Farrington Grove Elementary School
Teacher effectiveness: Ineffective

I hope this is a fluke but our household is split down the middle with 2 great teachers and 2 so-so teachers. Requested one of my children to be transfered to a different class and no one was willing to hear it. Now they are really struggling and I'm considering withdraw my kids if they do not pass this year because of the school refusing to match kids up with appropriate teachers for children with special needs. There would be no point in having them repeat the grade if they're just going to get stuck with the same teachers again.

The school has made my child want to homeschool. Already tramatized by another school, they just don't seem to have any compassion for what he has been through. Makes me regret moving my children back. Expected so much better from them.

Our children attended this school previously and their IEP records where lost by Cover Bridge when we transfered to another school within the district. We are now having an uphill fight to get the education my children need. My children have also gone from A-B students to barely passing. I would have given the school an A+ rating before but not now.

Our eldest son just started kindergarten at this fine school. The facility is one of the newer schools and is very nice. The teachers and other staff seem very friendly and truly willing to work with parents for the best education for our children. The new principle, Mr. Smith, seems to be very hands-on and is doing a fantastic job. Mrs. Steidel, kindergarten teacher, is absolutely wonderful with the kids and has extra credentials from attending classes to further her skills as a teacher.
