School has pictures of very young students on google maps (pictureview or grap the yellow man). The husband of a volunteer teacher took these 360 degree photos in which you can scroll in and see all the faces etcetera. Principal and secretary got noticed to take care of it. Instead of addressing it with the photographer they decided to address it with google. From our point of view Google is well known ("googlization of everything") for a certain form of reaction in cases like this. Needless to say that weeks later the pictures are still online. School has some great teachers but is not a safe place, too many people with the wrong mindset. Needs to change, hence the publishing.
This school is quite great. My kids are getting along pretty well. Activities are diverse and well-designed for children.
I agree with the review below mine. We have been at this school for 2 years, this year the school is full (the enrollment on Great Schools is showing as 662, this is wrong and is in fact over 700), the teaching staff are overwhelmed and the school depends more and more on parental support. If your child has issues with reading or math at a lower grade level then help is available and support is provided. But should your child be excelling at grade level, or need help past 3rd Grade, then there is a huge gap and you will not receive any help here. The school really needs to concentrate more on lowering the class sizes, supporting the students who are potentially honor roll students and supporting their overworked staff. We are now considering a move to another school district, MDUSD is providing poor support to it's schools and really need to take a long hard look at how their "fads" are affecting our future generation.
I've seen a notable decline this school year in the overall environment. The school seems more crowded, morning traffic is terrible, the kitchen cannot efficiently process all children at lunch time leading to very short lunch periods (about 10 minutes to eat...sometimes less if one doesn't pack a lunch). My child's teacher seems overwhelmed because of large class sizes and having no help from an aid. The implementation of common core is inconsistent, and children correct their own common core homework that is not always reviewed by the teacher. Is there another school that PHE can model with regard to common core...or are all schools struggling with this transition?
