Allen Frear is an amazing school. As soon as you walk in the door you feel the pride. The teachers treat the students with respect and listen to the child's needs. The teachers are readily available and respond to communications in a timely manner. I would highly recommend this school.
My daughter just started at this school and in just a short time, I know I made the right decision to move from a failing district to this one. She is happy when she goes off in the morning and cant wait to tell me about her day when I get home from work. Hopefully the best is yet to come! I will do a follow-up review at the end of the year but all indications are she is going to have a great year with some great teachers!
You will find few schools as amazing as Allen Frear. They truly stand by their motto, "One Team. One Goal. No Limits." Everyone works together to help each and every student reach his or her potential: teachers, staff, administration, and volunteers. There is a strong PTA there, taking many opportunities to support the students and staff and encourage parental involvement. Frear was just honored by the Lt. Gov with a parental involvement award thanks to its Frear's Frequent Flyers program. The principals have the well-being and safety of the students in mind with every decision they make. It's a fun place to be and students achieve there. I would recommend Allen Frear to anyone moving to the area.
This is a great school with great parent involvement. Teachers take the time to help the children on many levels. The principals make this school great. More parents need to take the time to meet the teachers and staff and get involved to see what's happens on a daily basis and they will see how well our kids are cared for.
This school is OK. The staff work hard and seem to really want the best for the children. The curriculum is so-so. An advanced or gifted child would probably be bored. I wish this school did a better job communicating with families and encouraging parental involvement.
The administration and teachers really care about the students and work together to help every single student achieve success.
I am disgusted with this school. It does not care about the individual child and only on how the children do as a whole on the DSTP to make the school look better. My son in second grade does not even get spelling tests anymore each week. When I asked for extra math homework I was told they dont have the resources and they dont send it because not all parents help their kids. The kids are not challenged and if they are behind in reading you are betting off going to Sylvan. The title program is a joke. My son will no longer be going there next year and I am afraid to see how far behind he will be next year. Dont bother asking for help, everyone is too busy passing the buck. If you can avoid it dont send your child here. You will be disappointed. I am!!
