My son suffers from Autism, ADHD and Anxiety. This school has disappointed me greatly and for many reasons. I’ve taken the time to write this review because I feel it is important that people know how this school functions or lack there of. On one particular day my son had a melt down because he was unable to complete one of his projects on time in the classroom. He had been working very hard and was proud of his work, only to be told he couldn’t complete it because he wasn’t listening. His teacher tried to put all the blame on my son, leaving out the fact that my son had on headsets intentionally to block out sound from distraction so he could focus, that which they were completely aware of. He literally could not hear their directions and they blamed him, leading to his upset. The teacher was wrong but didn’t admit that was the main cause of his upset. I know my son and the story the teacher gave me didn’t make sense, so I got to the bottom of it. The teacher admitted that he did in fact have headsets on. There was another incident when I accidentally dropped my son off too early at the school, thinking it was an hour later than what it really was. I saw a teacher standing in the open doorway. Thinking nothing of it, I drove off when I saw him approach the open school door with teacher present. Later when my son came home from school, he told me they made him stand outside alone, in the cold rain, until the school officially opened. That teacher turned my son away and left him in outside! What kind of morals do the workers of this school have? They are very lucky nothing bad happened to him. The awful principle tried to tell me the teacher did nothing wrong and it was their “policy”. Simply Shameful. Most recently, my son made me aware that one of the teachers actually said they don’t care about his illnesses. It hurt him and that hurts me. This school is lacking on many levels. My son fared much better with Pemberton teachers. I am beyond disappointed and disgusted with this school. Sincerely, a loving mother.
Very small school. Everyone knows everyone. Teachers are great. New administration is very inexperienced. Poor communication between administration and parents. Average students do well. Advanced students are not challenged. Delayed students fall between the cracks. IEPS not followed. Physical education only twice a week. Students behind in foreign language/Spanish due to inconsistencies with teachers. Students also behind in technology education. Computers are outdated.
As a new family to the school we were welcomed greatly! Teachers and staff were very helpful in our children's transition. Glad to be in Chatsworth Elementary!
