Where can I start…I would rate them with negative numbers if I could…
Experience in the lower school: It lacks a quality system, absolute and utter lack of follow up on children’s progress, laughable homework which are never reviewed, lack of follow up on curriculum, loosen sheets everywhere, broken promises, meetings not kept, complete disregards for parents, etc. etc. etc.
Believe me I could write a whole essay on how bad this school is. I have a long list of failures, each backed up with hard evidence, names, dates, minutes of meetings, etc.. If you still consider punishing your child in this school, ask their representatives about teachers turnover, have a look at the contract, talk to other parents, ask the school how many parents and students have left the school… you will soon realize that the grand façade and iPads are nothing but a smokescreen which hides the worst school I have ever encountered in my now long and experienced career in education.
A last thought: Before coming to this school, my child was the brightest student in the class, full of praise from all previous teachers, excellent reading, writing creativity, math skills, confident, etc. etc. It only took one month for Woodlands Preparatory School to transform my child into a frustrated, emotionally distressed, reluctant to go to school, crying, and sad kid. Now we are facing the challenge of restoring all that was lost, paying tutors, using vacation time to bring our child up to speed again, etc. etc. Woodlands Preparatory School could not care less. They now have our money. That is all they want.
WPS should be banned from teaching. They should be ashamed of all the wrongs they have done. Most importantly, they must be made accountable for the utter failures in the trust that we parents deposit on them.
