Amount of homework: Strongly agree


- a
In the lower grades, there is only optional homework: parents are encouraged to read with their kids each day. This is in line with the research.

Teacher effectiveness: Strongly agree


- a
So far, they have been all excellent. There are a few that are said to be just OK, but some teachers are better for some students than others.

We are in 1st now, and have been very happy since pre-K. Our son has grown so much, and the teachers have really helped to develop his skills and challenge him to improve. Moving to the temporary site was a bit of a hiccup, but now everything seems to be settled down and not much of an issue.

Handles bullying effectively: Neutral


- a
I don't know of any bullying, so I can't speak to this.

Supports LD students: Agree


- a
Like all DCPS, it would help if there were more differentiation, but they make a concerted effort to provide supports on the high end and the low end.


Effective school leaders: Strongly disagree


- a
Mr. C is a great principal. Responsive, organized, and a leader.

Develops character: Strongly agree


- a
Kids for the more part are well-behaved, and seem to care for one another.

Teacher effectiveness: Neutral


- a
had a mixed experience. some teachers are great and some teachers will not do anything, very average. the sad part is that you can not pick your daughter/son's teacher. if you are stuck with an average teacher you are stuck. and if a teacher is great then you have a great year ahead of you when your child WANTS to go to school and loves to do homework. great experience depends on a great teacher. and if you go to the principal and try to assign your child to a different teacher then no luck. you are stuck with what you have.


Amount of homework: Disagree


- a
if you are looking for homework that encourages your student to be better, push hard but still keep motivated and have fun at the same time then probably it will not be the case with math. I find science projects are good and writing are good as well. my younger one is in second grade and her teacher is great. homework is on parents though.

Develops character: Agree


- a
the teachers make an effort. some teachers are really great and make every effort to develop honesty, integrity and fairness.
