My son is currently in second grade. The school was recently renovated and is now called Gordon Creek Elementary. My son has an IEP and I feel his teachers have been very willing and helpful in fulfilling his IEP. So far, his teachers have been very nice and interested in the kids learning/understanding the material. Parents and teachers have good communication. I have not seen any bullying in his first two years of attendance. There is a positive motivation program in place for learning and behavior in the school. The teacher to student ratio is very good and there are separate teachers for the humanities classes.
Being an educator myself I have found this school to be excellent. The teachers are top notch and care about the children's needs, not just academic but emotionally and socially. The principal is young, energetic and has included a nice character building program to the school. They have wonderful enrichment activities on Saturdays for FREE voted in by the community. If you want a top notch education this school is doing it's job. Thank you MTS and keep up the great work...you have the most important job in the world...educating our youth...kuddos to you.
This school has no walls. When I say this - I mean no physical walls. My daughter often complained of the teacher next door who was a yeller. It disrupted her class because, as I mentioned, there are no walls. We fought lice and strep the entire year - it was passed from student to student and there were constant health notices about both issues. I would not recommend this school if you can help it.
I can't say anything but great things about this school. My daughter who is now in 1st grade had 1/2 day kindergarten and was able to read.... really read by december. I don't know how they got it all done in such a short day. The teachers expect more and they get it. You feel welcome as soon as you enter the building and you know they really care about your kids. I could not recommend it more.
I cant begin to tell you how wonderful this school is. I am a parent of a 2nd who is on the spectrum (autism) and is in special education inclusion classroom. The treachers are truely heaven sent, and the communication flow is remarkable. My son has progressed far more than we ever expected. Whether you have a child with special needs or a typical child, MTP is the place to be. The school is certainly all about the children. GREAT JOB MILTON TERRACE!
