Update to comment left 10-11-11: I have nothing but positive feedback about Hubert O Sibley Elementary. I found out that you can go online to review and print school calandars!! What an awesome tool, as this information is always available at my fingertips if I should ever need it :) My daughter got an even BETTER report card this time, her teacher is very helpful; she sends the kids with access to the internet home with great learning sites to complete 3x weekly to enrich their minds, while having fun & learning!! My daughter gets excited about her homework, and we reward her for her good behavior! We are very pleased with this school, and would be more than happy to send her back for 1st grade. :)
Here we go again, I am really upset with this school once again. Over the spring break the children were sent home with a project to do that was supposed to be due on March 22, 2012 so the paper says. Yesterday my daughter comes home to tell me that she is going to get a lower grade on the project because she didn't turn it in the first day back from spring break which by the way is MARCH 19TH!! I called the school to talk to the teacher (which I do all the time) but NOW all of a sudden you can't get transferred to classrooms. Where is the notice that this is no longer in effect? Not to mention a couple of weeks ago my daughter missed her bus because the substitute wouldn't let them out because the kids were talking? I was no where near the school and I had no one to pick her up ALTHOUGH I pay for her a ride home. This is crazy! This school is so unorganized and needs to really get things together and find some more friendly office staff. My daughter will be transferred OUT of this school next year!
The thing I hate about this school is that I am never updated about my child's progress. Once you see a child failing a parent teacher conference should be initiated or a phone call before it gets abhorrently worse. My daughter's progress is steadily declining and I received not one phone call. Today I tried to call the office at 3:15pm (please keep in mind the office closes at 4:00p.m.) NO ANSWER! It's 3:45 and still no answer. I am really fed up with this school you have no idea!
Last year, they were a 'D' school. This year, they're an 'A' school. Obviously, they're doing something right! The teachers I have met are very passionate about helping the children succeed. I recommend the school- but not the Aftercare program. That is awful and should be used only if you have no other options.
It's pretty Good but Parent aren't always updated about things we should know
As a parent of a child at Hubert O. Sibley I believe a system should be in place for picking up kids from after school care. Should there already be a system in place it needs to be enforced.
My child has improved, but I was not very happy with the kindergraduation while other school held events for the kinder this school did nothing. I am a mother of a only child and feel like I was robbed of this special moment. I am unsure about the future of this school again, my 1st grader attending this school year with no teacher she has had a sub for the first week of school in addition no school supply list nor a little teacher meeting before the school year started disappointment! is the only thing I can think of when I hear the name of the school. I may transfer.
Hubert is a great school. Great administration and faculty committed to student achievement
Most of the teachers at Hubert O Sibley seem concerned about the children's welfare, but I have to say that I have come across some who don't really seem to like their job. The principal seems rather distracted most times. I have been fortunate that I feel my child has a teacher that genuinely cares about the children.
I am more than pleased with Hubert Sibley. My child came from Miami Park where I was totally dissatisfied with the Principal, Asst. Principal, aftercare and some of the teachers. My child is energized and feels happy. He is being challenged now and the activities offered are geared towards his learning with fun as apart of the curriculum. Thanks.
