This school has gone down hill since Debbie Mitchell retired. There is no sense of community at this school anymore. The importance of reading "everyday no matter what" has been lost. The principal does not send any type of communication home to let parents know what is going on at the school. Many good teachers have left recently, leaving me to question what type of education my son is getting from this school. My son used to love going to school, now he asks to stay home and complains about going because it is boring. He loves to learn new things and has always loved going to school, so it saddens me he has lost his love for school. He constantly complains the others kids disrupt class and the rest of the students lose out because of it. This school is failing my son.
quinsigamond elementary,my little girl has been going to this school and hates to miss a day.the teachers make the classes very interesting so they learn faster
This is the best school in Worcester. Everyday my daughter would come home from school and I would ask her 'How was your day?' She would always, always, always respond with something positive. Also, another thing I like about this school is how much effort the staff puts into making Quinsigamond Elementry School a bully-free zone. I personally think that they have exceeded this goal. I am extremely pleased to say my daughter goes here, Anyone who has their child in this school should be pleased.
The people there it seems like they are not happy. SOME good teachers and so many bad ones. Just glad to take my child out.
My child had teachers she really loved and her cleraly loved her. Some of the teachers are really dedicated and caring. The facility is new and well maintained.
I feel as though the students are not given the opportunity to delve into other pursuits with their education like history , geography , sciences , or literature .Main focus is only on simple math and reading , looking only at students as test scores and not children who require more for growth . All other subjects give a chance to expand and explore better reading skills and comprehension when put into something that excites the child . And all should start at younger ages to instill a love for education
The school principal calls parents attention for any simple reason in front of everybody like if they were her students. I suggest that she should put more attention in provinding a better quality education to the students and treating the parents as they are; adults and not kids. The school has excellent facilities and resources that are not being used at the maximum as the low stats and scores are showing.
