My son with ADHD and 504 plan just graduated WO. He was there 6 years. The staff, teachers and students all knew my son. Despite his rough reputation the teachers and principle supported him and trying to make him a better citizen. Instead of focusing on just discipline they also focus on how to make the situation better for all involved. Most teachers were patient with my son and went above and beyond to support his success. Safety is a priority and they take it very seriously. My daughter is now attending and I know it's going to be a smooth next few years. The school always took my concerns serious and made an attempt to resolve any issues I had. I'm grateful for the staff here more specifically the Principle.
I do believe the teachers have great intentions for the kids, and they all are very friendly. But I believe it is the office staff that has made me feel unwelcomed. When I have came in to pick up my child early, or drop something off for him, from the principal to the secretary, they give me the feeling that I am bothering them. They are the face of the school and they make everyone feel so unwelcomed.
This year is my children's second year attending at this school and now I feel my children's are more secure than before, because in the past all parents were allowed to school grounds now you can't just get in with out sign your name in and out thru the office. Perfect! I'm very happy with the new principal.
The kinder garden teacher is rude and has her favorites. She has little to no patience. The principal flip flops depending on who is around. The schools policy and MO make it almost impossible to get involved with your childs education unless you let them know ahead of time by calling for an appointment. They say you can volunteer to help out in class to check on your children but that is only if they don't choose someone else to be the volunteer first. You can complain but it won't do an good. They have a contract with the union.
