There are some teachers that attempt to do something to help the youth, but students are often forgotten by other teachers and not valued. There is little to know diversity that is appreciated, and students as well as teachers only look out for themselves. I have heard of horrible behavior issues that are never addressed appropriately, and apparently it is ok to condone cursing and immoral talk. Terrible place to send your kids!
I had two children graduate from Comstock. Both went to college after and are very successful, in part from the great experience we had in this school system. My oldest has moved back into the community and her oldest is now enrolled in Comstock, hoping to continue a great tradition.
Comstock Schools is a great district. Small enough that you can get to know the teachers and administrators on a first name basis, but large enought to offer kids a wide variety of AP courses and electives. Older well built school buildings that are in the process of being updated. Property taxes are the lowest in the county.
These schools provide an excellent learning environment for my children. The sports and band programs are tops. New science labs and the past two bonds have helped greatly. Diversity here better prepares my kids than it would at a school like Gull Lake or Galesburg. Go Colts, we love these schools!
This is a horrible school. Teachers don't have enough supplies or get paid enough to care about anyone's education. The absence policy is ridiculous, saying if you have 12 absences in one trimester you fail. The school is overcrowded and people get in trouble for small things like hats when serious problems disrupting others' education occurs. The principal only cares about the athletes.
They have the greatest teachers in the region and the school is great. Lots of school spirit! All activities are available. Although much of the community is elderly, so our school receives no support.
We could't ask for a better education for our children. Teachers know their students well and focus on the individual needs of students at all levels of ability. Dr. Standish, our assistant superintendent is outstanding! She really cares about the well-being of Comstock students as does Mr. Eastman, our high school principal. We have always had teachers who have been able to key in on the strengths and weaknesses of our children and use that knowledge gained to bring about success. These teachers are truly amazing. We are in awe at their ability to work with such a diverse population. That alone has been an education for our children. The economy has not helped with the advancement of our schools, but there is something about the teachers, staff, and administration of Comstock Public Schools that has lead us to believe they will make a difference no matter what hits them.
