PROS: Education is good, Teachers are good. Some staff better than others. Parent involvement is good. Demographics are acceptable. CONS: Very clicky community. Some parents and children need lessons on good parenting and accepting values. In general the school is great, but the student body comes from very clicky home environments which reflects on the school and is obvious among most of it's student body.

I love Raymond Elementary....I began having an uneasy feeling last year as that was his first year. but after this school year has began I have quickly changed my mind. The teachers are wonderful and are very informative. His teachers make me feel like they ACTUALLY care, which is very hard to find. The office staff is friendly and the nice lady in the office always recognizes my voice over the phone, which is very impressive...or it may just mean I call too much :)!

The principal doesn't care about the students nor does she care about there education all she cares about are her numbers of ratting! She doesn't care about the special needs at all. If they learn anything or not and when she is presented with a problem. She also will not provide extra help for the students that need it even at the parents request;even should the parent offer to do it at home if they would help provide the info.

My daughter is in K-5 at Raymond Elementary School and I am so pleased with the education she is receiving. She is going to be so prepared for 1st grade next year. She is already reading words and starting on adding and subtracting. The education and academic curriculum this school has set for these students is wonderful. I am so please to have my child a part of such a fine 5 star school. Keep up the great job Ms. Gipson and teachers!
