Hall Fletcher Elementary School Reviews
Not good. Some staff ok, but was not pleased with this school at all. Some good things, but I witnessed a great deal of un-professionalism with my child's teacher, which I will not mention names. This could be a good school, but there are some issues that should be addressed before it can be a great learning place. Classroom control seems to be a huge factor with severe behavioral problems that spread because it is not addressed up front with some teachers exacerbating the issue. There is a gender stereotyping issue among staff, based off my conversations with staff. All children should be considered and treated the same regardless of sex, color or creed. I saw a lack of encouragement and caring toward my child and was appalled at how one teacher engaged my child when I was present- very false accusatory and immature on the part of the teacher. Additionally, it is un-professional to discuss personal issues while meeting with a parent.
I love the school because it alway has great projects and fun homework
I use to attend Hall Fletcher Elementary School and I love how they always had creative projects and lessons. I have many good memories left from that school. I would like to share some of those memories as a example of what a interesting hands-on- activites school it is. In 2nd grade we made applesauce which was very facinating and we got to eat it afterwards too. We also made panoramic eggs or sugar eggs, I remember that part very well because I marveled with their beauty for a long time and I still love looking inside them at the magical sene inside. The school also had a garden in which I spend many happy classes digging in the dirt, finding earth worms, planting seedlings, and harvesting the plentiful harvest afterwards with my class and teachers. One year my class planted potatoes. After we dug them up we cut them up and made french fries with a little help from the teachers. As you see I have many wonderful memories and I plan on sending my kids to that school too so they can also experience that kind of teaching.
