    "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."

    "No school is perfect, but Third Street is about as good as it gets, public or private. I've read through the other comments and seen some concerns expressed about bullying. I've been a parent at the school for 6 years and I just haven't seen it as a pervasive problem. There are four or five kids (both boys and girls) who seem to be the trouble makers, but it's dealt with to the extent it can be at a public school. I wouldn't let concern about bullying keep you from sending your child here. As for other comments about issues with the parents who are involved in fundraising at the school, I'm thankful for them and their efforts which provide an incredible amount of additional enrichment programs and resources to all the students that aren't possible within the shrinking public school budgets, like a full-time librarian, full-time tech/computer instruction and new Apple computers, hi-speed wireless in classrooms, music program, extra field trips and more. The school is a wonderful melting pot of ethnic and economic diversity, and if you embrace that, you'll be welcomed into a true community. The academics are as good as any private school. Third St is a great learning environment."

    "My child attended this school last year. Because of parent fundraising, the school is able to provide lots of extras like field trips, a computer lab, and a music program. There is a lot of pressure to give money and volunteer, but it's still a bargain compared to private school. The school could do more to address bullying. I also think kids should be grouped so they can work on more challenging material if they are ready for it and/ or catch up in areas of weakness."
