If you want your child to bullied, then send them to Tenniswood elementary. My son was bullied on the bus, so I put him in sacc. Today my thrid grader was pinned down by 3 fifth graders and the principal sends me a note saying he will be suspended. There is a month left of school and I am switching.
I love Tenniswood Elementary... My husband & I went there. We were in the same Kindergarten class! Now I am happy to share the school with my children. I love the Teachers, the Principal... Overall, Love it..
I absolutely despise Tenniswood. The class sizes are unacceptable. If your child is disruptive to the class in anyway the teachers and I do mean all of the teachers, label your child ADHD and want them medicated. Complain to the principal and she's right there singing the praises of medication and doesn't care whether or not ADHD is the real issue. Bullies are not handled appropriately and I just love the early dismissal every Wednesday.
My child has attended Tenniswood for a few years, I am very disappointed with the way the principle handles issues that may arise. I wish the staff would be more helpful in giving my son the direction he needs. He does not like this school and cries everyday about going to school. My sons admiration for overall learning has dropped considerably. He will definately not be returnig next year.
My children have been attending Tenniswood for 5 years. Pro's---The teachers with a couple of exceptions wonderful !! The new construction and remodeling inside and out are great!! High parent involvement. Cons---Class sizes are too big, which puts both teachers and students at a huge disadvantage (30 kids on avg). It has become overwhelmingly obvious that Image and the mighty dollar are far more important to the principle than the actual success of the children. There are many clicks among the staff that have yet to be broken up. I find not enough help offered to children who really need it..whether it be socially or academically. Over all a great school...Needs new leadership!!
My children have attended Tenniswood for the past 3 years. The teachers are excellent as is the learning environment. My children love to go to school everyday and the improvements to the school make them even more excited about going. The only thing I am not impressed with is the principal, she needs to focus more on helping the children and less on the financial cost for proper testing and help to the children succeed.
