Bishop Elementary School Reviews
my kindergardener is very bright. He has gone to this school since August. Although the teacher he has is very nice and has 2 part time helpers from what I understand the teachers are required to teach on the learning curve. If you have a bright child he/she will be bored and not want to be there. I get constant complaints from my child that he is bored in class and he is not challenged. This is coming from a child that loves books and learning. I think that the class time has become drudgery for him and some of the other students. Class does not have to be "boring", it can be interesting for children if the school system will allow it. I home schooled my oldest child for 5 years. Why is the district allowing failure rates this high at school. Surely it is not all the faults of all of the teachers. A better way to teach must be put in place. I see all of the surrounding schools tests scores are higher. My son is ready to learn, if only they would allow him to achieve his potential. Any parent who wants their child to do well should be either very active in this school or find another school that will do better for their child. I have already tried to move him to another school which was not permitted except to another low performing school. I am now looking into school vouchers from the state for private schooling. Private schools work for the parent not the other way around and it. Remember the state is required to provide a Free and appropriate education. If you have a smart kid and the school is not doing right by them IT IS NOT AN APPROPRIATE EDUCATION FOR THEM at a failing school.
