I am very disappointed in this school. Recently moved and transferred my son from all day kindergarten to half day. Dropping my son off was a nightmare. Students in the streets since drop off on school property is only for buses. Kindergartners need to be walked to the back of the building while cars are being parked in the street blocking other drop offs. I was able to walk right into the building with no one stopping me. 5th graders monitor the doors. (Ridiculous) I wouldn't want my 5th grader confronting someone wanting to get in the building. Where are all the teachers and why isn't there more required parent involvement? Emailed principal who couldn't even respond back regarding the bus service.
I agree there should be more parent involvement and of course we should offer language courses for both ethnic groups....I do not want to sound petty but today i had an encounter with the school nurse and she seems to be a little rude when it comes to speaking with the parents everytime i see her she really acts like shes on edge about something..i just think somebody really needs to talk to her about her attitude i think it could be more positive. My wife is a teacher so i understand the stresses involved but you do not need to take it out on the parents or show it in front of the children.
The entire staff is great. They are very nice and friendly and the they go all out to help the students feel welcome at school and learn.
Staff is hard working and courteous. They are always on the lookout for what is best for the students. The principal is a quiet leader who is always seeking ways to improve the school. Parent involvement is not great. There seems to be a core of parents who do all of the work. They work quite hard for the kids....
I have spoken with 3 different parents of children in attendance at this school. All said that they are unhappy with the class sizes and the time wasted in translating curriculm to 2 different ethnic groups (see SAT scores). All agreed that the school could take advantage of this by providing language courses so that both groups could become bilingual and understand each other.
