Teacher effectiveness: Somewhat effective

I believe Grenada to have some excellent teachers, but not sure I would say they have the freedom to teach. I heard a lot of complaining about common core and poor reading programs. From my own personal experience, my son had good teachers but they didn't have much of a personal relationship with him. I got the feeling he was just another kid. This made it difficult to discuss his goals and performance. Again, I think each class is way too big and the teachers are swamped.

I believe they attempt to teach respect for the teachers and the establishment, but not for their peers, nor do they foster self control.

I would say there is a structure there to teach these things with daily "Charger Values" they learn. But again, not sure the teachers can handle enforcing these traits, which at this young age...they need constant reinforcement.

This is actually a very good school with really great teachers and a good administration. My only complaint is that the classes are quite large, and those that struggle can fall behind easily. I was particularly impressed with the moral standards. They even start each day with announcements that include a Bible verse. The Kidzeum is a valuable learning tool that the children really enjoy. I've been pleased overall.

Grenada Elementary School was rated the #1 rural elementary school in the country by a nationally known magazine. The teachers are hands on, and keep the parents completely informed. The children love the teachers. What small problems I personally have had, have been addressed immediately!

I agree with the previous post about the private school situation--if you don't live in a certain area or are not a member of a 'prominent' (i.e., 'rich') family you won't go far as far as acceptance from students and teachers are concerned. I also think that the lack of interaction with other races and cultures is a disappointment with the private school. That's why I love Grenada Elementary so much. The teachers don't care who you are or where you come from; they are ready and willing to give ALL of their students an equal opportunity to learn.

My son attended this school during k5 and we were not disappointed. The level of activities is amazing but overall I was impressed with the measures they have for displine. They have a Red (for bad) Yellow (for warning) and Green (for Good) and the kids really strive to get these good colors. Overall I've been very impressed with this school.

My child attended Grenada Elementary in Kindergarten and First Grade. Her teachers were Mrs. Patricia Hood and Mrs. Cox respecitively. Our entire experience with the school was wonderful. Her teachers were always concerned and held partent teacher meetings that were very informative. My daughter loved to go to school each and every day. I know for a fact that it is because of teacher's like this. I received detailed progress reports from them. And knew which areas I needed to focus on. I sat in on a couple of my daughter's classes. I was really impressed with the way the teaching was handled and the way the students responded. Mr. Pender and now Mr. Poss are both great Principals. We recently moved to another area. And having a top notch school was a very important factor in deciding upon the area. We defintely used Grenada Elementary as a grading scale.

My older children attended private schools in Grenada. I was very unhappy with the attitude of that school. More importants was put into who the child was and where they lived than concern for the children. From the very first Grenada elementry was great. More attention was put in to how the child acted and different way to teach. My child was placed in multi-age. This gave him the incouragement of teachers and by his 'older'- the child in the grade above him. The olny area that I was not quite happy with was the way of grading.
