My daughter was very educated when attending this school. She had an awesome kindergarten teacher. I had some difficulities with some of the staff and pricinpal in the way they run the school, but overall Idlewood Elementary was a great school being intermix.

My son has attended Idlewoods self-contained Special Education program for four years now (since turning 3). They may not have the resources of the private schools, but they truly care about my son and his progress! He has flourished as a result of their investment! Parent/teacher communucation has been great, & they encourage me to drop by to look in on them! I can't speak to the teaching ability of the rest of the staff, but I can say that they've always been welcoming--& I've never seen anything but positive interactions b/w them & students. As for parent involvement, the fact that a majority of the students seem to be immigrants is probably the issue. But they are a greatly diverse group of kids, representing countless ethnicities & cultural backgrounds, & that can also be a good thing!

I have lived in the Idlewood school district for 7 years now and have seen a great improvement in the school. My daughter is now a 1st grader at Idlewood and we could not be happier with the teacher, the principal, and the school. The staff is dedicated and driven, and they express a high level of interest in seeing my daughter succeed. Parent involvement in the school could be better. What makes a huge difference in a child's educational success is how much time and direction they are offered at home in regards to studying spelling words, problem solving, and completing long-term projects. Believe me, the teachers and staff are doing their jobs!

This is a Title 1 Distinguished school of ten yrs and met AYP for 8 in a row...we have a new principal that is amazing and we have the best teachers with high level training and education. We are a transient school for new citizens and visiting immigrants so we cater to all. With the 87% transient population in & out we still test well and are equal to the nation's levels.

Idleood is a great school, and its filled with wonderful teachers. My child is in Mrs. Cuningham's class and I think so far she is a great teacher.

Idlewood has been a wonderful school and my child loves her teachers. Thanks to all the teachers and staff at Idlewood for working so hard. We could use more involvement from the parents.

This is the worst school my son has been to. I would not recommend anyone sending their child to this school. This has been the worst experience my child has ever had. The teachers need to go back to college and learn some patience!

I think this school is a wonderful place for my child. I do think that more parents should get involved and do more to help make this great. It is a shame that the people who complain are the ones who do nothing to be involved. I have had a very positive experience in part because I know that I have to do my part as a parent. The school nor the teachers can do it all. And I do my part.

The school has a new Principal and she does not communicate with the parents and was last years assistant principal. When there is a problem the principal does not help you to solve it, she should not be in that position she should leave it to someone who really cares for the children. I am VERY dissapointed with the school and do not recomend it.

My daughters first year in kindergarten and she did not like it at all. I did not like the way the principal or second teacher handled my child. The principal was not concerned. I would not let her attend for 2004/2005 school year. I am a concerned parent i do not see any growth potential at the school for majority children. It is a non approaching administartion at the school.

This is a very violent school. The Principals don't seem to care about the children's safety, especially the girls'. Do NOT send your child to this school!

2003-2004 was my child's first year at Idlewood. I would not recommend this school to any parent. No afterschool program, no enrichment activities, a diversified student body that is not celebrated, major discipline problems,and my child learned hardly any science or social studies lessons! Worst of all, there are many teachers who do not care about their students achievement. It is very sad.
