My school is wonderful because we have wonderful, caring teachers and staff. The advance program has more than prepared my oldest child for middle school and the youngest (4th grade) has had the same, if not better experience . The only things I can think of that could improve the school would be a playground and possibly more athletic programs.
Bullying is rampant and there are no real consequences to behavior problems. When given, consequences are inconsistent and unequal. One child allowed to expose themselves to another not given the consequence in handbook for that action, while another standing up for herself to a known bully given Saturday school for very first offense. Poor administration staff.
Price Accelerated Elementary is a wonderful school with many caring and highly competent teachers. The advanced program provides many opportunities for those children able to get into it. The principal is a good educator but less qualified in her administrative and communication skills. This has alienated her from some of the teachers and parents. She is however, sincere in her efforts and given time and more experience may become a good principal. The reading program is very strong and efforts are being purued to close the acheivement gap. The Math Investigations program is very weak and basic math facts are not being drilled. One of the strengths of the school is its diversity, but it is also a weakness. This is a school with great potential.
