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.
Incompetent teachers. Bullying is a huge problem both verbal and physical. Verbal bullying is ignored. Kids use all kinds of bad words and no body checks them on it. Physical bullying is addressed if the student complains. But actions are not taken to prevent it from happening again. Poor teachers. They only care about a few students. If you complain to the Dean or principal they will tell you what you want to hear while you are there but then teachers actions do not change. the main reason for me to send my child to this school is for discipline but this school is terrible at both academics and moral focus.This school has had 3 principals in the last 6 years. I am taking my child to Workman elementary.
