My daughter attended Caroline Sibley from Kindergarten to 6th grade and was either Honor Roll or Super Honor roll the whole time. The staff is super attentive and work well with the students although Parents you still have to do your part. I believe they do need more activities for the students now to compete with other schools. My daughter now goes to Marist High School and her transition to private school has been relatively easy thanks to what she's learned in district 149.

A school with excellent & caring teachers & Administrative staff. Kids are supervised well & the academic program is great. These teachers & Administrative staff are outside rain or shine making sure the kids get into the school safely & depart safely. Thet walk children up to their parents cars, escort them to buses & even direct traffic at cross walks. To me that is really caring.

I am proud to be a teacher at Caroline Sibley school. We have great students and an excellent staff, not to mention a fabulous administrative team. I put in many hours and spend a lot of my own money to make sure that every child in my classroom succeeds to the best of their ability. I am offended by many of the comments parents have made. How discouraging for us to read!!! It's easy to judge from the outside, but as an insider we are doing great things!!! We could use more parent involvement and support from the home. I am sorry, but we can't do it all! It does start in the home! I know that we have areas that need improvement; who doesn't?? Know that if your child is attending our school, the staff does care and takes very good care of your baby!

I am proud to be a part of the Caroline Sibley family. I am proud to say we have an outstanding administration and a superhero for a principal. We have made AYP for three consecutive years which reflects how much we take pride in education and our students. When you are being critical, and on the OUTSIDE looking in, you must ask yourself; What have I done to help? When you are on the inside doing all you can to make sure our babies get what they need, and succeeding, now that is PRICELESS!

As a teacher of this school, I am upset at the fact that some parents can say that the teachers don't care about the kids. Teaching requires kids all day, and if we didn't care, we wouldn't report to school daily. Teaching is our passion and we carry it out proudly at Caroline Sibley School.

My daughter is in the 1st grade, and she does well, I think Parents need to get more involved with their childs future and stop depending on the Teacher to do all the work. So what it's their job, it's your job as well! The school, needs lot of work, starting with it's students. It's a shame the kids who want to learn have to go to school with kids who wants to curse, and fight, I'm talking about 1st, 2nd and 3rd graders! I wonder where that get it from! It starts at home, kids see and hear everything! Teachers, well I'm not sure about the other teachers but my daughter's teacher loves to teach and it shows! Now I dont plan on her going back to this school due to it environment, which is another thing that needs to be worked on.

The school is improving year by year which is great but one thing they should work on is the conduct at the lunch periods for the grades 5 and 6 . Also, they need better food because my child has reported that some of the food is not thourghly cooked .Last but not least the school needs alot of improvement in the way it looks, for example they need a seprate gymnassium and not the gym mixed with auditorium .Another thing is that the floors are hideous and they could use alot of work im just going to make a sugesstion of wooden floors these are some things the school needs to work on.

MY child was a straight A student coming to this school. When he transferred, he was still getting straight A's but was having problems with behavior. I learned later that is was because he was bored with the work that was being given. I transferred my son and he is being challenged now and has less behavioral problems. My son will not go back to that school.

I think the teachers at this school do not take time to help the students who are in need. This school will have better academics, if there were better teachers. The teachers are lazy.

This school is horable! This school should be shut down and burned, i can't believe some one would actually leave their children with these people. Teachers don't care about the students. by the time they get to real schools there acedemic skills are terrible.

My son has attended this school for 6 years on and off and never flourished as a student. I would not recommend this school for the academics; it seems all the decent teachers went elsewhere. Thank you

The Principal and School District 149 should do a better job of greeting parents, and securing the school grounds.
