Just wanted to share my experience with this school. My child is in a special education class and has been cared for well from his teachers and staff. At times he is quite a handful and regardless of his behaviors or issues he has been handeled by the staff with the utmost care and consideration during those times. I have seen kids comming into the school in the morning very happy to be there. I love the open door policy and have always been welcomed and greated warmly anytime I have been there. I see that the faculty works very hard to keep the kids positive and rewards them for their efforts. We have had a wonderful experience so far.
I went to this school as a child and i remember it clearly and feel that i have learned a lot from the teachers i had there and appreciate everything they did for me, even though i did not appreciate it at the time. I feel this school prepared me the most for the future as it had me ready for most of everything that i would encounter in middle school as a student., academically. Would recommend the school, but not the JCPS overlords that get a say in what the school does. The principal is caring and most of the teachers are as well.
I find some of the teachers to be outstanding and caring yet others that are there because it is their job. I guess you can probably say that for all schools. I'm not sure how much leadership and family atmosphere the principal displays.
Although I like the extra curricular activities that are provided by this school I am finding that academics and challenging those students above and beyond is a problem with this school, although not ever teacher. Also, it is my opinion that there is a lack of trust among staff and parents is somewhat alarming.
My son has gone to this school for two years now. I also attended this school as a child i love it but we are having mager problems with the bus. My son is being picked on by a child and has happened more than once. I plan on taking action in the morning and i hope all goes well.
