this school is ridiculous. They give out (minors) for literally nothing and after three minors its detention. They failed to inform my kid about a detention until she was already getting on the bus to go home. teachers give out minors for being "unprepared for class" and that includes not bringing a "planner" which they don't even use anyways. Lunch is disgusting and the staff is for the most part terrible. I'm looking forward to my kids leaving this school.
I have to agree wholeheartedly with that assessment. Management at this school really stinks. They are so afraid of being sued or making themselves look bad, they won't handle what's really wrong. The vice-principal is the worst example of "leadership" I have ever seen. The principal is even worse. The automated phone calls have reached the point of ridiculous and although they are now hooked up with an online tool for watching our kids' grades, not all teachers are on-board. After sending messages to a teacher about my kids grades, hoping to get some positive feedback, I got absolutely NO response. I can't afford to move or move my kid from this school, but I really wish I could. It's too bad the school district allows such incompetence. The staff are some of the worst bullies ever too. I will be glad when my kid gets in to high school. One more year to go.
We moved to get our son out of this school. The bullying is absolutely horrendous and the school blames and punishes the victim. They have not put my child on the bus to come home due to their mistake. Communication just isn't there. Disrespectful to parents, to students and to anybody advocating. The state needs to intervene big time.
my oldest son has been going to Lyndon Town School since he was in kindergarten and he absolutly loves it. My children love all the teachers and staff and are not bored with their school work because they work with them.
They have recently implemented some new rules that are doing nothing for the students. They issue "minors" for everything the kids do that's not just right and after three, they get a "major" and detention. Next comes suspension. It is more like a prison camp there now! My kids come home in tears, more often than not, because of this new system. We are ready to take them out of this school and put them somewhere else.
Has been an underperforming school for too many years. Does not meet state standards. In danger of State taking over oversight. Too many non-productive days wasted on fluff instead of working on the areas State says need improvement. Also ongoing problems with bullying.
My 6 years at this school were excellent. Teacher-student communication is great, and there really aren't too many circumstances that a teacher would need to talk to a parent here. You never hear about drug use by students, and there are lots are fun, learning field trips and such. It's just amazing for all age groups.
