This school is a big disappointment for us. We'd heard good things, and were excited when we moved here that our boys would get a good education. Through 2 years of struggling with the teachers & principal, we've noticed a drastic change in both of our children's personalities. They've been fed nothing but negative feedback from their teachers, and have poor self esteem now when it comes to education - and they are only in 2nd & 4th grades! Especially the youngest! When we had a solution working (daily notes on behavior and homework) his grades greatly improved, as did his self esteem; but the teacher didn't acknowledge the achievements, and stopped the notes. Now his grades are dropping again. The best thing this school could to to improve is to loose the negativity - even if it means to replace the majority of the staff including the principal. Elementary school should not be like a boot camp with teachers yelling at the kids, yet the more we experience this school the more like a boot camp it seems. There is just too much negativity there, which is a good way to teach kids the "don't wanna" attitude. Unfortunately, limited options make it hard to find a positive solution.
My son absolutely loves this school, and I am proud to be able to take him there.
Frankston Elementary has great leadership and teachers that really care about their students. They go the extra mile to help a student succeed.
