Teacher effectiveness: Strongly disagree


- a
They do not practice what they preach in the least way. They are not supportive or kind and they are certainly not proponents of best practice.

Develops character: Strongly disagree

This school allows bullying and exclusion not to mention prejudice and an overall lack of responsibility and equality among its pupils and student teachers.

This school has made a mess and made believe of the world of early childhood education. This is the prop school for Boulder Journey School and the fund the JCC.

This is a review for Boulder Journey School from a former teacher. As previously mentioned, the curriculum is child-driven; and when I started there, I was very excited about this idea. It sounds great in theory, but I found that it didn't work for most children. The complete lack of structure worked for a very small percentage of kids, but it usually just meant that the classrooms were chaotic. Some children did do well, but most just ran amok leaving little time to actually spend quality learning time with any of the children. I also found such a focus on the environment, that we would be washing dishes and organizing when we should have been working on engaging classroom activities. For the money, there are better schools; and as a parent now, I wouldn't consider sending my son there.

We are new parents to the Boulder Journey School and couldn't be more pleased with our choice. The administrative staff and our daughter's teachers have been wonderful. Our daughter is a very free spirited child and we wanted an environment that she could explore and have fun with. At 3 we aren't really looking for a school to teach her Calculus so I would have to disagree with some of the other posts. The environment is creating and exploratory - teaching through play. The philosophy of the school (i.e., Reggio) pretty much sums up what you are going to get. I haven't had any problems with talking to teachers or administrators. Yes, some of the teachers are young, but they are full of energy and love of their job. Not bad things when you leave your child for a few hours a week. Expensive, but in line with similar programs.
