Atwater Avenue Elementary School Reviews
In the past two years there have been many positive changes and as a parent of two students in Atwater, I am thrilled about this. However, today, I sat in the back of a meeting regarding the implementation of uniforms. I was disappointed with the meeting because too much time was wasted on a subject that is less important than many other issues and because the principal showed favoritism toward wearing uniforms and showed tolerance toward those for and lack of for those against. As a leader he should have remained neutral even if he had a preference. Besides, the test scores have gone up in the past two years and it has nothing to do with uniforms.
I have a child attending Atwater Avenue School.
The teachers and staff are wonderful.
I recommend that all Atwater residents take a look at this
Atwater Avenue Elementary is a wonderful community school with excellent leadership, teachers, and parents. This year, I have been inspired by other parents to do more for my children and for the school.
We are excited about Atwater Elementary, the teachers we have met are great and the new parent group is very active and interested in participating with this wonderful school to make our kids' education enriching and fun! Should be a great year!
