Ortiz teachers no longer try to help their students. They never send home any information. They don't return phone calls unless you get Mrs Fulkerson the principal involved. They switch classes but the homeroom teacher never knows what going on with your child you have to go on a hunt for each teacher. They'll switch your kids classes without even letting the parent now. This year I didn't get a conference to see how my son was doing. When I finally just went up there the teachers that didn't just leave at 3 with the kids just told me oh your son is doing fine.... Real fine...They were so proud. But when I brought up that he wasn't even being given his spelling tests and some grades were low well then that acted like, really? We didn't know. Mrs donnell never tried to fix it either until I brought ms Fulkerson in it. This school was great for my 2 oldest kids But my 3rd child has suffered and been behind since 1st grade and all they care about now and teach all year is the star test. No Child left behind.....yea whatever.
I do not know anything about this school except they received a score of "10" on their March 2014 Health Department inspection, according to their published data. I hope this is a typo, but if not, that is very scary.
The teachers at Ortiz truly want their students to succeed. They go above and beyond to find out each child's strength. The library is top notch and Mrs. Hartline loves to see each student fall in love with reading. Mrs. Haley has a hands on science lab once a week for each class at the school. Her ideas are innovative and help each child learn the basic concepts of science. Mrs. Jenkins is an outstanding art teacher. She has an amazing gift and brings the artistic talent in each student in her class.
Ortiz is a wonderful school, filled with children who come from varied backgrounds. Teachers expect all children to work hard to achieve as much as they can. I'm impressed that the teachers care so much about their students.
