School Reviews

5  12/2/2007
School is overall very good. I loved the teachers in the lower grades k-3. However, the teachers have too many students. One main complain is with teachers for the fourth grade. They seem to be too overloaded and concerned with staying on a schedule to cover the materials needed so students will do well on state testing in april. Over half the class ends up not getting the lesson taught. Many tests are being taken over on several subjects. They are not reaching every student and do not seem to care (not all teachers are this way) School should look at highering more teacher to try and keep class size manageable. Parent involvement is excellent and they have extracurricular activities that are also great.
