My son I did wonderfully up til 5th grade, he gets here, and it all goes downhill!! I don't know what to do!!! Even the secretary is mean!!!
THE ONLY GOOD THING I CAN SAY ABOUT THIS SCHOOL IS THE EXTRACURRUCULAR ACTIVITIES, SUCH AS BAND AND QUIZ BOWL. THE QUALITY OF THE ACADEMIC PROGRAMS IS BELOW AVERAGE. THE VIEW OF THE SCHOOL IN MY OPINION IS TO TEACH THE CHILDREN HOW TO PASS THE STATE TESTS THAT ARE REQUIRED. I'M NOT SAYING THAT ALL THE TEACHERS DON'T CARE ABOUT THEIR STUDENTS, MOST OF THEM DO, BUT THAT IS ALL THEY WORRY ABOUT. THE TEST REFLECTS ON THEM, AND IF THE KIDS DON'T DO WELL, ITS THE TEACHERS FAULT. ALSO AT THIS SCHOOL THE DISCIPLINARY RULES ARE VERY LAX, IN MY OPINION. ALL THE RULES DON'T APPLY TO ALL THE CHILDREN. I WOULD URGE YOU AS PARENTS TO THINK ABOUT HOMESCHOOLING, SO YOUR CHILD CAN RECEIVE A COMPLETE EDUCATION, AND BE SAFE AT THE SAME TIME. I HOPE THIS REVIEW HELPS (IF IT GETS POSTED).
Review Central Elementary School. Reviews should be a few sentences in length. Please include any comments on:
- Quality of academic programs, teachers, and facilities
- Availability of music, art, sports and other extracurricular activities
