I'm very pleased with this school. I have found the teachers dedicated and readily available when needed. My daughter has ADD and both admin and teachers were very supportive in coming up with a plan for her continued growth. When she started at this school, she was below her reading grade level. With their and her hard work, less than a school year later, she is reading well above grade level. When my son experienced continuous bullying by another child, the teacher and school admin acted promptly and effectively to nip the problem in the bud. My son is in gifted class and he has received wonderful instruction from Mrs. Jackson, dealing with critical thinking and how to deal with emotions. I feel that her curriculum is essential and should be taught to all 5th graders. The PTA is also well-established in the school, and hosts fun events throughout the year. Thank you, Waterford Elementary educators! I am forever grateful.
Good teachers,administrator, all personal care with the kids.
Some teachers were great some not so much. My child went there and was on the autism spectrum. half the teachers tried to work with the IEP the other half could have cared less. My child was bullied but he was told that he/she was tattling, or somehow all the blame got put on him/her, while the other one got away with everything. ALL TEACHERS NEED TO BE MORE EDUCATED ABOUT INVISIBLE DISABILITIES AS WELL AS VISIBLE. My child has a certain way of learning but instead of using it as a strength I was constantly called saying he/she keeps drawing (look up autism....he/she was listening the entire time), it is how kids on the spectrum focus sometimes. When my child gets overwhelmed, you CANNOT PUT AN AUTISTIC CHILD IN THE CORNER OF THE ROOM! 1-you have just singled them out 2- they are embarrassed, 3-their anxiety is not any better than it was before you stuck them in the corner. Academics.......my child does not know anything outside of a FCAT. Doesn't know how to answer questions unless they are multiple choice because EVERYTHING that came home was multiple choice. The list goes on, and I am happy to saw my child no longer goes there or Discovery middle school which I hear is not any better with bullying. I hear Avalon has good schools, and Sunrise had good reviews and they are in the same zoning as Waterford. Do your homework before sending your kids to this school. And if they have any kind of disability, please go somewhere else if you want was is best for your kid to succeed
Excellent work from teachers And staff in general.
