Principal Shaw and Assistant Principal Fuqua at Peter Crump Elementary are good examples of leaders who care about the futures of their students. They are resourceful and have no problem asking for help. I am grateful for their leadership and compassion because it teaches the children to work hard and go after what they want.
Peter Crump Elementary School is a Diamond in the Ruff. My daughter attended a private school prior to Crump, but it is my opinion that Crump has afforded her more opportunity to expand her educational and creative horizons. Music and Art are offered as part of the curriculum this school year and my daughter loves it. The Principals at Crump are dedicated to the education of the students. They work hard to make sure the students have the tools necessary to excel. Crump isn't perfect and funding is challenged, but what is afforded to the students including the "Outstanding" educators confirm that Crump Elementary is truly one of the best public elementary schools in the county.
My son is a first grader at Crump Elementary and he has a learned a great deal. His teacher, Ms. Shannon is great and she has taught him a great of amount of discipline and respect in additon to the great education he is receiving. Crump does not offer much in the areas of music, art, or other extracurriular activities because I think many funds from the Board of Education are placed in the Magnet Schools. I believe that with more extracurricular activities, it will increase parental involvement.
my daughter's teacher is a better teacher then she had last year. they focus too much on test scores, instead of letting the kids mature and find there potential. my daughter for one, has had a better school year this year. she is a summer baby, and they focused so much on her immaturity. now she has blossomes, and become one of the brightest in her class.
