There has been huge positive change this year at Voigt. The new administration has made a huge difference. The teachers are caring and try many ways to get parents and students involved in their students learning. They have homework help in the mornings, computer lab avaiable for students in mornings, and many teachers work with students after school. I wish more parents would get involved and show their students their education matters.
Voigt I hate that Mrs. Nementsky & Mrs. Lunkin are gone... They were an Awesome team...I feel that because we have such A strong language barrier at this school...We don't get the communication We need from our teachers...I have had 3 children in this school and looking at Scores I want to transfer them out...If it wasn't for Mrs. Chavez, Mrs. Lieffort (retired last year), Mr. Hassell, Mr. Pratt (gone from this school) I wouldn't have kept my kids here this long...I love the nurse Mrs. Pat & lunch room lady Mrs. Patty...The kids still need to learn...Scores to low for me!!!
We have struggled with this school since the beginning. My son almost never is in trouble for behaviors, and is above grade level in many areas, yet the teachers seem to only focus on telling me the negatives. I've had to push for a more positive aproach. We had to change teachers at the beginning of the year, due to the intensity of the teacher's negative attitude. Their dual language program is very new, and is not being done right, yet. The classes should be 50% Spanish speakers, but, instead they are almost entirely Spanish speakers. I have yet to see any sort of clubs going on, and parent involvment is very low. Of course, due to No Child Left Behind and the fact that they have failed their tests twice, many parents who are involved, transfered their kids. Communication between administration and parents is definitly lacking. It's like pulling teeth to get any information. The teacher's are all stressed out about trying to get the kids onto grade level so that they don't fail the test, again, and that's all that they can concentrate on right now. The priniciple was removed mid-year, and communication has improved slightly.
I love this school!!! Teachers are amazing and go above and beyond! special thanks to Mrs. Katie (Le), Mrs. Chavez, and Mrs. Hamlin!!!
Voigt Elementary is a good school with great teachers. Although I agree there are some better than others they have one thing in common-the love of the kids. The administration is struggling this year and is apparent in the lack of communication to the parents and teachers however the PTA has been great last year and this year and is really keeping the school together - hats of to the PTA Board for all of the hardwork and dedication they give to the school, kids and parents.
Some teachers are better than others. With two children in this school we saw much different results. One had a very involved teacher (Mrs. Chavez), which paid off in that child's grades. Other child had a somewhat disconnected teacher, poor parent/teacher communication and little interest in challenging child's potentials. Through all of that, the second child still kept up a B average with the help of us the parents actually teachng her what she wasn't learnng in school. Hence, little was learned in that grade. On the other hand, administrative office was wonderful! They would go out of their way to accommodate children's needs. All in all, a good school!
The teachers work very hard to meet the needs of each student. Parental involvement isn't as strong as it could be.
Good school, Tachers are nice and friendly. Help kids in understanding...
Our child transfered here mid year last year. It was the best transition we could have ever hoped for and we believe it was mostly due to Mrs. Chavez (grade K)that made it so. We are very happy to have our child continue in this school.
Fortunately my duaghter learns quickly otherwise I think she would have had lots of trouble at this school. She started at Voigt in the second semester of 3rd grade. Her third grade teacher was excellent. Her fourth was good but lacked patience with the kids who caused problems. Her 5th grade teacher never gave any homework which you think would be a blessing but I believe she didn't do it because she didn't want to have to grade the homework. I very rarely saw any graded homework and questioned how she came up with my daughters grades. There also aren't any programs for the children to participate in besides Student Councel and safety patrol for the fifth graders. Overall this school is good but I would suggest finding a better school.
Overall, the teachers here showed a lot of concern and care for the students. Programs were great and kept the parents involved. Great School!
Xenia Voigt is a fine school. Teachers treat and educate each child as if they were gifted and talented. It is known as a POPS school, the anancronym escapes me. My child attened Voight for 2 years and made excellent progrerss. Her teachers were concerned and caring, and there were a variety of after school activities she could participate in. Parental involvement was not aqs great as I hoped for, but the school is in an economically disadvantaged area with a high percentage of one parent households. I did notice an acceptable turnout for evening activities and award ceremonies, as well as lunch time visits. I was very satisfied with my child's progress during her time there.
I have 3 children currently attending Voigt. My oldest son has had wonderful teachers and loves going to school at voigt. My middle son has not had good experienses. His firt year of school his teacher moved mid year and his replacement was not good. This year his teacher was pregnant and did not come back once she delivered. We asked the principal at the beginning of the year to move him and she would not. His new teacher is ok but doesn't really work with him. My youngest son loves his teacher and we have had great success with her. My experience has been good and bad. I just feel that the principal should be willing to work with parents to help their children succeed.
