There are insecure teachers in this school who are very unfair to young kids. They grade them on materials and activities that haven't been taught or demonstrated. They give them zeroes if they forget to put their names on their papers rather than encourage and (teach) them. I hope that the administration will closely monitor teachers. Train them to be positive, effective and fair. As a last resort, encourage them to go elsewhere if they can't work effectively in this school. The best interest of the child must come first. A child's mind is a terrible thing to waste. There appears to be a disconnect between some of the teachers, students and parents. If certain teachers can't function in this school they should seek employment elsewhere. A child's mind is a terrible thing to waste. As a taxpayer, I am very disappointed with the classroom performance of certain teachers. There are many good teachers, however, sometimes the bad ones overshadow the good ones. Hope I don't have to name them! The students must be the winners in this school. On the bright side the principal appears to be off to a good start.
I apologize because I intended to give partee's school and staff 5 stars and accidentally gave them only one. Again, If your children a fortunate enough to attend Partee, Mr. Graham, Mrs. Kay and Mrs. Barber are wonderful teachers!
Overall, the school is good. The principal is attentive to listening to parents. Teachers work hard at this school. Some of the classes seem overloaded with challenging . The school went through a lot of changes because I see a lot of new people this year. Support teachers are back in the classroom or left the school. Veteran teachers left . I question teacher morale, for this reason teacher quality is rated 3. If teachers are unhappy, instruction may be taking a dip unless micromanaged.
I would like to thank Partee elementary the principal, the teachers, the cafeteria staff, the environmental staff, The PTA and anyone else that I may have left out I would also like to thank you I have a first grader who started in kindergarten I have a middle school student that they prepared well and may I add that she's doing very well Dr Lynch will go above and beyond to help a parent thank you Partee for being my extended family
My child just started Kindergarten. I was somewhat concerned about this whole idea of starting school. However, the school environment, the teachers and Dr. Lynch the principal who is always available and present made me feel very comfortable. I am very happy with my child's teacher, she is very involved and caring of each individual child. My child is also already involved in extra curricular activities. It feels like the school has always something nice planned for the students to make learning fun and to keep them in school.
this school and staff have really improved, and we LOVE it.....kids are excited about going to school, can you believe it!.....this school is really under rated...but most reviews were from a long time ago......
