High Tech Elementary North County Ratings & Reviews

I have two children attending HTe. They enjoy going to school everyday. Project-based learning is NOT traditional. You won't see packets of homework. However, you will find that your child will have learned real-world skills including public speaking, empathy, multiple approaches to get to an answer & working in a group effectively. I love that the main homework assignment is reading. They encourage reading in class and at home. I also like that they go on many field trips that are usually associated with their current exploratory subject of Engineering, Science or Art. I also love the small class sizes of 24 or less. Each teacher also has an assistant, making the adult to kid ratio 12:1 or less.

We have multiple children at this school and we're not thrilled with their progress in the fundamentals, particularly math and science. The teachers are quite arrogant, especially considering how many of them have never taught anywhere else before and only have 2 or 3 years under their belt. A new principal is starting this year, so we're going to give it one more try, but if we still feel our children are not measuring up to students from other schools, then we'll be taking them somewhere else. The school is "High Tech", however, they are more liberal arts minded. Just check the pathetic math and science scores. The math homework assignments are assigned solely on a computer program called ST Math without books. I tried some of the ST Math homework and it's not only confusing, it's counter intuitive and only makes my kids anxious. For example, they'll have a character walking across the screen and you have to guess the answer before the character falls into a pit. I don't like having to rush to think and I don't want that kind of pressure on my child when they're trying to learn something. It only makes them frustrated. To me, ST Math seems like a cop out for the teachers to have to actually grade and monitor their students' progress using paper and pencil. If you complain, they'll explain that your child is mastering different "strategies" to complete mathematical problems. I'm not buying it considering they do not know their multiplication tables yet and should be learning long division by now, but are way too behind. Using your fingers to calculate 5 x 5 is not a viable strategy!The classes have a number of projects they complete through the year and this requires parents to show up at the school and drive students on different field trips around San Diego County because never once have they chartered a bus. It's hard when you're taking a group of children into a bad neighborhood because the liberal teachers want to help underprivileged. I teach my children charity at home, I don't need the teachers doing it for me. They should focus on math, science and English. If there is spare time for their projects, then by all means, but don't use my kids to get up on a high horse and act like you're Mother Teresa.

Wonderful! Amanda Massey is a strong leader who will be sorely missed.

We have a super shy daughter who would have gotten lost in the public school system. The class sizes for her 1st grade class was 17!!! This school fosters a community feeling. Pairs up kids with older kid "buddies" who stay paired until one graduates. They help the younger kids with respectful feedback on their projects, while building their confidence in the succeeding in a project based learning environment.
