Tracey's it is a great school. The teachers are very caring and the school keeps adding educational programs for the kids. My son has been there since 3rd grade and he loves the school. The teachers reward good behavior and participation which keeps the children motivated to learn.
I heard great things about Anne Arundel County Public Schools and it is why we chose a home in the county. Traceys has been a huge disappointment. The school lacks leadership and doesn't seem to care if the children excel. This is a school that seems perfectly pleased to be mediocre. It is a terrible shame and a waste and hurts the children most of all.
This school is steadily going downhill. We have the best teachers but with out leadership there's little hope for Tracey's. Our programs are being eliminated, the morale is low, and the administration's apathy is discouraging. Lack of communication is one of the biggest problems and my hope is that the leadership is replaced next year by a professional who does more than go through the motions.
I actually used this school as a basis for the apartment my son and I moved into; however, I did not know what happened at his school until it was too late. My son ended up in a hospital and is now being evaluated for PTSD because the staff restrained him so much in the nine days he attended Tracey's Elm. Now he is attending somewhere else and I am trying to show him daddy will protecting him at all costs.
