I am very sad to say that despite reading the reviews I chose this school and I regret it. I should have taken my child to her homeschool. The teachers do a pretty mediocre job and lack interest in teaching. The homework system and parent communication is not very good. They have some extracurricular clubs, thats one good thing. I have tried talking to the teacher and I don't think she cares. I read the most recent review and it almost sounds like something the school will say. If you don't like it why are you here. Unfortunately as a parent its hard to uproot a child and "go somewhere else" once the school year has started. I am surprised that the reviewer thinks that reviews are to bring a school down . Its not.. it is one parent trying to help another one out to make a good decision. I might move my child after this year but unfortunately we are stuck as of now.
I'm surprised to see that people wrote ineffective. If they feel that way, they should leave. Why try to bring down a school that you don't want to be a part of?!?!? Go somewhere else! Try communicating and building relationships with the teachers and understand why your child is struggling or not being challenged. And again if you cant resolve it...
The teachers are excellent! They challenge kids and they have the scores to show it.
In come grades, it's just right. In other grades not enough. For instance, in elementary, my since my daughter was in 2nd grade, she hadn't gotten enough. As a middle schooler, it's just right. In kindergarten it's ALOT! But it's manageable.
The teachers are amazing! I love that they give personal attention to each child and have creative learning activities. I am THANKFUL that my child got into Canton. I love the new principal. She is friendly and approachable. I had a problem earlier this year with my child and she worked with me and the dean to resolve the problem. The parent wasn't helpful, but the school was.
They review moral focus virtues every day and the teachers teach them in class! I love coming to morning assembly and seeing the kids perform and the staff share their fun ways to teach. My son told me one time in the car that I was not showing integrity because I didn't stop at a stop sign!!! I said how do you know what that is? he said, "It's doing the right thing even when no one is looking." I was blown away!!! I love the moral focus and I can see my son showing behaviors.
Teacher turn over is high, Teachers do not know how to challenge kids academically. The kindergarten teachers are very good. Some first grade teachers are good. Its down hill from there. If your child needs a higher level education this is not he place for you.
I am unhappy with the curriculum and management. There is an increased focus in trying to get more money from families. The main problem with the school in there is no consistency in teacher standards. If your child gets a good teacher then he or she will excel. They prefer cookie cutter kids and do not have much tolerance for other kids. Some teachers have the patience and the willingness to help all kids while others could care less . Some families know who the good teachers are and request those teachers for their kids. You may be stuck with a bad teacher if you do not have inside information. Bullying is a major problem starting in kindergarten. Teachers and administration do turn a blind eye to most cases. No action is taken for verbal bullying. My child also picked up derogatory words from the playground from other kids as early as 1st grade which was a bit of a shock for me. My satisfaction with the school has decreased over the years.
