Thomas Edison Elementary School 1

I can not express how disappointed I am in the experience my children have had at this school. There are a few teachers there that need direction on how to interact with parents and children better. The strict lunchtime rules are an issue both my children and I have. Children are not allowed to talk during lunch. My daughter has informed that her "table" was not allow to begin EATING lunch until a teacher decided they were quiet enough. Additionally, my son told me that he was not allowed to eat certain items of his lunch - A lunch I packed him - until he finished other items first. There was also an "incident" where some school official called me to talk my son into going back into his classroom. Apparently, several distraught children were removed from my son's classroom when his teacher let some "situation" escalate to the point where she lost control of her classroom. I never received clarification from the principal, school nurse, or school social worker. The teacher eventually followed up with me after I pursued the issue with the school. These are just a few of the reasons my family has decided to move out of this school district.
