Grateful to: Teacher

Mrs. Tirone. My daughter is an advanced student, but she didn't love reading. Miss Tirone motivated her and now she's reading chapter books for pleasure in second grade. I'm so grateful because reading is the key to educational success in any subject.

Teacher effectiveness: Very effective
November 22, 2015
I'm very happy with the teachers. Miss Tirone uses research based practices that are known to be highly effective. My daughter still goes on and on about how much she learned in her class. All of the teachers we've worked with are caring and friendly and work hard.

Amount of homework: Just right
November 22, 2015
My daughters don't get a lot of homework and, as a teacher, I think reading and life experiences are more important than hours of worksheets every night. I'm very happy with the amount of homework. I have friends with little ones who get an hour a night. That's insane. Young children need time for play and exploration. An excess of homework just makes kids learn to hate school.

Develops honesty: Agree

My eldest daughter's teacher is encouraging kindness with a random acts of kindness jar to write down any nice things they see their classmates doing. Each teacher my girls have had has addressed any issues with compassion and my girls feel safe there.

I think it's great that the school continues to put teaching before the test. Every informed parent knows the test scores are not the only way to measure a school. The commitment of the teachers, the welcoming culture, strong management- these things matter so much more than the test scores. The lessons are more than Common Core workbooks and I'm so grateful. Parents seem pretty involved. My daughter feels safe there and cared for. I think it's a really good school!

The new principal here is great, and the teachers are really stepping it up to meet his higher standards. Most parents are involved with the school and the teachers have an altruistic interest in fostering growth in their students.

Best Teacher-Parent-Principal communication in my history of raising children. Awesome Environment for learning. Great for building knowledge and self esteem.

excellent academic programs. Music and art were available. Parents seemed really involved in activities and feild trips. Teachers put in the extra work.

Having had a sister who attended OHIO School for many years due to her disability, I had always heard that it was a good school. When my son's school shut down however, I can honestly say that I wasn't thrilled with the idea of him being bussed to the other end of town, but thankfully many of the teachers we had known from his old school transfered to OHIO with him. OHIO school is a wonderful school. The teachers are friendly and very willing to work with parents. I would like to see more work done with the GT team, and perhaps a bit more individualized help, as my son has had a few problems grasping the things he is learning...and having grown up in a completely different era, we cannot always help him because we don't always understand the new methods ourselves.
