the people that deal with the kids with learning disabilities are phenominal! A couple in particular are Donna Rondolet, and Mrs. Gammon. my boys are very self-conscious and emotional on top of the learning disabilities, and the staff are awesome!!
I'm not a parent, but I am a student at this school. I would like to say that though many teachers would like to and do reach out, the system does not. This school has nice teachers, but it lacks in just about everything else. Often enough, you have to take matters into your own hands. I'm in grade eight.
I am very dissapointed with this school. I have a 504 coded child and can't seem to get the help we need. When we transferred from elementary to Junior high, the teachers didn't have a clue, for two months that my child was coded with ADD. I only found this out by chance, one afternoon. I expect any concerns from the teachers to be expressed with a note or a phone call ASAP. This is our second year at the school, and close to the end of the year I still can't get any communication going between school and home. My child is falling through the cracks and I'm not happy about it. I have considered homeschooling or the Sylvan Center, but that doesn't solve the issue. I shouldn't have to do the teacher's job! I am a concerned 'involved' parent and resent the time my child is waisting at school!
