James H. Watson Elementary School Reviews

I don't see what you hate about Watson. I was there from Kindergarten to third grade until I moved in 2008.Everyone was nice, the lunch lady gave me a stuffed lamb the first day when I went to breakfast. No-one ever rolled there eyes or was rude. I can't say anything about transportation because I walked to school. One day me and my sisters were walking to school, my sister was behind me and tripped. She fell on top of me and I fell, scrapping my face on the sidewalk. Instead of turning home, which was closer, I went to school with a scrapped and bleeding face knowing the nurse could take care of me better than my foster mom could. I walked in to the school and the teacher that watches the kids as they came in rushed me to the nurse. She was very kind and patient as I explained what happened. The teachers were all nice, with the exception of maybe the male fourth grade teacher. I don't know what Watson elementary school you all are referring to, but this one sure as hell isn't it!

The condition of the building is good. They have next to no technology. The only computer lab is where they hold typing class. There is very little room for parents to get involved. The buses are madhouses.
They teach to the test. They are extremely boring and cannot give real world examples.
