Great teacher and staff! My child really enjoys it!
We moved to this neighborhood specifically because of what we read on this site. Our experience couldn't be any worse. Our sons kindergarten teacher was terrible and absolutely vicious. His reading and math levels were far above the other students due to his prior year at a private school (Kindergarten level). As such, he was bored. His teacher took this behavior personally and repeatedly took away his recess breaks and did not allow him to go to the bathroom when he needed to. As such, he developed bathroom issues that we are still dealing with. We tried to work with her to no avail. My son was terrified to go to school and appeared listless and defeated. He was no longer the happy loving child that I knew. Frustrated, I called a meeting with his teacher, principle and school psychologist. Although the principle was physically there at the meeting, she seemed like her mind was elsewhere. There were no helpful suggestions or any plan of action proposed. His teacher denied not allowing my son to use the bathroom despite the fact that she did it in front of my wife during a parent teacher conference. The only helpful person was the school psychologist. As a result, we withdrew our child from the school literally 3 days later and enrolled him in Montessori where he thrived. I can only comment about my experience regarding Kindergarten and the ineffective leadership. This is not a place where you want to send your child - unless you want them to join the military or work in a factory. If you have the means, private or charter school is definitely the way to go.
I wouls not hesitate rate Arlene Hein Elementary School 10/10. My children are thriving at this school and i could not ask for more dedicated, knowledgeable,.amd caring teaching staff.
Awesome.The principal is so warm and receptive.I love her leadership skills.The teachers are also great.The office staff are also helpful.Thumbs up. Mrs Aina.
