Prospect Elementary School 1

My children only attended this school for a few months after we moved to the state halfway through the year. My kids, then in second and third grade, had been going to Washington schools that hadn't covered some material that had already been taught at their grade levels here. Both of their teachers outright bullied them and made them feel unintelligent, my son's teacher even making him stay in at recess on his first day because he didn't know the times tables that he hadn't been taught yet. We felt unwelcome here and mistreated by the teachers as well as the principal. Thankfully we won a lottery to get them into Paramount Elementary the next year, and the difference between the two schools was night and day. Prospect just wasn't an environment I wanted to kids to be in.

We are disappointed and moved our kids. Some of the problem is curriculum, but also some teachers refuse to ensure EVERY child is challenged and learns. (though some are fantastic). We had problems with a 1st grade teacher, and got no support from the principal, only reassurance that she is a good teacher. The district makes it worse by allowing 800 kids in a school for 650, while building in the zone continues.

We were very disappointed by this school. My son was both bullied by students and his 1st grade teacher. He was left bored and unchallenged everyday. His teacher would argue with him in front of the class regularly and was usually wrong about what she argued with him about. A student spit in his face and when he told the teacher the teacher told him to worry about himself and did nothing about it. I am so thankful he got into North Star Charter School where he has thrived! We have never had one issue with bulling and he continues to be challenged academically. Thank God for Charter schools!!

We have been with this school since it first opened. It has a wonderful caring staff and a great principal. There are lot of opportunities to volunteer and become very involved as a parent.

This school is one of the best in the Meridian School District. The teachers are fabulous, the parents are wonderful, and my kids have thrived at this school.
