Mrs. Wiesbrot, who instilled love of learning to my son. He was quite indifferent at the beginning of the year. Amazing change

We had an issue with a student bullying our child here. Our child was nervous to keep going to school. When we informed our child's teacher, she mishandled the situation by telling our kid to simply ignore the bullying. The principal took weeks to address the matter or even show any understanding that the matter was going on. The principal has since been replaced by a new principal who seems more invested in the school and more approachable. I also found the parent involvement in this school to be low. There is little sense of community. One major holiday assembly was canceled because of a lack of parent interest. The way students are dismissed at the end of the school day, especially the kindergartners, is unsafe. The children are allowed to leave the building with little supervision as to whom they are going with. Also, it took several parent complaints to the office for the teachers to open the door a minute early in the snow and heavy rain, even when the kids were huddled and cold right outside of the teachers' line of sight. We were so unhappy with this school that we placed our children elsewhere.

I am so proud that my kids (currently in 2nd and 5th grade) are part of the Menlo Park Family. The Principal and the teachers take extra efforts in helping the kids grow in a safe and nurtured environment. The new teachers coming on board are very tech savvy and it will ultimately help the kids in the long run.
