Not a very good experience during the years my kids attended. Kids constantly disrupting the class room environment which forces teachers to stop constantly. Classroom size are severely overcrowded. No disciplinary action taken when kids misbehave at this school. If your kid is one of the smarter ones they will be pushed to help other kids that are still learning the material being taught. If your child needs help they will get it from other kids in groups instead of from the teacher or aid. To many of the teachers this is just a job and it shows, they could care less, a handful their actually care. I was told by my kids their teacher was constantly on her phone or would hide to take calls in class.
Their Teacher at the time in 2nd grade was not very effective apparently all she did was yell at the kids in the classroom which solved nothing. I hear she has been moved into the kindergarten class, probably so those kids can't let their parents know how much she yells, feel bad for those kids to have their learning experience begin with a teacher like that.
My daughter has attended this school for 5 years. The staff and teachers are professional and supportive. There are some teachers that truly stand out more than others and have been positive women in my child's life. I am truly grateful to them.
the kids are basically given the same homework weekly. It got to the point where we ran out of topics to choose from for language arts. We were only given one sheet of math homework for the whole week.
most of the teachers view their job as "just a job" their to collect a paycheck and nothing more. Kids are not disciplined for inappropriate actions, instead they are rewarded. only a handful of teachers really care for kids. class sizes are ridiculous and constant disruptions occur. So glad to get away from this school.
We have had a great experience at Cradlerock Elem. The teachers are caring and have tailored our son's education. They pulled him out for advanced classes, preparing him for GT classes. They really make an effort give a great education that is NOT a one size fits all approach.
My kids have been coming to this school for 4 years. Some teachers are great, while others seem to just be doing enough to get the children to the next grade and not pushing them to accomplish more. The principal and support staff are great and approachable.
