Most of the teachers at Nob Hill do care, and so does the principal. Unfortunately, one Teacher was all it took to move all of our kids into a private school. The system is not set up in a way that keeps the bad teachers out, or even give the parents a real choice. Here's an idea: if you have a particular teacher who is always requested, reward her. And if the other two teachers in that grade consistently have parents requesting a move out of their class, maybe it's time to replace them.
Nob Hill Elementary is the best school in Yakima. Nob Hill has been a school of distinction for the past two years in a row. Nob Hill has very talented and creative staff. The staff is dedicated to their students. Parent participation is high. The PTSA is very involved at Nob Hill and there isn't a day that goes by that a parent is not at the school volunteering their time.
