Good experience. Peer mediation to find ways to clr disagreements, supporting kindness and learning strategies to support creative ways to problem solve. Like the project based approach. Love that my child is learning to be kind and collaborate, while learning math, writing, reading, science, etc.

Our experience has been with Pre-K so far, and we've been very happy. Our teacher has been thorough, responsive, and attentive, and the classroom has always had at least one additional aide (we just added a second aide, bringing the ratio to 3 adults for 19 students). Our child LOVES the aides, and the music teacher. We get daily reports on behavior, and class projects or artwork are always sent home. We also receive (super helpful) weekly summaries of the curriculum that was covered so that we know what to ask. Our child has made wonderful gains and been exposed to a range of peers and subjects that they very likely wouldn't have otherwise seen at 4-5 years old. They have one rotating special every day, either art, music, or gym. All three specialty teachers seem very capable and engaged, though we have had a host of behavioral problems in art and gym. In fairness, that may not be a reflection of those teachers though.Dealing with our child's behavioral issues has been a struggle, and our one hesitation with Blaker. They do seem very focused on conduct and discipline, and I often worry that the full day exposure to so many enforced rules of conduct could be eroding our child's individuality. The principal is approachable, but appears to act primarily as a disciplinarian. Our teacher has been wonderful about communicating with us, and bad behavior does put everyone in a bind - the school has to respond somehow when students act inappropriately. There is a small but nice selection of afterschool activities, and lots of good opportunities from visitors, volunteers, and special guests. I would not hesitate to recommend Blaker's pre-school to anyone, especially with the current teacher and aides.

School 55 is a positive and safe environment for all children. Staff work hard to ensure that learning is top priority. There is never a time in the day before and after school where there are not hard-working teachers going above and beyond.

My opinion of this school has greatly changed from the beginning of the school year to now. My son is a 3rd grader. I've sat in his class for a couple of weeks and see that some of the staff is not capable or unwilling to meet the children where they are in terms of learning style. I had the pleasure of seeing the principle get 2in from a students face, pointing her finger in his face about not being quiet during a tornado drill. I've never given my child a free pass for any misbehaviors, however this school's sense of discipline takes things to a WHOLE other level. My child was suspended because he did not want to put his coat on at the end of the day. Yes, I'm sure he got an attitude, but really...why are you battling with a child about a coat. Everything is considered defiant. My neighbor's child was chastised for making fun of a teacher's name. Really?! Who didn't do that has a kid. I was warned about IPS, however, being new to the area, who would've known. Yes, there are alot of opportunites to be involved with your child at this school, so if your child expresses something about his/her teacher or staff at this school, please listen and go see for yourself!

The teachers are good and work with parents. However the academics leaves something to be desired. My kids are bored in school because they already know most of the stuff they're doing.
