I do not think the school is great at all. It is a public school after all and the children are required to take common core tests. The same format homework for 3 years now! Seriously?!? Cant you be a little more creative?!? Principle, ugh, another separate issue. The school's motto is KFC(kindness for caring) which the Principle or some of the teachers do not practice! Principle is unfair!!! And will try to make you feel irrelevant.
Everyone was scared to try and even mention the elephant in the room which was you either go with the flow or be ostracized for disagreeing. It was like a popularity contest , never saw the likes of it. Yes again its average, kids get a good education but the teachers had alot of "issues". I dont care for the principal either she has a way of making you feel irrelevant if you dont do things her way and everyone followed suit. Weird place.
The parking lot for dropoff at this school is a disaster waiting to happen. Cars are forced into a single line dropoff that takes on the average 10 minutes. No one is available to direct traffic. No alternate parking is available for walk in, as one available lane is "bus-only" and any other spaces are blocked by the line of drop-off cars. The principal is aware of the problem and has done nothing to address the situation.
I have been very pleased with the education my child has received at Anne Hutchinson. THe principal is wonderful and the teachers are dedicated professionals who take an interest in each individual child. A wonderful school!
I am a parent at the Eastchester school district and I am disappointed in the school system. I have two children and one of them does well but the other one has often needed help. I have been requesting extra services from the school since kindergarden and now my child is in 4th grade and still struggles. I'm doubting the Eastchester school disrict and hoping it's not too late for my child to get help. I think I might have to move to a different district just so my child can actually get help.
