    I am encourage that my grand daughter reads and writes well I give this school credit for her skills. I feel this schools need more resources and a new building. The programs I have attended have been great. The staff has been attentive to my grand daughter needs and have resolved problem as WIN/WIN.

    School #1 is a great safe school for my son. This school promotes no bullying and protect the students. The teachers are committed educated and give hands on lesson plans.

  • (8 years ago)

    My daughter who is in 4th grade has a total of 1 hour of homework per week. She has not brought home any graded homework nor graded quizes/tests. While they do have an elective band that meets 1/2 hour per week the school offers no on-location extracurricular activities. No sports no clubs nothing! The PTA has only a handful of active members/officers. There is no Brownie or Girl Scout troup at this school because of lack of parental involvement. Art classes meet every other week.

    My child has gone here from first grade through 5th so far. Up until this particular year I have been happy with the school. I feel this year that he has not gotten the attention he should have. No follow through on poor performance. Son has not been turning in homework on a regular basis and the teacher has not bothered to notify me.
