They're able to keep their 10 rating by discriminating against kids who need more help! If you don't get the work, they will make your child and you as the parent feel so uncomfortable you leave. It's sad:(
It is truly sad how this school can be the worst for our kids! Administrator and teachers alike have only ONE purpose for our kids! That is to learn the answers to the test! Forget any true academic teaching to our kids at all! Our kids are the ones that will suffer in the long run!
This school is the best! The scores are high and every time a kid gets better at math or ELA! 300 kids got 600 and 5 got double 600! And lots if kids got honor roll and a 4.0! There's no bullying because everyone is nice and if someone is a new student everyone shows them where to go and is immediately friends. Everyone is basically friends. No ones ever left out and the teachers become your friends, too. Though the playground is small and can use some tweaks here and there its great, and there is a huge grassy area to play in! This is the top elementary school in the county, no the district. It's absolutely wonderful!! I highly recommend you send your child to this school.
I have a child in the second grade who attends Nelda Mundy and I have to say her teacher is the "worst" of them all. She is not organized; she is not held accountable for her lack of teaching my child and she does not communicate with me, via email, phone calls, etc. The primary method and focus seems to be on "test taking" and not teaching standards/concepts. I am truly disappointed in this school.
this is the best elementary school you will ever go to!!!!! there is NO bullying and everyone is nice. they have strict rules but a lot of fun activities. top school of the district no doubt. everyone encourages your student to do the best they can. CST scores= AMAZING!!!!!!!!! I LOVE THIS SCHOOL AND I KNOW YOUR STUDENT WILL TOO. 6TH GRADE CLASS OF 2010-2011 SHOUT OUT!
My child attended this school last year. He really enjoyed it for the most part but I did not like the general feel of the school. Traffic is a mess. There is a slew of focus on testing ( good thing) but it's mostly worksheets, worksheets. No hands on activities, no fun experiments, discovery stations, or actual "let's help Tommy think for himself" Instead, teachers are pretty much driven to deliver their curriculum to the students in a wham slam' -memorize this, copy that and burn it in your memory' attitude so they can just throw it back out on state tests so the school can get more funding. As a result, your child will do a lot of memorizing,busy work that focuses on standards but if you want your child to actually try to think for himself and not just do worksheet after worksheet, supplement with something intelligent and go to the library. The positives: A safe and clean school, high quality teachers,nice new principal (although you'll have to explain any of your concerns in a matter of a few minutes before you get rushed out the door....she is very nice but needs to be a little more gracious with her time during parent meetings. Glad we are finally graduated from Nelda.
Great for those of you who can afford to purchase a home in that area. They don't have open enrollment nor are they on the choice list for no child left behind act. It seem segregation at its best and when I write a well thought out letter to the district I am ignored. Your on notice Mundy, I am having a few people look into this matter. 2011
This is definitely a great school overall. I have both of my boys at this school, one finishing 4th grade and the other graduating 6th grade. They both have been here since Kindergarten. I have nothing but positive things to say about the quality of education, the diversity of the school, the support and care of the principal/teachers/staff towards the students, and (as previously stated) the sense of community. I love it here as much as my children do!
