my son is in kidnergardern this year and i don't like the school at all. I think that the two hours that they do go to school they should be learning more instead of coloring and putting puzzles together. these are things i beleive the children can do at home. I've had a meeting with the principal and for the week the problem was handled, but after that everything went back to the way things were. my son loved preschool and he now hates school because of this year at aggies roberts. they are not a good school. if they were, they would put more time and energy into the children!!!
I have a son who started 6th grade this year and he was enrolled in Aggie Roberts since Kindergarten. The first few years there he was learning his teachers communicated well. Then somewhere around 3rd grade he quit doing the homework he did not want to do because he found out that he would advance to the next grade without it. At his age he cannot make a complete sentence or write a well written paragraph. I would think in 3 years of him not completing all of his assinments someone somewhere would have told me, I went to the parent teacher conferences and was not made aware of the problems. I have two other children in 1st grade at this school and hope they will learn something more than my older son.
The school principal has always been very good to my 2 children. They've attended since 2001 and have loved it! I've written a letter to her this year, and she called me the same day to address my questions. She's was a big help! The teachers are great. Some in the past have come across a little 'too stern' but I guess that was okay (better than too easy on the kids). We've since moved to another area in Las Vegas, and have gotten a zone exemption to keep them at this school. I highly recommend sending your children there. They truly love the kids and welcome the parents participation!
Our son's special needs teacher had him running outside in 104 degree heat when his IEP said he could not be outside after 80-90 degrees because it causes him to have seizures. He had seizures everyday until we moved him to a different school. We also recived no help or support from the principal in getting him his necessary devices in the classroom for him to learn effectively. All in all we have found clark county school district and mainly the southeast region to be the worst for special needs. We will be leaving nevada all together in the summer of 2005. Our son attended for the 2003-2004 school season.
I agree with the last post 100%. Since the arrival of the new principal, Ms. Tully, our school has become very political. Within a couple of months after her arrival, many of the outstanding teachers and staff who had worked at Aggie Roberts since opening began putting in transfers to other schools. Out of about 80 Teachers and staff you can now count on one hand the ones that remain. Her motto seems to be 'My way or the Highway.' Regardless of what the parents, teachers or students concerns are. Whether it be an issue within the classroom between children or proposing a different solution or way of doing something, the moment your opinion differs from hers, she just shuts you out. Our school has went from being a wonderful inviting environment to you are an inconvenience from the moment you walk in the door.
A few teachers seem indifferent to problems going on in their classroom and I think the newest principal tends to avoid parents and confrontation when a child is having problems with other children or teachers unless a parent is extremely insistent to meet with her and not the vice principal. Also, papers were sent home with children regarding a meeting with parents and the new changes for upcoming fifth grader and fourth graders the day of the meeting which parents were unable to attend because it was very early evening and they did not receive these until after the meeting had taken place that day. There are many papers that come home with children for parents to be made aware of important functions and meeting after the date of function and I am told by other teachers that at times this can be on purpose. Menus are never sent home with the children until the first Friday after the first of the month, so parents do not always know what is going on. I feel this principal is very sloppy about keeping parents informed of regular daily items and important meeting and it makes it difficult for us to attend.
