  • Reviewed by Parent/Guardian on January 05, 2009
  • Rating: 1 (1 / 5) Flag as inappropriate
  • My son is in Kindergarden and I am extremely disappointed in his teacher. She seems like the last resort the school could find and she has no nurturing skills for the children. My son never gets homework or report cards. I feel the only thing he is learning is how to color. My son has had some problems with bullies on the playground since the first day of school. Mostly I am disappointed in his teacher. I am strongly considering transferring him to a different school with higher standards from the teachers. I have addressed the principal with my concerns and he is unable to meet my request of transferring my son to the other kindergarden teacher. I feel the school should be more strict on the people they hire to teach our children. I have not had any problems with the staff in the office. I dont feel that my son is unsafe at the school.
