I feel like there curriculum is not up to pare for there kindergarten and 1st graders. They do not even have agendas till 2nd grade I come from Dekalb county and there kindergarten starts off with a agenda. At this school my 1st grader did not have a month in advance worth of work? They did not receive any syllabus to know exactly what curriculum your child is working on on any of there classes for the semester. The homework was very repetitive every three weeks. They should be helping these kids be more advanced in organization and more work to advance to next grade. My other child is in Head start and I feel like he is learning more then the 1st grader. This school does not meet my standards I will be removing my child from this school.
