I think the school is making a great improvement with the new principal. He is actually involved with all of the school activities. He is walking the halls, helping with the drop offs in the morning, which was a huge problem. Pylons are setup at the curb, now. We get recorded calls for updates and reminders of activities. Ultimately it is up to the parents to step up and volunteer to do more for the children and school. Teachers can only do so much during their ten hours or more a day for our children. I wish they had more sport activities for the kids, like soccer, volleyball, baseball or softball. It takes time to make it to the top, but at least we are striving to get there!
Think Positive....stay positive!
They use the term of going above and beyond to help kids yet offer no one on one help or after school help it's clear that when a school gets low test scores and their rates are low then you would think that the school all together should step up to make sure are kids are learning and able to offer more and if your kid has Adhd their only option is to place them on meds so it's a quick fix for the school I really wish more parents would step up and come together so that we can make this school do more for are kids and if the school don't care maybe us as the parents can start a movement to take are problems with this school to someone who can hear are voice so change can be made for the sake of are kids
The principal of this school doesn't care about her staff. She is NEVER at school and is cold to the kids. However, the teaching staff is wonderful and should be given credit for putting up with their principal.
Need's improvement in teaching skill's for student's so if your child attends here & not doing so well it might not be your child it just might be who's teaching them i just say check into it u never know i know it happen to my Child .
I too went to Lida Hooe, and now as a parent I have put all three of my children inside of the school. I have enjoyed most of my childrens teachers.However the school is one of the older schools in the area, but still has great teachers and a great staff they care about there community. they are having a downfall due to all the new schools being built around them, all of the funding dont go to Lida Hooe anymore the new schools seem to be getting what they need for activities and such. if we get some of the funding to be split evenly then the school would be a wonderful place for everybody.there are teachers and co-workers there that have been there for years. how could it be a bad place.kids always seem happy
