The morale is low due to the fact that this school will be closed by 2013 and serve only pre-k. The teachers are worried about job security and I don't blame them, especially in today's economic times. However, this has greatly affected how they feel about teaching and it has trickled down to the kids. I feel the kids are not getting everything they need at this moment.
We had previously lived in the Coweta school district and my sons grades were awful. He hated school and would cry every morning. We moved into the Arrow Springs district because of all the great things we heard about the school. They were all true! My son loves going to school and his grades are improving
I have lived in this area for 2 years now and have been very pleased with this school from the very beginning. This year we did get a new Principle, but I can tell she is going to do great. My son is now in 3rd grade. In first grade he was behind in reading. This school got right on it and involved me to help him do better. He was doing much better by just half way through the school year. This year he has struggled with math, and again the teachers are helping him to get were he needs to be and to develop a love for math rather than being intimidated. I brag about this little school all the time.
You can not ask for a better School. The principal, Larry Smith, knows every student's name. The Teachers are excellent. My son's first grade Teacher, Mrs. Woodward, was fantastic. Not only did my son learn but he also felt safe and loved. She is an amazing Teacher. My son loves School and that is due in a large part to the wonderful Teachers and Staff.
My oldest daughter wants to read and study all the time, her sisters however love to visit with other children. Because her first year was a little difficult I decided to homeschool my three daughters for a few years then sent them back to school at Arrow Springs. Even though my oldest daughter still wants to study more than play she really has become attached to all the staff and many of the students at her school and looks forward to beginning class every September. We also appriciate that everyone that works at the school is respected from the janitor to the principal!
I, as a parent am very impressed with Arrow Springs. My children love attending this school. The staff cares about their students. One of my sons was struggling in school due to his age and Mrs. Roskam went beyond the call of duty and helped him get passed it. If it weren't for her I truely believe that he would still be struggle. The children at the school brag about the teachers quite often. If I had teachers and a principal like them I might have enjoyed school more. Thank You all for being a wonderful staff.
