Saddle Rock School Ratings & Reviews
Wow, we just ran into a teacher from this school at Michael's store. She was in line in front of us and I guess my child was "in her space" and she rudely shooed him away saying "don't get into my space." When he noticed she was a teacher at his school I was shocked! He said "well she's always like that so we're used to it." For a school that emphasizes "good character" this is unacceptable. I feel even the staff is playing "keeping up with the Jone's" as many carry their Louis Vuitton bags (starting with the assistant prin and this teacher too) and have this snotty attitude on top of that. This community is full of them as it is, the last thing we need is the school going in that direction.
The resources at this district are wonderful and teachers do their jobs. However the administration, Principal, VP, social worker and psychologist themselves are not a parent yet or are parents to small children so their assessment in handling children's behavioral issues are too much by the book and overdone. There are no old school, old values, common sense thinking in place so they make parents more nervous than they should be suggesting extreme measures for standard issues.
This is a great school in a wonderful neighborhood. The teachers are very involved and so is the staff. Education is excellent and I have no complaints I have a 4th and 5th grader that have both been attending since kindergarten. This is a great school!!
Their school slogan "smart choices, kind voices" is hardly the case. When I sent a letter to the administration to address a concern, it took another letter and 2 phone calls for the Assistant Principal to call me back. And her tone was very combative and she kept saying "that's the law" without any further explanation. Their choice regarding the situation was NOT smart. The school psychologist and social worker made very poor judgements and put our family in major upheaval. They rotate around other schools and do not know your child like a homeroom teacher would and make decisions without parent involvement and on a 5minute talk with your child. I do not see this school the same light anymore.
We moved here a year ago. The teachers are excellent. They do so much fun stuff in Science, Art, Computer...I was very impressed. The class teacher reviews every homework. But I was disappointed that there is no afterschool program at all for 2nd grade and below.
