Teacher effectiveness: Strongly agree

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: Agree

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 a little.

Stuedents are punished when warranted, but the school also takes the initiative to not only make sure students know what is expected of them, but why they want to respect and treat others right. I have a "problem" child, who was made to feel unwanted and horrible at her old school. Here, she knows there are consequences to her actions, but she is valued no matter what. Her behavior has improved significantly as a result.

My child is in her second year here, and it has been wonderful... This school has an amazing team in place. Considering the past few years have involved quite a bit of shifting, they've done a great job. There is never an issue that goes unaddressed, and the kids are genuinely cared about. It honestly feels more like a family environment, at least in comparison to any other school I have dealt with. Sure, the open floor plan isn't for everyone, and because of it the school is generally more noisy, but that's also because kids are moving, working, and actively learning, not just confined to desks. So for some kids, it could be overwhelming; for others, it's a dream come true. It definitely is for my child.

Amount of homework: Agree


- a
As much as these kids have to "work" at this school then followed by homework is almost too much, but I understand that you still need to keep sharp and the homework does just that. Not to mention the kids still should be reading everyday when they get home as a daily (to include weekends) assignment


Develops character: Agree


- a
I see the entire administration instill honesty integrity and fairness in the students in a positive manner.



- a
There is a new principal at the school with new visions for further success. She has wonderful ideas on how to make this school better for both teachers and students.

Teacher effectiveness: Strongly agree


- a
Overall the teachers at this school are phenomenal! You can easily see that they truly love the kids!


Teacher effectiveness: Disagree


- a
Need more training to meet need or a wide diversity of students. Many teachers tried hard but lacked support from administration.

Amount of homework: Disagree


- a
More homework needed to reinforce what was taught in class. Extra credit projects that challenged students would have been nice.
