Now here is a school that could use some help. It has a great group of people who have stepped up to the plate in light of an aging school and limited resources.
Pushing the one star on this school. Being someone who has experienced a 'good' school. This school lacks ALOT. The district in which it is in is not a good one as well. Also being a parent from a better school district. They are not competent in what they do. If you have a child I would not send them to this school or school district. Yes there are some great people who work there and try to do their best but all in all I do not recommend this school.
sadly to say i think that last year could have been one of the worst years to have your children attend snohomish elementary schools, i feel that alot of the teachers responsibilities were pushed away from the children that were there ready to learn and were more focused on the 'new' schools being built. i hope that this year now that the elementary school is built maybe all the other early elementary children wont suffer as mine did.
We've never been happy with the principal. She dismisses problems, and makes you feel like an overreacting parent. The atmosphere has always been great. The kids learn a lot, there are such a great network of parents ready to get involved. The staff is mostly great. A really good group of kids. I don't like the grading system (1-4), but that I believe is district wide. The grades are so subjective from teacher to teacher that it's really hard to guage where your child is at, and how much progress they are making. I'm afraid it's going to allow children to slip through the cracks.
Sadly, I can't say that I love this school. I feel my child has made progress and is at grade level but there have been some great concerns with some staff. Overall, I feel most of the staff is excellent and my child does enjoy attending this school. It is clean and the children seem to have school pride. Bottom line, academically this school has been fine, but the road to success has been bumpy.
My daughter's teacher has taught her to read and they are practicing division.She is really excelling. But the down side is we have had nothing but problems since the begining. We have reported it all and still nothing has been done. So is this really a great school?
What a great elementary school. The Principal is amazing! What a depth of knowledge, great care and understanding. Really supports the kids and the school.
