Our experience with Coyote Springs has been great so far! The teachers do a great job of communicating with parents. The daily agenda has been a great tool for keeping us informed of our son's behavior and achievement on a daily basis. His reading level is a couple of grades higher than the actual grade he is in. I wondered if it would become an issue resulting in boredom for him, but his teachers have done a phenomenal job at keeping him challenged with books that suit the level he is at. When I was a kid, we all read through the same workbook & had the same spelling words. Now, they are tailoring more and more to the individual in these areas. I am pleasantly surprised at how well they are doing this in the public school system! Even though the focus is on academics, they have retained fun activities such as p.e., music class, library time, computers, recess, after-school sports activities, etc. I do wish an art class was offered, but it seems to be a rare thing anywhere anymore. Overall, we've been very pleased with our choice of Coyote Springs Elementary School and would highly recommend it to others. A+
My son is constantly bullied on the bus. The school says to call the transportation department and then the transportation department does nothing, so it seems that no one cares if 4th and 5th graders are picking on kindergarteners or 1st graders....
This is a safe, clean school with a focus on student achievement. Consistenty pereforms on state tests as ABOVE average. The principal and office staff are friendly and helpful.
Not a very good school. Some great teachers, some not so great. Principal is cold and doesn't seem to understand kids especially the younger ones. Not a warm environment for sure. Behavior on buses is a problem. I know drive my kids to school. If you have an option, go somewhere else.
Your right the principal is to never be found anywhere when you need help.I guess it's okay to have bullies at this school. It's very sad when you hear of kids chocking another and on the playground punching,very bad name calling and so forth and bullying on the buses. Really you can't kick the kids off the buses any more for messed up behavior like that? My bus driver did. Maybe you should go back to doing that and then the parents can see how bad they trained thier kids! Or maybe they should have the kid kicked out of school and repeat thier grade again till they get it! Maybe the school policy about bullying should be changed to "We educate bullies here and it's okay to bully!" Maybe the school board and higher authorities would love to hear about all of this. I'm sure they would love to hear from a huge group of mad parents! And it's never the bully who gets in trouble it's always the non bully here! And to think your keeping your school children safe Ms. Principal? How? When you look the other way? Shame on you ! It's already hard enought to keep your own kids in order when teachers also bully the children too! Think about that!
My son is now in his second year at this school and loves it. Both teachers he has had have been GREAT. He is in first grade and is reading chapter books, doing double digit addition, and much more. I volunteered a lot last year before I had a new baby and was always welcomed. I have heard a few complaints about some things from other parents but we have had absolutely none.
There are really great teachers at CSES, however; when you get a "bad" one it can be very frustrating. The new principal is pretty good as far as I know of... The front office staff can be very rude and not personable like what you would expect from an elementary school. They have improved over the past few months on their communication skills. My son and my neice do not like going to school and when I was their age, I loved attending school. The school needs to find a way to improve the morale of the students. I also feel that there is a lot of bullying going on and the teachers are not taking it seriously enough.
There are a few good teachers here, you just have to cross your fingers every year and hope you get one. Front office staff needs to learn how to smile. (act like prison guards) New principle doesn't like parental involement or to talk to parents and doesn't say hello in the hall. She just keeps on going and pretends your not there. I would say it's a hit and miss school.
The teachers do not listen or care about what the parents have to say. My child is currently receiving good grades (and always has) but does not enjoy going to school, although he has always loved school in the past. I spoke with the teacher about possible bullies and his attitude toward this school. She basically said that its not her problem and pointed the finger of blame at the administration and my family. I have not been contacted since and was given bad contact information for her. My son also complains of the teachers turning a blind eye to the behavior issues (bullies) of the children in class as well as the playground. It is extremely difficult to see your normally happy child shoulder the weight of the world, silently, every time he walks out the door to school.
The staff and Principal at Coyote Springs is top notch. Dr. Farney is one of the best administrators I have ever come across! They really care for their kids!!
The teachers and staff are all very involved and encourage participation from my wife and I in a very detailed plan to give our children the best possible opportunities for success. Fighting our kids to go to school every day is never a problem. My children look forward to going to their classes each and every day!
I believe that this school is great with academics and music. Sports are not regularly available. My only complaint on this school is the lack of responsibility the teachers take for the kids. I have had many times when my child was misplaced during and after school.
My 3 kids have gone to this school for 3 years now. I hate to leave the school and have stayed in this area because of the school for as long as possible. The children are given many opportunities to shine, inside and out of the classroom. Even the principal gets into the act with special walks and breakfast for students receiving awards for citizenship and other requirements. It has a good music program including 4th grade violin lessons. They are always uopgrading the program content for physical education, including a small rock wall. They have a new program with an outside controlled envornment for science studies. The teachers are wonderful and care about the individual even though class size has grown rapidly in the past years.
Arizona bullying prevention program, community partnership, active parent organization, centrally located.
