I heard positive info regarding this school. My child attended Cascades, then Frost and finally Sharp Park. These schools, all 3 of them, offer an overabundance of bullies. No teacher wants to get involved or discipline the bullies. They turn a blind eye and/or place blame on the weaker species who demonstrate they are unable to defend themselves. The majority of the population at either of these schools is actually the minority who contribute to the bullying significantly. There is definitely a racial tension issue.

When we enrolled my child in this school, I had heard nothing but good things. The first day we dropped her off I noticed hoards of security issues, which the principal explained were due to it being the first day of school. Chalk that up to overprotectiveness. Security issues continued, such as giving my child to family members who had never picked her up before and were not asked for I.D., adults wandering the school halls that didn't belong, and open perimiter doors. We then learned that my child's Kindergarten teacher has no control over her class and continually yells at her students. The last straw was when my wife witnessed one of my child's classmates being physically mistreated by the schools secretary in the school office (locking his wrists in one of her hands and pulling him around behind her), followed by the principal yelling at him so that my wife could hear it through the closed office door. The superintendant's investigation was useless, determining that the secretary was put in an impossible situation and the principal's reputation superceded this accusation. Needless to say neither of my children will be attending this school next year.

Caring and encouraging teachers, supportive staff, clean and well-maintained facility with a new library addition this year. Their international baccalaureate program fosters critical thinking - which I LOVE. They start teaching foreign language in kindergarten.

I love having my children attend Sharp Park. Not only are they learning the core academics, but the I.B. Curriculum offers them a chance to learn how to become productive members of society. The school offers a warm feeling the minute you walk in the door.

We moved here from a smaller school district and were not sure what to expect. What a blessing to find such a great school. The principle to social workers, specialty teachers and classroom teachers are so intune to the needs of each child. They were quick to help us in evaluating our grandson to see what help was needed personally for him. I have never seen such a caring staff and how organized and again intune they are. Thank you all for help in all you have done for our family and grandson. I can't praise this school enough!

Sharp Park Acadmey is a great school for your preschool through third grade child. They focus on the core subjects as well as including German in their curriculum. Sharp Park is a small school with lot of perks. The teachers are very caring and giving. Parents have the ability to be involved both in the classroom and on the PTO. Besides German, students have PE, art, and computers.
