Many things being taught repeatedly with little expansion of ideas or curriculum. To many rules without children being taught why there are rules. Defining rules without knowing the meaning for them seems needless.
This was my daughter's first year of school with Cleaveland Elem. and I'm overly satisfied with the quality of work they demonstrate. With all the budget cuts and number of students per teacher ratio being higher than ever before, I believe Mrs. Worthington did a fantastic job at providing attention to each one of her students. My daughter looked forward to coming home and reading to me every night. Parents will have their homework cut out for them as well, which can be overwelming at times, but I would assume that's consistent with most schools. All in all I my first experience with Cleaveland was an enjoyable one and we're both looking forward to the first grade.
Cleaveland Elementary is a wonderful school. I have three children there. They all love it. The teachers and staff are great. The prinicpal, Mr. Croomes, is always avaliable. The parent involement is overwhelming.
