My son attended this school in Kindergarten. It was clear from the very beginning that they did not have time for him. He began kindergarten able to do addition and subtraction and read short books. When they realized this, they put him in front of a computer to teach himself. We discussed this with the teacher and she said that she didn't have the time to make a lesson plan specifically for him and that moving him (or just getting work from 1st grade) was not an option. It took about 2 months before my son, who was excited to go to school began asking what the point of going to school was if he wasn't learning anything new from his teacher and he could just do computer work to learn things. We asked that he be placed in the primary talent pool (like a gifted program from K-3) and they refused. We tried to address the issues with the principal but were never able to get in touch with her. Every time we brought up any concerns to his teacher she would promise she would work with him and would never follow through. She actually admitted that she used him as a helper to assist other children who were having trouble with things he had already mastered. We were able to get my son into a school out of district for the next school year, where within a month he was placed in primary talent pool and had a plan worked out so that he could progress academically while still filling in any gaps for grade level learning. He is now in 2nd grade and is thriving and consistently scoring in the 99th percentile.
