My child was in kindergarten at Chippewa. They use "phonetic" approach to spelling where they don't actually give the correct spelling of a word, rather let the child spell it out like they think it "sounds". I said that my child was very bright and often asked how things were spelled and I wasn't going to lie. The teacher pretty much got argumentative with me and said that I didn't have to lie, but should rather say something like "how do you think it is spelled?" versus giving the correct spelling. I nodded and went home and continued to give the correct spelling as I have always done. Oh and I also moved my child to a private school at first grade which had a strong focus on basics of spelling, reading, writing, arithmetic and computer education. My child's spelling and reading skills are several grade levels above current grade at this point, while I know many neighborhood children who went to Chippewa who are struggling especially with spelling.

We are relocating from California. The staff at Chippewa bent over backwards to 'show us the ropes' and introduce themselves. Very supportive atmosphere.
