My son attended the school 2011-2012. I was not pleased with the firing of the whole fourth grade team mid year (February). There was no explanation or plan in place for the fourth grade. My son did not come home with homework for the rest of the year & it was not clear to me what he was actually learning from the multiple substitutes thereafter. The administrative staff lacks organization. They don't seem to really want to incorporate parental involvement. The teachers seem afraid of the administrative staff and lack motivation for the students to learn. Teaching is based solely on testing and not for knowledge building or learning. The aftercare program is a mess. No one can ever tell me where my son is.
The principal and teachers are wonderful! They are already inspiring the children to want to go to college. Each classroom is named and colored after a university or college. The students are striving for the school inwhich their classrooms are named after. What a wonderful goal for them all to want to go to college.
My daughter and son have attended Truesdell. The teaching family has been wonderful. With my children going through a divorce and relocating they were open and willing to help with the adjustment. They keep me updated on my children's academic progress as well as their mental and social states while in school. My children are always encouraged to take part in extracurricular activities as well as educational challenges. It is a school where both my children feel safe and are able to be children. I would recommend the school to any parent that wants the best for their child.
