Ballantyne Elementary
Amount of homework: Not enough

We went months with NO homework. Over 3 months which isn't normal. Some teachers are not doing what others are doing. The school is not consistent.

Only with selected students and teachers. We have found some teachers are trying their best. Others do not. The leadership is weak.

The principal is the most cold uncaring woman we have ever encountered with a school. Zero empathy with children and parents.

Teachers address concerns promptly; I've had good experience with kindergarten team. Teachers seem to work hard.

Polar ticket is behavior chart that's used. Any teacher or staff member can make a comment on it. Kids with limited comments get once a month celebration/prize. This helps students develop respect.

Kindergarten team is great! Carpool is dysfunctional. Is there anyone at this school that can step up and resolve the carpool issue?!
