Overall, good school with diverse student population and teachers. My Son just graduated from 1st grade and I was very happy with the progress he has made. The teacher had a very methodical way of sending homework assignments for the whole week in a package and would check periodically on completion within the week. The parent teacher meetings were very informative to get update on progress, how he was doing vs peers.
GW is excellent!! It is equipped with top technology for children to excel in reading, math and science. The PTA is really involved and the curriculum requires parental involvement. The teacher well qualified and with many years of experience. The children are getting a lot of information about eating healthy, exercise, manners, ... Etc. I truly enjoy when my daughter enlight me with yoga positions....lol
The school and curriculum is good overall. More recently parents (like myself) have noticed that some teachers come to the class unprepared with the lesson thus slowing down the learning process. Also what is up with homework on loose sheets?? Let the kids use a notebook
The teachers are great but they need to focus more on getting a good reading program into the district. There are children that need a more focused approach to reading. It is sad that this district doesn't use any reading program other then Read 180 or Erst. These do not deal with comprehension, blends or decodeing.
