Better schools in the district. This just happens to be the worst one. I went to William Faria Elementary, and I thought there was too much homework. There is just too less. Not preparing us for high school.
A very good school but need to improve in teacher training.
It is an okay school, but the teachers don’t care about what the students do. The idea of a block day is pretty dumb. The kids swear and the teachers have no idea. Older kids bull the younger kids, and the teachers have no idea.
After 2 years at this school my daughter begged me to be homeschooled. There is a lot of busy work. They rush from class to class every 55 minutes, minus the block day and SS/LA. PE is extremely stressful and not at all reasonable, bordering dangerous (such as running 1 & 2 miles without proper warm up/cool down only once a week and including in very hot weather and sun). Numerous times my daughter came flustered on the border of throw up after 1pm PE class at over 90 degrees weather. There are no lockers other than PE so kids drag a heavy backpack all day. There is a long line at cafeteria for food and sometimes no food left, I had,to,contact cafeteria services at the district and request to increase quantities. In 6th grade there are no real electives, they get rotating wheel, if you don't like choice, too bad. I really dislike the size of the school. Socially it is also very challenging, kids socialize mainly by race group, unfortunately. All together I was very disappointed. It is a factory of grades and homework. My daughter,was very interested in science but complained,there wasn't enough time to complete project she was really interested in. Tests, quizzes, grades, homework. We barely saw her after school she'd sit for at least 1.5-2 hours if not more with homework. She wasn't thrilled with friendships, to say the least. Since there is no play ground she didn't have anything to do, only boys were shooting hoops and she didn't feel comfortable joining,them. Language instruction was mediocre. She took French in 7th grade and the level was awful in my opinion. No grammar and very little vocabulary after the year, and very little homework. I am considering other choices for my current 5th grader.
