My son attends kindergarten in the multi-age classroom and has really excelled this year, primarily due to the small class size (18 students) and the opportunity to follow what the first graders are doing. The teacher has been fantastic and my son really benefitted from the one on one setting he received because of the small number of students. I am afraid, however, that this intimacy will change next year when he will be in a full class with the other first graders.
The speech teacher, Mrs. Jean is fantastic. My son goes to her one day a week and has shown great improvement in all of his speech sounds. He loves to be in class with her and truly has grown in vocabulary as well as pronunciation due to her teaching.
As a former student at this school, I just want to say that my experience at Solomon was wonderful. I learned so much about life as well as academics. In fact, I was the valedictorian of the graduating class of 1997. As a young African-American female coming into such a diverse environment, it was great. I learned so much about other cultures and I believe that this shaped the person that I am today.
