I was really disappointed with my daughter's kindergarten year at Haywood. My daughter sometimes came home worried that her teacher would be mad at her and yell at her. She once got poor marks for behavior for accidentally tipping over a cup. An accident. My daughter had a bully which I got to witness. The teacher dismissed my concerns. The communications were embarrassingly poor.The teachers didn't actually grade them personally on their report cards admitting once that they literally recieved the report cards that morning and just filled them all in the same. It was requested that my kid learn her numbers from 1-10 when she could already count write and recognize up to 145! I got a call home for bad behaviour. There is no school nurse so teachers often completely ignore symptoms. The lunches are discusting and unhealthy. Many of the teachers I saw seemed exasperated stressed and hateful. I picked up my "walker " which is only released to a parent but she once got released with another kids' parents. Scary. The benefits of this school is it's ethnic diversity and the school really fosters open mindedness. They teach african spanish etc songs and dances.

The assistant principal's appearance is very professional however she lacks professional communication. Staff needs to be trained on communication skills with an emphasis on talking politely without mad facial expressions and body gestures. Students are dealt with in the same manner. Dismisal is very disorganized.
