Well i think this is a great school! The school is new and improved. Also my two daughters go to this school and my oldest daughter is 5 th rightnow and ahe is really smart and im proud of that and the teachers are really putting alot of effort this past years but some parents may not know that. My little one is in pre-k and she already knows how to read and write words! I suggest u go to this school because its the best school i have ever seen. By the way. They have plenty of magnificent field trip but what i like most is that they have UIL. Wich is a competition they have .my daughter goes to it and she brings back home many trophies and medals!! So if u think this school is bad than yall need to clear yalls minds and relax because u need to change that opinion. Well hopedu liked my review
my son went to this school many years ago. there was no parental participation because the principal discouraged it heartily. After first grade I sent him to Lyons, which was and is a great school. But times have changed. Dechaumes has a brand new beautiful bldgs that the community can be proud of. I've heard the principal is on the job. Now my grandson is coming of age. If Dechaumes can get at least a recognized, I will speak to my son about trying Dechaumes again.
The school seems to be improving because of the posotive changes the new school prinicpal has made. There is some teachers that do not put enough effort in teaching the kids that need it the most. A handful of teachers are very good at what they do. My son attended DeChaumes, he came from an exemplary avance headstart program and his progress was very good that is until he attended DeChaumes, but I blame it on the teacher because some need to care more and put more effort into what they do for the children at this school. I demand that the school makes more changes and improvemnts so all of the children will be successful in their future.
This school has improved in recent years, however, there are still many problems left unresolved. There is a serious need for special education services. The teachers are very good, but don't put forth effort to work more with kids who need extra help. The accomodate to the majorities, and forget the other students who don't fall into that group. Lack of communication within administration as well as with parents. Low parental involvement, and when parents try to get involved, they are given the run around or disregarded. There are some good points, if your child is lucky enough to get the right teacher, as long as the child isn't in need of extra help or attention. Test scores are low and they don't seem to be implementing ways to improve them.
