Only the UPK teachers are certified. You'll be paying almost $6,000 for an education you'd be getting at a charter school for free.
Your kid would get better education and respect elsewhere. Some teachers are bullies and don't show respect to the kids of the parents.
As a parent, and educator, who had a child at this school and has seen how teachers do their work remotely, I am appalled at their behavior. Screaming at the kids for not understanding something is not acceptable. Yelling at the kids for not being capable of tracing or drawing something perfectly is not acceptable, especially when their hand muscles are still developing. Berating a kid when he/she froze while answering a question is unacceptable. Yelling and putting down children because they’re taking time while completing a task that is time consuming is not only unacceptable. Yelling at a little child because he/she was distracted in a class that is not engaging is not acceptable. There is absolutely NO reason why an “educator” needs to yell at any student, let alone little ones constantly. This was an everyday occurrence. Unfortunately, the best the school administration will do is just change your child to another classroom. This is very telling.
I went to this school for 5 years and it was a very enjoyable experience. One of my favorite teachers was Ms. Hughes and until today I remember how kind and strict she was - but in a good way, it made her my favorite teacher. Overall, the faculty was very supportive, I had a lot of good times there.
I had an excellent experience at St. Raymond’s. I always focused on working really hard to get to my objectives that’s why I got Honors every school year! St. Raymond’s helps students reach their full potential.
