I have no complaint about "the amount", but the quality was definitely not there. Also, I felt the homework was lacking in supporting comprehension using variety of techniques to support what has been learnt during the school day.
I don't agree because in my opinion, the school discriminate on the basis of ethnicity, social class, and cultural background. As a parent, my child and I have been excluded in a very subtle and insidious ways. I had experiences with other schools, both at Loudoun County, and outside the district, but I have never experienced such a lack of empathy.
As a parent, I get a feeling that I am entering a "Country Club" not a public elementary school. There is an air of snobbishness, condescendence, and down-right arrogance, both from the staff and some of the parents. If you do not fit certain racial group, or income level, then you should not anticipate any respect/compassion from the staff, and sometimes even the teacher(s).
Seldens Landing ES, you need to become more inclusive, you're a public school, financed with public funds, not a private country club.
My children have been at SLES since Kindergarten and are entering the 5th grade this year. I cannot say enough good things about this school: a strong, passionate principal, skilled, caring teachers, a great front office staff, a fabulous facility, and a very active PTA. My children have had a great experience and I believe they will be more than ready for middle school after this year.
I'm a fifth grader and for my whole life I have gone to the same school , it never gets boring. All teacher's and staff are willing to cooperate. The principle loves storys and when you'r about to go to class she'll give a nice comment. I don't want to leave Seldens Landing. Honestly I don't think my school has to change. We always have a fun learning day to remember. Every kid leaves happy with a smile. Your child will love Seldens Landing
