The teachers are awesome at this school. They work very hard. My child was enrolled there for four years but it is time for a change. The students there are very lazy and my daughter has picked up the bad habits. The school really needs to get rid of the principal and her side kick AP which is her best friend. I don't even know how that is possible. If they got rid of the Admin except two and get a good leader in that school. It could be awesome.

This has to be one of the worst schools I have ever been involved in. My child has been attending since 3rd grad and is now in 5th. The teachers are more concerned in being catty and playing favorites than teaching. The communiction is way off. I have been forced to resort to my own measures to ensure I know exactly what is going on with my child. I am so thankful that I donot have to put up with them another year. I would move out of the area if I did. 3rd grade was fine. I had to have my child's class switched in the 4th grade because the teacher decided that she did not like my child and made the environment hostile. 5th grade started off ok but has taken a turn, not for the better. There are a few teachers there who are quality, but from my experience, it's not the majority. If you have another option, please go with it. This school is a perfect example of "you get what you pay for".

I always loved the teachers in Corley Elementary School. My son Is now attending Berkmar Middle and misses his elementary life. My son attended a program called ADVANCED CONTENT and he loved it. Thank you teachers and staff of Corley Elementary for making my son have the best school experience at your school. :)

Corley Elementary school has a passive stance on Bullying. An above average school, in my opinion would be agressive on this point. There should be a no tolerance policy and disciplinary action taken. It doesn't happen here!

The open area around the trailers is a very big safty issue for me. My daughter is a second grader and walked from the trailer into the school alone on many occassions. I had her moved into the building

I have thoroughly enjoyed the Corley experience. There is a diverse population, which teaches the children a lot about the world. The programs were enriching, the facility is beautiful and I'm excited to send my youngest son back for another year.

I loved Corley. The teachers were always there, bending over backwards to help my child in the way that was best for him. I miss it, and wished we could move back into the school district. I don't have a single complaint.
