This is the worst school my children have ever been to! The teachers are not helpful or cooperative with parent involvement. They want NO parent involvement it seems. The schools rules about lunch room behavior is absurd. Kids have very little time to eat and relax, but they are not relaxed because of the traffic light in the room. If they talk this light changes colors, then the kids have to stop and point at the light and put a bubble in their mouth (try doing that while EATING) then if it's not quiet enough still this light goes to red and a loud siren sounds (loud enough that the lunch ladies wear ear plugs, but obviously they don't care if it hurts our kids ears) at this point the vice principal takes the kids recess from them so they can practice being quiet. Then they wonder why the kids are not focused in class. PTA only wants to sell you stuff, should be called Avon. There is no parent inclusion, updating or working with parents and teachers. They just sell junk, and have pta meetings to discuss next year's elections. Award ceremony every grading period is a joke. Every kid gets a reward. Seriously what is that teaching them? This school sucks. avoid it if possible.
This school has some wonderful caring teachers. The teacher's aids appear to be of low education and are confused about their roles. They don't seem to really want parents around, volunteering and otherwise. Some of the drop off/ pick up rules are strange. Admin's main priority is to their union, no parent input will be considered. Other parents complain about not enough help or no help for their special needs children. The good teachers make up for the negatives though I feel.
Exellent school and great teachers. Great parent involvement and school programs. Very supportive of military families.
