We are new to the area and have found Paine Primary to be very unwelcoming. It took us 3 months to get our child enrolled into the school system while waiting to close on our new home. The staff was very cold and hard to deal with. The fact that corporal punishment is allowed and administered at Paine is very unsettling.
Outstanding facilities and faculty. Kids are provided with a great learning atmosphere and have the tools to succeed. Teachers hold students accountable and encourage them to do great things. Highly recommend...
The teachers provide challenging activities that keep students wanting to learn!
Paine Primary has exceptional to both of my kids. All of the teachers my family has experienced have gone above and beyond. I am most pleased with the concentration reading.
I couldn't ask for a better elementary school. I've had 3 children who have attended Paine and I am thrilled with their reading and writing abilities. The school has a great environment with beautiful framed art adorning all of the hallways. Teachers will not hesitate to 'think outside the box' to ensure children succeed. The school encourages parental environment and dozens of parents can be seen volunteering at the school on any given day. Paine Primary deserves 10/10!
I have had one child go to Paine Primary for kindergarten through second grade. I was pleased with every aspect of his educational experience there. Every teacher was superb. They made sure he was learning at the high standards they set, intervening when he needed it to keep him progressing. Communication with me and my husband was always excellent. My second son is now in his second year at Paine Primary, and we are equally a pleased.
Hard to say as this is our 1st yr there. There is very little diversity among the students and staff. Racial divisive statements have been made by some students as young as 7 yrs old. A few bad apples shouldn't spoil the bunch....we'll see
Quality teachers continue to leave this school system. Administration are very hard to work with.
We have been a part of Trussville City Schools for 2 years. The teaching staff along with the administration are fantastic. They put 100% into everything they do. They provide a wonderful learning environment for both children and parents!
I love this school. Paine provides a learning environment where kids can grow and excel. The teachers are outstanding and generally happy which translates to better teaching.
