The current principal,M.T doesnt appears to be kind. She Has a reputation for labeling slow learners. There has been high turnover staff in this sch under her mgt In recent years. The kind, nice, loving teachers has practically all left! There are also extreme negative feedbacks with how the kids and parents are treated. Some parents are appears to be bullied by her. If she is replace, maybe you can consider this school for your child. If not, do reconsider.

Actually a parent just shared with me that she is very positive about the current P. Apparently, there was one very disruptive kid in the class. the P (who was holding the fort while they were finding replacement teacher) somehow managed to work with him such that he became more attentive and less disruptive.

Another story was her own kid. During PTM, apparently the P (same class as that disruptive kid) was able to tell the parent that her child actually write a certain letter in a funny way and how she managed to guide the child so that the correct way is done.

Just want to balance it out - there are some pp who may not like, but there are others who like the school.

oh yes, she has been holding the fort for years. As i have mention, the turnover of teachers are extremely high. Even her treatmen towards her staff are unkind. Many gd teachers have left. I believe that the turnover of staff will continue to be high in the next few years. Who wants to work with a unkind superior? Principal M.T. is known for unkindness in the neighborhood. But i do agree that she is proficient in marketing and advertising herself. There are many parents who suffered, have sleepless nights due to her lack of professionalism. It is a matter of time that these parents will make known to the church what she has done. Because these figures are rising fast. Above are only my friends and mine experiences we had from her. Maybe others have 'gd' experiences with her which is unknown in this community.

She was holding the fort for my kid class for about a year. I was amazed that he enjoyed having her in class. Anyway everyone have their own experience.

I have stayed away from this kindy since my kids 'graduated' so unsure. If it's the same Principal....will there be difference?
