Teacher effectiveness: Neutral


- a
Some yes, others no. Depends on the grade level and department.

Don't take the time to read between the lines. Just run!

This school could have been great. Our son has been a student at Adelson since he was 3 years old. The preschool was an amazing experience....1st and 2nd grade, not so much. The new administration has no idea what they are doing or how to handle any negative feedback. Their bullying policy isn't even close to being followed and when you confront them on it, they blow you off. For $18,000 / year there are many other options for kids. We have seen many, many families flee this school over the last 2 years and now we are one of them. Run, don't walk from this school.

Handles bullying effectively: Strongly disagree


- a
They have a great "written policy", but that's all it is, words. They DO NOT do anything to deter or deal with any type of bullying. They act as if it's impossible to be going on in their school. My son asks everyday when school is over..He's tired of having to deal with the ineptitude of administration in dealing with any sort of issue. His class has 15 kids, so it's not like he's got a lot of choices of kids to play with.

Supports LD students: Neutral


- a
I have no experience with this statement.


Effective school leaders: Strongly disagree


- a
The old leadership was great. They cared about the kids, they cared about the teachers and they cared about issues with the kids. The old leadership, either retired or was let go to bring in a new "leader" that supposedly had experience in turning schools around. The head of the school is completely unknown to 99% of the parents and the kids. She has zero daily interaction with the school...the old head of the school was always involved with the day to day operation and getting to know the families. Many other parents state this as being one of the top reasons they are not returning next year.

Develops character: Strongly disagree


- a
Highly disagree with this statement. They do an ok job on the Jewish side of things, but fail miserably when it comes to working with the interpersonal skills and dynamics of the kids. As stated before they do nothing to curb the kids from hitting or bullying. And it's even worse if it involves a teacher's child.

Teacher effectiveness: Neutral


- a
This is the luck of the draw type of situation. From one year to the next great teachers leave or don't have their contracts renewed. In the middle of the year, teachers leave and the class suffers. We have witnessed this 2 or 3 times...There are good caring teachers, but they may not be back from year to year


Amount of homework: Neutral


- a
The level of homework for my son has been fine..

Handles bullying effectively: Neutral


- a
In our experiences, there were cliques on the playground. Jewish values were taught well, but still many gaps were left and opportunities for bullying.
