I jad my two boys in that school Some teachers are caring and very helpful but the ones for younger children lack of patient. One of them conplaining about how bad my child behavied in class (in front of some other parents!! !) and making us to feel very uncomfortable....I remember the face of my 6 year old when she embarrased her in public. I was not able to react quickly due To lack of English skills at that time. I talked to another parents and it seems that most of first grade teachers had lack of patient. That teacher also segregate my child and he couldnt make any friends that year. Her nice ESL teacher tild.me that he was isolated....that was the only year I had so many problems. I as All other teachers were very caring.

N0T HAPPY with this school. I experienced an incident there where they allowed anyone to walk into the school at anytime and point out my children when they had no business being around my kids in the first place. The principle really is a piece of work and does not know how to communicate well with parents: very unfriendly and unprofessional. as far as the teachers, the ones my children had: they were good &caring.

My niece attended this school last year and I am embarrassed of the lack of professionalism coming from this school. Some of the teachers lack the patience to be teachers and seem to be uneducated when it comes to teaching their students. Bullying should not be accepted in any school much less coming from teachers segregating their students from other students. When approaching situations like this to the principle of school #5, the principle is a piece of work. I would not recommend this school unless you are okay with your child feeling unsuccessful in life.

NOT HAPPY WITH THIS SCHOOL AT ALL, my nephew who attends this school has been having a hard time with the teacher making him feel unwanted around other students and singles him out on occasion for many things, ive never seen someone so unprofessional epecially with trying to handle a child who's impulsive but is top of the class. This issue has been riding for several months now and very little action had been taken into consideration regarding the teachers professionalism. It is unlawful especially to make a 5 year old child feel he cant make any friends. It frustrating and dissapopinting to see this happening and especailly to show the parents they do not care to investigate the issues.........

I am very happy with school # 5. I feel the teachers are dedicated, compassionate and understanding. As the mother of two shy boys I can say that the teachers have made a positive difference in my sons lives.

I absolutely love this school. There is an A+ staff and they are truly dedicated professionals that love their profession. All of the staff really care about the students and their education. I wish that every child can have as good of a school as Woodrow Wilson.

I am not at all happy with this school Not only has staff moral taken a nose dive, but parent moral has taken the same nose dive. Because of the administration, the staff and the parents do not want to participate in anything. I am dreading sending my children back to this school.

Did not like the school at all. They gave my son a hard time. He did poorly. He is in a better school and is a A student.
