1 review for Enos Elementary School

  • Reviewed by Parent/Guardian on February 06, 2009
  • Rating: 1 (1 / 5) Flag as inappropriate
  • My child transferred to this school in Sept 2008 and his academic performance has declined dramatically. I was not notified of the school's failure to meet adequate yearly progress in the past few years - and presently - until well into the 2008-2009 school year.

    Despite numerous promises from teachers, homework is seldom given and written assignments completed in class are papers are seldom - if ever graded or sent home for parental review. This leaves the interested parent completely uninformed about the child's educational objectives or progress (or lack thereof).

    Several offers to volunteer my own time to help teachers (assembling homework, checking off on assignment books, grading papers, keeping websites up to date, etc.) have all been politely declined.

    Academic expectations seem to be low and inconsistent - at best - compared to the written policies.

    Despite their written plan for improvement, parental involvement opportunities are compromised due, in large part to poor notification practices characterized by "night-before-the-event" automated telephone calls or photocopied announcements and/or invitations to attend events scheduled sent home with students the day before the event. Parents are forbidden to "drop in" for informal observation without giving at least 24 hours advance notice.

    Numerous verbal requests for the school to evaluate my child for learning disabilities and appropriate intervention were ignored until I sent copies of a second written request to a number of school board administrative staff outside Enos. Finally - after 1-1/2 years, I got a response: The request was denied, explaining that a "progression of steps" would be necessary to complete before the initial request will even be considered. The use of the phrase "progression of steps" (in my opinion) seems like an unnecessary stall tactic intended to discourage this parent from advocating for my student's educational success. The special education representative I spoke with was unable to cite the location or existence of the written policy regarding this "progression of steps."

    Despite the motto Enos School staff repeats each time I call, I don't feel as though the school is "working together" - at least not with this parent - to "achieve outstanding results." Their "outstanding results" are a matter of public record. In my opinion, Enos school "results" are "outstanding" only in their consistent failure to make adequate yearly progress towards the District's already low standards.

    According to the teacher, more than 50% of the total in-class teaching time is used trying to establish and maintain order. The noisy, rowdy, often chaotic classroom environment would likely challenge even the most dedicated student.

    For as negative as this review has been, it would be inaccurate and unethical to omit the schools positive qualities:

    Overall, school staff members have maintained a polite and respectful tone.

    Enos school offers a variety of food choices for their breakfast and lunch programs and the meals are very reasonably priced.

    Enos school is centrally located.

    Student/teacher ratio. Classes don't appear to be overcrowded.

    Enos school staff seem very concerned about student's performance on the ISAT.

    The main entrance to the building is kept locked for security reasons.

    If this website would have allowed, I would have shaded only 1/3 of one apple.
