Burtonsville Elementary School 4

My daughter has attended Burtonsville since kindergarten and she is doing very well. Her teachers are engaged and there is constant communication. She gets homework on a daily bases. Couldn't ask for a better school.

This is such an awful school. There is no communication between parents and teachers. Every teacher teaches in different way. I have reached out several times to the teacher and the principal and have been assured that they will help me help my child, but they always FAIL. The students are so not disciplined. The teachers aide that watch the kids during lunch have play favoritism and give their favorite students basket balls , other kids are left on their own. My son was pushed by another student and hit his head and told the aide and he was ignored. Through out the year his teacher only had negative comments about my son, I approached her on giving me constructive criticism so I can help him and to point to resources so I could help my son. She never followed thru. The principal is never available . She is only business oriented and does not care about students. Like someone else mentioned, bad kids get all the attention and kids like my son who are quiet and follow rules are ignored. I wish they change the principal and teachers. This is very poorly managed school

They give homework once a week. I don't know what they are teaching, only find out when my son brings home worksheets that are in correct / incomplete and he says he didn't understand the concept and when he asked his teacher she ignores him

How do kids develop respect if kids are using curse words on play grounds and kids are pushed and no one disciplines the bad kids?

My sons teacher always has to criticize his work, she never gives suggestion on how to improve his grades. I had to come up with suggestion and she agreed to help and she never followed thru. The vice principal took almost 2 weeks to resolve one issue.

Like I mentioned in my review, school aides have favorites that get treated well and other students have to just follow those privileged students and hope they will get to play basketball. School lunch time, kids who are quiet and eat lunch get ignored and kids that break rules are closely watched. The days when the bad kids are well behaved they get rewarded and good kids are ignored. I have witnessed this first hand, I have volunteered and see this done all the time

Great teachers, but I don't think they had the resources to develop every child so the ones who are smart and well behaved get ignored.
