My daughter is going to to begin Kindergarten at Hueneme Elementary. This review is solely for office staff and administration.The office staff isn't very friendly. They couldn't answer questions I had about when we would hear about enrollment/teacher, supply lists or even the Kindergarten schedule. The girl in the front office list several documents for our enrollment packet and I found myself running home to retrieve the originals for her photocopy - always keep copies!The office manager would say she was going to call me back and never did. The principal couldn't answer my questions either. I ended up having to contact the district a few times just to get questions answered about the schedule! Seriously? I don't have high hopes for my daughter's kindergarten experience here, if even the office staff and principal don't know what's going on and lose documentation. Staffing issues always trickle downward.
My son attended Hueneme Elementary this last fall. His teacher is amazing (single handedly the best teacher he has ever had) and the AR reader program is fantastic. We moved from a school district that had some of the highest "ranked" schools in the nation. Heuneme elementary is far more open to parents coming in and helping out. There so many smart kids. His teachers ensures that kids are taught at the right level.
The staff is rude in the front office. They are even meaner to the students when parents are not around! I am glad I moved my kids from there. I wish I did it sooner. Some of the teachers are clueless and can't control their classroom. Other's are mean and should not be working with kids.
Worst experience ever. My Kindergartener only lasted half the year before I pulled him. Teacher was mean and unfeeling. The only field trip he ever went on was to the police station where he told me they put them in a jail cell and took a picture. Totally innapropriate for a kindergarten field trip!!!!! Principal seems clueless to what her staff is really like and the old lady running the front office is RUDE. I expect ' May I help you' when I walk in not 'What do you want.' Don't waste your time here. I won't even get into the academics, just look up the scores for this school and that should tell you something.
