We have two kids at Linwood and a third, who is excited to become a Linwood Lion in the fall. This school has many fabulous teachers who love their students and work hard to make learning interesting and fun. The school offers after school clubs and sports as well. Our kids are thriving since moving here from their former school. As parents we appreciate the well rounded education our kids are receiving, as well as the emphasis on building good character.
Linwood Elemetary teaches children to test. Homework is minimal and as a parent I must create work during the week. The Principals, and teacher are unprofessional. The school holds back boys, bullies children and parents.this school has diminished my sons self esteem. They have told my child that he is not allowed to cry or will be punished. The teacher addresses my child with "What, what do you want" and yesterday made the remark that something is wrong with him. This school refuses to work with children as an individual unless they have a diagnosis and refuses to utilize simple practices to resolve issues.
Mrs. Renner was a teacher for two of my children. They loved her and really grew and developed a love for learning because of her. I saw no favoritism or burn out in her. She is a strong teacher and seeks out new learning. Her weekly communication kept me informed on what was going on in the class. I would highly recommend her as a first grade teacher!
My daughters first grade teacher Mrs. Diana Renner was horrible and very impatient, burned out, and played favoritism. She was not available to communicate with me and had a very disconnected attitude, and should not be getting no 67,000 per year for being such a lousy teacher!!!!!!
I am a proud parent and wanted to add to my last review on Linwood. My daughter is in the first grade there now and has another good teacher named Mrs. Renner. I still see Mrs. Painter also walking her kindergarteners in such an orderly fashion. This is a terrific beginning for children in school so that they have structured guidelines and respect each other. I am still impressed. A proud parent Starr
My daughter is in kindergarten at Linwood with Mrs.Painter. She went in with mininum knowledge on writing and knowing her name. She is already starting to read and write just by being there for 6 weeks. She is on the computer all the time now and has excelled tremendously. It is a great school and the neighborhood is terrific.
I have 2 children who attend this school. My oldest has just finished 3rd grade, and my youngest finished 1st grade. Both my children have have done very well and I am pleased with the quality of the teaching staff. My daughter reads at an instructional level of 6th grade. She finished the first four Harry Potter books in the second grade. We are a family of readers but she has received no other reading instruction outside of school. My son is following in her footsteps. They both had the same kindgergarden and first grade teachers -- a couple of gifted ladies.
