Both the elementary and middle school teachers are terrific. They truly care about the kids, are helpful, professional, challenge the students, and are invested in giving each child the best education possible. As for the parents who say their children are complaining about the discipline methods, perhaps they ought to have a conversation with their child's teacher. From experience, my children may know what they want, but they may not know what they need. My children may want to roll in 20 minutes late to sit in class, text on their phones, check Facebook, what they ate for lunch, who went to the mall Saturday, and their latest crush. They, however, NEED to be learning math, and language arts for ANY - I repeat- ANY job. I would like to see them graduate highschool , graduate college, have a successful career and be a productive member of society that chages the world we live in. Giving my kids what they want all the time won't help them achieve that, so I am grateful that the teachers set limits, challenge the children, make learning BE The new FUN, create a safe and positive atmosphere that gives my kids what they need - a rigorous education that prepares them for life.
