My grandson attended at the JG Johnson campus two years ago. He had been and still is going through alot of ugly things that he can't quite understand in his life. Because of not understanding the why he has developed some anger issues. I believe it was these issues that got him accepted into this program. His two teachers were quite wonderful. They had no problems with him and he loved going to school. At the parent/ teacher meetings they talked about what a wonderful smart boy he was. And they even helped me work through some trouble I was having with him at home. It was for sure the best thing that could've happened for him and me. Unfourtantly he was zoned for Floyd the next year, in pre-k. It was the complete opposite. Not at all happy with the results there. This year he will be attending Hafen. I have a good feeling and have also heard wonderful things from friends about this school! We will soon find out!
His teachers were wonderful. They cared about him and they liked him. They understood him and helped me (his grandma/legal guardian) to better understand him too. They gave him a mix of just the right amount of all he needed to respect them and himself. They made him want to be nice and caring to his classmates they had nothing bad to say about him. Thank you for caring enough to understand what he has been through and for helping him to get through part of it, one day at a time. I love you for that!
He was 3 and didn't get homework, I was fine with that. I was asked to read to him and work with him on letters and numbers and I feel any kind of homework assignments would have been not age appropriate, not at age 3!
