We moved here from out of state, so I expected there to be differences and adjustment needed. But my kids went from loving school to begging not to go in 2 months. My twins have an IEP and the teachers won't slow things down for them. I don't mean that I expect them to slow the whole class down all the time. But when my kids need to have a spelling word repeated once or twice during spelling tests, I would expect the teacher to do so. They refuse to do such things. It almost seems as though kids with an IEP aren't really welcome in the classes. At least that's how my twins feel. My Kindergartner is struggling because of pent up energy- they don't have recess because "kindergartners have too much work for recess. But they go to PE 3 times a week." We WILL NOT send our kids to a Watertown District school next year- we will homeschool. If we could manage it, they would have been pulled already.
