This school is wonderful! I student taught there as well, before moving to Nevada for higher pay, and I can say that depending on the teacher, your child will have a great experience. There are some teachers who are very concerned with winning the golden apple award and may neglect what is really important, and some just want every child to be the best they can be. For the most part, every teacher in this school certainly is not making a bucket of money! They're making a living and being rewarded by students who try their best! The teachers are doing the best they can considering there is one teacher to every 35, plus parents (70) equals about 105 new people to deal with every year...and they ALL want your attention! Be nice to teachers, parents. They're only human.
This school reminds me of a suburban school. The area is very lucky to have so many experienced teachers that have obtained higher education degrees. A majority of the teachers have obtained their Master's degrees while others are National Board certified. The level of education the children are receiving is well above the standards of most city and even suburban schools! If teachers were worried about their paychecks, they wouldn't have become teachers in the first place!
The school does not have the students best interests at heart. They are selective in offering assistance to students who need it most. The majority of the staff do not care for the students as much as their own paychecks.
I student taught there and saw a big improvement from 'my day' there as a child. They have a super strong PTA, great resources, and a staff full of talented and caring teachers. A diamond of a school.
