My son is only in first grade but I have been extremly happy with the school and his academic achievements. His teachers are involved and give constructive feedback. He has tested well and is reading at a second grade level. I only wished the school offered a second language.
Fairness??? Paying a child who is smarter because they complete an assignment in the allotted time isn't fair to the others in class and it isn't fair to students who don't receive the money. Sending book bags and other gifts home with certain children isn't fair! Paying for certain students books at a book fair isn't fair! Pay for certain students filed trips isn't fair!
I was a student at Tobin (before they made the new building) and my last year attending was 2005 . I have to say I loved Tobin School!! All of my teachers throughout the years helped me so much and they always tried helping me however they could. Thanks to them I'm now a successful person in college along with many of my classmates back then.
