Detroit Community Schools-Elementary 5

My names is James Coakley, Detroit Community in my eyes is more than just a school it's a family. Im very thankful for all the things the staff does for not just the students but the parents also. Detroit Community goes above and beyond the call of duty when it comes to the students. Coats are given to students in the winter at no charge, backpacks and all school supplies are given to the students free of charge which is a big help to us as parents. Detroit Community School academic curriculum goes above state standards which prepares the students for the next grade level and beyond. The staff is always available to talk and meet at all times with parents and students. Detroit Community School also provides free tutoring as well as latch key and aftercare for students that assist parents with later work schedules. Detroit Community School is A true blessing for me as a parent. I highly suggest parents look into enrolling their children in Detroit Community School K-12.

Do not send your child to this school! This district has an extremely high turn over rate. From 2008-2011the elementary school had FOUR different principals, 2 of whom had no degree/background in education. The teachers are good for the most part, but they don't last longer than 3-4 years because of the high administrative turn over. Students and teachers are at the bottom of the priority list, personal and monetary gain are at the top. This school needs to close and the quality teachers need to find an employer who is worthy of their hire.

I think Detroit Community Elementary School has made great strides for the 2008-2009 school year. I think the teachers, administration, and support staff have grown over the past year. The school really makes student learning a #1 priority.

This school is a good school the only flaw that I can complain about is not enough extra curricular activities for the children. Me personal I believe that the principal change was a great choice. The school has more discipline instead of the student bullying other students.
