Grateful to: Staff member
Submitted by a parent · November 18, 2015
To the entire staff: thank you so much for what you do! I'm so glad my child gets to have this experience that I feel like so many kids miss out on nowadays. God bless you for all your hard work!

Teacher effectiveness: Very effective
Submitted by a parent · November 18, 2015
Wonderful teachers who actually care. Like teachers were before SOLs! I don't know if they have some sort of different training but it is seriously across the board.

Amount of homework: Just right
Submitted by a parent · November 18, 2015
I would say not enough, but I appreciate the child doesn't lose their whole afternoon. I admit, I dislike games as homework... They work much better than worksheets but busy days make it hard to do them with the child. I wish they would mix it up... more

Develops grit: Strongly agree
Submitted by a parent · November 18, 2015
They have done a great job at helping kids catch up who are struggling, and now they're working to to provide more opportunities for advanced students to work at higher levels, beyond the citywide p-tag/SAMs program.
