The Special Ed population is taking over. Our regular ed students are lost. They are made to keep quiet and get along with the special needs students regardless. They have no voice. Where are the needs of our neighborhood regular ed students being met. Poor leadership. The PE teacher runs the school. She is a bully.
The school is good for the kids and for the most part the teachers are experienced at handling all sorts of issues that arise. This year the principal reportedly has overreacted to several incidents involving students, but overall she is likely doing what the "front office" tells her to do.
Great teachers here, but clearly AACPS has an agenda for the administration. The principal/VP turnover is ridiculous and many parents feel this is the county's way of implementing sweeping changes in the school.
My daughter is in Kindergarten and has had an absolute blast her first year of learning. She enjoys school, has made friends, and can't wait to come home and tell me about her day. The school seems very close knit and has done a pretty good job with communicating events and anything specific that I need to know about my child. I like that they utilize Class Dojo to keep me in the loop about behavior or updates about her classroom. Crossing my fingers that her experience in 1st grade will be just as positive!
