John F Kennedy Elementary School 1

I just recently found out that this school doesn't care whether students pass or fail their classes, they still move on to the next grade. RIDICULOUS! How is a student going to develop properly this way? If you don't get good grades, you don't go to the next grade. Simple as that. How can one student with bad grades be rewarded the same as one who tried hard and earned good grades? Doesn't seem right or fair.

For advocating on behalf of many children in this school since their voice and needs get lost.

If a child has trouble expressing himself and can't keep themselves collected at 6 compassion should be shown not a crisis team called to restrain children and lock them up in their padded closet.

Teacher effectiveness: Very ineffective

The mentality is to get rid of the problem when it arises so they don't take time to properly address certain issues but brush them off.

The parent has to advocate everything for the child who has no say in the school environment.

The children are expected to be a one size fits all model so hard to be respected when you don't fit the mold.

They don't want to spend money on getting kids with special education properly evaluated and parents have to jump through hoops to get any help

I recently learned that the school has an isolated time out room, padded room once used as a small office or their "igloo", that they use without notifying the parents. Imagine finding out as a parent by reading a requested behavioral log of an adopted child who experienced trauma in his early years that the school, knowing his background, chose to use this type of punishment as a means to control a temper tantrum where he threw markers in class while upset. They have done 6 of these isolated timeouts hours at a time. He is 6. I hope that no one has to ever go through what I went through with this school and would encourage all parents to request a behavioral log for your child if you ever had to pick him up from school at their request.
