At the Daystar campus I was told there were slots available but didn't know I had to fill out the paperwork to get the slot saved for my child. I brought the birth certificate, SSN card, etc. and they took it but didn't give me the slot. Actually other people filled out the paperwork before I returned it, so I was put on the waiting list instead.

I was a teacher for the district. It is a great school district to have your kids attend. However, as a place to teach it sucks. The pay is low, they blame you for things that you don't do but the person you take over for did. They have remote campuses in dallas that they never come to. If a teacher has a question it takes forever to get an answer. I would not recommend for any teacher to work for this district.

They do have small classes and the dedication and communication of the teachers is good. I have their emails and have never had a problem meeting with them. Their principal is new and appears to shared with other campuses. I have never met her or been able to meet with her. I did meet the previous principal in Jan 09. There are no extracurricular activities, music or art classes, however there are zero gangs, my son receives tutoring when needed and as I said communication is good. That is enough to keep my son there for now.

I would rather have my child in public school! I thought I was doing a really good thing for her with putting in Shekinah. It was small classes so more concentration on the students and better communication with the parents. I was entirely wrong. It's nearly impossible to have any contact with anyone. I have had my daughter there for two years and each year, at the beginning of the year, I ask for each teachers information (email, phone) because I am very active in my child's education. To date, I still haven't received anything and this year is going to be over in a month! I bought everything on the first day of school and it seems every time I turn around something else is needed but the teachers send the message through a child and not written. They fail to realize children forget things. No more next year!

Extracurricular activities seem to be lacking. We have found the quality of education at the third grade level to be excellent. The school shows flexibility, a commitment to quality, and a safe secure atmosphere for learning. Standards are posted for all to see.
