Niagara Falls City School District Reviews

I think it would be best to just start it all over! I really feel, as a parent, that most staff in the school district staff only care about getting money for the schools! There have been times where my kids have went directly to a teacher with relevant issues, then myself, and then myself to someone "higher up" for my kids success. They seem to think NO parents care about their kids education or that no student cares about their own education. My kids are almost through their school career so it is most likely too late for them but their will be more! There have been secretaries in the office that seem to be more involved or care more about the students than principals or teachers. I cannot believe the things I have to buy or send money in for on top of all the grants and such they get.
Review Niagara Falls City School District
More effort towards understanding kids acting out. More effort to deter bullying. Schools are unsafe because the adults lack effort to change safety issues. More effort placed on getting kids college ready. GET RID OF COMMON CORE. Better notification of upcoming events so parents can arrange their schedules to attend things like financial aid night held at the school. Take examples from other schools around the country who have zero tolerance policies when it comes to bullying. Require more out of parents, and if compliance is refused, consequences must be in place. Keep whats working, like BOCES. Reward good behavior, of everyone, including teachers, admins, students, and yes..even parents!
This is my seventh school that I have attended in all of my educational lifetime so far. I felt right at home instantly! The teachers are helpful and assistive and only want the best for their students. The students there, are also very welcoming towards anyone.
