Zero, if I could give the experience at this school less than zero, I would. My child should not have been subjected to this Kindergarten teacher.
As a substitute teacher, my time at this site has been interesting. I've found the secretary to be passive aggressive; I don't agree with the VPs approach in disciplining undesirable student behavior. Coming from a middle school environment, he needs to adapt his methods to the elementary student's level of development. I am really quite disheartened, as I have bonded with several students and many of the substitutes I've met at this site are just lovely people. But when you feel a lack of support and outright dismissive hostility from the admin, it translates to knots in my stomach at the thought of going there. Yuck!
My 2 children attend Sunset Ridge. I find the school (staff & environment) to be one which welcomes parents and children. My children's teachers have been wonderful; I feel they really care about my kids. The principal is very involved in the education of the children. She knows the names and situations of many children. When I had a concern, she responded quickly, and she resolved the issue in a fair and equitable way, I am very happy my children attend this school.
Principal isn't strong enough to lead against rude parents and the school safety is a concern. Anyone can walk onto campus at anytime, seems unsafe. Love most the teachers and most students are great. Office seems disorganized- like lost. Problem students seem to get rewarded in the office while good students seem to be ignored. Office is chaos of students who seem in trouble playing and eating? PTA ask and ask for money but don't know where it goes. Parents don't help at the school those who do are paid- I don't think parents should be paid to help. Conflicts in class and yards aren't usually handled. Wish class size was smaller and that all students had music and art. Some good programs like science and pe.
