Hampton Schools Reviews

By a Parent on

The Hampton School has only one curriculum, The Sleeping Giant, which is just phonics. This phonics program focuses on very young children reading developmentally inappropriate words. The words are difficult, challenging, and naturally mean absolutely nothing to the students. Students come away with a serious lack of comprehension skills.
There are no math, ELA, social studies, or science programs, curriculums, or standards set in place. Ask what your child will be learning this year and ask to see it all ahead of time! A pile of old textbooks from the 60's does not constitute a curriculum.
The kindergarten class has no teacher's aide or assistant, despite the legal ratio. The pre-school is overcrowded for the classroom size, also frequently found to be above the legal ratio of teachers to students. The teachers aren't trained in CPR, first aid, or any safety precautions. Fire drills are rarely conducted.
There are children just turning 3 years old attending the school, and nap or rest time is against the school's philosophy.
The Hampton School is nondenominational; however, if you want the Catholic religion pushed on your pre-schooler or kindergartener without your consent, send them here. The children have learned about angels, baby Jesus, mother Mary, saints, etc., and the kids soak it up without parents knowing or ever giving their permission.
The overall atmosphere and environment is extremely unprofessional.
The turnover rate of employees at Hampton is shocking. Within the past two years there have been 4 to 5 teacher's assistants, and 2 pre-kindergarten teachers. All of this occurs during the school year and the young children are forced to attach and feel comfortable with many different adults. (Edited for content by Education.com staff)
