Arrowhead Elementary I have had trouble in K, 1st and already this year in 2nd. There is always work sent home wrong and not corrected. We do home work every night. Never correct or even a mark that the teacher has looked at it. Sent notes half the time no reply. Only time we know if they are doing good or bad is a little sheet they send home on Fridays. then we still don't know anything about the hours of home work we have done.
I am very sad to write this review as this was the same school I attended as a child and had great experiences . When we moved back into the neighborhood we expected the same things for our children and this was NOT the case. The staff was not willing to accommodate my daughter's peanut allergy and put her in harms way on MULTIPLE occasions even going against a 504 plan. We ended up selling our home so we don't have to pay for private school next year just so our kids do not have to attend this school.
The teachers at this school are amazing. They work with the children very well. They have made a lot of improvements to the inside as well as the outside of the school. I would recommend this school to anyone I knew.
A new school was built in 2004, tucked back in the neighborhood amongst the trees. It is a state of the art school with a new ball field built where the previous school sat. The teachers and staff are fantastic, the principal has been there since '89. There is 100% PTA involvement and great pride between the students, parents, and teachers. There are various fundraisers throughtout the year and fun parties and activities that bring the school together. My child attends the special education preschool and I have been very pleased with how the school has welcomed her and is genuinely fond of her and her well being. I feel very confident they take great care of her. It is an all around great school and one of the best in the city.
My kids have loved Arrowhead and so have I. We went from homeschooling into this school and found it to be a supportive and encouraging place. The kids are really learning and growing, all the teachers have been outstanding. We have put four kids in the school so far.
