It appears that reading scores are consistently depressed. The question: Is this due to ESL students who have not caught up with their English 1st peers....Or is it due to the rigidity of the reading approach? Something professionals should ask.
I worked at Wilson's after-school program. Although I only had first hand daily interaction with some of the students, I was also able to get a glimpse of the attitudes of the teachers, parents, and other students who did not attend the afterschool program. The atmosphere of the school is very welcoming and it appears to be a very tight-knit community. The teachers and staff were very friendly and helpful when it came to special events for the after-school program. I loved working here and would hope to be able to return again next year.
