My child transfered to this school from Colorado in October of 2003. Since starting at this school my student has been bullied on numerous occasions and no matter how much I speak to his teacher, there doesn't seem to be any way to resolve the problem. When I spoke to another parent about the problem, I was told to get used to it, I'm in the big city now. To me that is a terrible attitude for any parent to take. As I see it, there is not nearly enough adult supervision going on at this school or the children responsible for the bulling and their parents would be held responsible for their actions. The accademics are OK but nothing spectacular. When this school changes in 2003-2004 to a K-5 instead of the current K-3, I think the problems will only intensify.
Though the other parents comments here seem to be good I have had an awful experience with this school and the faculty. My child was belittled by his teacher and excluded from activities becuase for no other reason then the teacher being upset that I was filing complaints against her, I tried several times to get help from the principal who really did not care what I had to say because I was not a major part of the PTA (though I was a member and did my part volunteering). My child now hates school and has several problems trusting his new school and teachers. I urge all parents to watch what goes on at this school, and listen to your children if they say there's a problem
We have sent two children through Country Hills and our third is there now. I think that probably says it all. I only wish I could go through elementary school all over again and attend such a marvelous school. Learning, sharing, caring and plenty of incouragement is what this school is best at! You can't do better than Country Hills.
Country Hills' innovative teaching philosophy and programs geared toward the primary-aged child make it a warm, encouraging and absolutely magical place to learn. Amazing teachers that instill a sense of responsibility, pride and self-esteem in each child. I cannot say enough good things about this special place.
We love Country Hills! Our son went there for the past 4 years and we think this school is terrific!The best thing about this school is that it is only K-3, so no older kids are influencing the younger ones. Coral Springs is a great city with great schools, parents and teachers!
