Schorr USED to be good, at least for kinder and first grade. I agree with the bullying, whether it be from students or even teachers, nothing will be done. Principal Brown is not very approachable, does not seem to care when there is an issue within the classroom, Safekey people do NOT help with homework, they look like they're just there to babysit, it's no wonder CCSD system sucks. You are better off moving to an area where schools have better ratings or getting into a charter/private school if possible.
Teachers are great but without good management backing them they can only do so much! Notice how old these reviews are! Don't know what happened it the past few years but Principal Brown is horrible, rude and does not care about children! My child's teacher told me that she suggested my son has a learning disability and asked for the Principal's help to get him an IEP plan and be tested. She said the Principal told her if the parents aren't complaining then No. Wow! The teacher had to tell me on the side that I should seek help outside of the school. Sad! Spoke to the Principal herself in person and she was very rude and told me there was nothing she could do about my son falling behind in class.
Reported bullying many times and only got a "It's not that big of a deal!" from the Principal in my parent meeting. If you don't want your kids to be bullied or worse molested by other kids, DO NOT TAKE THEM HERE! The school's approach is when it's between kids there is nothing they can do about it.
So far we have really enjoyed Schorr. My son had Mrs. Carino in K and Mrs. Jacobs in 1st, both great, compassionate teachers that challenged the kids. This school has a very open door policy for volunteering, meeting with teachers etc. Mrs. Cortney (Librian) started a reading program for the 1st grade last year based on parent volunteers coming in and working one on one with the kids. I thought it was a great program; however, unfortunatly there were not very many parents that volunteered to do this. If you want to know what is going on in your childs school I would highly recommend helping out in the classroom, PTA etc. You won't/don't know until to you go!
I love this school! The teachers and staff are great! They always seem to have something fun going on for the kids. Two of my children have gone here, and my youngest son will be starting kindergarten here this year. I wouldn't send him anywhere else!
