I've been going to this school since Pre-K and the teachers are switched around. There's almost always some kind of drama because of work, mostly because the teachers don't communicate with each other about what homework they are giving to the students. Sometimes we have two or three huge projects due or tests on the same day, and it's very hard to keep up when you need to relax a little. In addition to this, teachers will often make the whole class suffer because of somebody's need to disturb everyone else, causing us to receive even MORE homework. It's kind of disappointing that there isn't even a school counselor OR an assistant principal for the kids that need someone to talk to. We used to have an assistant principal, then the next year we had a different one for a while but for some reason she went to another school. I think that you are better off working by yourself whenever you can, like I did so that you get a LOT more work done than everyone else. I'm going into eighth grade in September. Once you hit seventh grade, it's hard to avoid getting in trouble, even for something you didn't do. Overall, School 5's biggest flaw is that things can tend to get unorganized.
It's Alright....I've Been Here Since Pre K Was Full Time And When 8th Grade Was Introduced To The School,Im Currently In 8th Grade...They Always Tend To Switch Teachers Around Every Year,They Switched A 1st Grade Teacher To 6th Grade And A 4th Grade Teacher To Kindergarten In The Past...Students Are Out Of Control!
School 5 has very dedicated teachers and the principal is exceptional. My son and nieces attend this school and from Pre-K they can read and write. Our family has gone through a very difficult loss and they have been very comprehensive and understanding with the children's needs. A school that cares and demonstrates that their students can be the best they can be has my full vote! I wouldn't had chosen any other school for my son and nieces success!
We're very happy with the education our children are getting as well as their safety at School 5. The principal takes an active role and knows all the children by name.
This is a great school. My children love attending School 5. My children are challenged and continue to grow.
When my granddaughter and grandson started at school 5 i was a little concerned. But after meeting the administration and teaching staff and saw how concerned they were with the wellbeing of the children and the learning process i felt very happy having my grandchildren at school 5. They have wonderful teachers and assistants. Their extracurricular activities are fun yet educational and most of all my grandchildren love the school. I would highly recommend this school.
