LOVE this school. We are military and are moving soon that makes us very sad. Best school we have ever been to. The Principal, Teacher and staff are amazing, warm and kind. They truely do what ever it takes to help your child reach thier goals and potential. Class rooms are small, they have PE and recess everyday and parties and field trips. They identified a learning disablity with my son and worked with me, and in a timely manner to get the extra help and attention he needed. He has improvered tremendously and brings home only A's and B's every report card and no longer complains about going to school. Thank you from the bottom of my heart SRE!!!
I have nothing but excellent memories of working with this school. The principal and Nancy majors were wonderful. My previous experience of schools in Georgia was Bequi Coar's let me slam my opinion down your throat. this school works with parents and I never saw so many parents and students engaged. My child is now in high school and on the Honor Roll and I know it is because of the greqat foundation built here!!!! And Nancy Majors-every Christmas I think of you with that ornament you made for my son!!! Thanks.
