This rating is for the AdVENTURE program. Overall, my kids have loved attending, and I am pleased with the education they are receiving. Mrs. Garcia and Mrs. McMillan, the two veterans, are outstanding teachers who make every effort to make learning fun and communicate with parents when issues arise. The rest of the teachers, for the most part, are approachable and do a good job. Unfortunately the same cannot be said of Mrs. Edwards who, with poor classroom management and her inability to communicate expectations clearly or grade on time has started to pull the program down. I have been given serious thought to pulling my kids from this otherwise amazing program just to spare them the experience of her horrible attitude. As much as I have told my kids that they have to learn how to deal with different styles and that they will not always have a choice, I would hope that Mrs. Edwards rethinks coming back to the classroom soon. In her own words, she does not know what she's doing. Anyway, my kids will remain at AdVENTURE simply because my kids and I think Mrs. Garcia is the best teacher in the district, and we will keep hoping Mrs. Edwards moves on.
This school is well run. Coming out of elementary school this has been a welcome change toward the next step in adolescence where there is an expectation for personal responsibility and accountability by the student. My child has been thriving here.
My child attends the AdVENTURE program located on the Herman intermediate school campus. He has attended two out of the four years, and is now in his third year as a seventh grade student. The instructors and the program have been great! The only thing I feel this program is missing is the homework, which I I feel further embeds the lessons they learn. Nonetheless, I feel this program definitely deserves a five star rating
Love, love, love Herman Intermediate and the AdVENTURE STEM program! My child has attended the AdVENTURE program all 4 years, and has truly enjoyed every minute of it. His teachers have all been wonderful, and he has thrived in this environment. I also love the culture at Herman in general. The principal is fantastic and her happy staff loves her. Herman and/or AdVENTURE are my recommendations in the Oak Grove School District.
