Great small neighborhood school atmosphere. SAGE grant means smaller class sizes (max of 20 for grades 1-3). Super impressed with the way Literacy is promoted throughout the grades and cross curriculum.
Not too satisfied with this school system what so ever. My son comes home with 2-4 homework a day and he's only in kindergarten. This is ridiculous. He comes home every day and tells me how much he hates school. Really? He's in kindergarten. He use to come home with art work or pictures thats hes drawn.. Now that he's in a new school he hardly comes home with any art work but work sheets after work sheets. I'm sure this isn't the only school. But don't get me started with the teacher. Lets just say the first 5 minutes of meeting her I was not impressed. She's was very rude.
My son is in the Integrated Kindergarten program this year (2008) and we're both very happy with it. The staff goes above and beyond for us, and there is always someone there to address any problems or concerns I may have. We love the diversity in the school and how many different cultures are embraced and taught.
