Verner goes above and beyond in helping each and every student. They have been such a blessing and worked wonders with my children. I have two children-both very different from one another. One of my kids excelled easily, and his teachers continued to grow him through enrichment activities. My other child was a struggling reader but was at grade level by the end of 1st grade, we so love Verner for caring about our kids academically, socially, and emotionally.



- a
I HAVE BEEN INVOLVED WITH VERNER ELEMENTARY SCHOOL FOR THE PAST 5 YEARS AND EACH STAFF MEMBER CARES ABOUT ALL OF THE STUDENTS IN THE SCHOOL AND MAKES SURE THAT THE STUDENTS ARE TAUGHT TO THE BEST OF THEIR ABILITY.




- a
I will say that this school is probably one of the best that Tuscaloosa has to offer. BUT that doesn't say much at all. Schools in this district and state are sadly underfunded, and most of the people here haven't been anywhere else so they don't know a good school when they see it.

Teacher effectiveness: Strongly agree


- a
Teacher at Verner are very effective. They assess students on a regular basis to see what the areas of strength and weakness are for each child. They meet children where they are, and communicate the needs of students to parents on a regular basis, as well.

Amount of homework: Agree


- a
Students are given extra practice in numerous subject areas on a near-nightly basis. On PTA nights, students are not given any homework so that parents and students can attend without having to worry about getting homework completed quickly.


Develops character: Strongly agree


- a
Students of many different backgrounds are all treated respectfully by teachers, and many receive extra help. Students are taught to treat everyone with kindness!



- a
This school is only a great school for certain children (and their parents). For children who are not favored by teachers, staff, and administrators it is a poor school environment.



- a
Children from privileged families seem to be favored over others. Parents who have time to "volunteer" all the time are able to curry favor with administrators.




- a
Best school in Tuscaloosa - hands down! The best principal, best teachers, best supporting staff members. Employees have a heart for teaching, and it shows. Verner rocks!



- a
It is a great school. My son loved it! From the principle to class teacher to library teacher, they are all experienced, confident, and nice. And great PE coach.
