Vista View Elementary School1

HORRIBLE STAFF!! Some of the teachers are great, but the school nurse is NOT a respectful person!! She belittles parents when they ask questions about how she cares for the students. Our whole experience there was stressful and horrible. We had to transfer schools due to bullying, as my son was afraid to go to school. The staff agreed to "deal" with the bullying, but nothing was ever done.
I have had kids at Vista View continuously since 1998. I have been VERY involved with volunteering at school, including being an officer on the PTO Board. The teachers, kitchen staff, and custodial staff have been beyond exceptional! There are MANY teachers that go WAY above and beyond the call of duty.
My child has also had to put up with a lot of bullying. The staff seems disinterested and ineffectual. She used to love going to school, but not anymore. The teachers seem to do very little to motivate the children and teach to the lowest common denominator. Last week my 4th grader said science class covered what a pencil is: "The writing tip is lead. The other end is an eraser." They rarely have more than a page of homework, if that. My child is bored and, after many complaints, still bullied.
My daughter started 1st grade mid year and loved school untile she started at Vista View. She has been bullyed for most of that time. I have talked with teachers and the Princal. Nothing has been done about this. My daughter now hates school. I am hoping that I can find a school that my daughter likes and will be back to liking school again.
