Miwok has a new principal. Nobody can top Principal Brett Wilson. He was a good principal and a good man, something to aspire to be. The new principal does not seem genuine.
I just had one child finish his 7th year at Miwok! As with every school there are excellent teachers and those less desired! I have another child entering 5th and would not change a thing!Test scores have to do with diversity and parent involvement! Yes Miwok does have a low income population,but while that may effect test scores it does not reflect on the excellent teachers , staff, and PTA.I have to say that I have one child that needs constant help and follow through to achieve academics while the other does not! If you are not highly involved in your child's education do not blame the school or teacher, they can not do it all. While yes Miwok may be short on funding I have to say that both my children have and are getting a great education.
There are many outstanding teachers at Miwok, we have never been disappointed. There are so many nice families and a strong PTA. I hope to see more diversity in the classrooms, hopefully more people will be attracted to the opportunity to learn new languages.
Our child has struggled due to what now appears to be a learning disability, and the teachers are absolutely uninvolved, and unconcerned. We were told that we needed to practice flash cards more with our daughter so she could learn her addition facts, but little more. We were practicing, she was just having trouble anyway. The school never suggested testing, teachers were vague about her problems. This year, she gets a satisfactory on everything on her report card despite a clear lack of comprehension, while we get virtually no homework or tests back. We believe it is never corrected. We have finally taken our daughter to a doctor for testing, although the school is legally obligated to do it. The teacher is indifferent, and blames everything on the large class. We couldn't even get a textbook for her tutor. This school has poor leadership and more, and is making excuses - the tight budget. The test scores are not the problem, who cares about those. The problem is that there appears to be little guidance for the teachers, low engagement by the teachers, and the good teachers are there, but few, and overwhelmed by the lack of help from admin. Find a different school. Terrible.
