Great all around.... honestly it doesn't get any better.
The teachers are teaching what they are supposed to and the kids are learning. As long as your child fits into the mold then it is fine. If your child needs any special attention or assistance, then you will not be happy. I think I even questioned why some of the people decided to work with children in the first place.
Sickles is more than a school, it's a learning experience focused on developing kind, compassionate, confident learners. The school leadership and teachers, together with amazing PTA volunteers work so well together to create a fully rounded out curriculum that is challenging and fun at the same time. Communication with parents is fantastic and the school and district leadership is incredibly responsive to parent concerns. Our principal knows and greets every student by name and is outside rain, snow and shine with a smile helping kids into the school. We've been in the school system for 3 years and every year gets better. Aging out of Sickles certainly is bittersweet ! On to Knollwood!
This is an excellent school. My oldest has just moved up to the middle school and my two youngest are still in Sickles. My oldest entered the school in kindergarten, so my experience with the school goes back to fall 2009. The complaints about the engagement or approachability of the administration, in other reviews here, seem very foreign to me. Similarly, I'm suspicious of the recurring complaints about the everyday math curricula. I sit with my kids during their homework most nights of the week, and I'm impressed by that program. My kids have an intuitive sense of math concepts that I attribute to that program. The bottom line is that my kids head out to Sickles excited for the day, for real, and they come home better educated, every day from a place that I know first-hand to be encouraging, warm and mission-driven. As I think about it, it really is a model organization.
