After all the news about this school which i totally agreed, we are leaving. Poor management on the part of the administration. To have peace of mind, transferrring to another school is the best solution!
I used to work in this school. But i never regret on resigning. Its indeed a nightmare! thanks to the teachers who show love and concern.Woai featured 'failing your kids' is really true. Not satisfied and full of resentment, the decision i made gave me a great relief. Now i can breath better. I didnt know that my supervisor attending classes during school days knowing its so hard to ask permission not to attend the meeting afterschool (which is sometimes last minute notification). And harass me to choose? Meeting or my continuing education. Fair? I resign.
My child attends the school, yes at the beginning of the school there were problems because the enrollment had doubled and new programs and trial programs had to occur. My child is learning and more disciplined then ever before. I am an employee and the school focuses on love and care for the children. And have develop bonding activities to assure that the students, parents and staff work together as a team. Overall I feel they are at least 80% workign toward a common goal. The principal and team works late to assure projects are completed in a timely manner. She distributes homework for the students to all of the teachers. She has her email available to assure students are meeting mastery. Also, the teachers meet the highly qualified and excited to teach their students. It is overall an excellent program in which Im glad to be a part of.
My child attends the prekindergarten and it has expand to 10 classrooms. The teachers are structured and focused they appear to love the children. My child's teacher is the team leader and she works hard. I like the principal at the school because the children love and respect her she stops everything she does to help someone.
The school leadership displays a love and joy for family closeness. This organization wants everyone to be a family. They participate in developing bonding parties and bringing people close.
I'm a administrator at the school and sometimes its hard to satisfy everyone needs and its very hard. We work to satisfy and promote all learning styles. Love has been the basis of the operation of the school.
I go to this school.It doesn't really teach us anything that we need to know and almost everyday all the eighth graders have different classes.They are so unorganized.They are not good when it comes down to giving us directions on doing our homework.I mean we don't even have any books because we don't have enough for anyone.Also the food tastes so disgusting my friend threw it up.Sometimes they don't even have enough food for all of us eighth graders we had to eat crackers and also they never ever have enough choclate milk and most of the students like that you know so we have to drink whit milk.Well im a student at this school and i really don't like it they need to improve alot.
In one word this school was Chaos. Teachers are told one thing and then another, and the school is left disorganized and filthy. Many teachers have to share aids (if they get an aid at all) with up to 24 children in a pre-K classroom. I'm not sure about the safety or legality of that. Teachers get no support from administration--working long hours with no accolades, only constant slaps on the hand for petty complaints. I would not want my child in this school for one moment. If I were a prospective teacher considering employment I would run past this school and never look back. I believe the state should reconsider this charter school and investigate the allocation of state funds that support it.
My biggest disappointment with the school is the lack of respect towards the few parents which are making an effort to keep the school running. There is retaliation towards concern parents who express their feelings with regards to how the school is operating. On few occassions I've requested to have an address or phone number to call the school board but was told I could not have the information since it was private. In my personal opinion the problem rest on the shoulders of both mom and daughter running the school.
I was an employee at this school and I will tell you it was a complete nightmare. The misdirection of the new principal was what caused all the good teachers to leave and never come back. The students were not being taught. The lack of the teacher's concern on their students learning was not there, unfortunately those are the teacher who are still there. All children have a right to an education and anyone attending this school will not get an education. I am glad that I am not there any longer. They really need to close this school.
I am very dissapointed when I attended with my sister in the graduation of Kinder and 8th grade. I saw the son and grand daughter of the teacher aide and secretary of the school which are on Pre-K level. They were given the privilege by the Principal to join, playing favoritism. How come the parents of Pre-K were not inform about the set-up? Any parents would like to see their child graduate even in Pre-K. Favoritism plays well in this school. I am not going to enroll my 2 kids anymore. I beleive it will continue to go on. I can see that the principal favors so much on these people around her. She should hear the side of the teachers who work very hard in the school not to only one or two persons who is not a teacher at all. We are out of this school!
I was disappointed, the administration was very poor and the teachers were always in a state of confusion. The principal just told me what I wanted to hear in order to keep my child for enrollment numbers. I finally got smart and removed my child. My advice is to just stay away, it will do your child more harm than good.
Bexar county academy has not meet my expectations as a good school. Homework is sometimes not reviewed. There have been fundraisers where I was not notified of the outcome, no letter sent home on the winners or prizes given. Field trips are not arranged accordingly. They send home letters of current events that will be taking place but leaving out which grades are participating in what or which grades are going on certain field trips. They do not properly notify you of pictures being taken and at a point I did not receive class pictures and was not notified of what the school was doing to fix the problem or when we should expect the pictures. To my opinion this school should not be allowed to operate if simple things like proper notification is not taking place.
This school is a complete nightmare. It is unorganized, semi-prejudice, no actual teaching is taking place as a result of the pricipals direct orders and at times I believe it is illegal and illigitamate.
