Lisette Caesar needs to go. She is demeaning. A "teacher" of five years wrote that this school was allotted $250,000 dollars in grants. Wow. Impressive, let's see what "Professor Caesar" does with it. Overall this school has amazing children, however the high turnover rate of teachers should be noted. I warn all future teachers of Mosaic. Run.
Mosaic is a great school. Since my daughter has been attending mosaic she grow academically and socially. my daughter attend the girl support groups in Mosaic . Since she has been participating her self -esteem soars & she outgoing now.
This school has made tremendous positive changes in the community. I have had the pleasure of working at the school for over 5 years and have seen the school move up the continuum. The school has a host of partnerships that allows for students to be involved in extracurricular activities in the afternoons and Saturdays. The school has been granted over $250,000 this year in grants which has helped the school build a greenhouse, have reading nights, fund trips and more. The teachers work closely with the community and administration to provide the students with a standards based, engaging curriculum.
I had an opportunity to visit this school Saturday for an Ice Cream Social event for young girls. It was fantastic. My girls loved it. It was inspiring and also educational for the They learned how to be a young lady with a vision that they can be anything they want to be. Kudos to Principal Ceaser!!!!! I can't wait for next event.
I have a second grade child.My child feels safe in school. the office staff is wonderful when I had to register my child. it was nice to feel welcome to a new neighborhood. the parent coordinator gave me a nice walk through. my child was welcomed with a book bag with supplies.
I think a very good point has been made in two of the reviews about the fact that there is virtually no parental involvement at this school. When my children were young, the school they attended had a large parents' association and their influence was huge. They were an incredible support to the school. The school always rated 9 or 10.
My child has attended this school for almost 5 years, and I think it could be better. Their standardized testing scores could be better. A few of the teachers are excellent, however, most of the teachers could use improvement on their instructional methods and working with the students to ensure their understanding of the material. Too, the teachers need to learn to effectively manage the students. When the teacher learns one of their children are being bullied, they need to effectively explain to the bullying student(s) that it will not be tolerated. The Principal and the Assistant Principal do lack the necessary leadership skills to run the school. Also, there is an extremely decreased amount of / no parental involvement because we have been "walled-out" by the Mosaic Principals and Staff.
This school is horrible. Special Ed kids are placed in regular classes as if there normal. There's no parent participation. Teachers are great.
Horrible school, with an even worse principal! I can't even begin to address the incompetency of this principal! She is demeaning, demoralizing, unprofessional and lacks leadership qualities. Needs to be removed and fired ASAP! If the school had a new principal it has the potential to be good but not a place I would chose to send my child.
