Buckeye Valley North Elementary School Ratings & Reviews
Changing to the University of Chicago math project teaching method was a huge injustice to the children in 4th and 5th grade in Buckyeye valley. It spends no time mastering any one aspect, teaching Lattice method for multiplying and dividing completely removed parents for the equation. teaching them to figure diameter using 3 instead of 3.14 because they hadn't learned to divide decimals yet is just crazy. They totally and utterly confused my child who is now in middle school and cant divide tradtionally and still struggles with math facts. I see the mistakes she's making and realize she never understood what was being taught traditionally or their so called "new math". They should have never thought you can teach something in a totally new way and expect that the parent can help at home. they sabotaged my childs future in school, now I have to fix what they twisted into a knot! In 6 years of being at this school very little was done to meet my childs needs.TOTALLY DISAPPOINTED!
Buckeye Valley adopted a method of teaching math to the elementary schools that only served to put my niece further behind than she already was. The school told her mother NOT to teach her the way she was taught but that is the only way she could help my niece. The school said it would confuse her but they did a fine job of that themselves. The teachers wanted the parents to do the actual teaching at home by teaching a method the parents never learned. Things such as percentages, decimals, fractions, etc...were barely touched on before they would go on to something else so the kids were not getting any time to master one thing before going on to the next. My niece was confused unneccessarily by the teaching method and so fell even further behind just before going on to the Middle School. Now she is being taught the old methods but the damage has been done, my niece still struggles with the basics because the teachers thought they knew a better way. Oh, and by the way, calling your students "honor roll" when they clearly are not is obviously just the faculty trying to make themselves look good so they can keep their jobs. The sign says "school of excellence" ...what a sad joke.
I have not been satisfied with the education my daughter has received at Buckeye Valley North. She is in first grade and cram packed in a classroom with 28 other children. The 2 teachers she has had so far are sub-par and take tremendous amounts of effort on my part to make them take an interest in the needs of my child. My child is reading at the second grade level and they do nothing for her to continue at this advanced level. The general thought is: let the rest of the kids catch up. The tax levies they lobby for are to improve the physical buildings but do nothing for the advancement of education. We will be moving soon to get out of this district.
