I would not recommend to enroll your child in this school. If you are a parent who is involved in your childs life and care for your childs well being I would not encourage you to bring your child to this school. They ok bullying, they do not have any resolution to kids hitting your child repeatedly, assaulting your child. I have spoke with numerous parents who kids have been punched, kicked, pushed down, inappropriately touched by other students in their class/ school for the school to try and down play the real problem and disregard the parents concern. The principal just takes notes does not show any sympathy, more like a robot. Your child will be a human punching bag for kids with emotional problems and the school down plays it, does not even tell parents most the time they end up figuring it out from their child or from another parent, they try and hide whats really going on. I would not even give the principal a point. Teacher- are ok. The problem lays with the prinicpal not doing anything about bullies.
Seth Woodard Elementary is an amazing mix of extremely adept, hard-working, intelligent teachers and administrators who also know how to be fun, personable and make learning what it should be -- an adventure! I love Seth Woodard and wouldn't have my kiddos go anywhere else.
Our son was in the PACE Magnet class for 3 years and Haley Murray is the best. Gifted children can be a challenge to teach, then to add in a class mix of grades 3, 4 and 5 adds even more challenge. She teaches with such a positive, encouraging spirit. My son really enjoyed his 3 years with her, we will miss her. Ms Arter is awesome. All the programs she coordinated we so awesome and fun for the kids. Pam Francis is so engaged and you can tell she loves her "kids". Seth is awesome
I love Sethwoodard. We came from an overpriced Private School and I would pay more for what we are getting at Seth than I would ever pay for 'private' school again. The teachers are wonderful and the staff is caring and attentive. I couldn't be happier
The quality of the academic program is superior with 100% of the students passing Reading on the statewide test. The school has Spanish, Choir, Band, Strings, Art and after school sports for intermediate level. Parent involvement is one of the highest in the State.
Pam Francis is a fair, but tough administrator who is not afraid of coming along side of kids who are struggling. The SPICE program has been great with lots of parent involvement and loads of opportunities for kids to learn about the world around them and to be challenged by the community and by the teaching staff. I would highly recommend any parent to seriously check this school out for their child. They are doing some of the best educating in all of Spokane. Several of their teaching staff copuld easily qualify for teacher of the year.
