My son has gone here for the last three years (grades 2, 3 and 4). We have not had a good experience nor has my son. Recess is non-existent, physical education classes consist more of rule making than actual physical activity. I have reached out on several (dozens upon dozens of times) occasions to teachers (main teacher, ELA, music, etc) via email and nothing gets answered. Principal is engaged with parents and students, but it stops there. We are moving for my son's 5th grade next year, and I'm so thankful for that!
The children are not allowed recess. The parents are not encouraged to interact with the school. Music classes such as chorus/band are held after school but only 1 day/week for 1 hour. My son has made friends, but simply hates school because he is incredibly bored. They put him in special ed...even though he has a very high IQ. He has no interest in the work they give him. Plus he now has severe test anxiety! As soon as we can make enough money, I will be sending him to a private school.
This school does nothing to help my child learn. My son is constantly bullied by several other children and nothing is being done about it. I have seen my child go from happy and full of life to depressed and anti-social in just a matter of 2 years. The classroom sizes are way too high. over 25 students to a class. Both my son and myself have needed counseling from the stress this school has caused . I am either taking him out of this school or moving. No way am i sending him there another year.
This school is one of the best and helps students interact with others around them!! The teachers help the students understand concepts and the principal has monthly school meetings scheduled for the students,teachers and parents. Two parent teacher confrences are scheduled throughout the year. After school activities are available for students to join. The music program is EXCELLENT and really should be given more attention!! I love this school!!
The school really works more toward the state tests than the every day achedimics. The music program is very good, but, the school does not really seem to get info out about it so other children want to join. The level of parents in the school currently is extremely low, it seems the principal prefers we don't see what is going on.
This school is deplorable. Principal not willing to work with parents. Principal and some teacher's, do not have acceptable social skills when interacting with parents. Teachers not willing to go the extra mile to help students. Communication between parent/teacher is limited due to principal's rules. Very little extra help for stuggling students.
