This is our 4th year at Pearsontown and we have had a very good experience thus far. I agree that its all about the teachers you get and there is a spectrum, but all of the teachers we have had have all cared very much about our son's experience and were very adept at teaching. Not all of them have been the most professional, buttoned up teachers I've ever met, but for what is most important, teaching my child, they have all excelled. That said my son has one of the best teachers I have ever seen this year. She is truly inspirational. He is currently in 3rd grade and feels connected to his school and his teacher. Mr. Teal, the principal is very inclusive and excited to be there. All schools will have pros and cons, and for us, thus far we have found many more pros. We feel lucky for our daughter to start Kindergarten there in the summer. It is an inclusive community, but like anywhere else, you have to show your interest and get involved. We love it here.

My two kids were at Pearsontown for 3 long years. There are some great teachers and some teachers that really should not be teachers. How the kids are challenged depends on the teacher you are lucky to get. The biggest issue came when my son was in 5th grade. If there is a situation where the parent needs to get involved it is not handled professionally at all. One time a teacher called my husband at work and was highly emotional over a situation that occurred between my son and another child. She had my son with her and began making insulting comments about him to my husband in his presence. What adult does this and teacher at that? This should've been a teachable moment and handled much differently and taught my son nothing to witness something like that. It was actually very damaging to him emotionally. This should've been handled in a private meeting between the parents, teacher and principal. We did get a meeting with the Principal and although I do like him, he basically told us that his main focus at that time was preparing his school for the EOGs. Wow. I also have witnessed teachers screaming at kids and seen kids reduced to tears at times. It's a VERY loud and sometimes hostile environment. The kids are treated as if they are in military school. So glad I got out before my youngest started kindergarten there!

Our son is in 1st grade, and we are continuously impressed with the teachers, staff and quality of education he is receiving. Concerned about the challenge level of Durham schools? Please tour this school. The teaching staff sincerely cares for their students even with the challenges they face from the state (budget & common core). What most impresses me is that my child is spelling words I didn't see until 3rd grade. He is reading above level with comprehension questions (oral and written), and his writing journal includes (already!) how to formulate a response with a beginning, middle and end. For the criticisms, no school is perfect. Funds for the classroom don't go far. Parents band together to get supplies. Expect that everywhere. NC schools are in budget crisis. In the end, we are glad we didn't move to Wake and dealing with their overcrowding. We are happy we chose Pearsontown over charters he got slots in, and we know fundamentally that our son is experiencing more of a real-world representation in his classroom and school. If we can raise him to think inclusively and understand the world as a non-homogeneous community, then we've done something right.
