Love the English and Science Teacher. Do not like the Choir Teacher. Math teacher seems to be ok. Reading teacher not sure about him yet. Love the P.E teacher. I think my child is receiving an average education. I am hoping I am proven wrong. Too early to tell.
Too early to tell. The school has given our kids an organizer and we are to look at it and figure out what the teachers have assigned. I wish the school would have a homework journal that document the scores as they go so parents can see if their kids are averaging A, B, or C so if homework given is not enough we would know by where they stand in the class in real time. I am learning the schools system. I will have to report back.
So far what I see is kids don't want try because of red tape politics. They believe succeeding in activities in the school is an impossibility and the way the faculty handles situation seems to cause kids to give up instead of trying to attain what they want through persistance. Not a friendly place.
I have submitted a complaint with the principle and am waiting an answer to see if the school is caring. So far I do not believe they are. I will have to review my experience with the principle that is ofcourse if I hear back. I will keep you posted on the conversation and the outcome.
I feel the school is psychologically cruel to kids and parents are treated as an annoyance. I think kids are afraid of the warden type atmosphere so I am not sure how honest students are under these circumstances. Too early to tell having only just started with this school. I will update my review as time allows for me to observe the behavior. So far I am not having a good experience.
So far I hate this school. It is run like a prison. I tried to have an open mind about the reasons behind why they run the school the way they do for safety etc. My daughter in her first day of school cried. The admin with the exception of one person is horrible. I emailed the principle of a complaint I have and am waiting to hear back. I really hate this school with a passion. Oh how I wish my daughter could experience a non prison like school..just awful. I am hoping our experience gets better but based on the reviews doesn't seem likely.
Absolutely awful! my son went from getting A's, B's and C's, to D's and F's in a matter of weeks of starting at this school. My son is still in the process of learning English, but teachers have no understanding, sensitivity, or thoughtfulness with regards to this. Everything is on the student, no responsibility for the grades is taken by the teachers. We got a letter inviting my son to after-class math tuition. We sent my son on many occasions as Math is his weak area. He informed us that the "teacher" just told the students to do their homework. No tutoring was given. When I asked about this at a parent-teacher meeting, the "teacher" said it might be that there were too many students. My wife and I were also yelled at in that meeting and the counselor had to tell the teacher to stop. The "lady" who works in Registration scowls and snarls at people, treats the students like dirt, and should never be working with the public. My son doesn't like school anymore, and that's sad because he was so optimistic about moving to the US. He is a US citizen but was raised abroad. This school is a joke! Pity I can't give it a zero, or minus 15!
I would give this school a 0 if I could. My daughter has attended 2 years at this school both 6th and 7th grade. She went from being an honor gate student to a D-F student. The bullying is out of control. I moved to Summerlin to have my daughter attend a better school little to my dismay it has become the worst school she could have ever attended. The teachers are given key tools parent link and Edmodo only a few participate in it and are not on the same page with it. I found Edmodo to be the best tool its a shame only 2 teachers used it in the 2 years she went their. It should be mandatory all teachers to be on the same page. If I wanted to meet with a single teacher I had to have all teachers and a counselor present this makes you feel intimidated. Sports and activities were limited and based on favoritism. I am no longer allowing my daughter to go to this school she will be doing online school because of the poor quality teaching ethics as well as bullying.
This school has been outstanding. The teachers respond via Parentlink and set up meetings if you request them. Most parents who complain, don't get involved or look at school as a babysitter. If you hold your kids to standards (A is an A, B is a C, C is a F in our house), the teachers and administration will help you with the discipline. I have found them all to be fair and willing to help. Of course meetings are before and after school. Is it always convenient? No. As a parent it is my responsibility to take part in my kids education. Most of the problems I've seen are from kids who's parents stand up for their child's bad behavior. This school has gone from a 3 star to a 5 star school and I'm happy to say that it's due to the accountability with the kids and the parents. Fact is if you care about your kids education and it is a priority, you will love Fertitta! If you value your personal time and don't like making a commitment to your child's education, you will probably not like the accountability and say that things are "unfair". As I was taught growing up, "Life is not obligated to be fair, but opportunity is." There are plenty of opportunities at Fertitta!
