I love the office workers , very helpful . How ever my niece birthday is coming up and it was told to her mother that she couldn't provide the class with pizza minus the party , simply because my niece doesn't eat sweets . We we're told they have holiday parties only . As if my nieces birthday isn't special enough ? I was proud that my niece was opening up due to her bein overly shy , but when I learned of the unfortunate strict rules from the New principal I was enraged . I've never in life heard of such a rule , and the excuse and the authority that she's giving out seems to be more of a power trip .
Bad school my son was bullied there and was afraid to go to school. Asked the principal to change him classes since he was terrified to go and refused to do it. She seems to promote bullying since she said he needs to be strong BS!!
The teachers are caring enough, but they don't seem to be organized enough, or something. Also the violence among the kids is rediculous! My son is in the nurse's everyday for something. It always happens during recess. My son says that the monitors don't pay much attention.
My children have attended this school for two years now and I must say I love the staff. We feel welcomed because the office staff know my self and husband as well as my children by our name. The last school they attended none of the staff knew our names like that. Thats impressive! The classrooms are set up so kids want to go in and learn. I like the teachers there alot, they communicate with you regarding your childs progress. They take time to work with you and the kids. I've never seen a principal appear to be so involved with the kids as Mr. Wingett and my kids are always proud when they talk of him. The kids look forward to receiving the little incentives they can earn for good behavior and completing assignments. I would recommend this school to anyone who wants 'the small town like hospitality ' you feel from this school.
