My oldest son had been going to Globe since the 2nd grade and has never felt more comfortable at a school and never made to feel that he was different, he came from a school where he was teased . My youngest son has been here since kindergarten and has never had such a wonderful experience with all his teachers and staff. We have always felt welcome and have always been asked to participate and our views on the education and experience that they have been getting at Globe. We have always seen great things happen to both our sons in Globe and great achievements in them since going to Globe. We have never felt that the curriculum has ever been more than they or any other student can handle. The staff has always been understanding in the needs of the students as well as the parents. We could not be more pleased with the school.

I have a kindergartner who can read, write, and do math because of the time and attention of his teacher. The staff at GLOBE make sure every student feels welcome and safe at the school and every student is secure in their environment. Every parent is expected to do their part in helping educate their child which means doing their part in volunteering and being part of the community at the school. GLOBE staff goes out of their way to make sure everyone is welcomed and makes sure that everyone's needs are met and everyone can be worked with. The programs GLOBE puts on are amazing! Way to go!

This School has been an ok school when my daughter started in kindergarten to maybe 2nd grade. After i enrolled my son to 1st grade here with his IEP it started out ok but it all went downhill from there. My daughter is on a 504 and my son on a IEP(which they refuse to test her if she needs an IEP). They Both have of course physical,speech,Ot,play therapy, and maybe 2more therapy's, and on top of that they have specialist appts,doctor. The specialist came from out of town to come to the springs and they DON'T have after school appointments. So you know its imposible to schedule appointments after school because everyone wants those appointments. I was called on a meeting with the District 11 and was put on TRUANCY! they told me at the meeting that if i didn't like the school than go back to your home school (which is Helen Hunt Elementary). The reason i went to globe was because my daughter was there and because the FIRST DAY of helen hunt , they LOST my son. So thats my take on these that basically this District is the worsts! when it comes to ANY KiDs!!!

I really appreciate their 6th grade teacher Mr. Evens. This school was recommended to me by a parent who works with district 11 and she was pleased with the 6th grade education program. My daughter went to this school fighting me all the way. Not wanting to do her best on homework or even try half of the time. But Mr. Evens held her accountable with us to get her on track. By the end of the year, she was coming to me with questions like, "Mom, I don't understand this problem. The calculator said this answer, but I'm getting this one, can you please show me what I'm doing wrong?" The proof is in the pudding. Not to mention the staff and the principle did the best they could to work with us. Parents are very welcome in this school at anytime!

Globe Charter, though once a good school, is the worse school tow hich my kids have ever gone. The principal is horrible, and the teaching isn't much better. There are a few good teachers, but VERY few. My kids won't be going back. Areas for improvement are to stop mass disciplining kids, hire some better teachers and get rid of the current leadership.

The staff is very dedicated. They are willing to spend time before school, at lunch time and they have an after school home work club three days a week. The maximum class size is fixed at 17 so the staff are much better able to provide individual attention to the students. Both of my girls have thrived at the school.

Globe supports EVERY student! We have amazing, caring, and interested staff and teachers.Globe respects and encourages every child to excell and embrace their right to be an individual. With languages such as german and sign being taught from kindergarten up, small classes that allow for one on one teaching, and commitment to school and community, Globe Charter School is the VERY BEST for kids, for parents, for EVERYONE!!

I sent my daughter to this school for a few months and withdrew her because she was beat up twice by another student. After bringing it to the school's attention, they were very quick to dismiss that these things were taking place. Sending my daughter to this school was one of the biggest mistakes I have ever made and I would never recommend this school to anyone.

I have found the quality of foreign language programs to be particularly impressive on the elementary level. As a smaller school, extracurricular activities are sum what limited. Parental involvement is well above average for a school of its size. As a parent, I have found it to be challenging to obtain special education services and the curriculum and overall structure of the curriculum seems to vary substantially between various instructors at the elementary level. This is not a school for a child that requires a good deal of structure in the classroom setting at the early elementary level.

Globe is the ideal learning enviroment for my son. Just in his first year of learning at Globe I see such excitment and enthusiasm in my as he looks forward to attending school everyday. The teachers are very dedicated to what they are doing. He is widely exposed to math, reading, several cultures, spanish, outdoor activites, out of school extracurricular activites such as seeing local plays, social skills and many other wonderful adventures. I am very pleased overall with Globe.
