This school has so much POTENTIAL. I completely dislike how the school is ran. I can start off the the dropping kids off and picking them up process. You only have 15 minutes to drop off your child before they're considered late which is ridiculous. RIDICULOUS. I can go on about it but I have plenty of other topics to hit. The picking up, is equally as bad. Either your in the school's property waiting for 30+ minutes or you're trapped in the streets causing traffic in the middle of the road. I can't say this enough, it's potentially dangerous. Something honestly needs to be done about that. Apparently they have been trying to cut down buses, which is inconvenient. You stress about students attendance and tardiness yet you're killing off helpful transportation??? Where's the logic in that??? Now to the fun part.. the teachers are cool. The methods they teach is not. Helping my daughter with math homework got increasingly difficult since they have probably the most ridiculous way of solving them and them needing to show their work the way they were taught. Yeah, I've never ran into this problem while my daughter was attending school in Illinois. But the schools out there are 30x better. Going back, I lose my mind over "Sight Words". First of all, what? Why? And what, again? Are they commonly used words??? No. They're just RANDOM words for them to learn. So why is my daughter stressed to learn these words when she can learn the number words, words that she uses everyday, words that she commonly sees in the stories she reads? I can go on but I'll stop there yet again. There is a lack of extracurricular activities for kids younger than a certain grade level which is kind of unfair. I understand there won't be any for kindergarteners but 1st grade and up? Yeah, unacceptable. Strong communication skills can be taught during that time as well as more discipline (where they have to follow a different set of rules), and they get to express themselves and truly enjoy their school and what it has to offer. Parents are not encouraged to stop in and see what their child is up to because "it'll disturb the learning process". They're not encouraged to partake in anything school related. There's no class holiday parties, there's no bring the whole class a snack and see how you can help out the teacher with any grading, or maintaining the classroom. But you get the gist.

Sure is strange when a child can't read a full sentence of pre-k words but has all A's every report card for over 2 years. Seems like something doesn't add up, and when teacher is questioned she just says the child is right on track, that's totally unacceptable and proves that someone is just pushing a kid through without recognizing they are far behind. A second grader should be able to read age appropriate material.

The life school balance is extremely difficult. To have a child stress so much about a test that they are physically ill thinking about if they don’t do well what will happen is inexcusable. There must be balance between allowing students to be children and making quiet soldiers that don’t speak anywhere including the buses.
