My son attends Woodlawn Elementary and is in Kindergarten. I have been nothing but disappointed with the school and its policies. I volunteered for room mother, but "they don't do room mothers". The kindergarteners will take only one field trip this year, but the parents aren't allowed to go. No explanation was given. The art and music programs were shut down three weeks into the school year. Recess was taken away two months into the school year. This school has an open campus and they allow students (including kindergarteners) to pair up with a walking buddy and run errands for the teachers because they have no aids. This school is in a horrible neighborhood and it terrifies me that it lacks supervision. At lunch time teachers from all grades drop off their students (8 classes) in the cafeteria to be supervised by 2 to 3 adult monitors such as a principal or staff member while they eat in the teachers lounge. The kindergarten teachers act like they hate their jobs and have absolutely no patience with the children. Our teacher has been absent more times than I can count and once left early and put her class of 18 in with a neighboring class for the rest of the day!
love this school, the best teachers you could ever ask for! It has that small town feel to the school. My daughter is getting the best of the best here.
A great school, my daughter is in kinder, her teacher is very patient has good morals and is wonderful with all the kids, she takes so much time with each of them. I am so impressed with the progress my daughter has made this year. The fun projects they have the kids to do,and school outtings are all a delight. I would recommend this school to all, especially the kindergarten class.
