I have never in all my parenting years experienced such unprofessional admin and staff. My son was constantly suspended and I was never informed by staff or admin. I beg them to keep in contact with me, being that we are new to the area and school. My son has never had any problems similar to the problems he is having now. During parent teacher conference I noticed one teacher with 2 pierced ears (earrings in them) and one teacher with a punk rock hair style!! Really? Teachers are screaming and yelling how they need more parents to be involved. This is opposite; the teachers do not involve the parents. My son was suspended for fighting while changing classes. He sat in the school with a bloody lip and knots on his head for hours. No one notified me until the end of the school day. My observation, they knew I wanted answer, and they were not willing to provide me with any. Also, humiliating enough the students was moved around after placement testing; my son noticed he was in a class with 6-7 graders. I never received any letter or phone call stating why or the procedures moving forward. you"re looking for a school that does not involve parents, this school is perfect.
Students are encouraged to strive for excellence daily and the teachers work extremely hard. However, lack of parental support at home with academics and behavior can sometimes be problematic. The administration works really hard to ensure that children are recieving an education and provide support for the teachers and parents.
The best thing about this school is the Special Education Department it is above all the others. My child loves his Special Education teacher because she takes time and works with him, she showed him how to decode words and works with him daily. He even has a cute alphabet dance that he does. Great Job Lighthouse
