  • Reviewed by Parent/Guardian on September 10, 2009

  • I would like to add a review to this school's program. They are very race biased and do not offer bi-lingual programs. We moved from Rockford to Poplar Grove and I have never seen the likes of this school and the way they want to disrupt and provide negative feedback about the children.

    You would think the teachers, (...)and other would enjoy providing a positive picture to aid in the child's quest to succeed but no. They would rather state the child is not performing up to a standard they say and hold them back or even treat them like they are second rate people.

    I have witnessed this twice now. One from my son who is White and Spanish as well as my grandson who is Spanish.

    It seems as though they do not have the time to help kids any longer which have questions, may need to have additional connections to ensure their progress. Instead, looking for the student that conform quickly and do not need additional assistance.

    Anyone ever remember what a teachers Jobs is?

    No-One Left behind? What happened? Is this not a public school funded by taxpayers money as well as subsidies from the government which money is derived from taxes?
