I don't like the way the lunch monitors treat the children. As if the students were in milatary school,and worse. Your school needs changes in the lunch monitors. They don't have any patience. They yell at the children and have pulled my child Various times violently. This job is for people who have patients and treat children good and,have a specialty with children. The principal makes no changes and seems not to care about the serious situation.
I totally disagree about the way the teachers care for the student's! In the past week I've been at the school three times for my childs lunch and the lunch monitor's speak to the student's in a manor that was unreal to me. After I became aware of this, my son told me his teacher grabbed his arm and yanked him. I've contacted the school several times and have yet to speak to anyone. Convienetly they are on the phone EVERY time I call....my next step is calling the superintendent!
The secretary in the front office (Mrs. Husband) was very rude. I was enrolling my kid in school there and she acted as if she was too important to be bothered with questions from parents. I saw her have an attitude with several parents on registration day who were enrolling their kids at the school for the fist time. She was very snappy and unfriendly. She needs to realize that she is often the first person people meet when they come to the school for the first time and she sets the tone as far as first impressions of the school go. Needless to say, I transferred my child out of that school immediately.
Overall I had a very good experince and my child learned a lot. My child attended Kindergarten. Mrs. Gordon is a phenominal teacher. The preschool and kindergarten classes are ran well and the teachers are great. I can't speak on the other grade levels. It seems like a good school for K through 1st grade. Some of the other teachers a rude and the secretary in the office is rude and hardly ever smiles. The school has a new principal, this was her first year. She is nice and a good listener. Needs more parent involvement. And I wish the teachers would stop yelling at the kids and rushing them through breakfast. They run meal time like a boot camp. I understand there is a schedule to keep but how would they like it if there boss were yelling at them when they are trying to eat. Good grief.
This is a great school with great teachers. My children went to this school and now I have grandchildren going here. The teachers do not give up on our children and they stay at Foster because they care.
I love this school! My boys have attended another AISD elementary school and Foster is a more friendly, open environment. My children have not only thrived at this school, they have achieved and excelled. I love Foster!
My child has been at Foster for 3 years. The teachers my son has had have been wonderful! They care about the children they teach! I think Foster provides a little below average education. Yes there is room for improvement Like Arlington Children getting more Exercise at school
A wonderful, caring environment for children. Teachers really care about the well being of the students. A great education for the children - lots of resourses available. Children seem happy, school is always clean - old building, but it is always decorated with the children's artwork, writing, and projects. My child adores her teacher and is thriving academically.
