Amount of homework: Just right
July 18, 2015
Just right for my daughter's age, in pre-k. She is 4 going on 5 and given age appropriate homework every week. Sent home Monday and due Friday. Those who turn in their homework get to pick a treat out of the treasure box

I do feel that persistence is a quality in the pre-k program. Every week the children have age appropriate homework to finish at home. It is sent home on Monday and handed in no later than Friday for a treat out of the treasure box.

Again, my daughter is only in pre-k, so I have not had enough experience with the teachers to come to a conclusion on this topic.

My daughter is only in pre-k at this time, so I'm not completely sure at this time. There has only been one instance where my daughter felt she was being mistreated by another student and when I approached her teacher so I could fully understand the situation, I felt as though she was angry at me for even asking and basically just blew it off as no big deal.. not very friendly or understanding at all

Teachers not as friendly or patient as you might expect from a pre-k teacher, based on my experience with other schools

Teacher effectiveness: Somewhat effective

The teachers my daughter has had have not been as patient or as kind as you might expect a pre-k to be.

My daughter is only in Pre-K right now at Staunton Elementary, but compared to 2 other schools (which I absolutely LOVED) that I have dealt with through my older children, I am not very impressed with this school at all. They are very disorganized not only with sending important papers home in a timely manner, but picking your child up from school at dismissal is a disaster also! I am not impressed with my daughter's pre-k teacher either. At parent teacher conference she talked to me like I was a child and needed direction parenting my child.. She is not very friendly and doesn't make it inviting for parents to help out on school functions/outings. Also, the parent involvement is atrocious! Very few of them want to help with needed materials in the classroom. Overall, unless you or your family have lived in Staunton district your whole life and are well known in the community.. I would not suggest attending this school.
