Teacher effectiveness: Neutral

I can say there is lack of monitoring as in this situation, another student got into the bathroom with my child & that student proceeded to pull his own pants down in front of mine-not a good thing!

Amount of homework: Disagree

1st grade was given no homework. I advised that Child needed think work which was ignored.

Their counselor/psy want what they want regardless of illness caused by environmental to a child under the guise of peer interaction, mind you child is not in a classroom or peer group of 1. Many are still closed minded at this school no matter who is in certain positions...if you do not act &/or think &/or respond like they want you to...get the picture. Close mindedness is still here & has been since the 90's. Many STILL do not understand how some can be effected by a polluted environment, allergies, sick buildings that NONE want to put HEPA filtration in, full A/C in, clean up...so if you utilize other routes to address these facets that are not within their "NORM' of thinking it appears to make you a target especially when you are not financially well off. DO NOT GIVE THEM ACCESS TO TALK TO YOUR DOCTOR unless you can trust your Dr. to talk with you first about the letter to send to them! Once this was done they possibly in concert with EX got the Allergist (I filed a complaint on after) to write a controversial letter. Child takes as much medicine as possible, has had adverse/allergic reactions to others, inflammation/congestion can be lessened by avoidance to offending substances/dietary changes, etc...but SOME want to use surgery as a means which in these circumstances is not 100% guaranteed. EX (not believing in medical) will not work with me on anything. They appear to just want SHEEPLE...however in their claimed progressive thinking are actually regressive as there are other ways to address medical aspects, just not the ones they want, like or accept & you wonder why there is lack of acceptance for some in Society...there is more acceptance for mental illness & drug/alcohol addiction than for a parent who attempts to THINK OUTSIDE THE BOX to minimize exposures to keep a child well enough to be in school as much as possible. I believe the terms that can be utilized here are BULLYING, SEVERE ANIMOSITY, LACK OF ACCEPTANCE, others as to them, it is all about inclusion at the health cost of a child, so AGAIN, child is not in a peer group or class of ONE! Feels like I am being singled out due to my med/financial because I do not have an MD, RN, PSY or other title after my name & attempt to THINK & utilize LOGIC Abuse/abuse of power comes in many forms...even in this day & age! I just want to keep my child as well as possible.

EL Sierra is a small, tight knit neighborhood school. The open concept building is a huge plus and shows how well the students and staff all work together.
