Open Quote I have met one individual at this school that is truly kind. She works in the front office answering phones and doing general office work. All the others are superficial. The principal is so proud of her PhD that she practically wears the diploma on her forehead. Lots of people have PhDs, get over yourself. Don't even get me started on the VP. This review would get real ugly real fast. Major issues with "loving the authority over other adults" a bit much.
Most (not all) of the teachers are so worried about fitting into the cliques that they lose sight of why they are there. They are so into what they wear and how they appear that it is sad.
I can't tell you how many times I have been treated rudely and stared at because of me being able to show up for lunch as often as I do. And don't you dare wear clothes that fit if you have a nice body. Wear baggy or be hated.
If you want to like the school... Don't get involved in anything because the instant that you get to know most of them, you'll regret the choice to have donated your time in the first place.
The school is a Title 1 school not a School of Excellence. If you value the ability to have your child in true advanced programs take them somewhere else. There are no set guidelines to enter as advanced at this school. I was told one year that there wasn't enough ROOM to have my daughter in the program. ENOUGH ROOM? Are you joking me? This is the inverse of "no child left behind". The Accelerated Program is a joke. No matter if your child is a genius and blew away the test scores, if she is not "ready" for the program, they will not let her in. I was also told this as another reason she wasn't in. What does "ready" mean? How does one become ready for the program aside from acing the test? Good behavior? How about green everyday. Good grades? How about 95-100 on everything. I am pretty sure "not ready" means, "We don't like your Mom".
I think the brilliant children who test high should have teachers who will push them to the next level. Teachers who can reach inside and pull the child's interest into another world of learning. Teachers who are gifted.
This school doesn't have that in Gifted. It barely has it in the regular classroom.
This is my opinion of the place, people, and education environment. None of which are upper scale.
You know what is sad... they will all probably know exactly who wrote this review because it has good grammar and is articulate. Written by someone with a PhD perhaps? Maybe just a genius in disguise. Close Quote

Open Quote My oldest child attended this school for Kindergarten and First Grade. Upon completion of First Grade my husband and I decided it would be in our child's best interest if he was home schooled. Our son was a spirited child, and had a hard time staying in his seat. Rather than trying to work with him, he was isolated from the rest of the class, and his teachers still tried to mold him into a 'model student' who would sit quietly and get all of his work done in a timely manner.

I was called to the principal's office to discuss my child's behavior, and best suggestion she had was to get my child to a doctor so the he could be medicated because he displayed all the symptoms of ADHD. While that may be true, I had already reminded her and the child's teacher that we were working on his diet, and his behavior at home. We had asked several times to understand better how the classroom behavior charts worked so that we could attempt to do the same at home to maybe help our child understand better.

In the end, the school was unwilling to help us, but more than willing to suggest medicating our child. We removed him from the school, successfully home schooled for two years. When the child asked to go back to school, we chose one out of district and have been much, much happier. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
