Slade Elementary School Reviews
My rating is based on how their preschool wait list is handled. Their preschool is funded with grant money from the state. With money coming from the taxpayer, you would think that priority would go to those with low income and on a first come, first serve basis. This is not the case - at least not completely.
The teacher of the preschool program does make sure that she fulfills the requirements for lower income families to maintain her grant status, but beyond that, she will provide her close personal friends with the remaining spots by giving them insider information regarding deadlines and availability of paperwork and registration.
It's not right, and it provides some specially selected families with primary status - all on the taxpayers dime.
