My husband and I spent ten minutes in the front office at Walker attempting to get information as to which school (Walker or Smalley) to send our daughter. We could not leave fast enough!
The front desk person had no information to give us as she was "not an administrator." We could not speak to an administrator. There were no handouts or booklets we could review. Every question we asked was sidestepped with a caustic attitude. The two children we saw in the office having to use the phone looked terrified to be there.
This was not an administration I would want to deal with for the next six years. Both my husband and I are former military. We understand discipline and protocol. The atmosphere of this school was too much for us.
We were essentially told to enroll her then we'd find out what the school is like. No thanks. We're being locked into one school or the other for the next six years. This is not a decision to be made lightly. I am thankful to CCSD for allowing us to pick the better fit for our family.
While Walker's test scores show to be higher than Smalley, I refuse to let it be at the expense at our daughter's mental and emotional health.
For additional languages, we plan on being Rosetta Stone's newest customers. Besides we can pick a language that will benefit our daughter in the international workplace. Spanish is not in the top five of most spoken languages.
