If you are looking for freindly, warm and happy school for your child/ren to go and enjoy every moment Calabsh is your school, when your child wakes up in the morning and is happy to go to school you know that you picked the winner school.
Calabash Elementary School is a gem of a school, a hidden secret. There are no bad teachers!!!! It is a well run school with students learning and having fun while they do it. Come check it out!
Calabash has a new Assistant Principal who is extremely friendly and approachable creating a more inviting environment at the school. The school has a beautiful campus. Parents are active. Great small school.
This has to be one of the most beautiful campus's of any school. I have been with Calabash for many years, and the Assistant Principals change every year. It's a great student body.
Overall a nice small school,but due to it's size too many split classes. Principal lacks charisma and warmth and seems to discourage parent involvement. Some teachers are great and some are mediocre, but since school is so small there is far fewer options if your child gets one of the less inspiring ones.
My child and I both love Calabash! Everyone knows each other and we have had excellent teachers each year. The one year the teacher my daughter was assigned to was not a good fit the principal immediately suggested moving her to what turned out to be the perfect classroom for her. The other kids are generally good and we have not experienced any real problems with teasing or bullying in the years she has been there.
Calabash was a terrible experience for my child. The class was geared toward the students on the bottom of the learning curve. The classroom was dull and uninviting. There are some well meaning and hard working PTA moms. I agree, don't let the test scores fool you. Not the place for a motivated learner.
If your child is motivated to learn then run far away from Calabash. The teachers teach to the bottom level of the class, so any high achieving kids are bored to tears. The principal is not willing to talk with parents regarding concerns. There are a few hard working and dedicated PTA moms, but the school as a whole is very poor. Don't let the test scores fool you.
Calabash is an amazing school with an incredible Assistant Principal and Principal. The teachers are always working hard to bring out the best in their students. The small campus size ensures that my children are not anonymous, but rather, are cared for.
Fantastic, new Library Media Center and Computer lab. Before and after school care, reading, music and art programs, homework club, safe, separate kinder areas, amazing Special Ed classes, recently a California Distinguished School. Teachers creative, caring...happy, happy kids. Parent volunteers,though few, are incredibly dedicated.
Calabash is not a good school due to classroom are small and overcrowded, teachers are not very nice, not organize except very few of them. This school needs a new management team.
If you care about your childs emotional and academic wellbeing this is not the school for you. The lower grade teachers are rude and uncaring and the principal is worse.
The teachers are wonderful. Discipline and student safety are a high priority but academics top all. The teachers, like everywhere else in California are competing for test scores. No extraciricular programs but the they do have afertschool supervised playground time.
There is no GATE program or SAS. Playgrounds are limited to bounderies for each grade. School has a lot of combined grade classrooms. Principal is unapproachable and rude. Academics are adequate for the average student
This is a very fine school. School leaders are extremely caring. Parents are very much involved in this school.
The school has small class sizes and a very nice principal. They recently put in a new library and it's beautiful. Many of the programs are funded by donations and the parents are very involved in the improvement of the school's facilities.
My friends child graduated and she is very happy with the teachers and overall program
great school ,very good teachers good art program some music and sports parents are very involved
