My daughter has attended since kindergarten and is now entering the thrid grade. She has been bullied since day one and no one seems to be able to stop it. I have involved teachers, the principal, the school counselor, and yet she still comes home in tears most days. I just don't know what to do. Academically she is doing extremely well, reading a full grade ahead and also exceling in math. I just wish the other children had learned some respect somewhere along the lines and how to treat others. When I spoke to one of the mom's of a child who was tormenting my daughter she laughed and told me he was just being a boy. I have a son and believe me, he would never act like that.
Zoller was an excellent choice my husband and I made for our children. One in 2nd grade and the other in fourth, they have attended since Kindergarten. The level of education the Teacher's have is exemplary to any elementary school and the principal Jane Poklemba I cannot say enough about. She holds all children accountable to learning and creating a safe environment. I reccommend this school to anyone considering a Schenectady Elementary School.
Jessie T. Zoller School has for my two sons, been a mixed blessing. The teachers they have had (8 total) have been the most outstanding teachers I have ever known. They stay late, come in early and one even bought breakfast for a child every single day when her 'parent' didn't feed her. However, the principal at this school is an 'excellent administrator.' She refuses to allow fun field trips, because she says their job is to educate, however, she has both music concerts (spring and winter)during the day when working families can't attend. She is the sole reason we are leaving the district. The other major problem is parental involvement. In a school of over 500 students, there are 12 PTO members. At back to school night the average 'class size' is 7. 7 parents in a class of 30. On a scale of 5, Zoller's a 3.
