Mockingbird Elementary School5

My daughter attends the Optional calender which operates all year long, I have seen great progress with her learning and think this school has exceeded my expectations! I really love the new math program they implemented this year and the patience the teachers have with the students, I am very happy with this school and look forward for my other children to attend in the coming years.
This is the only school operating a year round calendar in Omaha. The test scores on standardized tests exceed, in many cases, those of students on traditional calendars. Students, parents and teacher report that they love it.
Academically the school is doing a great job in terms of homeworks etc. but then there is no awards given to the best performing student which will help as a motivation to the child. for kindergartners they should provide more time for the child to settle down with the new atmosphere. premature decision should not be taken on the performance of the child. special interest should be taken for children who are shy and do not interact with the teacher, instead of complaining to the parents.
