The school isn't bad overall. Teachers are great-it is a bir older campu sbut kept very neat & clean & will be getting some remodel soon anyway as it is scheduled already I hear. The main pricipal is very involved & good with kids & tries to connect on their level. They sports program & band programs are outstanding I think it is also on an upswing I hear. My children have been very happy here & loved participating in sports & learend a lot there. Then again I am an involved parent which seems to make all the difference.
The problem is not with the teachers at this school, its with some of the students and their parents. Parents how do you let your child bring home a kindle or a galaxyS cell phone and do nothing about it? Just since school started my son has had both of these items stolen from him. I know everything my child bring into my home if something like that come through my door. I will be at the school finding out where my child got it from. I'm find in most cases that the apple dont fall far from the tree. The child steals they learn it from someone in the home. People teach you kids to keep their hands off other people things. To many hoodlums and thieves... Otherwise great educators.
Great school. Wonderful teachers and a good group of kids. Our son has really gotten a lot from this school.
My son attends school there and he always tell me how the teachers spend more time on the computers or on their cell phones than they do with the students. He has also stated to me when he asks teachers questions, he is told to ask one of the other people in the class just because she does not want to get off of the computer and help him. They don't even know that half of their students are sleeping in class. Then, he always gets assignments that have to be done on a computer. It is almost like the school expects every student to have a computer and internet service of their own. And the teachers even though they can be on the computer all day, they do not allow computer time for the students to do this assignment in class.
I work at this school. The staff is wonderful. The teachers are vcery good withthe students, very helpful. The school is older, but kept very clean and neat. The lunchroom staff is awsome. The manager is very on top of things and runs a tight ship. He staff is friendly and always smiling. We have had lunches at other schools and well......not good at all. This lunchroom will serve the best food in the whole district. Over all the whole sxhool is the best.
the faculty/staff get along so wonderfully. they work together and help each other when necessary. the principal knew what he was doing when he hired all of them!
Students are orderly for the most part. The teachers are good about working with your child in regard to missed work or homework the 'dog' ate. Esembler is the best! The teachers are quick to respond to emails and encourage parent involvement. There is no newsletter that I have seen and I am a member of the PTA. Finding out about school events is challenging. The school is strict about returning progress reports from home. Overall it is a nice school in a good location.
