Profile Completeness

BASIC

Want to improve this school’s profile? You can!

All schools on GreatSchools begin with BASIC completeness, which includes important information like contact details and test scores. It’s up to the school community to take the next steps. As a parent or community member, you can share what you know with other families by writing a review or answering a few questions about what the school offers. As a school leader, you can upload photos, describe school programs, and more with an Official school profile.

The completeness meter moves to INTERMEDIATE, then ADVANCED, and finally HONOR ROLL as you complete the following: 10 or more reviews, at least 1 photo, and 9 program questions parents find helpful.

There are people in the Children Business (s) serving but not advocating for the purpose of service. Those servicing Children have the duty to make sure the client (The Children) has every Child Service Provider Protecting their greater good at all times...your clients are children! Why have you allowed them less than they are worth. Why didn't you stop the budget cuts? Why didn't you fight for Child and Family Services? Why would you lend yourself to the purpose of helping Families and not advocate to insure optimal success?

Childs is still going strong after over 100 years! The school now includes pre-K to 7th grades. If your child is willing to work, she or he will get an excellent education here. There are also plenty of extracurricular activities, and lots of opportunity for parents to get involved. Highly recommended.

This school has come along way. From political propaganda to an excellent family resource and educational institute. The teachers are more involved with the students and there is a better understanding between staff and parents. Not only does this school have a long and respectable background , but also many a well known persons have excelled from there to go elsewhere and do good in there lives. The staff is very committed to the students as well as the community in general; where everyone has a voice.

I am not happy with the quality of education that is offered at this school. My daughter's teacher offers one-on-one help outside of school hours and not at the school. There are no extracurricular activities. Music and art classes are included with the curriculum. There is no real parent involvement. The school's administration is not open to a lot of parent involvement or parent contact with teachers. The community is not supportive of school activities because of the attitudes of administration.
