JW Sam staff and volunteers are exceptional! They all have a genuine concern for the children to succeed, and all work toward that end. I have a special needs child, and he just blossomed under their programs!
You were a 4th grade teacher for nearly 20 years? You wrote "seems their is a concern for the staff pushing medication on students over the last few years". Really? Your grammer is terrible. The staff has been more than helpful to our family. We pulled our child out of Tulsa Public Schools because they wanted to label her as ADD. She has improved dramatically while attending J.W. Sam and without meds.
One of the worst schools I have seen. I was a 4th grade teacher for nearly 20 years, I would not recomend anyone send their child here. The staff appears friendly and qualified, but- take the time to walk around and observe the class rooms during their instruction. Very regemented, not a lot of hands on learning, incredibility structured. Style falls in the old style of learning- sit down, shut up and do the work.. Talked to several parents, seems their is a concern for the staff pushing medication on students over the last few years. Wondering what % of students have started taking meds since they started there? Worth looking in to. Grand mother
