There is a new Disciplinarian in the school who has been dealing with any issues that the school previously had as a whole with behavior problems. I see a change with my nieces and nephews as I bring them to and from school. They are very comfortable in class now.
There is plenty of small group environment built in the school for students who may have learning difficulties. I have noticed that the students have a coach and are in pull-out classes. My daughter introduced me to one of the teachers.
The new Leadership that has been brought into the school is especially effective. Mr. Dwyer is a great Principal and is bringing some great leaders who are extremely motivated and well adjusted to this environment.
This is simply not a safe place for children to be. Constant fights, bullying, not enough support for the teachers so they have to rely on calling home for help. Kids develop bad habits and it starts here, and in kindergarten. The teachers do not send their children here and that speaks for itself. It is a matter of time before this school is shut down.
PFP is HORRIBLE! I heard good things about this school and that's why I choose this school for my son to attend kindergarten. The first two months were good for him then my son started getting in trouble what seem like everyday for starting from November and he continues to get in trouble to this exact day. The teacher has a classroom of 30 children with no help in the classroom. my son was sent home with a patch cut out of his hair and and cut his uniform shirt and no one knows or seen what happened. He told me that a classmate cut his hair and shirt. The school calls me all the time with several times asking me to pick him up. When I ask my son whats going in school he tells me that kids are teasing or hitting him so he gets mad . I must say my son is no Angel but I do believe that there are triggers in his environment and if the teacher is not catching it the problems will continue. The school does not have the proper resources they need in place for the children to calm down when upset. I get notes home everyday telling me that my son who's in kindergarten is roaming the halls in which he is allowed to leave class and walk the halls and no one cares. Just recently he was sent home with a busted lip and scratches on his face and no one bothered to call me to tell me what happened but yet call me when he's out of control because now he modeling the behaviors that he see's in the class. I feel that now my son is labeled the problem child and the just gave up on him but the behaviors did not start with him I'm ready to transfer him any day now. NO I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS AT ALL. Save your self the time and headache.
