They have a new principal. The old one was tired and needed to go. She was accusatory and not fit to be in the position that she was in. Why is it that many of the West Side Schools end up with sub par administrators? She did a lot of damage that will take years to get over. Also, why doe the Littleton District have a hard time retaining teachers? It is a revolving door for teachers and this is not good. I wish my daughter could go to some of the better schools like near Scotsdale or Cave Creek. Oh well!!
As a parent I find this school okay...let me stress OKAY, it could be MUCH MUCH BETTER! When walking in the front office you don't feel welcomed at all, the office staff is not friendly and this has been on going for years! My older daughter has had 1 good teacher since attending this school, my next has been lucky to have mostly okay ones and one SUPER exceptional teacher! Ms. Yadon was the best. my youngest has a teacher who didn't even know her kids names or even have a class list upon meeting her. I find her cold and not fit to be working with young children. My only hope is that with the change in administration this year things will improve, previous administration was AWFUL! They took away all the kids rewards, like perfect attendance dress down and spirit week. This district has also implemented make your day program, I ask admin last year about this they said that there is no reward for making your day only consequences for not, unfair to the students who behave and work hard. Reward them, positive reinforcement makes a huge difference! Also none of my kids have been on a field trip in YEARS! Over all not the best school, just "okay". But is so so or okay good enough? NO
Es buena escuela los maestros son muy buenos contestan la llamada o mensaje por cualquier duda que tenga sobre la educacion de mis hijos y las secretarias son excelentes ,solo que la dirrectora nueva para este 2013 la verdad deja mucho que decear.:(
This school has come a long way since its opening years ago. We've had good teachers, excellent teachers and some who's hearts were in the right place but need a little more seasoning, but overall, this school is one of the top in my book. We have a wonderful "community" feel to our school and I like it that way. Sure, you will see some parents and staff who may not have had a great experience for whatever reason, but you will find that anywhere you go. I have always made it my job to stay involved in my children's school, their academics and create an ongoing communication and positive relationship with their teachers. This is the only way to help your child be a success and their school. I highly recommend this school.
Very disappointed in the way they tend to blame the student for everything and dont take in consideration that the teacher is not always in right; getting my kids out and looking forward to a better school that knows how to take better care of their students
I am unsure of the other postings. My experience has been great. My children are with wonderful teachers who care and challenge them. They have had a great year. We love the PUMA Paw recognition when the kids do well on their benchmarks. The gym was filled with happy parents last week for the honor awards. The administration is innovative and caring. They know my children and take time to visit with them each morning. The office staff is warm and welcoming. The building is decorated with student art work and my kids love it!
I love Tres Rios and the new administration! They are definitely committed to making things better for staff, parents, and more importantly for STUDENTS. As a parent, I am happy to see my kids happy to go to school every day because I know they will be safe and they have wonderful teachers!
Bad principal, bad assistant principal = awful school. Students are confused, staff is unappy. Very sad, from what it used to be.
The school has a beautiful facility. And this is the first thing everyone talks about. BUT WHO CARES? Its what inside that counts. So I have been looking for a different school for my kids despite my kids being here since it opened and it being Sept. of the 2011-12 school year. The front office staff are polite. It's just that the scores that are horrible. Over 76% of the population are hispanic. I myself am an American Hispanic but it's hard when the lack of parent involvement is due to the other parents not speaking english. Even homework assignements are bilingual. I have mixed reviews on the teachers. Many teachers were cut. Most teachers are so new that they can't control the class. I don't blame them. It's to bad this "new" facility has to be in the Littleton School District.
Muy linda escuela la mejOr de phoenix limpia el servicio excelente y las maestras muy amables gracias tres r os
This school is very clean and safe. The staff is very caring. I like this school
What a beautiful new facility full of energetic and caring staff. I was pleased when I walked in about how friendly the front office staff was. Then, how cool to see all the technology built right in to the classrooms.
Tres Rios has wonderful, caring teachers that value kids and always put learning first! I feel blessed that this school is in my community!!
Tres Rios has a complete sports season. It is great for an elementary school to have sports available for kids. It will get my kids ready for high school sports. They have uniforms for each sport, and the games are very well organized.
Love the teachers and front office staff. Admin know their stuff. Patient, kind and caring.
Very disappointed in this school. The principal is uninvolved. Can't even make an introduction or participate in chorus and band events. No PTSA involvement and poor recruitment, which means no field trips for younger grades, limited supplies, little creativity. Terrible communication to parents. Scores are low and teachers uninvolved. The armpit of the Littleton District. Challenging academics? If it weren't for supplemental home teaching, we would be two grades behind! Don't wait for this school to teach your child.
I love this school! The facilities are new - and the staff has gone to great efforts to keep it that way. The teachers are great - well-educated and friendly to students and parents. Both of my kids have been going here since the school opened - and they love it!
This is only the school's second year, but the school is off to a great start! Administrators have several years' experience between them, perform their jobs well, and really get to know the kids. It is evident the teachers love what they do, continually seek to improve their teaching skills, and readily go the extra mile to do what they can. Parental involvement could increase. Few parents regularly attend the PTA meetings or volunteer at the school. It is a newer buildiing with new technology used for instruction.
My boys first year was a roller coaster ride to say the least. The teachers had there good and bad as all schools do but the trend that I see is that teachers want respect but continually fail to respect the children. As the school year goes on I see the same things in schools, the teachers loose thier tempor and respect goes out the window. Then begins the downward spiraling of the children hating their school and wanting to learn. In the end Tres Rio's is not an acception to this failing of the public school system. Hire more teachers to spread out the overwhelming numbers of students to teachers ratio. Allocate money away from vandelism repair to the students welfare and education. There is more to be said but I will leave that to someone else.
Not happy about my daughters first year at this school at all. The drop off and pick up situation was horrible(completely unorganized, sometimes I think my child could have been picked up by anyone who tried). Parent/teacher interaction was limited, I only knew what was going on in class if I asked or on open house nights. I would like to think it was only because this was the schools 1st year and it has some things to go over and make better for the following year but I am taking my child out of the district. I can't sit and wait and hope my child doesnt fall behind while the school is getting everything in order.
