Bruce Clifton is an ineffective principal. The only thing we like about the school is a hand full of fabulous teachers!!! The school has gone way down to zero in incentives for the kids with good behaviors and fabulous grades!!! The students are treated like they're in a juvenile detention center where the kids have to squat in the yard like prisoners, now they have their gates to complete their prison. The younger teachers that are now there give out referrals for Nit Picky reasons. The younger teachers have issues with communicating with parents and do not like proactive parents. They love parents that don't care!!! This school is a negative 10!! Real disappointment they are rated a 2 out of 10, like I said the Principal is ineffective!!! VOTE BRUCE CLIFTON OUT OF CARROLL FOWLER!!!
They're a handful of teachers that are amazing!! I believe they should get VOTED for Teacher of the Year!! One already received this honor!!
Mr. Brink, Mrs. Ratajczak, Ms. Highiet,
Ms. Goehring, Ms. Bynum, Mrs. Meece, and Mrs. Calou. That's it out of 28 K - 6th grade teachers that earn the respect to be called Amazing Educators!! They really care about their students and their students future and education!!!
This is a great school! The teachers are very nice and make learning fun. The only complaint I have is that they could spend more time memorizing math facts because it seems that all the kids have trouble remembering them.
Between three children, we have been a Carroll Fowler family for eleven years and we are very pleased with our children's education. Their state test scores are good, the oldest two have excelled in Jr. High and High School and our daughter loves to go to school every day. She has never missed a day in three years. As parents, we try to stay involved in our school and support our teachers and staff. Carroll Fowler has always cared about the students first. We are very proud of the accomplishments the school has made over the years. We have seen many changes and upgrades over time and can honestly say Carroll Fowler gets better every year. We are proud to be Carroll Fowler parents.
My daughter has attended for three years. The first two years I loved. She gets excellent grades however this year I felt she was deprived of some of her education. She was only taken on one field trip. I do like the renissance program because it definately motivates the kids to try their best. I would like to [see] my daughter get more music and technology study. Overall Carrroll Fowler is a good school.
I think that, overall, Carroll Fowler School is quite good. Academically most of the teacher work very hard in providing all students with a quality education. The school has met or exceeded all academic growth targets set by the state. Futhermore, many of the teachers go above and beyond in helping the students. The new Renaissance program has helped many students, including mine, work a little harder academically. I think that the afterschool programs could use a lot of work. It does not seem that children get the assistance they need. It just seems understaffed. While there is a small network of very dedicated parents, it would be great to see even more parents get involved.
If any school, especially carroll fowler school intends to provide excellent education to/for its students, all teachers must know & understand the state & text book scope & sequence. Administration must insist and enforce that each and all textbooks be used daily & judiciously. Without daily use of textbooks, a sequential, uniform curriculum is not taught and students are deprived of a quality education. February is a whole month for teaching citizenship and social studies: 2 presidents birthdays are celebrated in feb. February is too valuable a month to be devoted only to valentine's day. Organized and daily character education and conflict resolution programs and activities must also be modeled and directly taught by all teachers and administration. There are teachable moments every day. Use these to educate students to become informed, productive and quality citizens of this country. Get serious with curriculum. Test with integrity.
I am very glad that my student is attending Carroll Fowler. The teachers are very involved with the community and have the student's best interests at heart. My student loves going to school every day!
From day 1 I realized the quality of school my child now attends compared to the last school. I enjoy the incentives the kids have for doing there best. My boy came from a uniform school (i did not agree with.) Fowler is a no uniform school and it allows the child to make decisions. I am overyl impressed with this school.
