Nathan Twining Elementary School 4

Posted October 28, 2014
- a parent
For the 14-15 yr, the 2 schools on GFAFB were combined into pre-K-8 w/ 1 principal. K-3 teachers great! The principal is just OK for the lower elem grades; she is not "warm." The K-3 teachers have a good record of communicating with parents. After 2 mos of school, I haven't rec'd a single email from 4th gr teacher. The District is focused on reading and uses the daily five. The other subjects don't stand out, IMO. The transition from 2 schools has not been seamless. Big issue is car line. The base used to provide buses; no buses now. 3 parties involved: school, base (SLO & SFS) and BBC (housing). There has been no leadership to developing a viable car line solution that realistically takes the harsh WX conditions into consideration. The solution offered is marginally sufficient when the WX is good & students walk/bike. Sol'n not viable once temps are 0 or below & snow on ground (NOV-APR). I'm disappointed at the lack of leadership for this process. Teachers are dedicated to providing excellent educations to military dependents. The principal does not stand out. Facility is good; classroom size has mostly been great (<20); tablets given to kids grades 4 and up.
