The biggest downfall with this school is the lack of communication with the parents and the amount of bullying and that it does not get addressed. My son went from a recommendation to be tested for gifted and talented from his prior school, and failed miserably the next year with his teacher. His test scores were so high that he was allowed to pass and this year has A's and B's. Which leads me to think that some of the teachers need to be replaced, as he did badly with a teacher who had been there a long time and really doesn't seem to like her job anymore. There has been so many issues with my son getting picked on that I have to inform the principal about it, as he knows nothing. The supervision on the playground is severly lacking, and the duty teacher out there has outwardly expressed that he does not like my son. The staff reprimands by having the students "resolve it themselves" by writing apology letters. I do not feel that that is appropriate when another child puts their hands on another to let them "resolve it themselves" I do not feel like he is in a good, safe environment and am currently looking at alternatives for him fnow.

i love Grace Warner its an amazing school. the principal is great. I was a student there from like grade 3 till i graduated in 11-12. I love the teachers the help me improve a lot. The working curriculum is not to hard yet not to easy. Its just right for me, and the extra staff are soooo help full. The after school program has you work on homework or read a book for the first 30 minutes or more. Yes I was bulled and it was taken care of right away.i feel grace Warner is great for any kid .

My children attend this school, my son is verbally abused and shoved around. He has been shoved to the ground and kicked by other students and the teachers do NOTHING!! When students are caught fighting they are sent to the principle who had them write a note of apology, which does NOTHING!!! I am going to be forced to move my children to a new school!

My son was threatened by other students at this school. A few of the teacher's were great, however, most of them would yell and say demeaning things to the students. I would not recommend another child to this school unless some of the older "Tenured" teachers were removed.

While this school has a professional principal, it's teachers need improvement. Some of the older ones who have been there for years, yell and say disrespectful things to the children. The educational program seems to be ok, but not great.

I have a grandchild who has been going to Grace Warner for a few years now and since she is now in the 4th grade things have changed a lot..I know there have been a lot of Education cuts but how can the teachers expect to concentrate fully on what each child needs when there is more then 30 students in the class..I know that from what I have seen and heard in this passed year has been a disappointment..And I can only hope that next year will be a better year for all..


Posted February 27, 2010

This is a great school. The teachers are well educated and I have been able to see the staff perform well with the children. My child has attended for 2 years and is a great student because of her teachers.

my daughter went here for a few months due to some issues she had to be moved to another school...the teacher was less than impressionable, said some demeaning words to her students, i was there when one of those incidents happened...i liked the school overall but not that particular teacher...hopefully she doesnt teach there anymore or has retired...

My first child is about to finish his first year at Grace Warner and we have been very pleased with the school so far. The teachers are very well educated (more than half have their master's degrees) and very kind and caring and dedicated to their students. Mr. Kuper, the principal is wonderful and has played 'red light, green light' with the kindergarteners on several occasions. Our son is reading like a pro (we think thanks to the full day kindergarten program) and doing very well in math too. We are happy about the school except for the parent involvement. We've been to all of the family nights with about ten other families (out of about 400) which is pretty pathetic. Aside from that, we like Grace Warner. :)

I volunteerd at this school for quite a few months and I have to say I would want my future children to attend. The teachers are amazing, and the previous principle was great, she went into every class room everyday. The new principal is every bit as amazing as the previous. I recommend this school to anyone!

I have substituted at this school on short term contract and on other occasions. This school has very, very good teachers and a principal who comes into each classroom, every day, to make her presence known. Students do well here.
