Folsom Elementary School5

My opinion about Folsom Elem. Is that this school is great. This school has great teachers, it's very clean, & has a great principle. My son loves this school. His teacher is Ms.Boehm ,and she is by far the best teacher he's had since attending Folsom. The school is very clean. But I do think the bathrooms in the classrooms should be cleaned better. The bathrooms always have a strong urine odor. The principle I think is very decitated to her job and cares so much for the children & their education.
It a good school buy I think they should enforce uniform's I think that all schools should wear uniforms this is the only school I know that's not in uniform I think the school board should make it mandatory for all schools in Hillsborough County Elementary and middle school's
My son is doing well here, he came from out of state and is repeating 3rd grade. His teacher quite halfway through the year but his new teacher is better than the last. He had a problem with a kid in his class and was interviewed by the school about the situation and it was resolved. One thing I don't like is the lower grades have lunch too early. My son has lunch at 10:30 in the morning and school doesn't let out until 2:15. He is very hungry at the end of the day.
I agree that Folsom has gone down over the last several years with their leadership team and quality of education that the children get. I had to pull my children out of the school two years ago and now they are doin much better in a magnet school.
Folsom has declined so much over the years. The current leadership is aweful. Most of the communications from the school have so many errors you would think that the kids were sending them. Wrong dates or wrong days on almost all of them, especially with the after school program.
My child transferred here from a private school and we were somewhat leary of moving her to a public school. But my child's teachers are awesome and she has a good time each day in class. Folsom is either back to an A rated school now or they are/were very close, I can't recall. The school meets my expectations and seems to provide a safe educational environment.
