Cherrelynn Elementary is a Fantastic school! It's a smaller school with attentive teachers, staff & cares about the community! We've had nothing but a wonderful experience :-)

The leadership of this school leaves much to be desired. She seems friendly but hasn't demonstrated the ability to take to Cherrelyn to a higher level. If anything, the school has regressed under her watch. The staff is a mixture of experienced veterans and untested young people. They all seem earnest in their efforts, but I've witnessed them passing failing students up the line, leaving another colleague to provide remedial teaching for concepts children should have already learned. The specials teachers, specifically the P.E. teacher, the art teacher, the music teacher and the computer lab proctor, seem to have their stuff together. The school itself is a woefully inadequate facility. The largest common area serves as the cafegymatorium, providing space for physical education, lunch and special programming, including serving as a venue for the before and after school program. The cafegymatorium often reeks of the stench of spoiled milk. There is an unwelcome uncleanliness about much of the school, as I've often picked up litter inside the building and on the grounds. The outdoor playground equipment is worn and, in some cases, very unsafe for especially young children.

Cherrelyn offers a great community feel. The children and the teachers connect well with one another. The principle is really nice. She may not always have a minute right then to talk to you, but if you work with her and the office, time will be made. Sadly, I think most of the complaints made in these reviews could be solved with more parent envolvement. As a parent who has both been the drop and go, and the volunteer and help sort, if you can participate in the school, experience is better. They are working on improving state test scores, but also, working to ensure the kids understand. I have noticed from personal experience with my own children currently attending, that they don't wait for the kids to fall behind before they have an intervention, rather they try to catch the students back up prior to them failing. Overall, as with any school you receive what you put forth into it,

All three of our kids love this school, in fact our oldest has done better here then at field elementary! The teachers here care and really work with the kids and parents

Very disappointed, especially in the administration. The principal is cold and anti-social, she will find just about any excuse possible to avoid sitting down with a parent to discuss any issue. Additionally, it appears the admin is more concerned with keeping teacher salaries in check than they are in keeping strong teachers on staff. Some very well respected teachers were non-renewed and replaced with teachers right out of college this past year, and with such low scores and students below grade level, how can you afford to not have strong teachers on staff? All in all, Cherrelyn is a mediocre school with poor administrative leadership.

Speechless- just speechless. Unpleasant experiences caused my family to find a different district to call home.
