The staff is kind of cold faced. Seems too busy to look up from their desk to give you a smile when you walk into the front desk. In my old school, my son used to talk about his humorous art teacher, and warm para-educator who was always curious about what is in his lunch box, silly jokes teacher makes to make the students laugh. But I do not think any of these belongs to Clarksville. Like the other post said, it seems to be more straight-face environment. But we did love the young teachers in second grade last year, who was strict but still very nice. And the PE teacher organizes great activities like field day & turkey trot.

I get the feeling this school is run like a military camp. There are rules, rules, rules everywhere for eg. prohibition against talking to children at lunch, etc. Short daily recess which limits the physical activities - this is not how young boys are wired. I'm all for strong discipline, but these are young children, not drones. A couple of my son's friends are showing class clown tendencies, talk too much. Now I know where it is coming from. Inside the classroom too there are specific rules for trivial matters eg. putting the HW sheet in your backpack. Parents who are just visiting for lunch but not volunteering will find unwelcoming staff faces. One experiences complete regimentation from the moment one gets there. It was kind of hilarious and sad at the same time to notice that during one of the parents nights, teachers were getting ready for the presentation and were positively relaxed and moment the principal walked in, they all stood up and were literally in attention position. BTW, parental involvement is great but to the extent of too many activities by the OVERACTIVE PTA.

Active parents, good teachers, and a well run school. Principal seems good and engaging. My child just completed kindergarten and will return for 1st grade. So far, we have been pleased. We do question a little bit the pacing of the academic program (I think they could be doing more) but our child seems to be progressing at a good pace (as far as we are told). We are watching it.

CES is a very good school academically, and many of its teachers and staff members perform their jobs exceptionally well. I give much applause to the parent volunteers and PTA. However, I would like to see CES administrators not just pay lip service on their zero tolerance on the issue of bullying.

Difficulties with service and accomodations occur in all schools, and I am sure most teachers, administrators, and parents strive to meet all mandates, requirements, and accomodations for all students as best as possible.

I am not a parent, but a student at Clarksville, and I feel this school offers a tremendous education and has excellent teachers. The coment posted earlier about Clarksville not catering to disabled children is false. In fact we are having a disability awareness day next week.

Not all parents feel that CES has provided a good education for their child. CES needs to address concerns and issues for children with disabilities, especially those with learning disabilities. Often it is not mentioned that many children with disabilities may be excluded from testing data due to accommodations needed to take the tests. Blue Ribbon schools, like CES should include all children.
