Our child is so fortunate. The Principal promotes not just an outstanding educational standard but friendship, accountability, and participation in the community, to provide a well rounded student. All students are treated as equals.
I took my child out of this school after my experience last school year. My child needed extra guidance and help and wasnt receiving it. I fought for it, unsuccessfully. I as a parent was fighting for my childs rights to be tested and was treated like I didnt know what I was talking about by the administration. This went on all year. Some of the teachers are very good and compassionate and I want to give them credit. Some of the teachers are very bad and wont deviate from what they think the model childs learning style is. My child needed some extra guidance that some teachers werent willing to give. Infact, one teacher lashed out at my child repeatedly throughout the school year out of frustration. I completely understand other parent reviews. It appears that another parent had a great experience with their 6th grader so far this school year and thats great. That hasnt been my experience at all. Ive spoken to a lot of unhappy parents whos children have and are currently attending this school. This school is not all bad. They would really do well to fire some of the verbally abusive teachers.
My daughter is in 6th grade. The school goes out of its way to inform the parents prior to the beginning of the school year. Parents need to be involved in their students learning. Some of these reviewers probably lack in that area and lash out when things don't go their way. I believe it's an outstanding school. Some of these reviewers need to take their kids out of this school and put them in LAUSD. I'm sure they'll find out it's their son or daughter and not the school.
Weve had a terrible time this year with two 7th grade teachers, specifically one that is known in the community for bullying students, especially boys. Unfortunately this year my son was one of her targets. She is condescending, she belittles, she humiliates and she secludes (there is literally a table that she calls the barn). This history teacher has been at Goddard for over 20 years, this is no excuse to bully. Another 7th grade support teacher told my son infront of the class that he is a failure. My son is distracted and sometimes disorganized but very polite and respectful. If your child is not textbook perfect for some of the teachers liking, be very cautious. Dont expect to receive much compassion or extra support. The principal and vice principal are new this year, my only experience is with the vice principal and he is a calm mediator and tries to please both parents and teachers. The counselor Mrs. T is amazing and is there to help the children, and she does.
