My son is in second grade and loves his teachers. They give a lot of encouragement to the students and so he does well withhis homeworks- does most of them on his own and asks me to check them for him. They have lots of exercises for homework and of course, I also buy some extra books for him to read and work on at home. He gets " Good Communicator" award and others. My son also tells me that they try different musical instruments in school and it builds his love of music more.
