Absolutely no transparency , bullying and teachers who make fun of students
The teacher always available to communicate . Very responsive in email . Miss Stacy has empathy and truly cares about the students . Principal Barbara is accessible and takes appropriate action .
I think each student and parent's experience would be different depending on their expectations. I think if each parent at the school would be more involved with their children's educational experience they would have a better perspective of what it takes to teach, instead of complaining how much homework their child gets, or how they are not getting their needs met. I had an opportunity to be involved in both of my children's classes and I agree that most of the kids need more help than my children do. At the same time, I have seen leaps and strides with all the kids that I have helped. Instead of being a hater, why don't you do something about it and volunteer (very few parents volunteer), show up to the home and school club (very few parents show up to the meeting), do something other than being a hater. We are committed for the next 4 years and we will continue to make our community school a better place, because we do make a difference at our school.
I simply cannot say enough negative things about this school. Everything about it, from teachers to staff, from policies to programs, seems calculated to underserve and neglect the children unlucky enough to be enrolled there. My daughter reads and does math at 3 years above grade level. At Canoas her first grade teacher demonstrated alarming incompetence and took delight in first overburdening her with homework (~26 page weekly packets when other kids got maybe 4 pages), failing to teach her any of the information she would need in order to complete the big packets, and refusing outright to correct or hand back the homework after it was turned in. My husband and I sought to have our child moved up a grade, but the principal's slow and ineffective intervention resulted in my child being moved up a grade just in time to miss GATE testing all together. It's no wonder this is a failing school. They have failed my child on every level. No one should send their child to this joke of an institution. It should be shut down. Avoid Canoas Elementary like the plague, parents. Fight to have your child transferred.
