Forge Road El School 2

Good: My child is improving in writing! Less cliques in the school yard. Improving: This school has a lot of potential for excellence now that a new administration has been implemented. In the future, communication between parents and teachers will likely improve if school district administrators require teachers to be more accessible. Teachers that respond to emails and participate in parent-teacher conferences are helpful to parents as it enables them to work as a team rather then in silos. It is hopeful that teaching methods, books and overall building wear and tear will be updated in the near future. Curriculum improvements might include more learner led and project based type of differentiated learning activities. Repetitive busywork, worksheets and excessive homework drills might be replaced with more interactive, high interest content. Also, a stronger emphasis in differentiated instruction and teacher rotation are key steps in creating life-long learners! Currently, I would recommend this school for mainstream direct- instruction regular-ed learning types. Lots of football players and team spirit in this school! Go Cougars!
