Forest Glen Middle School Reviews
dont put your child in this school if they participate in the ESE program! This school descriminates against handicapped children - not by the students but the staff! Good luck if you are forced to put your child here
Let me preface this review by stating that I have comfirmed my findings with fellow parents of students that attend this school. Forest Glen is located in area wherein the majority of the students are economically advantaged which I believe is why they are able to obain A grades. However, some of the teachers are not willing to go above the call of duty to assist a struggling student. They WILL NOT tutor or offer any assistance outside of class hours. They do not care if the student fails. I am a stay at home mom, who offered to bring my child at ANY time the teacher asked so that he could obtain tutoring. I was told by the teacher and the AP that tutoring is not her contract, either my sons gets what needs in class or I can hire someone. One teacher entered 3.5 weeks of grades in one day in the Pinnacle grading sytem and my son went from having a B to a D. I have daily reports generated from the Pinnacle grading system for all of my children.I have meet with all of his teachers on several occasions and provided my email, cell and home number and no one ever called me or wrote notes in his planner stating he was not doing well. It was only when my son recieved his work back with the poor grades (usually 2 weeks after the fact) did we find out. I even asked if my son could be placed in a class where the teacher offered tutoring sessions on his own time. I was told no. They were unwilling to even allow him to get help from a colleaugue. I also asked if I could get copies of tests or pertinent work. Again the answer was no and that it was against policy to allow parents to get copies. I always had to initate contact. During one meeting I was told I needed to keep better track of my son's progress by an dept head who was not familiar with my efforts. One of his teachers actually looked at the person who made the comment and said she is in contact with us at least once a week and call us immediately when a poor grade is entered into the Pinnacle system. The administrator just looked at the teacher with a blank stare. All I asked was that they keep me abreast of son's progress and help me assist him to do better either by tutoring or at least an example of how specific problems were to be completed. And the teachers my son had simply informed me that was not part of their contract.
