The teachers are amazing. Really caring and concerned, mindful of the trials of deployment. Despite everything else people complain about the teachers here really make a difference. Both of my children had great teachers and are ready for the next school experience. The principal that came on at the begining of 2007 has a lot to learn about military children. The welcoming warm environment at the school has suffered under her guidance. The parking lot is a mess, but walking is a viable option for those who do not ride the bus.
I have 2 kids at Patriot and both of their teachers are excellent! The office staff is very friendly and helpful as well. I agree with the other reviewers that the parking lot/drop off/pick up situation isn't great, but they do have someone out controlling traffic, so that helps. Overall, a great school. My kids are very happy there!
I have boys in 2 grades & both teachers are wonderful-they go above & beyond to help our boys, even calling at home or emailing as needed. Both of my boys will be well prepared for the next school year because of their teachers & their willingness to do whatever it takes to help them suceed. There is always a teacher or staff member (often the principal) or two at the front door to greet students-often by name. They take 'no child left behind' very personally.
Great new school, cool playground. Nice teachers. Very limited area for drop off and pick up. The traffic to take the kids to and from school is very bad.
I have found that Patriot Elementary has a high standard for academic standard and expectation especially for the fourth and fith grade. This agressiveness showed me and my child the importance and true focus of what school is all about which is studying and time mangagment will pay off. The parents have many opportunities to be involved with their child's class room or any many other areas within the school. They also, have available choir and band which involve some after school performances. Overall, I have been a satisfied parent.
This is a wonderful addition to the school community at Fort Carson and the national head start program.
I think all the schools on fort carson are excellent. They are very well structured and are really focused on academic needs of the children.
Wonderful school, wonderful staff. This school is closing and majority of staff is moving to new school, Patriot Elementary. Greater parental involvement is expected at new school as 85% of Beacon's students participated in before/after school daycare. That number will drop.
