Our child was bullied in class by his substitute teacher, bullied on the bus and bullied on the playground. Where is the integrity, compassion and respect taught when this was happening everyday?
Our first grader came home with a black eye and hand marks around his neck. And the "guidance counselor" decided to discuss this in the lobby while other parents, teachers and students were present.
After being told that our child was having "learning difficulties", we were notified that they would be coming up with an incentive plan. Well, we would not complete the plan and still get a reward.
All the while, still unable to meet with the principal.
Homework was always the same sheet of paper that had been done multiple times in school that day.
We would receive homework with no directions and do our best to figure it out (no way to directly contact the teacher with questions). Once done, we had received a few pieces back with all of them marked wrong and the teacher did not explain how to attain the correct answer.
The display of disrespect toward a parent from teacher and principal was entirely unacceptable. We pulled our child out before the end of first semester due to copious dissatisfied experiences from teachers and principal.
I have all of my three kids in this school and I must say that I have never felt anything but safe and well taken care of. My kids have never wanted to miss school and they look forward to going to school every day. The teachers are caring and responsive to all the emails I have sent. The new building is beautiful and is located in a very nice neighborhood.
This school has the best teachers for 4 and 5 grade. They are serious about teaching and don't make stupid math mistakes. I was not impressed with school at the beginning but now I feel that they give real impression of kids knowledge and I think it is the most important aspect of successful learning. They do not praise everybody for everything but ask for serious work to deserve a praise. They give foundation for lifetime learning.
