My daughter is in kindergarten at this school and I love her teacher and so does my child but as for the administration at the school there is a disconnect. Everything seems unorganized and the secretary that sits at the first desk is extremely rude, there have been times when I've walked into the office and she doesn't acknowledge that I'm there and when I ask a question she acts as if me being there is a burden to her.
I have three kids attending this school, compare to other kids in the family around the same age in other schools, they are by far more advanced in almost every subject, the staff is courteous, dedicated and very professional, they emphasize respect and scholastic achievement A good number of the students are underprivileged and teachers go the extra mile to make sure they are not left behind. They are also tough on mischievous students and they do not tolerate bullying. The school is clean and well kept.
Shriver celebrates diversity in the student body, works to build community among parents and families, and emphasizes respect for each one involved in the school. As a volunteer, I see beautifully displayed student work and great emphasis on scholastic achievement and growth. The facility is a cheerful place to be for all who enter. The motto 'Whatever it takes!' sums up the spirit of a staff that loves teaching, brings strong academic backgrounds to their tasks, and demonstrates all day long how very much they care for the children entrusted to them. Parents, many new to this country, are encouraged to contribute their skilss to helping the students and school.
