Open Quote We attended kindergarten at John Hay but switched to a different school following our experience there. Our core issues were:

Frequent screen time: at John Hay, our kids had a minimum of 30 minutes of screen time per week, often much more. At our new school, screen time was rare.

Tailored education: our daughter often complained of being bored, and she was. There was very little tailoring of education for students, they all did the same thing / learned things at the same time. We had to supplement her learning with additional worksheets at home, to keep her busy in class, as the teachers offered no solution.

Communication from the principal: this was horrendous. Very little transparency. Difficulty getting a response to concerns.

Mom cliques: The cliquiness was so WEIRD. It's as though we were all in high school again. Many moms I know whose kids attend (or attended) Hay felt uncomfortable with this aspect of the school (these are college educated moms - some stay-at-home, some with careers, all frustrated by the cattiness).

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.

About Immunization Rates:
Kindergarten Immunization Rates: This graph shows the percent of students in the school who have all of the required doses for the vaccine type for kindergarten entry (complete). The following vaccines are required for Washington State kindergarten entry: DTaP (Diphtheria, Tetanus and Pertussis), Hep B (Hepatitis B), MMR (Measles, Mumps and Rubella), Polio and Varicella (chickenpox). The data comes from schools reporting to the Department each school year. Schools report total counts of students based on each student’s Certificate of Immunization Status, which is parent-reported and is not health care provider verified. The goal line is the national Health People 2020 target of 95% completion for these vaccines for school age children.
Protected Students: The number and percent of students in the school reported to have all required vaccinations for their age and grade.
Students with plan: The number and percent of students in the school with a temporary approved plan for getting caught-up on required vaccinations. These students can remain in school if they follow this plan.
Students with exemption: The number and percent of students in the school reported to have any exemption type for at least one vaccine.
Unknown: The number and percent of students whose immunization status is not known. These students do not fall into any other category – they may be missing required vaccines, but have no temporary delay plan or exemptions. Students with no signed CIS on file are also counted here.
