The teachers and staff are very involved with my children. Emails get sent home anytime there are any behavior issues or missing work.
pre K is very involved and the teacher are very helpful! My daughter has learned so much in such a short time. Unfortunate that the principal left so suddenly.
Great teachers and staff. The encouragement of success for all students is awesome. Fitness is a big deal for kids health.
My child attends this school in the kindergarten class. I could not ask for my a better school. The curriculum is great. The teachers as well as staff is very involved in the child's education as well as the child's well being. I am very pleased with my choice of schools for my son to attend! Keep up the great work!
I am impresssed with the schools enthusium in getting the children interested in learning, They offer after school tutoring that has helped my child achieve the honor roll this school year.
My child's teacher has gone out of her way to partner with me on the most appropriate approach for my daughters education.
I am very pleased with Imagine Elementary at Tempe. I was so excited we were able to get our children registered this year. Mrs. Geiogamah and Mrs. Kelly are fantastic teachers. Their daily communication with me about my children is fantastic. I couldn't ask for anything more!!! Looking forward to many more years! Thank you!! Linda
Imagine tempe is a good school. Teachers are great. They do everything possible for my kids to strive and get to to their goals whether its reading. Math.or any other testing..front desk faculty is also very nice and helpful.. would like to see more holiday celebrations and not so many "days off". Thanks:)
Imagine Tempe is a great alternative to public schools. My child has been going for 2 years, she started in kindergarten and I plan to continue until 8th grade. The faculty really cares about each child and listens to what the parents have to say. I've seen some poor reviews, but I believe the problem those parents had is they weren't actively involved. The teachers are available via email, phone, and most will stay after school to address any concerns. My first grader is above her grade level in all subjects and I feel it is because the staff actually cares. Mrs. Kelly (1st grade) is a phenomanal teacher and excellent at providing feedback and communication. I could go on and on about this school, but feel I have made my point. You will not be disappointed
We love Imagine Tempe! This year marks my daughter's third year, and she loves her teachers, and enjoys the learning environment. I appreciate the care in which most of the teachers place on education, character building lessons and anti-bullying environment. We appreciate Imagine Tempe Elementary!
Such a good school for my kiddos. They are safe, thriving and growing. They offer tutoring and keep open communication. The principal is serious about the growth of the students and school as a whole
A terrible school. Although, the school has a decent curriculum, the administration offers no support to the family and students for those children that are struggling a bit. I would not recommend this school to anyone by far.
Imagine Tempe is a personable school with a very positive and friendly environment. They are great at keeping parents updated with events and email/telephone reminders of upcoming activities that the students are participating in. Their breakfast and lunch program is great. The menu is very healthy with a variety of choices for the kids. Overall, Tempe Imagine is outstanding in all aspects as far as academics. I'm so glad I chose this school for my Kindergartener.
This school was terrible. The teacher kept changing for art, computers, GYM, and even the regular teacher. The students were allowed to watch movies like the Lorax for gym time. My child did not feel liked or welcomed by anyone including her own teacher.
I picked this school when we got custody of our two kids, they were going to a public school where my daughter were making all F's and my son had some special needs that weren't being met. At this school, my daughter has blossomed in her 4th grade class. She absolutely loves her teacher, something that hasn't happened in her school experience. Both kids did complain at first about the school being too small, about having to wear uniforms, about the food they have there, but the complaints has lessened the longer they attend Imagine Tempe. They have only been there since October 2012, so I can't really say more about this school but what I see so far, is wonderful faculty at Imagine who truly care about the students. I highly recommend this school only for 1st-5th graders.
They have a test rating of 4 out of 10. 10 is the highest. That is all that needs to be said about the teachers.
My son attended Imagine Tempe for kindergarten, first, and second grade. As parents, we decided it would be best academically to enroll him in our home school because it is an A++ Excelling school. Imagine Tempe had dropped from a Performing Plus school to one that was in improvement and it was definitely evident when we saw the academic deficits that my son had in 3rd grade at his new school. He is now in fourth grade and continuing to make up for the lack of education he received the three years he attended the school. As parents, we have had to spend over six thousand dollars in outside tutoring because he is still playing catch up. I wish that I would have moved him after kindergarten when we had planned to and then he wouldn't be struggling so much in school. I do not recommend this school to any parents looking for a new place for their child.
My daughters enrolled in Imagine this year after several years of homeschooling, and they love it! The teachers care, the front office staff is very helpful and knowledgeable, and their core subjects are spot on with where they need to be in each grade. I will continue to support Imagine and recommend it to my friends as a great alternative to traditional public schooling.
I pulled my kids from this school to homeschool. Come to find out my daughter who was passed on to the next grade was not taught anything. I have to restart 4th grade with her. Tutoring is available at Imagine, but I was never told that she needed it. My other daughter's teacher told me that she need tutoring and she was going, but my eldest was completely unprepared for the next grade. It really saddens me. I will give them props, because they are starting to change the school. I hope that they continue to make those changes.
I was a former parent who pulled their child after 2 years there. THey didn't receive the proper education or teachers didn't get the proper support from admin since they were most new. Unfortunately, they care more about the numbers and not about the kids. The test results for the last few years are a direct reflection of this and the inexperienced teachers who come from an "agreed upon partnership with the parent corporation" are not trained accordingly. The new teachers are not true educators and only have 1 summer of experience before they are thrown into their first year of school. How can a shool go from Performing to Improvement in 1 year. They fire all of the good teachers who have a voice. Also, the school is underfunded by the parent corporation. In the end, they have to cut specials like library, computers, art and pe because they can't afford them. I would not recommend this school to any parent who actually cares about their child's education.
