During our short time at this school, we had a very bad experience with the teachers and principal. Our child started mid year due to a move and our impression was that the teacher was very hard on her from day one. We got negative feedback on the very first day and this is kindergarten! Our child was later diagnosed with a receptive language delay but her teacher never highlighted this issue but instead dealt with her behavior and learning difficulties by using increasing levels of punishment such as taking away part of her recess. The principal stood by the teacher and mentioned that she had too many students to provide much time to our child. We transferred our child out and are very happy at our new school.
This is our second year at Sacajawea Elementary. My family has found great results from the teachers, principal and educational requirements. All the teachers are helpful and friendly. Mrs. Smith (principal) keeps a tight ship. My children are at the top of their classes and only have positive things to say about friends, teachers and school work. The school lunches aren't very impressive. I would recommend taking a packed lunch!
We have had 4 children attend Sacajawea and have been extremely impressed with the teaching staff, principal and opportunities our children have had. We have one special needs and two gifted children and the teachers have adapted to all their unique needs. We are sad to leave this school as our children have enjoyed it immensely.
