No PTA meetings available. The office looks disorganize probably do to the lack of staff. The school as a lot of trash bags and papers rolling around I think they could clean it up a bit. I don't think kids are properly challenged in their education. I don't feel my child is getting the education our tax dollars are paying for. I'm going to look into moving my child to another school.
I have found this school to be a good one for kids of all types. Staff are always willing to make families to feel comfortable and to give knowledge of how to be more involved with your students work and capabilities. Yes test scores may be down a bit but the teacher quaility is 100% effort there! Teachers bend over backwards to help you(as the parent) and your student(s) to succeed!
While I enjoy getting weekly updates on my child;s performance, I am angry at the fact that my 4th graders curriculum is well below the standard for what fourth graders should be learning. My child is struggling in math, and it seems there is no emphasis on building strong foundations in learning. The school is more concerned with their 'Class meetings' and time outs, and less with providing a curriculum that is in line with what children should be learning. I am investigating having my child put into a different school now, and will not enroll my second child here.
