Matthew A. Henson Elementary School 4

My child has attended this school for 2 years. She has excelled in reading, being moved to a higher class to continue to challenge her. Also, she has improved in math and anytime there was an issue with my child I was notified by the principal. The school is always open if I need to visit to check on my child and the staff all seem competent and polite. So far I am satisfied with the performance of this school. They do have a PTA who along with the principal is always willing to help the families of students in any way they can. They also offer assistance with getting your child to and from school if you are too sick to take them yourself! They offer awards, certificates, and other incentives to encourage the students to work hard.

I think some are more effective than others, but I don't have any complaints. I can see improvement in my child.

Amount of homework: Just right

I thinks it's good, my child gets homework everyday except Friday. It gives her a chance to review what she has learned in school but isn't so much that she feels overwhelmed.

My daughter always tells me that her teacher says, "if you don't get it right the first time then try and try again."

My child always comes home telling me about what she learned in school that day and it seems to me that she is learning to be honest, work hard, treat other students with respect, and to take pride in herself and her school.

My child was learning a lot in her class until I found out that she is being harassed by other kids and nothing has been done. This was not acceptable to me so I took my child out of that school.

i am appalled at the quality of the school as a while . There is very poor communication, preparation, and education.

Needs more parent involment, that's all. If parents would concider being more involved and show that they care, the children would improve. The teachers are there, they just need to know you and how your child best learn.

Matthew Henson Elementary School provides students with an adequate education. It is my opionion that it could do a much better job with administrators who are more concerned about student achievement. The lead administrator does not respond to parents nor students.
