My child was once enrolled in Ft Foote after coming from a private school setting. This was the worst mistake I could have made! Out of 5 days in a week I cried at least 3.5 because of the demeanor in which my child (who was deemed gifted) was treated. I decided to put my child in Fort Foote because of them having a 'Blue Ribbon Status'...boy was that a hoot! To my surprise, this status was granted under a very older administration---current administration is doing a SAD job of living up to these standards. I met with the Principal, VP, etc., in regards to being pulled out and placed in another grade level in regards to Reading/Language Arts...and even worse mistake as that teacher proved to not be worth the disruption of my child changing classes. Finally after much turmoil, I enrolled my child back in private school.
I have a child in second grade and the Head start program and they are doing very well in the Fort Foote and think the teachers really do care about the children and the needs.
It saddens me as a parent whom once thought highly of Fort Foote and the administration, to say that I am extremely disappointed in the way our children's educational needs are not being met. My child was a honor student and is failing now due to the lack of concern not only from our principal, but her teacher as well. I brought my concerns through many channels and as of January and my child is still in the same predicament. I have lost all hope and confidence in our school system not to mention Fort Foote.
I have a first grader at this school and I must say that the teachers are wonderful,helpful and indeed genuine. The only problem I have with the school is the principal. I have seen her speaking disrespectfully to students! I have decided to remove my son from this kind of environment after this school year. Such a shame, because the academic program and the teachers are so great.
I have a child in pre-k and in k. My husband and I are very pleased with the school and genuine hearts of the people in it. The children are eager to learn and the teachers are enthusiastic. Events may seems a bit chaotic & unorganized but all in all a very caring bunch.
Excellent staff, excellent administration. Academic programs rate very high, as does parental ivolvement. Music and art exist. They start seriously in 5th grade.
