Plumbrook Elementary School 2

My child went here as school of choice for 2 years because I thought it would be a better choice than my home district -- I was wrong. The staff is very cold, they did not provide the accommodations that my child needed, did not give me all of the information about choices for my child (which I did not find out until long after we were gone from the school. And I only found out from another school district) one of my son's teachers was VERY mean, and the whole time I felt like we were being pushed out. He could have stayed another year but it was "strongly suggested" that he transfer to another school, and I completely agree. My child is very well-behaved and never gets in trouble, so that wasn't the issue. I felt like we weren't given the consideration other parents were because we are from a "poorer" district (to be fair it may have been something else, but I see no difference other than this). So this school is probably a good one as long as you live in the district, if you're school of choice then go somewhere else.

The mean 4th grade teacher who dresses like she's going to the club was pretty ineffective. To be fair the other teacher was good.

My child gets less homework in middle school than was given here. A lot of homework probably 4 nights a week, at least.

Some teachers not fair with students, not all treated equally. this problem not solved at all in this school, the same reason we had last year and now, that teachers take care only a few students because she knows their parents.

Plumbrook is awesome - I have 4 kids - 2 of which are at Plumbrook and have academic and social issues. Although at times it can be trying I can not be thankful for all the love and support that everyone from the top to the bottom have for my kids. This school is awesome, awesome, awesome and thankful for it being our school!

Plumbrook Elementary has been a wonderful school for our son! He loves school and looks forward to going every day. The teachers are amazing, so kind and friendly, and go out of their way to help their students' achieve. I'm sorry a few have had a bad experience but I don't see it and I am there often! I am school of choice so we picked Plumbrook out of many school tours, don't let a few negative people dissuade you from a wonderful school!
