St Thomas More Elementary School 1

This school is not helpful towards any child that may need extra help. For a religious academy, you'd think they'd be willing to help any of God's children, but when it's time to step up, they step down. A child who requires sunglasses to be worn or the lights to be dimmed because they are light sensitive is not a difficult accommodation . Nor is clicking the "enlarge print" on a copy machine should it be necessary. These accomodations do not require "equipment" and asking a teacher (being a teacher myself) to possibly work one on one-on occasion- is, I thought, part of the job of a teacher. I guess to be a teacher at this Academy is only to require them to do the bare minimum at best. Being told that these accomadtions are what public schools are for is completely unacceptable. I couldn't even get a tour of the building! So unless your child is practically perfect if every way, this is NOT a welcoming facility and in my opinion, God should be desgraced :-(
