Both of my Daughters attended Georgetown Elementary. Mrs. Benz listens to parents concerns and runs a great school. I never had a bad encounter at Georgetown Elementary. The Teacher's prepared both Girls for Highland Hills Middle School. One Daughter is in the advance class at HHMS and the other is in the Honors program at HHMS. The strong foundation in learning they received at Georgetown Elemenary has helped them succeed at HHMS!
My son has been going to Georgetown from K-3rd grade. Each of his teachers have been amazing. His homework has been 10-15 minutes each night, plus 20 minutes of reading. My son reads at the at-grade level, but unlike some of the previous reviews, he has never felt like a lower person for it. It's always been "how can we improve." type attitude. Each time I have needed something from the school, its been immediately provided. I am more than thrilled with this school and the faculty there. A++++++++++
This school is a joke.The teachers are only worried about ISTEP scores and heaven forbid your child "only" reads at grade level. Imagine your child crying because they feel stupid because the teacher said they are "only" at grade level.We are on the waiting list for another school and we will be out of Georgetown as soon as possible.
My daughter attended kindergarten here and it went great. Then first grade came. My daughter went from a little girl who loved to learn new words to a little girl that would cry when she had to read her books every night (Just waaaay too much homework). I feel that she has stagnated and that her desire to learn has been crushed. I'm looking for an alternative for the next year even if it means home schooling.
Both of my children attended Georgetown last year. We were crushed when we had to move out of state and leave Georgetown Elem. behind! This school is WONDERFUL! All the teachers are excellent but Mrs. Taylor (2nd grade) is above and beyond fabulous! Everything about this school is great. Your kids will love it and so will you!
