Sand Hill-Venable Elementary 5

I miss Sand Hill so much! My child went here for K & 1st, & now goes to Vance which is rated higher than Sand Hill. Well, I guess you really just cant tell from these ratings because I haven't found anything great about Vance, & miss Sand Hill so much :( At Sand Hill I was always up to date on what was happening in the classroom, the school, & the community. Not as many disruptive children, & my child excelled & loved going to school. I am giving Vance a little more time, but we may request a transfer back to Sand Hill.

MY CHILD HAS ATTENDED THIS SCHOOL SINCE KINDERGARTEN. WE HAD A CONCERN HER KINDERGARTEN YEAR THAT WE DEALT WITH. HAD A SUPERB TEACHER IN 1ST THEN IN 2ND THE TEACHER WASN'T THE BEST. 3RD & 4TH WERE GOOD BOTH YEARS WE HAD A SWITCH IN THE MIDDLE OF THE YEAR DUE TO MATERNITY LEAVE. A NEW PRINCIPAL TOOK OVER IN 2012-2013 SHE IS A LITTLE LACKING IN COMMUNICATION WITH THE PARENTS. A NEW ASSISTANT PRINCIPAL STARTED 2013-2014 HE APPEARS RUDE AND SLEF IMPORTANT FROM THE COUPLE OF RUN INS I HAVE HAD WITH HIM. IF I HAD A CHOICE MY CHILD WOULD NOT BE ENROLLED AT THE SCHOOL STAFF HAS BECOME COMPLACENT AND UNCARING ABOUT THE EDUCATION THEY PROVIDE. I HAVE ALWAYS TRIED TO BE INVOLVED IN MY CHILDS EDUCATION BUT THIS SCHOOL MAKES THAT DIFFICULT.
