We have withdrawn our children because they were not safe at school - in the
school or on the playground. —Submitted by a parent

Very upsetting experience, minimal supervision at recess, violence is tolerated
and the needs of bullying children seem to take priority. Though good things are
present, ineptitude and disorganization lead to a "Lord of the Flies" type
atmosphere. Very expensive and dissapointing experience. —Submitted by a parent

After my eagerness to enroll my child in Tamarack for K4, I was very displeased
with how things turned out. Supposedly my child had a temper tantrum problem,
however the K4 teacher waited a month before telling me anything about the
problem, even though she said it existed from the beginning. By that point it
was completely out of her control but she expected me, as a full-time working
parent to commit to an on-call schedule and pick my child up whenever they
called and said she'd gotten to be too much. Additionally, she placed labels on
my child like "special-needs" and stated that she made "cerebal-palsy like
movements" and was just completely out of control. I am 100% for working with
teachers to do what is best for our children, but not ok with a teacher who is
quick to label a child before she has even attempted to work with the parents.
And that doesn't mean waiting a month before trying to do so. I am sure Tamarack
is an excellent school for grades 1-8, and wish we could have continued, but our
start was less than positive.
