It is unfortunate that some families post ugly things about great schools. Every school has rough edges that are always needing some attention but Imagine Elementary is a great school for children both academically and ethically. This school focuses as much on the character building of my children as much as they do their academics. It reinforces the expectations I have at home and therefore is teaching my child to be a better person in this world. I love Imagine and their teachers!!!

It is embarrassing that someone feels the need to spend the time posting ignorant things about a school that is working its absolute hardest in a community where great schools are needed. I am a parent of a student at Imagine Schools. I have only moved to Coolidge a couple years ago, and I can still say that I have never seen a group of teachers and staff work harder to make a difference in the lives of the children they work with. Teachers at Imagine love their students dearly and work day and night to help them succeed. My child's teachers have gone to great lengths to develop him not only academically, but in his character as well, which is more than many schools can say. If everyone received such impressive character education, people wouldn't feel the need to sour something great with such bold disrespect.

Unless you're 50 years old and retired and won't be using your brain at all for anything anyway, ever, in which case you fit right in. This is not a place to establish the fundamentals of your life, at all. I'm sure all of the five-star sunshine "this school is amazing" ratings are all from Coolidge parents who've been here all of their life and have no intention of leaving. Of course they think its great, it's a fake professionalization of the poor education they've seen for the last fifty progress-less years. This region never ceases to thoroughly disappoint and disgust me.

I am surprised at all the reviews I have read. My children have attended this school all four years and cannot give it such glowing praise. I will praise the teachers. They hire teachers/staff who genuinely care about teaching our kids. But poor administration (mainly the principal) drives these teachers away after two or three years. They do not get the respect or support they deserve to do their job. The prinicpal is seldom on campus. There are now three administration officers and there are days where not one of them are on campus and office staff is left to handle everything. Lots of uncessesary training. Unfortunately, this school is preferrable to the others in the area so here we stay.

I absolutely love this school. I have one child in 2nd grade and one in the 8th grade. My 2nd grader has some special needs and they have gone above and beyond to help him. This is his second year at Imagine and he has grown academically by leaps and bounds. They do not make us feel like it is a burden that they have to put forth a little more effort with him. I would highly recommend this school to anyone that is considering it. You will not regret it. Everyone is very friendly and welcoming.

The Imagine Elementary School in Coolidge is great! My son has been going there since the 1st grade (when it first opened). All of his teachers have shown such genuine care and concern about his education and well being. Because of this, he has been an A student every year. Whenever I'm at the school, I feel such warmth and happiness coming from all the staff. I feel good sending my son to this school- knowing he is receiving such an excellent education at a safe, caring, and involved school.

This is a FANTASTIC school!!! The Principal is remarkable, and the teachers are dedicated to providing a excellent education. My son has been attending for two years. Mrs. Torvick was very compassionate, genuine and willing to work with my son. She offered tutoring in the morning. He to this day asks if he can have Mrs. Torvick next year. Mrs. Chrisman is very passionate about teaching which makes learning fun. He has managed to make both the honor roll and principal's list over the past two years which is a blessing. As a funny side note, our son's Dad loves to pick up and drop off. He feels a sense of joy and warmth from the staff. Many more phenomenal years for Imagine Coolidge!!!!!

We are all very pleased with Imagine Schools in Coolidge! We have a 5th and an 8th grader who did very well with K12 online last year and weren't real excited about going back to "real school." They love it and have already said they want to stay though 12th grade. The teachers are great and really care about teaching their students. We appreciate their efforts and that our children are excited about school and learning. We definitely would recommend Imagine Schools & Imagine Prep Coolidge. We live in Casa Grande and also appreciate the Bus service provided.

We moved to Coolidge JUST for this school and we could not be happier about our decision. Imagine Coolidge is my children's family away from home and we are blessed to be a part of something that will move mountains in the success of the children of this community. The teachers are dedicated to the success of their students and the Principal is phenomenal! I would like to see more parent involvment, as it seems it is the same parents all the time pitching in... other than that- outstanding school that truly cares about its values

My son is currently in the 6th grade & is Mr. Morales class. Mr. Morales is a great teacher, goes the extra mile. He offers tutoring in the morning, after school, and if that s not enough he coaches sports. He motivates his students to play sports & makes them work hard on their grades. When my kids go to the next grade, they leave behind good teachers that they dearly miss, Ms. Worden, Ms. Love, lucky for them there s a good teacher at the next level, Mr. Vega, Ms. Elliott, ect.

