Proud to have my child at Myford!
Posted by a parent on 1/20/2017
My daughter attended Myford from 2nd-5th grade. Just as with any other situation in life, there were great teachers and there were JUST good teachers (just as there are great, good and bad bosses). I've told my daughter this is how life is, and to recognize the lesson to be learned from everyone she meets. Not every teacher can be your favorite teacher. Thankfully, she didn't have any horrible teachers here. I felt the staff (including a new princple as of 2 yrs ago) were supportive, friendly and always open to resolve any issues. The school has great academia, has diverse extracurricular activities, is clean, safe, and they promote positive children interactions to help nuture a fertile learning environment. I loved that the school was not only academically strong, but also focused on the children becoming good citizens of the world with respect for diversity, compassion for others, and a love for our environment. When I have to reflect on my daughter's overall experience at Myford, I have to say it was great!, as she academically/mentally/emotionally/physically flourished here and has many happy memories.

My daughter has been attending Myford since 1st grade, and we have been lucky enough to have had only positive experiences and assigned to wonderful teachers each year. We are looking forward to another great year as a 4th grader!

It seems like they don't investigate enough when a child is accused of something, such as saying bad words. On one instance, my son was accused of spitting, when he only made a noise with his mouth. No actual spitting took place, but he was accused of it. Since we didn't agree to sign their "think slips", my son has been accused of several other things, including saying bad words. When we asked my son at home, even when we told him that we won't punish him because of it, he kept telling us that he didn't say bad things. I don't want to punish my son for something he didn't do, but it seems that this school is based on "finger pointing witch hunts" and accepts accusations as evidence and proof without thoroughly, and properly investigating. One person says it, and done; Must be true. Our son is now considered to be a black sheep by the teachers at the school and are threatening an actual mark on his permanent record. These teachers are not trained to handle 5 year old children.

This school was an awful experience for my daughter. New teachers are not trained, chewing gum and very vulgar, talking about boyfriends and weekends. My daughter wants to learn and not be a part of a social club just for the teacher to vent about her life. I am not impressed. This school cannot be a 10.
