I have a brother that goes to this school about to be in third grade that does not even know how to add 15 and above. When i was about to be in third grade I already knew how to divide and multiply. Yes, I know different schools have different policies and second graders here probably do not even know how to divide. What worries me is that, he comes home with no homework and he says he pays a lot of attention in class. So either he is lying, or this school is not that good in teaching how to add to second graders.
The zero tolerance policy for bullying is a joke at this school. I have never seen a more uncaring administration. I have had two children at this school. One has transfered out, and now exceeds grade level in math and reading. The other is still here, still behind, and being bullied to physical illness. Meeting with staff over and over has been useless. Complaining to the district is ineffective.
My child is in kindergarden here, so I don't have a ton of experience, but I've overall been very happy with the school. Our teacher is amazing, the principal has been very responsive. Drop offs and pick-ups go great and everyone I've interacted with has been great so far.Maybe it was worse before? Maybe certain teachers or grades have more issues. Anyways, here's to constant improvement :)
I'm unsure of what makes this school a 4 overall rating. When I graduated 8th grade in 1985 this school was awesome. I think the question now is how do we get the district to help bring money back to the schools to support our children as well as the teachers. If the some of the teachers don't care about the kids, then replace them with one's that do care. This falls on the district itself. Sorry for all the bad reviews, I read most of them and it seems to me that all the parents agree that this school needs help.
