It's an absolute shame how horribly bad an elementary school can get to be within this county. It just sickens me every time I think about. My son has been in 3 public schools this being the 3rd since kindergarten and not one has sown worthy of a 5 star rating. But speaking on Arrowhead. Overcrowded classrooms, Horrible classroom management, Horrendous administrators, staff, and assistants. No one cares least of the parents who send their little demons to school everyday to terrorize those kids who are just trying to get an education and come home in peace. My son has been subjected to hearing so many disgusting, vile, and evil things that he had never in his 8 years of living been subjected to hearing. Now I'm left with the burden of explaining why someone who say something so crazy. The kids their force your child to grow up to fast because they are super exposed to all sorts of adult content at home and they have no filter at that age. The teachers do nothing but change the color of the behavior chart as if that is really going to do something. I'm so tired of this county's schools and wished to GOD I never invested in a home here. Luckily that is something I can correct.

This school is definitely not what it use to be. I have three kids that are attending ranging from K-3. The classrooms are overcrowded and the students are not getting the attention that is needed. The 3rd grade teachers are extremely young with an "out dont care" attitude.

My children attend Arrowhead for the first time during the 08-09 school year. Both of their teachers were excellent. My children were exposed to so many new and wonderful ideas that it was immediately reflected in their behavior and abilities at home. My son was in kindergarten discussing interjections! Also the Admin staff is wonderful. The principal is an excellent resource and I don't know how we would have survived with out the parent teacher liason.

I was very pleased with the instuction that my daughter had in pre-k. The teachers were wonderful, and my daughter was excited to get to school everyday. However we were not that lucky in 1st grade. I spent many days in the classroom, and I realized that the children in one particular 1st grade class were being rushed with work. Concepts were not being mastered, tasks unfinished. I stopped helping inn the classroom out of frustration, and only paticipated in field trips. At the end of 1st grade, my child did not learn anything new than what she had from pre-k.

I was very happy with this school. My daughter only attended in Kindergarten and 1st grade. In those 2 short years, I have attended many field trips and spent numerous hours in the classroom. She has now been accepted into the Talented and Gifted program at another school, but I would surely like to thank her teachers for constantly keeping her focused and letting me know when she wasn't. I would also like to personally thank Mrs. Sherlock for being one of the best teachers there for many years.

I am very pleased with the Be Positive, Be Peaceful,Be Productive motto that Arrow Head has took on. The 2006 school year has outstanding teachers and overall faculty. The teachers are going above and beyond to help my two daughters become more academically challenged as well as disciplined.

All of my children has attended arrowhead at some time, I still have one child there and she has made great progress since being at arrowhead. I've had teachers from K-6th grade in arrowhead. The parent has to get involved with your child teacher to know what your child is doing and where your child is academic. The teachers can not teach a disruptive class. I am very happy with the staff and the teachers at arrowhead, and am also proud of their education accomplishments.

I am pleased with Arrowhead. My son is in the Third Grade and he continues to bring home all A's. I believe whenever you have any school age child in the home it is the parent's job as well to take time to sit down with our children and reinforce what is being taught. This helps us understand exactly how our children are comprehending what is being theirs daily lessons. It also helps us as parents to address more specific concerns.
