  • I am a grandparent of a student at Watkins. I am not happy with that school at all. There are not enough teachers/ assistance to go around to help these kids. Some of the ones there don't pay enough attention to the students. My grandson left his expensive coat on the play ground. One of the aids saw the coat, instead of her getting it and taking it inside the school to the lost and found, she left it there and of course when my grandson went to look for it it was gone. Several times I have heard my daughter talk about issues there. Some of the homework you give the students, is not explained properly even the parent can't make it out. We should be preparing our kids for the future, also treat them as you would want someone to treat your own. I've never cared for DC schools anyway. If I had it my way my grand child would be going to school in Maryland.
