My son attends Pre-Kindergarten at Franklin Park. His teacher is Debbie Suarez. I have tried to be as involved as possible with my son's education. Ms. Suarez has always been quick to respond to my questions and concerns. She has always kept me involved with my son's class. The class sizes are small. There are only about 9 kids in the class and there are a few teacher's aids giving a ratio of about 3 students per adult.

Our kids are being taught to take and pass tests ONLY. They aren't being taught math as all the children are on different levels and the teacher can't spend enough time with each student. There is no retention in this. The accelerated reading program as taken all the joy from reading our children ever had.
