  • We moved to this school district because of what we had read via- the net.passed on many great homes,based on the school.We wish we would not have.The school its self is great,the Princ. is great,the teachers on the other hand, not so great,there are exceptions of course.If your child is a puppet with no opinion of their own and is willing to keep their little heads down and do just what their told no questions ask ,they will get along fine.Our son how ever is a bright ,active and inqiusitive young man who has been raised to be out going energetic and cofident in himself.Our son can be some what of a clown,he dosnt always listen as closely as he should,makes good grades He can at times be overberring and over confident and for this we feel he was labled and unduely punished.example(in one incident during quiet reading time our son had left his book at home so he chose to do a homework math work-sheet,it was taken away from him,copied and sent home with him to redo,I was sent a nasty little note asking me to talk with my son about doing what he was told and not what ever he wanted to do !!!!(REALLY )) And the thing is he could have been disrupting those around him ,but instead shame on him he chose to do home work and we were suppose to punish him.I DONT THINK SO!!!!!!!There are so many more little things I could talk about, but wont who ever I will leave you with this If an educater you want to be ,then be one,and teach each and every child in your class,( not just the puppets)
    A very disappointed parent in Western Branch
