The 2013 school year is underway and I am pleased with the results I am seeing with my 3rd grader and 5th grader. Both my children have commented on how much they like their teachers. However, I would like to see more of a diverse (African American) teaching staff as well as facility members.
All I can say is thank goodness our transfer to a different school went through! I'm sure there are worst schools in the area but Crescent isn't far behind. The kids are mean, they cuss, bully and are out of control. The only thing that gets done to try to control it are the teachers screaming and yelling. We complained about our kids being bullied and the child lied so the whole situation was brushed under the rug. Both of my kids' grades dropped (our first year moving there). One of my kids were moved from class to class, 3 different teachers in a year then a sub about the last 5 weeks. So make that 4 teachers. It was suggested I try to get my kids in the PEP program. For what? To have paret volunteers teaching my kids?? My suggestion, do your homework and get on a waiting list for a transfer!
Horrible, horrible! Rudest teachers, principal, and office staff. There is no education for my child. The parent volunteers are used as some kind of sick substitute for the teacher. So my child is going to school to be taught by parent volunteers? How does that work? Later my child told me his teacher made fun of him by calling him another child's name! Absolutely heartbreaking. For the sake of your child, explore your options. The school district should give this school a major upgrade with some improvement for the poor kids and parents stuck going there.
I absolutely "HATE" this school!!! This is by far the worse school my kids ever attended. The only diversity in this school is campus help. There is absolutely no diversity with the faculty what so ever! Not one minority teacher in the whole school. The only focus is how to fill in a bubble for standardize testing. They use the majority of the school year brainwashing the children about testing, but no academic focus at all. This school is a bonified daycare...If you have other options for your child, please explore them! Out of all the teachers, there are only about 3 who really have the kids best interest, the rest only want a check without the stress...
It is a wonderful, diverse, full-of-love place to work, learn and be a community.
Crescent Elementary is undeniably the best school ever. Whenever I interact with any employee, they are all smiling. In this day and age, with our troubled economy, to have a workplace where people are happy to be there, is huge! More importantly, I know the teachers truly love the children and want for them to achieve the height of their potential.
My child is in Kindergarten and is doing 1st grade work. The teachers there care about each child and how they excel. This is a wonderful school and I am so happy my child gets to be a part of a school where rhe teachers care about him and every student individually. My child loves this school and every day is excited to attend to see what the next day will bring to him.
Teachers are great, admin is awlful. Poor choice for new principal and not concerned for parents request or concerns. The district needs to fix the principal problem asap.
Crescent is a beautiful new school full of energized teachers. The new principal is less then desirable.
Last years principal brought the school down and the new principal will bring it down even more. Mr. Marshall was a terrible choice for principal. Not a coincidence that he was chosen by the past principal. While at Rod High, he brought the school scores down terrible. His leadership and integrity was lacking. I am not looking forward to the direction this school is heading.
The principal has really brought the school down. She has no contact with parents nor the students. There is no incentive nor school spirit. Most of the teachers are great.
I also do not think that the principal is very good. She is not easily accessible to speak with. The teachers there are wonderful, especially the PE teacher, Mrs. L, and the art teacher Mrs. Loveall. Bottom line, put in a true educator and the schools test scores will improve.
I have two children at Crescent Elementary and we have had a great experience. I have to say that my children are at Crescent, but they are in the Partnership for Educational Progress program (PEP) and it's awesome! Parents must work in class at least three hours a week for each child enrolled -up to so many hours ;-). So, on most days there is one teacher and 3-4 parent helpers and PEP offers smaller class sizes. Crescent has a fantastic art program with full time art and music teachers. And a PTA with wonderful parents trying to make a difference in the lives of all the families attending Crescent and the surrounding community. Just remember what you put into your child's education is what you will get out.
I think that this school is definately trying but due to alot of behavior problems and lack of parental support the school continues to struggle.
This is a good school. The traffic situation when school lets out, is unorganized and at times very frustrating.
Teachers are so great, staff is responsive and overall, great school. The only problem with the school is the drop off/pick up of your child. Traffic is a major problem.
The teachers and staff are the best, they are so easy to talk to especially the lady that works at the school library (Mrs. T).
