No support for learning challenged students
If your child is gifted, they will thrive at this school. If your child is learning challenged, good luck. You will receive very little or no support to the point of having no other choice than to find a different school who actual cares about these special students. Teachers do the best they can, but the powers that be either don't care or don't have the time to ensure every child has a chance at a good education.
Unless your kids are perfect - it's not the right school. Make your day program is purposely pointing out how bad your kid is. Horrible school....
My daughter attended school here up to 3rd grade. My son started kindergarten here last year. My son was having difficulties communicating and behaving towards the end of the year. The school was not willing to get us the appropriate help my son needed from a special education teacher. In fact they told me they can't help him, and he should go to a new school next year that could. ... The school evaluated him with only 2 weeks left of school (not really enough time) and assured me that my son needed to be at a special school. They left me with an unfinished/updated IEP for him and a relocation school that was a 40 minute drive away for me.
Fast Forward: This year my son is attending Norterra Canyon school, which is close to us and a great K-8th program that isn't "special." It's terrific! My son is getting all the help he needs with just a simple special education teacher checking in on him once for 15 minutes a day with positive encouragement. That is all it took! Wildfire did not exhaust their efforts at all.
