    "This school is so disappointing. I know most of the families who live in this neighborhood are affluent, but for them to be so controlling??? I agree with the parent review dated august 8 2012. These parents always ask for monetary contributions/donations. I opened my son's homework folder to find an envelope asking for money so the cleaning lady will clean classrooms year round. Don't they have custodians/janitors employed by the school to do this? Why pay extra for another cleaning lady? I'm afraid this is only the beginning. I hope anything, like this will be discussed first with all parents before sneaking an empty envelope to a child"s homework folder. I confirmed with another teacher from another public school that teachers and janitors help each other in classroom maintenance and cleanliness.The teachers in this school probably don't want to get their hands dirty. And since a lot of parents are rich, it's easy for them to just say say to this donations. What about the other parents who are just getting by from paycheck to paycheck? It;s hard to just give money away for their ridiculous reason."

    "My daughter just started the kindergarten this school. First of all, parents who are volunteering, do not let the teacher do her job. Teacher just sit and volunteer parents do her all stuffs. Even grading....its kindergarten but volunteer parents do not see that 5 years old kid is trying her best to assignment. If she erased a lot in order to write nice ....she gets 3- or less color then 2.. Why there is no encouragement? Then continuously asking donation... for teacher and school? For donation, omg so much hustle. Right now i am not really happy with this school."

    "This schools high API scores lull parents into thinking it s a great school when it isn t. The neighborhood socioeconomics and a high percentage of students attending after-school educational facilities will always bolster the API. Big problems are that the school lacks administrative leadership (hard to determine who s in charge) and strong teacher community (resulting in low teacher morale). The principal was too busy to attend an important school bullying meeting or decide if the technology lab had violated federal policy by giving emails and passwords to students without parental permission. Results are that some school policy and mediation are shockingly deferred to parent volunteers. Some teachers are great but parents warn each other who to avoid, including teachers that are burned-out, use TV as a babysitter, screamers, and the disengaged (who spend more time on personal laptops and less on instruction). By fourth grade there is an exodus for charters, magnets and private schools which is sad because this school should be great. Enrollment is kept up by issuing permits that are not offered publicly."

    "My child has been at 3rd Street for three years. It's been a great three years socially and academically. The teachers have been amazing, challenging, engaging, warm and professional. There is indeed an effort to make sure children prepare for the annual state testing, but in a way I find to be completely appropriate -- what is tested is what should have been learned that year, so why not test?! The curriculum is traditional -- rigorous study of language arts and mathematical concepts -- and uses those core skills to explore social studies and physical sciences. Thanks to district programs and parent-funded providers, my child benefits from visual arts, music, drama and technology "pull-out" classes during the school day, as well. Is everything perfect? No. It's chaotic and messy, as one might expect any place with 750 kids between 5 and 11 years old to be. Limited resources make sometimes routine things (fixing a lightbulb, trimming a tree) a bureaucratic challenge. But parents are invited to take ownership, to get involved and make a difference -- in whatever way they can. I, for one, have enjoyed the challenge, and think my child will leave the school well-rounded for it!"

    "At first the school appeared warm and inviting, but it became clear early on that the parents run the school and decide the outcome of many programs. It was obvious by the School Site Council, FOT, PTA, and KDLP program that if you were not a part of one of these groups or cliques, then you would not get much say or opportunity at this school. For working parents, this school is average at best when it comes to allowing different ideas for programs. They could benefit from hosting a meeting in the evening occasionally instead of always in the early mornings which is very difficult for a working parent. If this were the only issue, I would not comment. The school bullying plays a huge part of the school climate. Parents bully other parents to conform and donate, donate, donate money all the time. There were at least 3 counts of harassment that my child experienced and bullying with the lack of adequate supervision on the yard. Teachers get a time for their lunch, but I think the school needs the teachers to supervise more on the yard. If the principal would reign in her parents who act like they run the school, I think Third Street would be much better off."
