Principal is more professional than the staff, but needs to rein his staff in. When picking up my child, a majority of parents have nothing but complaints about the staff and ineffective communication.
Professionalism needs to be improved. Without this, they cannot develop characteristics such as integrity in their students. Please remember that you are writing to a child, not an adult when writing sarcastic messages. And even addressed to the parents, KIDS CAN READ!!!
Find a better way to let parents know what homework is every night. This school touts the use of a website that is supposed to list nightly assignments but if often blank. After months of checking I gave up. Then, my son missed 2 assignments and received a very snarky note from his teacher.
This school is best! They have more activites,the teachers are great and helpful. Specially principal is great. She is so much interesting kids and everything. Thank you for everything. I know you are trying best one.
This school lacks in so many areas I will just mention a few. Due to large class size, many teachers cannot discipline and often resort to taking the child's recess away on a regular basis. The school district's focus on test scores (to keep funding) leaves teachers focusing on what is on those tests;therefore preventing them from focusing on the fundmental skills the children need to succeed in school, that are not on the PSSA, etc... The do have many programs to help children who need remedial services, but in my experience they do little to improve skills in Reading: Many teachers have admitted then have little to no time to let the children actually read during school hours. If your child needs extra help your best recourse is to hire a tutor, like Sylvan (and I might add expensive course), because at this school their so-called helpful programs will not get the job done.