I am very pleased with this school. My two children are attending here and have learned so much. My 3rd grader was always a chatterbox and with the help of his current teacher she has helped turned his talkative ways into more of an educational experience since he is now so inquisitive about social studies. I highly recommend this school to fellow parents who ask about the schools in Coolidge. As for my Kindergartener, his first day was rough but with the help of his teacher she made it an easy transition. He looks forward to going to school daily now. I like this school very much!!!

My son has been in Imagine Coolidge for 3 years. I love the involvement of all the teachers with all of the students. They know most, if not all, of the students by name even if they are not in their class. Every year my son's teachers have worked closely with us when it comes to his individual learning needs and it has helped him tremendously. The extra curricular activities are great including the music program and the Eagle's Nest after school program. I love the involvement of parents and teachers when it comes to school activities.

Imagine Coolidge Elem offers a well rounded education where teachers really work with families to meet the individual needs of each student. I have 3 children who attend this school. They love going to school everyday. Their teachers know them as individuals which makes them feel loved and safe. I love seeing the progress my children are making both academically as well as in their character development. My children set goals. When I come to the school my children love showing me how they are doing in reading, math, and science which can be seen on creative data boards the teachers and students create.

Great teacher involment! Great principal who cares and will meet and discuss how to help your child succeed. Great fun programs for this age group. Best of all our 3 elementary children made big progress with this school They made the honor roll, loved their teachers, had fun and looked forward to going to school. Could not have asked more of these teachers - they care and will be happy to meet with parents - make adjustments for learning style of the child - best decision we made was going here!

Love it. My children were in Sonoran Science Academy in Tucson AZ. And I found that when we moved here and my youngest son started Kindergarten here that he had learned so much and had a better foundation in reading and spelling than my other 2 children who did not start at Imagine and are in 1st and 2nd grade now. Staff is WONDERFUL, TEACHERS are amazing, and the principal is great. Love LOVE the school would recommend to anyone worth the time and drive.

As a parent, I was so excited when Imagine came to Coolidge. I wanted another option for my children because I wasn't happy with the quality of the Coolidge Public Schools. The school offers a great curriculum in the elementary grades and the students are challenged to do their best. There are incentives and opportunities for every student to succeed. The teachers are highly qualified, dedicated, and caring. The school teaches to the whole child and we are happy with the individualized attention our children get. My one wish would be more parent involvement in the PTO.

This is the best school I have sent my children to! The staff are genuinely caring people. The children are not only learning academics, they are learning how to be successful, good, productive people in our society. I have seen great respect and concern for our children both in the academic area as well as social areas. My children tell me they do not want to stay home for a 'free day' off, that they would rather come to school because they love their school and their friends and their teachers. Which we all know what that means when a child tell you that!

I do not agree that the school is doing their best with teaching respect and honesty. Out on the playground one day the children horse collared each other, took each others shoes and played keep away, boys inappropiately touching girls, two boys were dragging a girl buy the feet through the wood chips while she was screaming, and a majority of the other kids were throwing rocks at each other while the teachers paid no attention. We have walked down the hall and have seen older kids full on shoving younger kids around. My favorite is my son coming home and telling me the older boys are bragging about having sx in the bathroom stalls and telling my son he has sx with his dog. The kids have to wear uniforms and have a uniform code, on any given day you can find multiple children out of code.

I'm very pleased with the education they are recieving as well as the character traits & good old fashion values (trust, responsibilty, respect, honesty, ect) they are teaching the children of our community. My 5yr old can read & is learning simple addition/subtraction. There are clubs/activties for children to be ivolved with (as well servicing our & neighboring communties). Staff is genuine in caring for students & having their best interrest in mind. I'm thankful for the opportunity to have my children be involved with the Imagine family.

We are very happy with the education that our children are receiving at Imagine. The leadership is firm, but kind. The teachers are excited and happy to be there (which says a lot!). The children just performed in 3 different musicals (divided up into age groups) at the large theater at CAC, and they have been on multiple field trips (one involving community service--cleaning up a park). It is a well rounded education with the basics at its core. The administration cares very much about the success of the school.
