My son was miserable at Midway Park. I visited at lunch one day and very small children were required to sit in silence for half their lunch. Teacher's don't want the students to talk in class but when they should be visiting they are silent. It broke my heart to see my son so miserable at school. He cried every day. I finally moved him to a private school and he thrived and the tears stopped and the learning began!
Parents beware!! They have the school on complete lockdown, you can't even get into the office! You cannot walk your child to class. You have to drop him off at the front of the school and just hope they get to class safely. If they did go missing you wouldn't even know for at least half an hour. there is absolutely no teacher parent communication what so ever. There is no PTA. My husband and I signed up and had to pay $12 to be part of the PTA and they didn't call us one time the whole year. There are very few activities to meet other families.the teacher that we had for first grade was so awful she made our child cry every single school day. our child is not very sensitive normally but the teacher was yelling at him daily and broke him to tears. Our child loved school last year in California. We had so many issues here, I pulled him out for homeschool in the beginning of January because of the abuse and neglect of the teacher and staff. The woman in the main office always gave us a hard time when our child was out sick and the nurse was mean as well. Our son has asthma so he misses more days than most children and it felt like they were trying to punish us because of it.
a lot of bullying at this school and teachers and principals turn their heads except for favorites. New to area and talked to several families and got the same response. Teachers throwing papers at students because they did no understand how she meant to do the work.
The teachers at Midway Park have been outstanding for my kids, Ms. Sinha in particular. Unfortunately, the leadership in the school (principal, etc.) has been less than stellar. Add to that the fact that one of my kids spent ALL seven years in the school dealing with head lice, and I am glad we are moving so my younger daughter will have a better experience. She has dealt with psychological bullying since the third grade and has had her situation pretty much dismissed by teachers and principals. Some of the parents are HORRIBLE, too. Their kids are direct reflections of them, and it is not good.
This school has unfortunately suffered a recent decline in quality of teachers and principal staff. There is very poor communication between teachers and parents. My son's teacher is very inattentive and borderline neglectful. He is a straight A student and comes home everyday frustrated because of poor teacher involvement in studies. If you like to take a proactive approach in your child's learning experience, stay away from this school.
I just. Would like to say that Mrs. Tucker is a great Kindergarden teacher! She is very patient with her class & pays close attention to them daily & she makes frequent calls/emails to parents concerning their kids. Sincerely, Mrs. Walker
This school has always shown interest in giving my child the best education
Midway park is a good school. Some of the teachers are great. My kids loved everything about this school . But it is sad they we will be moving to a new school.
My son has ADHD and a learning disability-two strikes against him...he has been going to this school since Kind and is now going into the 7th grade...this school really took care of his educational needs and he has now against all the odds and all of the teachers he has had over the years made the A & B honor roll!!! This school really wants the kids to succeed! Thank you so much all the staff at Midway!
My daughters have been going to Midway for the past two years and I noticed from day one that the faculty made a point to make sure that they knew their students. The staff that my children interact w/ made an effort to get to know them on a personal level and not just another student to get a score. They made sure that they understood their learning needs and stuck w/ them so they could over come those obstacles. This is a great school!
We have had 2 children at Midway Park and have alway's had wonderful experiences with their teachers and the front office staff. We love the diversity at the school. All of our concerns and questions have alway's been addressed quickly. Both of our children were very happy there.
My son has ADHD and this school does so much to help him succeed. His teacher is awesome and always answers our questions any time. This school really cares.
My children have had wonderful teachers at Midway Park! The teachers and administration have always been very helpful about any concerns that I've had as a parent.
This School have vrey low envolment from parents, teachers, and faculty. No one wants to spend time or money with these children. No one wants to put them first.
