My son is dyslexic and they have refused him special education services. His teachers have been at a loss on how to help him. His teacher from last year said in all her years of teaching she has never seen a child like him. He has developed an anxiety disorder from the stress of not being able to read. The administration does not want to tackle his learning issue. They agreed to give him a 504 plan but still refuse him special ed services. He has to take a reading standardized test this spring that will determine whether he can go to the next grade. I don't think that is fair to him and will be upset if he does not pass and they want to hold him back. He can't read at the level of his peers. He is not getting the help he needs unless his teacher takes extra time, that she may not have to help him. He does do some intervention programs at the school that do not seem to be helping. I have had to put him in a program designed for dyslexic students at my own cost.
Great school, impressed with the academics and the manner in which all things are handled.
I think this school is a good public school. Now granted this is the only school my son has attended so I have little to compare with. I've read posts where people say its to clickish and people are snobby. I think that with any small town there will be gossip and clicks. Is ours any worse or any better??? I don't know. My son loves going to school and the teachers seem to care about the kids and if they do well. I think that just so long as you don't get involved in the town gossip and clicks it will be okay. My son is in some sports and participates in after school activities. We don't socialize with alot of the families not because we don't want to but because they are clickish. But we are happy and love our small town life.
I love our school! It is amazing. It has great academics and athletics. The teachers are sooo nice.=]
