Amount of homework: Not enough
October 30, 2015
There is none. An appropriate amount of 10 minutes per grade level (therefore a 2nd grader gets 20 minutes ) would help prepare for middle and high schools.

Simply put, no. Without a warm and nurturing environment there is no comfort to persevere when mistakes happen or to keep at it when students call each other dumba**.

In the 4th/5th grade classroom I saw none of these being implemented. In fact, Laura told another parent that her daughter needed to get over being told to shut-up by classmates. If I told my co-worker to shut up there would rightfully be consequences!

Amount of homework: Don't know

It was great, because kids spent all day in school and then coming back home with ton of homework in my personal opinion is not fair, kids need to be kids life is not just about work work work it is about enjoying everything we do with love. And kids feel like do their home work they will do it happily. After all homework was very fair.

My daughter is enrolled in this school. Not only does it give her the individualized learning environment that kids need for their personal talents and short comings but it is teaching her how to give back and respect our planet and home! This school is bringing enrichment to my child's life that was lacking at traditional public schools.

My grand-daughter was getting bored in her previous 4th grade class, but she loves school and loves to learn. Her teacher was giving her extra work to do to help, but the decision to move her to Michael Frome was the perfect decision. My grand-daughter feels more challenged and they do lots of hands on things, and she absolutely loves this school.
