I've had three kids go through five points west and overall it's a very good school. Most of the teachers my children had were outstanding a few were average and one was a dud. The reason I scored Principal Leadership low is that our repeated attempts to address issues with the dud teacher seemed to fall on deaf ears. I just pray the next levy passes so we can keep class sizes reasonable.

My child attends 5 Points W. We are unhappy with the way the school punishes the children. When they get in trouble the teacher has the child walk in a figure eight at recess in front of the children at recess. I find that embarassing for the child and unusual as well. I have also had problems with the school not sending notes home with my child when he gets in troublem or 'flips a card.' How as a parent are we supposed to correct the problem if we don't know what he/she is doing wrong? Overall I am dissatisfied with the quality of the staff.
We love Five Points. My daughter is lucky enough to have Mrs. Bennett who is a WONDERFUL teacher. Very happy with this school and I am confused as to why other parents rated it lower without any comment as to why.
