5/7/2011parentThe principal is great. The day I realized this was the day some kids vandalized our home off hours. We figured out who it was & he addressed the problem personally. He seemed to truly care whether the kids were behaving off or on his watch. My child's kindergarten teacher was just awful. She had absolutely no patience and seemed completely lost with her class. She would release them from class & look like she was torn apart. On Field Day I went to assist. Her troubled kids were not aloud to participate due to acting out regularly. While my child was enjoying herself I took the time to work with one child doing his work. By the end she came up, grabbed the work from him, let him play & not once even talked to him about the punishment, let alone acknowledge that I volunteered my time working with this boy. She is up for tenure this year & I really hope the principal has second thoughts. I put my house up for sale feeling every teacher was going to be like her. It is unfortunate too, because her 1st grade teacher is tough but fair. There is a big difference between the preschool & the grammar schools here. I nothing but great things to say about our experience at the preschool.
5/4/2010parentI also give this school a 'thumbs Up'. My daughter has been going to school 8 for a couple of years (since 2nd grade), and what I really like is the dedicated teachers. Its good to know, that I can easily e-mail a teacher, and I will get a quick response. Also, I was there about a week ago ( my daughter was sick), and I was speaking to the principal...very 'down to earth' extremly nice. There is just one thing I would like changed..the school hours. Instead of school beginning at 8:35, why not earlier?? Those extra 15-20 minutes, makes a whole a-lot of difference, when a parent is dropping off kids at school, ( especially the little ones) and have to be at work before 8:30.
4/29/2010parentI love that the teachers are caring and my child loves to go to school every single day. I am amazed at how much she has learned in Kindergarten. It is a very special community learning establishment that has been around for many, many years.
10/10/2006parentI Love the Teachers that my daughter has in Kindergartner- Trailer Mrs. Grouse and Ms. Rosa Conte. My Little one was a student of the month in September. She is excited when she wakes up to go to school, I am very happy as a mother and parent that my daughter has the nicest teachers and she learners a lot because she comes home and she wants to do more work. Thank you very much for putting so much effort in the students. Thank you, Adisa Feratovic/Nikocevic Elsina Nikocevic's mom
