The teachers here are passionate; however, the leadership is lacking. There are no funds to this school and parents are asked to donate to the class and to the schools otherwise programs will be cut and field trips will be cancel. The fields trips are either to the Jr High nearby or to the pond at Lake Elizabeth which are not memorable experiences for the kids. The principal would rather build a gate for the teachers parking lot than to fund the school programs, field trips, or better facilities for the kids such as a roof over their heads when they eat lunch so they would be away from the sun and the bees. When asked why they can't fund for field trips, her response was "there is no money for the bus". When we pressed on why there are no money for the schools when other schools nearby have multiple field trips or assemblies, she said that all the schools are funded differently and Chadbourne didn't get the money. The rating for this school went from a 10 to a 8 under her watch. I have two kids here and I am thinking of pulling them out. Everything is relied on volunteers and parents donations. It is time to put the kids back into the priority and give them an elementary experience that they deserve!
