The new principal is not parent friendly or teacher friendly. No afterschool support for students. Most teachers are wonderful and care greatly about the students, but they are faced with an unsupportive administration.
Big Elm is a wonderful school. Never had I seen more caring, upbeat and excellent teachers in one facility!
The health problems have since been addressed, the school is one of the best schools in the area for larger schools. The teachers are committed to student achievement.
This school has excellent teachers. It is a new school & very attractive. I love this school but because of the health problems occurring there, I'd move my children if it were possible.
