Morning Creek Elementary School
Teacher effectiveness: Ineffective

They guage their classes on the stronger studenta and literally leave others behind. No proper instructions are given, just a bunch of papers handed out to clueless kids. Kids who pass are thoroughly home taught and rely on outside education programs. If you are counting on your child learning here, good luck!

Once they blacklist you, they will firm endless documentation against your child even whilst pretending to work with you. They are not trustworthy. I suggest that all parents with kids having trouble in the school ask for their kids file from the office. You have a right to ask and it just may supreme you what theyes put down

They do not treat boys fairly. And basically a lack of respect for a parent is a lack of respect for a child.

Excessive punishment like 6 hrs detentions. No corporation with parents and an insensitivity to minority cultures. Basically, if you're not Asian, you are treated like a non factor.

They only care about being right and do not consider that each child is different. They are rude to and often provide misleading information to parents and when questioned acquire a vendetta stance against you and your child instead of working with you. There is no proper responsibility on the teacher's part and a culture that is somewhat anti-boys.

School is overcrowded causing teachers to act frantic. Class size is in the 30+, funnels into an equally overcrowded middle school. Second year with two kids in this school and can't tell that any real teaching has been accomplished. Lacks programs in Art and computer, music program is minimal. Facilities need upgrading.

We have 2 children in MCES. We moved out of PUSD but loved the school so much we chose to transfer back to Morning Creek the drive is worth it. Each child is cared for and children that struggle are assisted where possible. The school encourages parents to be involved as much or as little as they wish. The campus is clean and secure. Recess is monitored by Teachers and Yard Duty officers. There are many activities for children before and after school including; running club, an art program and a science club, drama, chorus to name a few.

I have two children at MCES--one in 5th grade, and one in kindergarten. The teachers are extremely committed and the principal is extremely visible. She makes an effort (and succeeds) at knowing every single child's name, siblings, and parents. It's incredible. She is calm, fair, and shows no favoritism, just as a school leader should be. While the campus is older than many in Poway (oh, how I envy the hi-tech facilities at Del Sur), the environment has a lot of positive energy. There is a strong community of parent volunteers, as well, who don't "look down" on working parents, but welcome them when/if they can participate as well. The combination of parents-teachers-and principal work to make school a wonderful and safe environment for the kids.
