Country Club Elementary School5

My daughter is almost finishing Kindergarten and we cannot be happier with Country Club. All the Kindergarten teachers are VERY experienced and are truly amazing teachers! I am happy with how much they push academically too. Parents are all super friendly. We are so fortunate to be in Country Club community.
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.
