This is not necessarily a review of the school, but more of an inquisition. What are these children doing all day? I live right next to this school, and I hear kids playing outside ALL DAY LONG. Literally ALL DAY. I've called it the recess school. I am sure that I don't know the logistics of how the school works, but I am just curious. Being that the school is in a residential area, it is just a little bit frustrating to be woken up by screaming kids, have my baby woken up by screaming kids, and cook dinner to the sound of screaming kids.
Wonderful, small K1-5 in a quiet, safe residential neighborhood. Dedicated principal and teachers, diverse student population and a warm welcoming atmosphere. No disciplinary problems and students throughout the grades interact well-no bullying. Actively working to create stronger academic performance and local partnerships. Very strong parent involvement. A great little urban school!
Although the teachers, principal, and staff are very accommodating and welcoming, the academics are just not where they should be taking the experience and longevity of the faculty into account. It is a small school and I think they should be making more of a difference academically given the size and experience. If something is not working, maybe it is time to make a change.
This is a little gem of a school hidden in a residential neighborhood in Dorchester, MA. The classes are small, the teachers excellent and the administrative staff is beyond compare. The principal knows each child's name and home situation, and is intimately involved in every aspect of the school's function. My son loves it there. The only drawback is that it only goes up to the 5th grade!
