Some teachers are EXCELLENT and others needed to be tossed out with the trash. It was a bit of a crap shoot as to what we would get but as the years went by the new principal hired better teachers and is working hard to turn things around. We had 6 years here and for the most part it was a positive experience. Do have to say though, my kid fell through the cracks and is going on to middle school with remedial knowledge of material, at best. I feel that while there was good communication, I was not told honestly about the full extent of his problems until the very last year.
Fanstastic Principal with amazing caring, although I question how well she can attend to managing all she has on her plate. Teachers seemed overwhelmed, yet push kids to be good citizens while learning. Very active PTA, but where is the room for creativity? Not much art at this school and teachers are overwhelmed with the amount they must teach and to too many kids (27 per class!). Teachers are highly qualified and want what is best, but can they do their job given the overwhelm? If your child has any special needs you must push to get him care, and this concerns me.
