THEY LOSE MY SON FOR 45 MINS... He was supposed to be in class and he just walked out and no body knew it for 45 MINUTES. when i showed up and every one went on a frantic look for him... This is not caring for students.... and there is defiantly no COMPASSION when they are yelling and talking down to students
I would not recommend taking you child to this school. They are horrible, they do not care about your children's education. it is over populated and they often lose students. They lost my child for over 45 mins talk about a heart pumping anxiety attack for me as a mother. My child could only read 5 words by the end of the 1st grade and they didn't seem to think of this as a problem. They don't offer programs to help your child succeed. My children attended this school for 4 years and they will never never go back.
The school is overcrowded and there is a high population of second language learners. The school administration and staff are constantly doing their best to address these issues at all times. The district has purchased property for the purpose of a a new intermediate school but the public didn't pass the proposed school bond. If it had passed overcrowding would not be an issue in the 2007/2008 school year. The school does a complete head check of every child in the school on a routine basis. The teachers are all highly qualified or working towards that distinction, really care about kids, and totally support each other in everything.
My children had the unfortunate experiance to attend this school. The staff at this school do not keep parents up to date on important issues as children being hurt, head lice, or if children do not show up to school they do not notify you. The parent involvement is minimal. The academic programs are fine, however the school is overcrowded, and half of the children hardly speak english. My son was pushed down a stair and had a gooseegg on his chin and hip, and when he told the teacher he was told not to tattle! My daughter came home from school several times with headlice. After treating her and sending her back to school. They didn't even do a headcheck on her to make sure she did not have lice! We now Homeschool. IF YOU LOVE YOUR KIDS DON'T SEND THEM TO THIS SCHOOL! Take them to hermiston or homeschool.
