Our child attended kindergarten this past year and we were very pleased with Country Club. The parent involvement is excellent- they encourage parent volunteers in the classroom- and all of the kindergarten teachers were wonderful.
I was intially disappointed that my child wasn't being challenged academically or intellectually but overall Country Club is a very good school. I just wish there was a way to provide a more challenging curriculum to the more advanced students.
My daughter was here for 6 weeks and we had to withdraw her due to unsatisfactory standards by the professionals. She had a nice teacher however, she was picked on for baseless reasons and teaching standards were very low. The principal and admin staff were not much help either. When i asked if she could be challenged academically, i was told she had to come down to their teaching level. I took her out and transferred her to a private school and had no regrets whatsoever academic wise.
What makes Country Club Elementary a terrific school is the dedication of both parents and teachers. From the Kindergarten teacher who has been there for 36 years and is still excited by each and every new student to the strong parental participation in the social and educational elements of the school. I am thankful to have my child surrounded by such compassionate and committed people.
This school has good parents but average learning. The kids didn't learn a lot in school and most of the time the teacher just talks about things that don't do with studying. The time is all wasted. You go to school everyday most of the day. and then... you come back learning very little. So little that you can't see what you learned.
This year was an important transistion year for our children. The classroom has been full of inconsistencies, lack of structure, and utter chaos. This has affected some kids more than others. Teacher seems overwhelemed and not really on top of things. I think it has been distracting some kids and their feeling lost in the classroom. A very disapointing year! Not sure if we'll be attending this school next year.
Yes they have great test scores in a state recognized district but I'm not seeing the pay off. Kids who need extra help are left behind and offered no assistance! We will be leaving this school ASAP!
This is my son's 1st year (Kindergarten) and we are very happy. He's had such a positive experience. Fantastic parent involvement. The district in general is not the place to be if your child has special needs, but for us we've had a great experience.
Overall a good school, but there is an administrative mentality of maintaining a status quo rather than trying to move ahead. Some teachers have been there too long, are basically on auto-pilot and are not held accountable for their performance. Excellent parent involvement.
All my children's teachers have been excellent. Wonderful parent involvement at the class and PTA level. Fourth graders get to go on a 5-day outdoor school to Coloma to study California history. The school has a great chorus, band and strings program. Each class has their own garden plot to grow vegetables and flowers. They have an artist come to each class and help them with projects throughout the year. The school has a science dome. At lunch time, the children can come and do science experiments and care for small animals. The children get to have fun learning while making pizza geography. There is a school-wide sports Field Day in the spring. The staff is caring. This is a great school to attend!
My son was fortunate to have four great teachers in first and second grade. The administration was very helpful (if a little slow) when I wanted to have him tested for a learning disability. When the results showed that he just needed a little more time to complete assignments, the principal was very supportive and spoke with his teachers on the subject. Overall, we were very happy with the school, quality of the teachers, and the curriculum.
Poor and mileading curriculum and follow up for special needs students,teachers not held accountable, left district for this reason
This school needs to address its inefficiencies in its administration. The Principal, though a nice man, does not exercise his authority for the betterment of the school. I was extremely impressed with my daughter's kindergarten teacher, Mrs. Miller. She is a gem who really understands that each child is an individual with different likes & learning styles.
We were disappointed in the way in which a child with an obvious learning disability was handled. The teachers were knowledgable and kind enough, but their handling of a delicate situation left a lot to be desired. The principal was barely involved - and everyone seemed willing to pass the buck to an outside psychologist before even attempting to put assistance in place.
Great school, great teachers, on-site before and after school care- very convenient and not too expensive.
