Starting with some good points, I am very pleased with my son's teachers. He is a special needs student, and Watkins is the ONLY school in the area that has an autism class(for that matter, WHY is there only one school doing this, when the statistics are so high?). His homeroom teacher and his assistant have been absolutely wonderful with him. They are personally involved in making sure my son gets the best education he can, while providing the safety and close relationship that is ideal for autistic students. The bad news, is that the school has a serious lack of communication. Important matters are not addressed at all... like, what school will my son be going to next year, when Watkins becomes an all pre-k school? It is now Summer and I have no idea where my son will be going next year! Not to mention, the communication I have received has been ill-timed(letting me know that he will have a day off the day before or even the day AFTER the holiday!) or overkill on unimportant matters(practically spamming my voice mailbox with 5 or MORE of the same message per day, several times a week, concerning unimportant things like "Chuck E Cheese Night"). I'm very happy that my son will be going to a different school next year(whatever school that may be), but I hope his teachers follow him there.
