Georgetown is a nice town to raise a family but the schools leave a lot to be desired. We were very disappointed with how poorly they were run. There was a huge lack of supervision. The school apparently monitors the feedback on this site so without a doubt whenever there is a negative comment, shortly thereafter some "parent" will post a five start review.
We moved to Georgetown because we thought the town had great schools. What a huge disappointment. Right from the start, our children were constantly being bullied. The bullying continued non-stop in the classroom, at lunch, during recess, on the school bus and during gym. The teachers, principals and superintendent refused to acknowledge it as bullying and failed to take proper action to make it stop. This school system is seriously lacking in discipline. We ended up taking our children out of this school system for their own safety.
Before enrolling your children in this school system inquire about their declining enrollment and why so many seats are now available for school choice. Ask them for an exact number of children who have transferred OUT of the school in the past five years. Also inquire about the high turn-over in their staff and how they handle bullying because they do not adhere to what is written in their own school handbook. Ask them why their budget for fiscal year 2016 is taking funding away from school security, the nurse and lunch room supervision, textbooks and instructional computers? For your child’s sake – do your research before enrolling them in Georgetown schools.
My son is about to complete the 2nd grade, and I can't say enough about all of his teachers. They are all extremely caring and dedicated professionals. We can tell that they genuinely care about our son and go the extra mile to help him be more successful.
I give this school an A+. My feeling on the staff is that they are wonderful caring people and are concerned about the children. Mrs. Arsanault the Principal is outstanding. She is a wonderful asset to the Georgeton School System. The children has loads of respect for her and you don't usually see that in a school.The programs they have are top notch and above and beyond other schools.Parent involvement is above normal I personally see parents at the Penn Brook School by the dozens.They encourage parent involvement and so do I. There afterschool programs are also wonderful and are great for the children who need extra help with there homework. I recommend Homework Club for all.
