Washington Elementary School Reviews
If your child is far behind in school, it is never a teacher's fault. It is your obligation as a parent to be the #1 teacher in your child's life. Children begin learning at birth. Unfortunately, there is a misconception that teachers are in charge of the entire learning process. As a parent I always read to my children, I always check and review paperwork in my children's backpacks, as well as make sure that homework is completed accurately. I make sure to first hold myself and my children responsible for their progress in school then the teachers. My children are doing excellent in school. Teachers teach but parents need to be consistent with their children. You can't complain or blame if you as a parent never sit with your child to complete and review homework, read, or ask what he or she is learning at school. Teachers can only do so much. Why don't we start grading parents instead? :)
I am a parent of 3 Kids in this School. I now realize that I should have paid more attention to my kids schooling. My daughter is in 5th grade and she is so far behind. I am extremely upset that I do not receive any support from the School Principal or her teacher. The teachers there miss a lot of days and just push kids to the next grade without any good progress. I now truly beleive that we should also GRADE teachers on kids grades at school. Poor quality education for my high tax dollars as a working parent. This school should be taken over by a private Investor!
This school has way to many kids. Not a very good school. Test scores are very low. My daughter was there since kindergarten now she's in 4th grade & the past 2 years shes had subs most of the year not happy about that AT ALL!! I think this school needs to be taken over by the state!!
