- a
I thought my child would receive the attention needed to experience academic success but instead, he is just left to figure things out on his own. If kids get it, they get it. If they don't, they don't. Parents are required to volunteer as teacher aides, with or without teaching experience. I want a certified instructor with licensed credentials teaching my child, not just anybody from the neighborhood. Very ineffective learning module. Very disappointed to have my child lose a whole year at this school.

Handles bullying effectively: Strongly disagree


- a
Kids are left to work out problems or disagreements among themselves.


Supports LD students: Strongly disagree


- a
The kids teach each other. It's up to the individual student to learn or not learn. What little instruction from the teachers shows students WHAT they need to learn, but not HOW.

Effective school leaders: Strongly disagree


- a
The kids are there to teach each other. Teachers seem to be there only to sit back and watch, read a story now and then, pass out assignments, etc. The only structure and correction/discipline is done by the volunteering parents.

Develops character: Strongly disagree


- a
Nearly all of the students of all ages at this school are disrespectful and act self-entitled. They roam the halls, not watching where they go, bumping into others without a word of apology.


Teacher effectiveness: Strongly disagree


- a
Teachers seem to take a back seat while having volunteering parents take the role of instructor. Without licensed teaching credentials, parents should not be placed in that role. From my experience, parents are there as babysitters, with kids teaching each other.

Amount of homework: Strongly disagree


- a
There is no homework given so what the student learns while at school is it. If they don't understand something in the classroom, it's just gone. Homework would allow the student's family to help with the learning and understanding.



- a
This school offers an amazing community environment where kids are actively involved in their learning. The dedication from faculty, parents and students is unlike any other school! The education is unique and offers opportunities you will not find at any other school!


Effective school leaders: Agree


- a
There's a new principal. We'll see how it goes!

Teacher effectiveness: Strongly disagree


- a
Very committed and creative. Several teachers went to the Open Classroom as kids!
