A school we do not recognize

By Staff | Nov 11, 2009

To the editor,

We read the article about The Sanibel School in Thursday’s edition of the News-Press (Nov. 5, 2009) and would like to comment.

Our children started at The Sanibel School in August 2008, having previously been in an entirely different system in England. They have settled in extremely well thanks to school’s friendly and helpful staff and we are encouraged by their progress.

At no time have we experienced or observed any “staff intimidation.” Our experience of the relationship between principal and staff has been universally good. At no time have we experienced any “retaliation” by the principal nor have we heard of any such incident at anytime from any other parent.

In short, the description of the school in the News-Press article is a school we do not recognize: a school that our children do not attend: and a school whose staff bear no resemblance to the kind, hard working, thoughtful and intelligent staff that we meet daily staff to whom we are both privileged and delighted to entrust the care and education of our children.
