Involved, creative parents who think up cool events to support the school. Engaged diverse student community. Very much a neighborhood school.
We have 2 kids at Teller and couldn't be happier - it is a community of support that is really wonderful and I am certain unusual. Parent invlvement is top notch - the teachers and administration are fabulous.
My daughter is in Kindergarten and Teller is definitely a 'different' school than what we're used to. She went to a really great preschool in Castle Rock, CO and in most schools Kindergarten is either half days or every other day. Well Teller kindergarten is like every other grade. A lot of school work and I think they need a little more play/down time at this age. My daughter came home with a project that I had to look up on the internet b/c not even I knew what it was. It is a good school, but I think we are moving to a school back in Castle Rock for first grade and on.
Teller is wonderful. Small, but growing. Diverse without any achievement gap! Strong focus on literacy and getting kids reading early. Great teachers with very low turnover.
Our Teller experiance rates 5 stars. The Teller community maintains an academic priority and excells in teacher, parent and student participation. It is also incidently, a fun place to hang out for parents and students.
My child has attended Teller since ECE now he is a 4th grader. I have always dropped off my child in school with the thinking that he will have a great day of learning,playing and most of all having the knowing that my child will be safe.
I personally think Teller elementary is an 'OK' school, but if your child has learning disabilities, the administration procrastinates, loses paperwork, and basically makes you feel that it's your fault. If your child doesn't fit in their 'cookie cutter views', then look out because you're in for one hard time!
Teller is a great Congress Park neighborhood school. Is it a magnet school? No. Is is an Expeditionary learning school? No. Teller is a school like the one you went to as a kid - unpretentious, parent-involved, kid-friendly...frankly normal! One place to think...Teller represents its' community well - economically and with diversity.
Teller is a good school with a diverse group of kids. The teachers care and the parents back their children all the way. This was my sons first year here in fifth grade and he has been able to excelle the entire year. Teller is indeed a great school for kids!
