I sincerely wanted to love this school and walked away disappointed. Granted, they are going through a big transition into the new building but it seems that their growing pains will continue well into the future.
I feel bad for the new principle as it seems she is in dire need of more help - she needs an assistant principle and more admin staff to lighten the load. I wonder how strong the PTA participation is there and also how well the Montessori program is married with state standards and testing.
I turned in my application today via one of the satellite locations. Other than the people showing up late, it went quickly and smoothly. Good luck everyone!
