Grateful to: Teacher
Submitted by a community member · July 18, 2016
Our teachers worked with us as parents to help our child meet needs. They were compassionate and interactive. The support staff, especially the para professionals who support all teachers, are wonderful!

Teacher effectiveness: Effective
Submitted by a community member · July 18, 2016
I believe they would be more effective if they were given the opportunity to teach holistically rather than to the test.

Amount of homework: Don't know
Submitted by a community member · July 18, 2016
Homework cannot be graded so children are not always required to do anything. This is frustrating for teachers and parents.

Develops grit: Neutral
Submitted by a community member · July 18, 2016
The school is very competitive if your child is in the top of the class. If your child is well behaved and passes testing he or she can learn to just get by.
