I've come to find out I have a 5th grader who is on a 3rd grade reading level. This school has done nothing to help this child. My husband and I have been seeking help with our child since early 2nd grade and our pleas have gone unanswered. Now that our child is leaving their school they want to address the poor grades and reading levels....REALLY NOW! Your teachers need to retire or be retrained because they don't know how to teach students with special needs.
Very poorly I have been fighting with the school since my daughter was in second grade for help with her. She is now in fifth and she is getting resource room and presently failing and I still ask for help but constantly get brushed aside. They don't offer intergraded classrooms in this school, and they feel it wouldn't be right to move her. I feel she just gets pushed aside for the kids who are doing well.
There is a true sense of community and family at Slocum. There is a tremendous amount of parental involvement and pride. The students are challenged and cared for. I love this school.
it is a great school with a really nice and friendly staff who cares about the children going to it
Edith L Slocum has a very warm and caring enviroment. The teachers are wonderful and the principal always looks out for the childrens' safety. You could not look for a better elementary school. This school is top notch!
Excellent principal, great environment! Some of the teachers need a little more motivation and others need experience.
The school is one of the best on Long Island. The principal even reads to each class.
Sandra Rubin is an excellent principal who leads by example. From the teachers who work for her to the activities at the school she believes that if it is not in the best interest of the students then it's not good enough for her school. She instills a sense of pride for the school & provides a safe & caring environment for learning.
