Conley Elementary School1

As a parent of a Special Ed student, I found them not compliant with the needs of my child. The regular classroom teacher blamed the special ed teacher for not teaching my child and the special ed teacher blamed the regular teacher. In the mean time, my child has suffered from their ignorance! They do not listen to parenst on what works best for our CHILDREN!
Lots of district induced learning disabilities here. They use a one-size-fits-all curriculum and follow server discrepancy model so a child has to be two grade levels behind before they are willing to address the issue. Superintendent main concern is budget and clearly not education. If you have a special needs child stay far away from this school. All students pay the price for their ignorance.
I enrolled my third grader into the gifted program at Conley after he spent 3 years at a Montessori school. We found that his homework consisted of what he had already learned in first grade, and he would come home crying after spending the day at school. After 4 weeks we sent him back to Montessori school. I cannot recommend Conley except for parents that are happy with typical substandard public school education.
