Fishers Landing Elementary School
Grateful to: Teacher

So thankful for Mrs. Hiersche and the rest of the staff that we've had the privilege of getting to know this year. The teachers, staff and PTO have welcomed us with open arms, and go above and beyond for our child and our family.

Teacher effectiveness: Ineffective

Some teachers are effective but many would not be able to get through the curriculum without making kids do so much homework. The classrooms are so full that it limits the teaching effectiveness during the school day.

Amount of homework: Too much

The homework here is starting to get out of control. We suspect the falling test scores may have something to do with it, along with the growing Common Core hysteria.

There is a lot of emphasis on homework and performing well on the annual state assessments so that in itself requires a level of persistence just to put up with it. But the curriculum is the same as anywhere else so it will not require too much if your kids are relatively intelligent and developmentally on par.

Teaching things like respect mostly falls on the parents. But many kids are not held accountable in areas like this so there are several with behavior issues at this school that drain classroom productivity.

The community is very homogenous with a bit of an entitled attitude. A few parents are genuinely compassionate people, but overall most people here are focused on themselves.

No that is not an integral part of the culture or curriculum here. The administration is focused mostly on managing behavior issues and teachers are just too busy because classes are so full.

The teachers used to be very effective under the leadership of the old principal. But since a new principal Mrs. D has taken over, the teachers are not held accountable in the same way.

Way too much homework! The teachers rely on homework to get their work done because the classes have so many kids in each class. At least 1 to 3 hours of homework each night, the most is in the months leading up to the state test.

this school does not focus on character or emotional development in a positive way. The primary focus is on homework and test scores. They also emphasize things like attendance and following the rules, without consideration for the context or circumstances. But no focus on individual development in a positive way.
