J Michael Conley Elementary School At Southwood5

Conley is a fantastic school!This is my sons first year and so far we have been very happy there. All the members of the staff are very involved and take the time to get to know each child on a first name basis whether they are in their class or not. My son has learned so much already and amazes us so much everyday with what he has learned. His favorite class is P.E. which we never thought he would like but the coaches are amazing and make it fun. We will be very sad to leave this school when we move.
We love everything about Conley! The teachers are wonderful and there are many opportunities for parents to get involved. My daughter always seems to have something that she's looking forward to at school. I also like all the precautions that are in place to keep the children safe. The school is secure while the students are in class and the car pick-up and drop-off line is very organized. I REALLY wish there was a middle school and high school in SouthWood!
This is our 2nd year at Conley and both my daughters love it here. The faculty and staff are wonderful. I just wish they would add a middle school to Conley. Because of that we may be moving when my daughter starts middle school. Heard nothing but bad news about the middle school they are zoned for. Sad because we love it here in SouthWood.
We love Conley! We love that the school site is secure, and that the teachers are kind. We love that they are fairly strict with the students (not a bad thing!!) and that our child learned so much while there.
My son is a 4th grade student at Conley. He loves the school and his teachers! The school environment encourages him to think outside-the-box and for himself. His teachers encourage him to reach for his goals and the principal and assistant principal are both very involved. We love being apart of the Conley family!
We are a military family and moved here in October 2011, son goes to Conley! So glad we moved in this school zone! School has Great caring teachers and an involved principal. Wish we could stay at this school for our sons entire elementary school years. Its going to be difficult to find another school like this one. 5 stars!
My daughter has been at Conley since the school opened in 2007. Since then, there have been two principals, both of whom are/were very actively involved in the school community. I have been pleased with the leadership overall. The school staff is okay. There are some members of the personnel who are not the most friendly and inviting, and some of the teachers seem a bit in experienced especially in classroom management. Still, the school has a lot of resources which is good for the students. The PTA is a bit "stay-at-home-mom"-centric, but I guess that comes with the area of town. My biggest complaint is that there are a lot of events planned during working hours, making it difficult for many parents to participate. The school is diverse, but I'm not sure all of the staff is appropriately sensitive to issues of students of other ethnicities.
