This school should have been shut down when they closed a Marina elementary school. There is zero leadership and in the 6 years my oldest grandson attended he had ONE great teacher. They allow classrooms to be run by abusive, inadequate substitutes for months at a time and there is no continuity. The teacher my youngest grandson had last year was a nightmare- played favorites and created a sense of horrible self esteem to those she didn't care for- which was more than half the class. She had a "seat of shame" and these were second graders. We shared with the school a professional psychiatric evaluation which found that the child she was attempting to label with learning disabilities was in fact suffering from "deep seated anxiety" caused by the TEACHER. Yet she is back and now has the Kindergarten class. Personal information about students is freely shared with other parents and even people on the contact list just picking up a child. This was repeatedly reported and empty promises led to the youngest being pulled out and moved to a better school. Other parents have complained yet it is ignored because mediocrity is the standard at this horrible school. It should be closed down.

I attended the Holiday Concert this evening to see the children sing. I did not see the children due to numerous parents standing in the front and middle aisle. I am disgusted with the behavior of a number of parents at JCCrumpton. Between standing in front of others, talking during the concert and walking around it was a terrible situation. The children sat on the floor in the middle of a group of parents struggling to find a seat. Someone stepped on my granddaughter s hand and she was crying when I could get to her. This is a repeat of the spring concert last year, when the parents trampled some of the kindergarteners to get pictures of their own. The principal and staff did nothing to control the crowd.

I do not have major complaints about the education. I do think they can assign more homework. My child is in 4th grade. The teachers and staff, however, are great! That is why we love JC Crumpton.

Crumpton is al about the kids and work hard with what they are given. The students, parents and teachers have great rapport with each other and are working toward the same goals. Getting a great education for the children. We have a great staff, especially our Principal and secretary. If you must attend this school get ready to be very happy there.

Both of my children attend J.C Crumpton, they feel safe and get along with everyone. The staff is fabulous! I'm very glad to see that it's still the same from when I attended at J.C Crumpton. I would highly recommend J.C Crumpton to anyone who is new to the area with children in elementary school.

Two of my children have attended Crumpton since kindergarten thru 5th and one is still attending for 2 more years. The quality of their education has been outstanding. Teachers are dedicated and work many hours to prepare their lessons. This is one school who still attends science camp, who celebrate Multicultural day and have a wonderful Promotion Ceremony for their 5th graders. The parent involvment in the school is very low but the small amount of parents who are involved seem to bring many great things to the school. Some examples are the educational field trips, and assmeblies. Marina City has many programs. If your looking for sports Crumpton does not offer these but the city does and at a low price.
