My child was bully verbally and physically by students. The teachers ignored it and the principal gave excuses. My child had a teacher who was continuously discriminating against him and treated him unfairly. This was brought to the principal's attention and the principal made excuses and covered up for the teacher. Besides this, their academics are horrible. They don't have a very high standard for their children academically at all. What my child is going through at this school I don't wish on anyone. His grades are slipping and he is starting to act out. I told the principal that I will be moving him to a different school next year and he said " unless you move addresses you are stuck with us"
This is an excellent school with very forward-thinking systems in place to grow each student at least a year academically. The parent with the student being served for special education has plenty of issues of her own, including the ability to work with professionals who are providing a great deal of support for all their students.
My son in in the special education and is getting a very poor education there. He is high functioning and very smart but keeps falling behind from his peers. The school acts has a babysitter not an educator which is sad. I have held numerous meetings and they seem disinterested,distracted and unwilling to take suggestions. It's sad when your son says his whole classroom can't write and that his aid is used for all 20 kids. They don't even believe in homework! Principal and Vice Principal are both rude! I'm definitely not sending him back next yea.
If I had rated this school at the very beginning, it may have been a lot lower. My child started kindergarten and within the week she was moved to a brand new kinder teacher. At first, it seemed unsettling but overall the move was very seamless. Yes, each teacher from my understanding emphasizes a great deal on behavior with daily behavior progress reports. My child had a little bit of daily anxiety about that but children need discipline to create a better comprehensive learning environment. This gives the parent a better opportunity to become involved in their child's learning and behavior. My child finished the year way above reading level and I am so happy with this school for that.
