Some are good some are bad, some are consistent some are not. They have a lot of lack of control because they can't communicate effectively with parents b/c the principal has to approve all communication
They treat the children like robots, not like kids, some are learning academics but they are not allowed any social time after kindergarten, no recess, no speaking to each other in class, social skills will be imperative in the future, and the real world, however the principal, who should retire for numerous reasons would rather high test scores and disregard what is best for the kids.
Way too much hours each night, and if they even have 2 days off from school they have holiday homework at a very young age, not to mention since they are not allowed recess or to speak with their peers after kindergarten at school, they become very disengaged and uninterested in what would be a great learning experience if balanced.
This is my Son's first year at Green Lawn. He came from Baby Ben and its a big difference. Green Lawn doesn't have recess and they don't teach a second language. The school day is about an hour shorter. The school is very secure you cannot enter without being buzzed in. The registration process was a smooth sailing. Its a high poverty high performance school. I'm not very enthused with it yet but the school has potential
