Look at the terminology being used in the ratings of five in the recent reviews.Whoever is giving this school a five star rating is crazy.The great school rating is a 1 for worst school in it's city.The state gives this A 93 percentage for worst elementary school in the state and of NY.Check the data before going here.Check Facebook and YouTube for schenectady city school district bullying,it an eye opener
This is the second quarter,my daughter is not reading or understanding the material given by her teacher.Today the teacher lied to the principal stating that my daughter was reading at grade level,even though her remedial teacher stated the contrary.I ask for my daughter to be placed in a 1 grade only class,because her current class has 1teacher instructing 1 &2 grade.The principal Mr.flanders said no,because my daughtert is to shy to switch class,and thats why she's failing that hurt
The teachers at the school are involved and passionate about the students and their families. They understand the curriculum and meeting the needs of students. The assistant principal and principal are always available for me to meet with them.
I have to say i was very nervous sending my son to schenectady public schools , and I am happy I did. Yates is amazing Principal Flanders is great he is there every morning when kids arrive he is easy to contact and takes an interest in helping the kids learn and behave. I am very happy with the decision I made and extremely happy he is at Yates. Now if more parents were willing to work with our teachers and princiapals in curving our children to learn and obey rules maybe we could make something of our kids..
The teachers do not seem to relate to their student population and even were at times heard yelling at them. The teachers are unapproachable and seem to be there just for a paycheck. Not at all happy with the atmosphere there.
Teachers and principal are available and listen to parents. The school is really about what students need, academically and socially. It's a family atmosphere with a caring, veteran staff. The principal knows every child and their needs.
