My middle child in the 1st grade had 6 different teachers!! I asked the school & superintendent to please not put him in a class for his 2nd grade year that there might be a potential for the teacher to retire or take a leave. What do they do? He has 2 different teachers that year!!! My child does not adapt to change very well and does have ADD!! They are not educated enough on ADD to teach children with that diagnosis!! I have had multiple conversations with the board and the school with no help!! So my youngest son goes to school and again I asked please don't put him in a room where there is a potential retirement etc. Guess what?? His teacher retires at Christmas in 1st grade! Kindergarten teacher was fired at Christmas time and he had 3 different subs!! I know that things come up and you need to be off etc. But when a child has 6 different teachers in 1 year there is a problem!!! Disappointed and will be glad when my youngest son gets out of that school!! Granite there are some great teachers but most are there for retirement!!
My child had a TERRIBLE experience here. He was here from K-3rd and we actually moved in order for him to have a better 4th grade experience in a new school. In 4 years, he only had one teacher that actually helped him, everyone else was very negative and unmotivated to help him. I urge you to choose another school if your child has special needs (gifted, ADHD, developmental delays, etc.). I wish that we would've moved him sooner.
I am pleased with this school. My son just started Kindergarten and he loves it. I am a stay at home mother and I thought he would be a little hesitant about this whole change of routein but it seems that is exactly what he was looking for. We have an outstanding teacher that keeps me informed about the daily activities and things to come. I am extremely happy!!
There is a really a lot of good teachers in this school system that challages kids to do more then play. I really do like the principal and the asstiants principal they really care about what going on in this school system. They keep their eyes and ears both open to see what all is going on so we as parents do not have to worry about what is going on in the school system. I believe that of good people that will go out of their way to help their students in everything they are doing.I love this school.
