Yes, they have a 0 bullying policy and enforce it. Positive reinforcement for nice deeds and good behavior. My children seem to get along with everyone and do not talk of bullying or other problems. If there is ever a problem they seem to nip it in the butt right away.
Teacher do an awesome job. Some of the teacher even go out of their way to assign different assignments based on ability. Challenging the students who may be ahead to keep them interested. My children have liked all the teachers they have had at Arbury.
Newsletters, emails and notes home make homework assignments clear. There is enough homework to see what your children are doing in class but not so much its a huge burden. There is always open communication between parent and teacher if there are problems or questions regarding assignments.
Arbury Hills is amazing. At first I was disappointed my children would move from Rogus (kindergarten) to Arbury. But my experience at Arbury has been much better. The teachers and staff at Arbury truly care about my children. Even teachers my children have not had seem to take a personal interest in my children's success. The principal is always involved and takes an active interest in all the children. I feel good about sending my children to this school and feel it is a nurturing environment by all. Where the Stars Shine! Thank you to all Arbury Hills staff and teachers!
This is a marvelous neighborhood school! My three kids all went there. Sure, it is older, but newer is not necessarily better. This school has heart and is small enough to take care of every student in a special way and educate them well. The teachers are fabulous. I was glad my kids went there rather than the larger, newer schools elsewhere in the district. When they are young, a small school is best. I work in a school (in a different district) and I know whereof I speak. Don't be fooled by bells and whistles. GREAT SCHOOL.
