    "This is an excellent school. My oldest has just moved up to the middle school and my two youngest are still in Sickles. My oldest entered the school in kindergarten, so my experience with the school goes back to fall 2009. The complaints about the engagement or approachability of the administration, in other reviews here, seem very foreign to me. Similarly, I'm suspicious of the recurring complaints about the everyday math curricula. I sit with my kids during their homework most nights of the week, and I'm impressed by that program. My kids have an intuitive sense of math concepts that I attribute to that program. The bottom line is that my kids head out to Sickles excited for the day, for real, and they come home better educated, every day from a place that I know first-hand to be encouraging, warm and mission-driven. As I think about it, it really is a model organization."

    "The last principal was only there a couple of years and quit, so there's an interim principal. Some great teachers, poor administration. You have to teach all math on your own or get a tutor, since they use everyday math program. The curriculum is not challenging for any kid who attended preschool. If you have the $$, do private school, but if not, just plan to do alot of outside educating on your own."

    "Where do I begin?? I believe whole heartedly the principal of this school has no people skills. On many ocasions we have come face to face at the entrance of the school and not once has she ever said a hello. She only is concerned with meaningless dribble and projects a negative disposition to those she is not palsy-walsy with. The teachers have no clue at resolving problems between students. They push everything onto an unqualified school counselor who has good intentions but is not able to make an impartial decision without the principal's final judgement, even though the principal heard the problem not first hand but third hand. This school is all about appearences and not about really bringing out the best in the students."

    "Teachers are very poor at communicating with parents. Clear separation between working mothers and stay at home mothers. Principal caters to stay at home mothers and their children. School environment can sometimes feel sterile. Looks can be deceiving @ Sickles. Expectation that parents make many financial contributions to the school. Education my child received was average. Did not feel the teachers make extra time to help."
