The good teachers are few and far in between the lazy ones that don't communicate with parents. This school lacks communication, especially since their change in administration. They also write children up for every little thing they do wrong rather than disciplining them on the spot. In their eyes, especially with the principal, it is always the parents fault their child can't sit still long enough in class or keep their mouths closed. They also don't focus on exceling the children or their education very much either. While they have all this time to basically parent-shame all, they don't have enough time to let the children expel their stored energy (no recess, occasionally the students will get to go out, but this is not a daily thing) and only have school for a few hours Friday. While a short school day on Friday sounds appealing, go ahead and ask your child what they did or learn that day - usually it's nothing more than watching a movie. My child used to be an honor roll student with exceptional school behavior and excel in everything he did until we moved to this district. Now, he gets low grades and I get frequent calls from the principal (not really to communicate anything important, but instead to tell me basically that my child sucks and I'm not parenting correctly - no communication from the teachers, you'll be lucky if they return your calls and they will claim they tried to contact you multiple times unsuccessfully when you have no missed calls or emails). Newcomers - beware, especially if your child talks a lot! You will be parent-shamed! The only good thing at this school is the new school facility and the few teachers that really do work with the students.
