You get nowhere with the principal, and if there are any issues with your child she makes it their fault. Bullying is a big problem that apparently no one sees or hears. If you bring it up and advocate for your child, she turns it around and says your child is making it up. If your child's Dr is requesting that they be put on a IEP and meets the criteria, they do their own testing and say the Dr has no say and deny the IEP. They put the child in a 504 plan but yet do not follow it. The same with my other child who did have a IEP they did not follow it and labeled the child as a bad kid. The child has been in middle school now with honor roll and no behavior problems at all! No credibility. I'm in the process of finding another school for my child not dealing with this school anymore.
Our child attended this school up until right before spring break last year. We were not happy with the school and 1st grade teacher. This school and district is not set up to handle special needs kids contrary to popular belief. If your kid is on the border of doing well or failing, RUN AWAY! We would have had to sue them if we had stayed in order to get the services that he needs. Mrs. Hreniuc was one of the few teachers that we loved(kindergarten.) She truly understood how to deal with our child's issues. We moved out of state and it was the best thing we could do for our child. Our child was behind because of Mirage, but caught up quickly with the help of a great school in California. Also, this school focuses solely on behavior and making your day. We had so many issues at Mirage that never materialized in California because of this system. He was a totally different child once removed from this system! Our child's teacher constantly complained that he couldn't sit still, but Mirage doesn't have enough recesses/breaks for kids without ADHD and so yes, you will have more behavior issues. 1 recess a day during lunch has been well documented in educational circles as not being enough time. Kids skipped lunch to play. Pushing medication onto a child because your school can't create a proper schedule to accommodate breaks, is not acceptable. Almost 7 months later, we are super happy we left Arizona and this toxic learning environment. Yes, there were moments where certain people were great but our overall experience, when put in perspective with a rated 10 school in California, is not good. We almost feel like our child's 1st grade year was a waste academically. If it wasn't for his friends and Mrs. Hreniuc, he wouldn't miss the school.
The teachers are helpful and the Principal is amazing. We were so lucky to find this school!
Best school for Preschoolers ! nice teachers, proper tasks and assignments, good students and teachers ratio.
