Miller <3 ~ Cheyenne V. !
Great school. With the exception of my daughters 3rd grade teacher who now teaches 5th grade, the teachers are WONDERFUL! My daughter LOVES going to school this year thanks to a SUPERB 4th grade teacher who makes the kids want to learn.
the school itself is not too bad. But, the whole time my son went there, the parents of the students were weird, wouldn't speak and just overall uninvolved. Coming from Alabama, its hard to go into a school where people are not friendly. Other than that and a bad 5th grade teacher, all was good!
Proud Panter Parent! I have 1 child in Panter now and 1 that will be starting in the fall of 08. We love the staff from the principle to the assistants. The music, art, PE, media center, and even Ms. Penley's (Guidance Counselor) safety, etc. sessions have left a positive impression on my child. Mr. Denise, the principle, keeps the parents up-to-date via newsletters and the entire school staff is friendly and helpful. We especially love Ms. Willingham, 2nd grade teacher. Thank you all for giving our children such a great experience!
I have one child that attends Panter. I love this school. Everyone from the Prinicipal to the staff are great. The PTA is wonderful. I think it is the parents that need to get involved though. Had a PTA meeting tonight and there were about 3 parents there. That is sad on the parents part.
I have 2 children who attend Panter & have been extremely pleased. Mr. Dennis is wonderful as is his office staff. We have been very lucky in the fact that our children have had great teachers. I would like to say that I think the PTA is doing a fine job considering each one of the board members are new this year & have no prior experience. Such a role takes time to perfect if there is such a thing. The meetings this year have been monthly (with the exception of Nov & January) which I like & is much improvement to the 4 meetings we had last school year.
I'm a Panter Parent and I have nothing bad to say about this school at all and believe me I've been looking. My child enjoys his teacher and I see progress on a daily basis with his development. I appreciate Mr. Dennis' staff always going out of their way to assist the children. However, I would like to see improvement in the PTA. The meetings are not regular and the communication needs much improvement.
We love Panter! We are a school choice family and couldn't imagine our son at any other school. Principle Dennis and his entire staff, both administrative and teaching are outstanding! This is our 4th year as proud Panter Parents. There are only 2 areas that we feel could be improved on since the rezoning that took place last school year. The first being Extracurricular Activities. The 2005-2006 school year had very few. The year(s) prior had parents night out, after school movies, dances, etc...we miss those things. Also, Parent Involvment seems to be down. We have a wonderful PTA, but the school needs the help of every parent in order to be successful. Although all the teachers at Panter are 'top of their game' Mrs. Norman was the best Kindergarten teacher. She and Ms. Ellington gave our children an incredible foundation. Hats off to you Panter-keep up the great work!
