As a teacher from another state and school district I find Falling Branch to be very behind the game. I was in a fourth grade class helping the teacher with a math lesson and I offered that the assignment would be more easily done by dividing rather than counting by threes up to the number 36 and both the teacher and the students agreed that they had not yet learned simple division. Did I say it was fourth grade?? Then my first grader has been counting circles for a month where she was adding and subtracting up to 20 before enrolling and ready/eager to learn more about money and telling time. Look at Great Schools for Northern Virginia and you'll see a large difference in the ratings. MCPS is broken and someone needs to fix it!
