School Reviews

  • Recommended May 16, 2011 - I feel like the school as a whole is good, but some of the teachers there are just that.... THERE!, and nothing more. My sons teacher this year was a buz kill. If he went down a grade she always made a negative comment, but when my son made a 100 average in a subject she never said a word of encouragement.Never ever ever not on one report card. She wasn't in my opinion a teacher that motivated her students, well I should say a select few she motivated because the other kids came home and talked about it. If you are going to play favorites at least be smart enough to hide it. Shame on you Ms. J. 4th grade teacher. - Posted by Parent
