Overal, the teachers, administration, and staff care. With that said, you are the parent and you MUST pay attention. Many times, the teachers only do what the must do, not what needs to be done. They tend to focus on the problem kids because they disrupt so much. There also seems to be a disconnect between teachers and administration at ever level. Neither seem to be very happy. If you are looking for a proactive school...this isn't it. My child was in the "gifted" program, but the kids who needed help got much more attention. In fact, my child needs were ignored because he wasn't a touble maker and he was smart. Again, I think this is where the public education system is going in gneral. When I brought it to their attention, he was moved ahead to another grade and enjoyed it much more. HOWEVER, THEY WOULD HAVE DONE NOTHING UNLESS I ASKED. Due to "no child left behind", only the kids who need more help are assisted. I decided to move him to a school that has a better track record for helping kids to excel instead of just to pass. I do feel they are working to make it better though. I just don't have time to wait for it to happen.
This school is fantastic! The teacher & faculty involvement is above and beyond what any parent could ask for. The teachers are kind, caring and give so much of themselves. Mrs. Wilson the principal & Mr. Holt the Vice Principal are so wonderful & caring! My son has just left the 5th grade to go to middle school & I am sad to leave all the wonderful people behind. I want to thank everyone at the school for giving my children such a wonderful education & experience.
