RtI - Teachers are woefully prepared to help students with foundational sound/symbol reading disabilities. Pressures of Rti keep kids out of SPED- sometimes ok because the SPED teachers are prepared to teach reading even worse. Everything is comprehension - great if you can read the words. SPED teachers are certif. cross categories/ inclusion rules Teachers aren't supported with PD/ silo's continue / parents not educated well- they have to turn into educational professionals to stand a chance Co-morbidity not really addressed- needs identified kept to a minimum and thus interventions/ support/ and asstve. tech. kept to a minimum. Teachers know little about Exec. Functioning. The role that SLP support for foundational reading acquisition not understood nor aligned into IEP's . These comments every WI school.- MDIH is a strong Econ. Educational area of WI- tchrs, admin, and SBoard think it stands apart from most other schools in WI- as they seem to do well comparatively - yet - All of WI is doing a dismel job for all kids who learn differently- 4th grade NAEP: WI dis. students : 7% read proficiently- MDIH is no difft.
I love Maple Dale school because of its teaching abilitys. How they work well w/ the children and the parents. How I am able to go on and look @ my daughters assignments and continuous grades. They take the time out w/ the students...
This school is perfect for my child! Lots of parent envolvement so I know whats happening around in the school. Great leadership, Fantastic music programs, and more. This school is amazing!
this school is average because students there are pretty fair and the higher level of smartness kids are waiting for the lower level kids. And I really think that is unfair. Plus the teachers really dont care about the students, unlike some other schools. And I am very concerned with that.
Outstanding on every level. The exceptional attitute/effort/success given to each student is individual and top notch!! Treat yourself and just enter the building and you will sense the energy of learning and growing-in action.
'I am throughly astounded at the excellence this school demands from its students and teachers night in and night out, despite many personnel losses and an onslaught of budget cuts. Teachers and staff, new and old quickly learn that to teach at what is considered the pinnacle of middle schools, in terms of excellence, that they must continually go out of their way to ensure a top education. These students have and always will continue to excel once they step outside of the Maple Dale (MD) hallways. This is a highly advanced technological and abstract school built for the very brightest, the cream of the crop. The school offers the best band class this side of the Mississippi and offers a Spanish class par none.
