I am the parent of a Kindergartener in Mrs. Monahan's class. She is an extremely devoted and caring teacher and my son is so lucky to have her. This school is amazing!
I am the parent of a 'K' in Miss Zaker's class, he loves it. I also have a 5th grader who is attending the Connor Shaw Center. I could not be more pleased with all aspects of Connor Shaw. When she was at Green Garden last year she & I dealt with major 'bullying' issues. I am very happy to say that we are no longer dealing with that issue! The only issue that I have is the K-12 riding on the same bus. However, the bus drivers seem to keep all of the students in check. If I were you I would stay in District 207-u. My husband & i are both in education and we are pleased with the district overall. As the previous parent stated, every district and school has their issues.
I am responding to the recent concern of a parent who is pleased with Green Garden elementary school but is concerned about the 5th grade level and up. I have children who have attended those schools and I am pleased with them so far. No matter where you go, there will be challenges to face. I don't feel it is necessary to move out of the district. Good luck with your decision.
My son currently attends Miss Zaker's kintergarden class and loves it! You can't find the small class size of 16 anywhere else. I am very happy with the Green Garden elementary school in general. Even though he would like to ride the bus both to and from school, we do drive our son to school in the morning as school starts very early at 7:50am. He would have to be at the bus stop by 7:00am (even though we live 5 mins away!) Although, I am happy with Green Garden Elementary, I am very concerned about the Peotone School district from 5th grade through the High School level. I have have heard of alot of problems at that grade level and am seriously thinking of moving out of this school district because of it.
We moved from a much larger school where children were just 'numbers'. We love the smaller class sizes and were impressed that the principal knew the names of all the children in the hallway and addressed them by their names.
I agree our school needs a more challenging curriculum. I am happy with the adminstration in the district and are wonderful teachers at Green Garden School. I feel the school is a safe learning environment.
The environment is safe, the curriculum should be more challenging. There is a need for a science fair and a stronger math and science component. There is a cafeteria in the building which is not being adequately used and I see the need for extra activities after school especially if they are not going to incorporate foreign language within the school day. The biggest problem has to be my elementary children riding the school bus with Jr. and high school students.
