Three Principals in 2016. High Staff turn over. High Staff absences. High SPED classification in male students of color at Kindergarten. Limited homework. Low classroom computer tech. Low testing preparation. Small school with huge class size. Most kids leave by Grade 2. No structured sports. No greenery; garden or green play space.
This school is wonderful! My daughter has been here since first grade and we loved it. Unfortunately due to a divorce and my having to move, yesterday was her last day of third grade But I would have loved to keep her there until 5th grade. She did extremely well. I have to disagree with the previous poster stating black kids shouldn't go here. My daughter is black and was an honor roll student. The classes are small and the school community itself is amazing! if you get the opportunity to send your child to this special little school do it!
The field trips and events that this money will support are integral in exposing students to various facets of life and society to help develop their knowledge and understanding of the world and their part in making it the best it can be.
