Killybrooke Elementary School5

Ms. Villa is absolutely wonderful, I could not ask for a better teacher for my daughter! She is attentive and is great with her students. My daughter loves her so much! She is always there's for the parents and answers all emails within 24 hours. I wish my daughter was able to go through elementary school with Ms. Villa as her teacher.
Killybrooke is excellent school!! Mrs.Green,Mrs.Via and Mrs.Clifford,they are the most amazing teachers.They love teaching and care about students. My son was so happy to go to school and learn new thigs every day. He didn't like weekends because he couldn't go to school. Unfortunately, we had to move to another city and we had to pull him out. My son misses his teachers and friends and his new school is not so good as Killybrooke...
The teachers are excellent. 2 of the 3 teachers of my kids are a bit 'icy', socially speaking, to myself and with my kids, but I am less concerned with that, and more concerned with their ability to educate, which is quite good. The principal has been very responsive to 2 seperate social situations that were stressful to my children. She immediately took action and was very professional and caring with them and myself. They have an excellent college-bound brainwashing program going, and it is great to hear kids chant everyday that they are college bound! And it sounds genuine, like they really mean it! I have been in the neighborhood for 10 years, but waited until Killybrooke improved their scores before putting my kids in. I am glad the principal has improved the school, for not only my kids, but especially for the at-risk youth in our neighborhood.
Killybrooke has some of the most qualified and most outstanding teachers in the District. However, the principal lacks true leadership skills, the ability to meet the needs of and retain top-notch teachers, and the ability to provide adequate discipline at her site.
I admire lots of great teachers who are there because they love to teach and understand the kids and treat them like one. Ms. Goodenough, Shafeir, Mr..Moe, Mrs. Corral, just to name a few. But those who yell at the kids need to be remind that they are teaching elementary school children. They are growing up and are learning.
