Imagine if all of the playground bullies from your childhood grew up and became teachers. There are favorites and victims. For some staff and students, this school feels like a prison. Kids are taught that life isn't fair...deal with it...grades are often based on whether or not a teacher likes a student instead of on the students abilities.
There is poor communication between teachers and parents. Many teachers are not held accountable for their actions and often act like children themselves (gossiping and playing on their phones during classtime). Kids complain that teachers scream at them, pull them out of their chairs, and deduct points off of their grades based solely on how the teacher feels about the student and his/her behavior. When this is brought to the attention of administration, nothing is done about it. Certain school administrators and teachers do whatever they want and single out particular students, and teachers to bully. This tends to happen to some of the better teachers and students and unfortunately many decide to leave because of how they are treated. My child has begged me to transfer out of this school or begin homeschooling and we are currently looking at our options.
Studies show that homework is not good for elementary school aged children. They are asked to sit for 8 hours a day in school and need to be active and have family time when they get home. Sometimes there is little homework assigned and other times the kids may have hours to do. On these nights schoolwork and dinner is all that they accomplish before bed.
The teachers single certain kids out, and when the kids complain they are told just to deal with it! The teachers don't know what their doing half the time they're teaching. Certain teachers favor the students they know the best and it's unfair and unjust for them to do that! The principal won't do anything about it, because they have "more important" things to do than deal with the students' problems! I personally feel that the teachers are under qualified for their jobs.
They are under employed and have 26 students per teacher . Very unorganized . Very out of date . Truly I'd like to send my child to a different school and its only day 2 of the school year . I as a parent feel that I have to do the teachers job . My child has allergies to many different things and they never even sent any type of allergy forms home . I had to go to the school to request them !!!!! I'll give the school a 1 star rating just because I have to rate it but my true thoughts and feelings this that the school should get 0 stars!!!!!!!!!!!
