I was intimidated at first because this is a "D" rated school....I decided to give it a chance anyway and it was the best decision ever. The teachers go the extra mile for the kids....the counselors are always available and understanding. My son who is in 4th grade is a special needs student and he loves it there, he does not feel "different" and even wakes himself up to go to school! I say parents...don't let your decisions be guided by the grade the school has...give it a try...you will not regret it!
The teachers are very unprofessional.Parents are afraid to complain because the don't want they don't want their kids to be tormented by the teachers. They bring their personal problems to school and take it out on the poor defenseless children. As a parent, I feel very helpless!
The worst staff I ever seen.
Stop kids from drinking water, for no reson in the front office
Staff in the front office never smile.
The principal has an excuse for every complain.
If you have a better alternative, don't even try. All fake attitudes.
If you dont live in the neighborhood don't bother sending your child to this school. On my way to get my child out of this school . The magnet program is ok, but do you want to send your child to a D school with wild,rude, disruptive kids for about a hour plus of technology or Legos a week? The stories my child comes home with is unbelievable. It's not worth it. Plus they cancel magnet because they have such low reading and math scores that they do remediation with a program on the computer during that magnet time. My child doesn't need remediation. She hates it. Its a joke. Had to talk to a my child's teacher one morning and no one is supervising any of the students upstairs. It was a madhouse. At car pick up teachers with their backs toward the cars talking and on the phone. No one paying any mind. Be warned all they want is warm bodies at this school and the magnet head lady will say anything for you send your child to that school. Don't go, you'll regret it.
My school is colbert elementary THEY HAVE THE WORST FRONT OFFICE STAFF EVER. YOU ARE AFRAID TO APPROACH BECAUSE OF THEIR FACIAL EXPRESSIONS AND BODY LANGAUGE. KINDERGARTENERS NEED AGENDA BOOKS AND THEY REALLY NEED TO BE TAUGHT BETTER
My school, is Colbert Elementary. There wasn't a "o" star because that is what I would of rated it. Same thing as last year .......no progress no information when you call...no-one knows anything!! Let's talk about their website..same as last year nothing new posted. Check it out...school has started and when you check out the school calender for August, September, etc nothing is scheduled. Really the school has nothing going on for the 2013 school year so it's left blank. Same problem as last year...no one updates it and when you call the school for information no-one knows anything. Same thing no improvement that I have seen. Lets get it together people!!!!
