    I agree with another post on here high ability learners can become bored at this school. Several teachers seriously lack enthusiasm. The principal seems receptive to parents ideas and the kids love him and are comfortable talking to him if they have a problem. They've put a huge effort in their anti-bullying campaign which is really nice to see.

    The school needs more academic challenge in some classrooms and differentiated instruction. High ability learners don't always get their needs meet

    We have a new principal this year who rose out of the ranks of teachers. She's doing a fantastic job--is very supportive of students teachers and parents. We've been able to look at school trends and address how we can improve achievement. I see great things coming in the years ahead.

    My grandgirl has Prader-Willi Syndrome and came to Namaqua 2 mos. ago. Before that she was in schools who didn't do anything for her and she was ridiculed and teased by her classmates because she couldn't do the things that normal kids her age could mentally or physically. She no longer cries about going to school and she is improving greatly in every aspect of schooling in that short of a time! I am totally happy about her progress. She is 6 years old but acts like about 4 1/2. The teachers are terrific and in my opinion totally underpaid. Her whole school year of Kindergarten was a nightmare to her because of the ridicule as was her 3 months of 1st grade as she was in a class of normal kids her age and she couldn't do what they could do and so she got teased a lot. Thank-You!

    As an alumni of Namaqua I have watched the school develop over the years. I have been pleased to see that it has still retained it's appeal for both parents and students. The academic quality is average but the student/teacher is great - very low! Parent involvement can be subjective but all the parents I know are very involved with the school.
