My child endured relentless bullying for the first six weeks of the school year before we removed her. Although I went to administration and counselors and the teacher, it continued and escalated to the point that my child didn't even feel safe going to school.
The kindergarten team is wonderful. I can't say the same for the first grad team. My son has had a terrible experience this school year and there was no support from his teacher or administration to resolve the bullying. his teacher would apparently tell him "don't tattle" or "ignore it" when he was trying to express the bullying he was enduring in the classroom. This taught him he couldn't count on her to protect him.
We transferred our son from another school in the district his 5th grade year. We wish we would have made the decision to transfer him years earlier. His teacher was phenomenal and brought out the best in him. The GT program and teacher is stellar. Most importantly, the environment is safe, calm and provides a wonderful learning environment.
Well, we had another great year! The teachers still amaze me with their ability to guide and instruct. The school counselor, school nurse and principals are by far the best I have ever seen. This school continues to improve with their efforts to educate and nurture our children's needs. The only complaint I have was this year the PTA suffered greatly. It was hard to get involved with a group of people that didn't want your opinion or ideas heard. I still had a great experience with the school. I just didn't get involved with the PTA due to lack of professionalism, and thoughtfulness. If you are ready to join the PTA next year and start anew I will be at the first meeting. Hopefully, the PTA can begin a new, more proactive journey in 2014-2015. Again, this school exceeds expectations on educational levels. I'm so proud of the Neidig staff! Way to go Neidig Team
Neidig elementary seems to be improving by leaps and bounds. I see a discipline which is instilled in a loving manner. I see students Who love to read in their free time. I see programs in place that challenge our kids to read more. I see new leadership in our Assistant Principal who loves the kids and Is always available. I have reached her at school at 6:30 am and at 6pm. The dedication Of Mrs. Wallace has inspired me as a parent to volunteer more. With parental involvement, And a staff of dedicated individuals, both with the single goal that is our children's success, there can only be a healthy, happy, and successful future!
I LOVE this school! Each and every year the staff AMAZES me! This past summer the whole staff volunteered their time to take leadership courses and become a Leader in Me school. They CHOSE to do this on their OWN time without payment. Now I don't know about you, but this says a lot to me. This staff is truly dedicated to our children! The communication between parent and teacher is exceptional (this is HUGE to me)! In an email from one of my child's teacher it read that not every child will have the same homework because every child is different. I can't even begin to tell you how happy that makes me. It just proves that there are still great teachers out there that still look at each child individually and teach them at their own pace! I am a proud parent of Neidig Elementary!
This school has greatly improved since the new principal came aboard. Teachers and staff are friendly, dedicated and really do care about your child. Two of my kids attend Neidig and they love it. Their teachers have been great.
This school has only gotten worse. The pricnipal leadership is awful. Behavior issues abound and swept under the rug. It was rated a 4 two years ago and has gone down. There are a few teachers who are committed but most not. Parent involvment is almost non-existent. This school doesn't need work it needs an OVER-HAUL!
