Bow Lake Elementary School Reviews

I adored my daughter's kindergarten teacher but her first grade teacher has been abysmal, a terrible disappointment. When I spoke about my concerns with the VP, I was told that she was a fine teacher, there were no problems. I stopped trying to seek help from the school, but am still upset by things my daughter tells me. The teacher doesn’t respond to e-mails and can’t remember her student’s names. I had volunteered in her class for several weeks and at the parent-teacher conference she had to verify which child was mine. I HAD BEEN HER ONLY VOLUNTEER; every e-mail I introduced myself with my name and my child’s name and the fact that I was her volunteer! Another volunteer in the school will not work in her classroom because of the lack of order. This teacher is unorganized – in thought and action. And the fact that the school does not step in to fix this situation makes me wonder what else they’re ignoring.

The kids have a very short lunch time and spend most of it practicing how to line up. By the time they get their food and sit down to eat, they’ve got 4-7 minutes before they have to clear up and stand in line again before being dismissed. Healthy food is optional for the kids, but every plate gets a hamburger, French fries and chocolate milk, or whatever highly-processed, white-flour-paste, meat-heavy food-substance they serve that day. My kid begged me to start packing her lunch because so that she’ll have time to eat and food she likes (VEGGIES!).

I am frustrated with this school. The kids are being under-served and under-educated. I am happy to be moving away from this district, though I’m sorry for the kids left behind.
