Excellent school district, dedicated teachers, the last of the schools holding on to enrichment programs. Fourth through six grade are huge transitional years, and Excelsior has been a rich environment for our children to grow and learn. There are always teachers with different teacher styles, but if parents buckle up and work as a team, it WORKS!
This is my child's first year at Excelsior and it is nothing short of amazing in how well she is doing. Her teachers are involved and care about setting the right educational goals for her. Because of that, she is flourishing in the fantastic learning environment found in this school. Also, she found it easy to make friends and to adjust to the changes that come from going to a new school. We are very pleased with our decision to move to this area. It was definitely the right move for our child. Although I can see why some parents have concerns about the principle. She is not always "approachable". Or rather, doesn't always seem to be.
The curriculum is great and my child is doing well academically! But I agree with the parent below me, if you get a great teacher then your child will do well. Unfortunately if you get a lazy teacher (great thing that there are only a few lazy ones) then your child will suffer. Don't even think about going to the principal for help, whether it is about a teacher or bullies. She will stand behind her teachers even if they are completely wrong and when talking to her about bullies she will tell you 'thats what children do at this age' or 'what am i supposed to do about it?'. My advice is stand behind your child. Listen to what he/she says and bother the principal until she will actually listen to you and your child. Be the thorn in the side of lazy teachers because that is what they need to get motivated. You are your childs parent and you are supposed to protect them when no one else will. Please don't let the rude office staff, uncaring Principal or a few lazy teachers stop your child from having a great school experience. This school will continue to go downhill until they replace the unmotivated teachers and actually start taking bullying in all forms seriously!
If you get a good teacher you will have a wonderful experience. If you get one of the other teachers...... you are out of luck. Prepare to pay for a tutor and a shrink! It is a shame that our Education System does not have the power to get rid of low performing or lazy teachers.
