The school looks great on the surface because the children who attend are children of affluent families. Naturally, the kids are overall good--though MANY already conceited, so be prepared for that. Unfortunately, the principal and teachers take the credit and there is ABSOLUTELY no care for parental concern, remarks, input. They only want our money and for us to take what they dish out. They push the learning MOSTLY to the home and onto the parents. When you ask them nicely to give less homework because we are exhausted from our own workday, they reply with statements like, "I have a Master's degree, and I have been doing this for 30 years...sounds like the reality coming from your child is not true. Perhaps we can meet to get to the root of the problem." Somehow everything is our fault. They are "never" responsible for the issue at-hand. BIGGEST problem: the principal. After trying to talk to him repeatedly, I made a note to self: 'Dr. Raymer: not approachable, doesn't care either, parents a nuisance unless you give him A LOT of money, he will NEVER vouch for your child, so let it go.' In my opinion and note to Dr. Raymer: "1. If you cannot care about the wellness of the children in your elementary school AND you can justify yourself year after year--sleeping well at night, then you're in the wrong position, buddy! 2. Do your job and get those teachers IN SYNC with parents. Be considerate of the home. What in the world gives you such entitlement? We PAY YOUR SALARIES. Listen and react positively to your parents, i.e., your employers. We have great potential, and YOU'RE RUINING a very precious time in our lives."
