Amazing school.

Title one school. Extreme behavior issues with little parental support. More time spent on discipline than teaching. On a positive note, recently merged with Cotswold Elementary School. A more diverse student and teacher body now. Only serves grades K to 2nd. Extra programs added, like Art appreciation and Spanish. Still receiving low student achievement scores in core curriculum at this time.

My son has a speech day and is only in kindergarten. His teacher's are annoyed that I'm very involved with our son. I only communicate with them via email, to make it easier for them but they still are rude when repling. After meeting the principal for an IEP meeting that I requested, she was rude also. He will definately be changing schools if this doesn't improve.
