I have not had a good experience at this school as a substitute teacher and I think this is the school where I had a friend who student taught with one of the music teachers. I was told by my friend that other music teachers were very judgmental, critical, and held the opinions that "They were God's gift on earth!" From what I understand, this person requested to transfer to another school because she was badly mistreated by the staff. She never went into teaching again. All it takes is a few people to ruin one's self image and dreams. I will not back down in conveying to the world what I believe about the Lincoln Public Schools District. I guess the squeaky wheel gets the grease.
This is a fantastic school! The teachers and administration work as a team. Your child has the same counselor all three years. My son's counselor truly cares about the children and she knows what's going on with them. Parents have easy access to teachers and administration. If your child needs extra help they get it! The band program is one of the best I've seen. They have won many awards, yet the teachers make the children's extra effort fun. My son is proud to be a member. They also have a variety of extracurricular activities. Something for everyone.
I went to Cavett one of the first years it was open and I loved it. With only one or two exceptions I loved all the teachers and everyone involved. Now as a sixteen year old I can still go back and everyone including administration remembers my name and things about me. I even ran into a former principal who switched schools three years ago and she called me by name and asked about things that I did in elementary school. I think that is awesome
