This school is not good, I moved here in 1959 and all my kid went through the wonderful J.T. Stevens, I never had any issues, bullying and stealing were never a problem, their grades weren't either. Now my kids have kids, my grand children. I'm told they will have to attend school at a new school. This school is located in a very unsafe area and the parents are idiots, my grandchild complains of being kicked, he has had two coats stolen, his lunch money has to be walked in by me now, trust me you don't want your kid going to this school, nothing is good about it, I put my home up for sale that's I've lived in for 53 years, my grandchildren will be attending the much better Tanglewood elementary....
I am proud to be a part of the staff at HHP. We did an excellent job for a first year school. We were projected to be low-performing school, and our students proved that they are better than that. The principal is an outstanding leader, and the teachers are a dynamic team. We have high standards concerning academics and behavior. I can say with confidence that the future is very bright at HH Peace.
I wish I had never sent my child there. We came from a wonderful school, where leadership was wonderful. There is "NO" zero tolerence policy !!! They do not follow the guide lines of no tolerence to bullying ..My child has been bullied from from the start. Nothing was done !!! I believe they were afraid to do anything because it would give the school a bad rating. There was no way to keep up with their homework. This school is not a place for children to learn. They are not prepared to teach children in the proper way. The lessons are hard to follow, making children confused about what they are learning. They skip, where they can go back form one thing to another. Children need books to learn.
This school has been such a disappointment. Their excuse for everything is because it's a new school. If they weren't ready - they should not have opened! Our children are suffering because of it. We're not notified of failing grades/progress until it's too late. As much as we'd LIKE to, we don't have time to go to the school and talk to the teachers on a one-to-one basis to ASK for this info every 2-3 weeks. And we shouldn't have to. We don't have any way to track homework/class work. We're just expected to sit back and hope that our FIRST GRADER remembers what he/she was told to do. We have great teachers. But, they seem just as discouraged as we do. They are not given the tools needed to help our children excel. Even the drop-off/pick-up line is a mess and there is no one controlling or correcting the situation. It will probably take an injured child to get them to do something. The crossing guard even told my child that he could not be on his cellphone while on school grounds. He calls me to let me know he is out of school and stays on with me until he reaches his destination. Overall, it's just been a HUGE DISAPPOINTMENT.
I have been disappointed with this school from the 1st week. I gave them the benefit of the doubt, being a new school, but nothing has changed. My son is in the 2nd grade, and his teacher is not equipped to teach at this grade level. There is a personality conflict between my child and the teacher and they would not move him. The teacher was out for several months, my son did not get in any real trouble while she was gone, and the week she returned I received a call from the principal. I have met with the principal and his teacher in regards to not receiving progress reports, graded papers, etc and I was reassured things would improve (in the fall) and still nothing has changed. They have allowed another child to use his lunch card, and the ONE day he had a school lunch, they yanked the tray out of his hands because someone put his account in the negative! STAY AWAY FROM THIS SCHOOL!!! My child NEVER WANTED TO MISS A DAY OF SCHOOL, NOW ALMOST EVERYDAY HE SAYS "MOM, I HATE SCHOOL" It is a shame that one place could completely change a child's outlook on education. We will be moving.
i HAVE to say that I thoroughly enjoyed visiting Hazel Harvey Peace! The staff were amazing and Sheila Turner is a definite keeper as a Principal! This review is coming all the way from one of your sister educators in Toronto, Canada! I hope to begin a long lasting relationship with the staff and students at Hazel Harvey Peace very soon with pen pals!
