School Reviews

  • Recommended December 20, 2010 - This school places a large emphasis on academic success and has several structures in place so that children do not fall through the cracks. The effort on the part of teachers is exceptional to stay on top of both the progress of a child as well as their emotional health. Support staff and specials teachers wear many hats and there is a strong team approach to working together to benefit children. The principal is a great combination of warmth and community-mindedness with holding students and teachers accountable to a respectful and rigorous school environment. It works! - Posted by Teacher

Are the Three Rs Robbing our Children?
For far too long the American public school system has failed to address “out-of-school” factors like poverty and their impact on what happens in the classroom. As the nation continues to become increasingly diverse, many schools are adopting comprehensive approaches to education that account for the unique needs of students so that each child is prepared for their future and not just for a year-end test.
States Fight to Teach “Ignorant” Science to Students
Wyoming recently became the first state to reject the Next Generation Science Standards because of concern regarding lessons that teach human-caused climate change. Several other states have also taken measures to reject the standards, which has some education officials concerned about the quality of instruction students in those states will receive.
School-to-Prison Pipeline Persists Despite Local, State and National Efforts
Inadequate funding and resources for schools, harsh zero-tolerance discipline policies, police presence in public schools, and de facto segregation continue to create school environments in which poor and minority students have little chance of succeeding. The result is a continuation of the school-to-prison pipeline that has been commonplace in the American education system for decades, despite federal, state and local efforts to curb the problem.
