Jean & Betty Schmalz Elementary School Reviews
Our experience with this school was mixed. The PTA has wonderful ladies & you can tell they truly care. The front office staff is great, the nurse was very caring & compassionate. What I found most disturbing about this school is it's overall disrespect for the children by a majority of the teachers. Yes, with 22+ children per class, a teacher has to keep order. However, there is a way to keep order without making the children think & feel you could care less about them. My own child told me, "they smile & talk nice to each other & then turn right around & talk mean & yell at us". I investigated & found this to be true. No, not every teacher in the school yells. When you walk the halls & hear what I heard coming out of some of the teachers mouths, yelling or not, you'd either better be there as often as possible to make your presence VERY known, or find another way to school your child. We chose the latter.
