Things have gotten worse every year. There has been an increase of local families choosing private school instead.
Great school with small community feel The teacher and staff are very courteous and caring
I disagree with the last comment. My child was challenged in 4th grade while another child of mine with the same teacher who struggles in certain areas gained the self-confidence to do his best. Both of my children make honor roll now and I thank their 4th grade teacher often. Without the connection or being seen as two different children, I do not think they would be doing as well as they are. I am proud to be a parent at Van Meter and proud of the teachers they have had, especially their 4th grade teacher. You cannot group all teachers and students into one group, each person is different, Mrs. Adona was great at treating each child as an individual and made herself present and available at all times. I do believe the leadership and lack of parent involvement in particular classes is starting to affect our school this year.
The school is NOT as good as others at the same score level. Kids are not learning at their best. They teach kids across the whole grade the same material (teacher using the same material and the same homework). There is no individual things that they would do for the kids. If your kids are more advance in math, expect he/she will get super bored at their math class. My kids finish their math work early, and end up reading their books during math class. Express several times to the teacher (I am not the only parents complaining). They do not foster kids at their levels, which is very disappointing to me (seen this for 2nd, 3rd, and 4th grade)..At the end of the 5th grade, the kids might be just leveled to the middle. The exploding in housing development will just make things worse. I could not believe that people will pay the high housing price for this school now. The new principle, not impressed. We missed the old Principle very much. She is kind and caring about kids. Greeting every kids in the morning and know their names.
