Mountain Island Day School Ratings & Reviews

School administration is very disorganized. The school has had some great teachers through the years but many have left.

There are so many things wrong here. The curriculum is great and the overview of the school in terms of what they would like to achieve. I got sold a great dream and hoped my child could take advantage of the early college start. But if you ever have a problem it will take you months to resolve unless you have the free time to constantly show up and press for help. And ultimately dozens of students that have been going here magically did not get back in after they decided to transition to a charter. Now we are forced to find other options with a late start. With everything that has taken place here I should have seen that coming an planned accordingly but I dropped the ball. I thought surely they were not this bad after all they are here to guide our children. I guess their choices made for better business.

One day, while driving home from work, I came across a sign for a private school recently opened in the area. I met both Tammys and liked all I heard about this school - the owners even had sons the same age as my son’s.(This was before Berkley :-) I remember like it was yesterday... Tammy C. took my son to the library at the previous location for testing. My heart pounded for those minutes while he got tested, cause at that point, I was sure MID was the right place for him. You can’t imagine the joy I felt when she emerged with my Baby and exclaimed "Oh yes, he's ready"! My son was admitted back in 2009 and as the years progressed, a lot changed with our family, but MID was the one constant we had in our lives, always providing support. In 2011, while separated from my son’s father, things were really tough - so tough that I couldn’t even afford to buy Christmas gifts for my sons. Tammy W. had asked how things were going, to which I responded "alright". Appears she wasn't convinced, as she followed up with " Are you guys ready for Christmas"? A couple of days later, I received a call from Tammy C asking me to see her that evening. That evening Tammy C led me to Rev. Winstead's office and in there, she showed me gifts of all sizes - for my boys! My heart leapt out of my chest! That was the most gifts and best Christmas my son’s ever had - all because of MID’s kindness! In 2013, when my ailing Dad came to live with us, I had incurred a ton of medical bills with more on the way and decided to send my son to a public school. I informed MID of my decision and MID decided to ease my financial burden and extended my son a 50% scholarship. In 2015, when my son was informed of the impending divorce, his one wish was that he remained enrolled at MID. MID continued to graciously extend the 50% scholarship and work with me regarding transportation and after school care. I could go on and mention so many other instances, as there are many. You've eased the transition to our new life in so many ways, words are inadequate to express our gratitude. My son is fortunate enough to get to continue his education at the only school he’s ever attended, with the only school family he’s known. You are Angels in our midst and we are eternally grateful. May God bless our new school, Mountain Island Day Community Charter School - from the depths of our hearts, THANK YOU!!!

I’ve waited 3 months before I decided to post anything regarding this school because I didn’t want to be posting anything that wasn’t fair or bias and also I needed to process everything as to what happen and why my rating is so low....needless to say, we moved on and thank God we did because I’ve witness a gain academically, responsibly, and 9yr old maturity in 4 weeks at our new school in comparison to this one. All I can say is, everything happens for a reason. Now I can go all into the story as to what happen but It’s a long long story that requires more conversation than text but all I can say is how do a student receive two “A’s”...3 “B’s” and 1 C ....and receive all B’s in Christian concepts and work habits on his report card on 10/31....but receive a phone a call that he’ll be expelled 2 days later for verbal bullying but yet has not ( no suspension, no parental contact prior about any incidents or fair warning about anything that might not be proper behavior in or out of school....After the phone call for the expulsion ( from the acting principle) I ask for a meeting the next day (11/2) but could not get a meeting until (11/7).....hmmmmmmNow during the meeting we ask for proper documentation such as parental contact for any prior incidents that was “ supposly written up”...did we get them....NOWe also asked about how can his grades reflect the decision to come to expulsion so quickly and all we received was a blank stare....we also asked the teacher directly with the administration “ from your experience “ do you think this situation deserve an abruptly expulsion...all we got was crickets.....what was told to us during the 3 business day delay meeting was that they did receive an email from another parent that her daughter was home crying one day because he friend ( another boy) was being bullied by my kid and she couldn’t take it anymore....that’s right!!! An email from another parent....not the kid parents who was supposedly being bullied....but on a separate occasion him and his mother did come to the school and reported bullying and the asked him when did it happen and his response was “ a couple of weeks ago” so an infraction form was written up in November and out of the blue dated “ Oct 12” and which we didn’t know about until November....right at the expulsion..... can’t make any of this up...good luck and thank God it happened!!

An update to my glowing 2013 review. Unfortunately things progressively went downhill starting in 1st grade and we eventually pulled our child out after a few years. The teacher turn over rate was high, with the good ones exiting first. Mrs. Keener was a gem, and also the exception. Many of the teachers had good intentions but lacked refined interactive skills and struggled with navigating the different personalities of each child. The communications I received from staff and teachers were usually full of typos and grammatical errors. The school either does not have the capacity to support advanced children, or only offers it to children that fit a certain mold. Our child was frequently bored with the curriculum and would talk, fidget, and doodle after finishing the work, which often landed our child in trouble. Our child was performing above grade level and all they would do is give our child more work. Not challenging work, just more work. Mrs. Keane, the principal, was the downward turning point to the school, as her poor leadership and negative disposition seeped into the culture of the teachers. She has the attitude that decades of "experience" supersedes what a parent knows is best for their own child. If a parent challenges her, she gets flustered and defensive. Instead of being an advocate for the children, and saying the school is failing the child, her mindset is it's the child that is failing the school. When I told her and her staff nothing would be accomplished until they stopped treating a boredom issue as a behavioral issue, Mrs. Keane told us "You don't know how many times I get a parent in my room telling me their child is misbehaving because they are bored." She completely ignored the fact that our child was a repeat A/B honor roll student year after year. That was the moment I knew it was time for us to leave MID. After being MID "family" for several years, no one cared to ask why we were leaving. So, consider this the exit survey we never received.
