Finch Elementary School 5

My children have attended Finch for the last 4 years. I have loved every minute of their time at this school. The entire staff is supportive of the children. My third grader hates that he has to be transferred to a new school. Its not because he won't have any friends because he knows children at the new school. Its because of the rapport that he has with all of the teachers at Finch. They have made every event he and my daughter have invited them to. They take extra time with the children to make certain that the lessons are learned. They do not teach to the test at this school. They make sure that the parents are involved so that the students are successful. Thank you Finch Falcons you are the best.

This school is a very good school. Teachers are communicative with parents and well prepared to teach the kids. My three kids attend rhis school and they are doing very good in their classes.

I think the parents below are correct in that a school is what the parents make of it. As one of the minority in the school as well, there are benefits like my son standing out and getting to take a leadership role in teaching english. Offering Spanish to everyone will only serve to confuse the younger kids like mine just now learning their words. However, 4th grade and above would be great. The teachers and staff are very supportive of all of the students and parents. I help my son's teacher out with all of her projects so she can create more and do more for her class. The administrative staff knows almost every student's name and is constantly involved in the kids' activities and feelings.

With the majority of Mexican imigrates, this schoold rates on the bottom of all other schools in the area in academic programs, and parent involvement.

Finch Elementary is a very diversified school with solid leadership and committed teaching staff. Would like to see more extra curricular activities but that comes with more parental involvment. Overall I think they are doing the best job they can with the area they service. I do think since the majority of school is Hispanic that Spanish classes should be offered for all children.
