PS 30 The Westerleigh School Reviews
I find that the teachers are excellent, so are the parent coordinators, assessment teams and office staff.
However I do find that there is no learning going on in Language Arts. I think my daughter brought home maybe 3-4 sheets of homework and this is the end of February. One page was synonyms and the other antonyms. They were both given out days apart. She is in 2nd grade. The work is appropriate for the grade but are they moving too fast and what are they actually working on in class and do they take tests?
The 20 points for 4th grade is stupid. Make them do spelling and vocabulary, and sentences like normal schools do!!!!
The school has a good rep but I tutor kids from that school and find that half the time they come home with homework of things they did not learn. They need to send textbooks home to do homework and not sheets of paper. I can teach different ways of doing math so they understand but they want it done the way they teach it which is way to complicated for some of them.
