My nephew has had a hard year emotionally (loss of immediate family member being one thing) and has been acting out a bit. Although the school has been made aware of this they continue to put him down and make it as if he is slower than the rest of his class. He actually shows that he knows everything and knowledge is more than what his "tests" show. The school has continued to show no concern or empathy towards our family situation and would not even give any solutions until the school board was contacted. It seems all the teachers want to do is come to the defense of his teacher and blame the child instead of owning up to brushing him off and allowing him to slip through the cracks. It's now the end of the school year and they are JUST now trying to give extra help but it may be too late. In all my years of dealing closely with teachers and caregivers I have never seen such a lack of genuine love and concern for a child. If you want your child to PROSPER and not just be average then this is not the school for your child.
I personally saw the staff focus on protecting/defending their staff instead of just apologizing and helping the student. They would rather act as though the child is not smart or is behind (has been proven to not be true).
My nephews teacher has nothing nice to say about him. Clearly shows frustration. No empathy toward the fact that he is grieving. Blames him for being the problem instead of being a loving teacher and actively helping his mother to find different solutions to help him prosper.
My 6 year son was struggling academically and emotionally and all we got were excuses to validate why they offered no resolution until 3 months before the school year ended. The school had no regard for the trauma he had been through and offered no resources to assist me. This school is no more special than Nathaniel Alexander, the school he attended for Pre-K. When I offered to come to class to help the teacher with him, she said it would not be helpful but continued to send him to the office on a regular basis. I had to reach out to the school board in order to be granted a class observation and meeting with the staff.
They are only able to offer limited help. My sons teacher showed frustration instead of trying to help him be successful. There were no offers for resolution until I reached out to the school board. Then the school stepped up in order to cover themselves.
