We moved in to the district last year and could not be more happy with the schools. The staff has been suburb. My children's teachers are welcoming and keep us up to date on our child's progress and activities.
I have had two children at Five Points and have been so impressed with the teachers and the staff. They go above and beyond. The teachers get to know your child and their individual needs. The district as a whole I do feel truly values our children and our opinions.
I've had three kids go through five points west and overall it's a very good school. Most of the teachers my children had were outstanding, a few were average and one was a dud. The reason I scored Principal Leadership low is that our repeated attempts to address issues with the dud teacher seemed to fall on deaf ears. I just pray the next levy passes so we can keep class sizes reasonable.
My child attends 5 Points W. We are unhappy with the way the school punishes the children. When they get in trouble, the teacher has the child walk in a figure eight at recess in front of the children at recess. I find that embarassing for the child and unusual as well. I have also had problems with the school not sending notes home with my child when he gets in troublem or 'flips a card.' How, as a parent, are we supposed to correct the problem if we don't know what he/she is doing wrong? Overall, I am dissatisfied with the quality of the staff.
