I was initially concerned about my child attending this school after our amazing time at Hubbard but after three years I've noticed nothing but good things. My daughter loves school. She has loved her teachers and they have challenged her every step of the way. This year there are many new teachers but I've been impressed that even with one principal covering both schools that the high expectations are still evident. Teachers seem much happier this year and more collaborative too. I get weekly emails from my child's teacher and she always responds quickly when I have questions. I am so happy my daughter loves school and has been able to be involved in extra activities like a new mentoring program and band. Teed has come a long way over the last few years. I'm excited to see the continued progress with the enthusiasm of the new teachers school wide.
The school is horrible. Most of my child's teachers could careless about the students and the principal was horrible. A few of the teachers literally acted like it was a jail sentence to show up everyday and have to "deal" with these kids. There were a few teachers who really seemed to care about the education but most of them transferred to the new elementary school. There was a lot of bullying that did not get dealt with and most of the kids that were bullied where put to the side and the principal seemed to cater to the bullies. One teacher my child had was so bad and proved he didn't care about the students, he would intentionally sit the bullies with the kids they were bullying in the back of the class room for them to work it out on their own so he wouldn't have to deal with it. My child would come home with complaints about the way teachers treated certain students in the class. My child wasn't one that was bullied but on several occasions of volunteering in the class, I witnessed it 1st hand and that these teachers did nothing about it. Parent volunteers were hard to come by as well. It was not a comfortable school to walk into as a parent or a child in my opinion.
I think that Teed is a speacial place that treats everyone with respect. The Fith grade classes are excellent. Mrs. Boggetti is my childs favorite teacher. The principal is only mean when he has to. And Parents are involed (at least in fith the other grades...I Don't Know)
Teed has a wondeful, welcoming atmosphere. Parents are encouraged to be involved in classroom activities as well as variety of school wide activities like 'Pioneer days'. The music program is phenomenal and the PE program is awesome. The principal has an upbeat attitude and is on a first name basis with all of his students. The teachers are great too!
