If you expect to have communication with your kid's teacher don't count on it here. They are coming to work just to get a pay check and have no genuine interest in the welfare of the kids. I said last year my son would not return to this school but unfortunately he did and school has only been in for 3 months and they still suck. Regardless what I have to do next year he want be at this school!
I unfortunately have to concur with the previous posts. My son came from an academically challenging school and he has not learned anything new since 2nd grade. The rigor of the curriculum is just not there. Mediocrity is. While I believe the principal wishes the culture of the school to be different, the fact is that the current culture does not allow for differences in thoughts, activities, and opinions of others. The majority of the children are not friendly and welcoming. The principal may be trying to turn things around, but my child will be in private school by then. We just can't take it anymore.
