The school is low performance in every academic way. There is no communication with the parents. Even if you tried to communicate, teachers don't . Teachers are still calling students names they shouldn't . Even the Principal doesn't take measure into his own hands. Kids are being bullied and nothing is being done.

I attended this school when I was in the 5th grade. My child has attended Budd since Kinder and she's currentlt i the 5th grade. This school year, my 4yr will be attending the pre-k program there. From experience I know that that there teachers are commited. I have a few concerns though. There are not enough programs there. We need more parent involvement, fund raisers, and volunteers to take a different approach this year. I feel as though we are limiting our children ability to interact and socialize on a different level. Education should be excited and our babies need to learn more about teamwork and having good manners. It easy to say what should be taught at home. Sadly saying that things dont always happen that way. Good parents have better kids.

This school is not a good school. They need more professional people to work there.They don't have any repect for the children. Starting from the cafeteria staff all the way to the teachers.


Posted November 2, 2004

Please! talk to your children about there day. Don't take there complaints & overlook it. My daughters 3rd grade teacher was using the word stuipd to describe her students. I had to demand a formal apology but the teacher never apolize to her students. That is terriable! And if you child needs extra help. Please commuicate with teacher by note, fax or phone call. Or your child will be pushed to the side.
