Agree but there is more work needed to be done in this area. Such as disciplined a student right on the spot when he or she is done wrong to another student. (Example) Poking another student with a pencil, that should be intermediate address as assault to another student specially when punctured wound is visible.
I feel that student should be praise and encourages to do their best but when student are loud or not listening they should not be punished as a whole class for a few getting way with not behaving. Instead those should be call out and told that they need to comply with the school rules. The Teacher should not make the whole class feel as they all have not followed the rules. Making remark such "YOU GUYS EMBARRASS, ME, I WILL BE ASHAMED TO TAKE YOU GUYS OUT IN PUBLIC" Now that is not nice.
There is one area were this school should improved. For example, during lunch staff should stop blowing the whistle so loud to get the students attention, after all that is their time to eat and try to enjoy their lunch. It should be a little more respect and consideration after all children's hearing are sensitive. I don' t know the decibel from a whistle but is loud.
I will like to say that a school is a good school when Parent/Teachers/ Principal work together for the benefit of the student, Because after all the student is our main goal. To have a student achieved every year during the school year it takes both parties in order to have this accomplish. That meaning to share work done on school with parent or guardian. Encourage the student to practice, do homework.
Overall is a pretty good school but the principal Mrs. Wheeler is horrible! She is harsh and uncaring. Not nice at all to the kids. It's clear that she sits on her high horse feeling like she is superior to everyone. The school nurse is also rude and uncaring. I have never met a meaner principal in my life. My son has gone here for 2 years now and it's been great all except when he needs to go to the office for something. His teachers have been great and the office staff/receptionists are nice. The cafeteria lines are insane though. If a child is towards the back of the line he/she may only get 2-5 minutes to eat before lunch is over.
My son started here this year after having a bullying issue at a different elementary school. He enjoys this school much more and when he first got there we thought the bullying had started again but we talked with his teachers and the principal and it stopped. We are happy with the school and knowing he is safe is great.
