my two children attend judith steele and i cannot be more pleased with this school, both my kids are AB honor roll students and we are having a wonderful expeience at this school. The teachers and staff are wonderful too.
I have 2 daughters that attend Steele, & they love it!!! We get a lot of support from the teachers and they are very willing to help go above & beyond to meet their needs. As a parent, I play my role and get involved and perhaps because of that, the teachers are more willing to assist w our girls'. We love it there...go stallions!!!! They love the craft club and chess club too!!! P.s. I don't think it's asking much to donate some school supplies when needed, it's for our children's future so in retrospect, it's for your own benefit. Teachers spend so much of their own money, why not help where we can, and if not, don't get all defensive. Don't worry, be happy...
Our daughter has been attending Steele for four years and we have had amazing teachers. The principal, while I can appreciate and respect her no-nonsense, old school ways, the newer, "younger" generation feel she's too hard. I can say the kids respect her (which is the way it SHOULD be). There is little parent involvement, and the PTA, while they try to recruit, reminds me more of a high school clique. But, we just help where/when/how we can and volunteer when the teacher asks, providing extras gladly; it s the least we can do (and I don t mind dipping into my kid s college fund to provide a ream of paper, or a box of pencils)
I don't even know where to begin with this school. First off I will say my students with the exception of 1 have wonderful and caring teachers. As far as the principal goes she is a joke. We have attended this school the last 2 years and she is running the school into the ground, she took away everything she possibly could, fall and spring festivals, dances and activities the kids enjoy attending are now removed. Her reasoning is the funding and lack of parent involvement. I know plenty of parents, aunts uncles and grandparents that would love to volunteer their time for their students but HATE working with Mrs. Slack. Im sad to say that my children do not like attending school the only reason they have any drive is from the teachers. We hopefully will not be back next year unless there is a major turn around or Mrs. Slack is removed as principal. Never in my life have I had as many issues as I do with this school sadly disappointed!!!!!
I wish Judi Steele Elementary would update their website. It's extremely limited with new information. I'm a grandparent of a kindergartener and live across the US. I'd like to read more about our little girl's school.
Thank god it is now PTA and not PTLA. There needed to be a change (i.e., president). There were excellent teachers in the past, however, a lot of them had to leave this past year. Very disappointing as I was looking forward to having one of those excellent teachers for my children. Seriously thinking of magnet schools as the best option.
. Parents are outsiders, and their concerns are readily dismissed. I regret that my child goes to this school. I sure wish they'd step into the present, because the habits here are very 1980's. If your child is push button with no issues, they'll do ok. Those needing assistance should go elsewhere.
Steele is a great school for my daughter. She has loved going there for 3 years now and I have had wonderful teachers each year. The activities are well run, but most of all my daughter learned how to read is one of the highest students in her class!
We love this school. Teachers and staff are great. They really pay attention to their students. We got lot of help when we need it. Teachers are not just there for teaching. They also seem to really care for students.
The male primary autism teacher is amazing! He is. an asset to the school. It is a shame he wasn't recoginized for his help during the flood. My child has learned so much since this teacher started. IT'S TOO BAD THE INTERMEDIATE TEACHER HAS NO SKILLS. IWANT MY CHILD TO REMAIN WITH MR.__.
I have been a parent at this school since it opened several years ago. I am so glad there is a PTA, a new principal, and next year the school will be 9 months. I have been discourage with the 4th and 5th grade departmentalization but the new pricnipal will not have it next year, which is good. I think all the 1st grade teachers are excellent The Chess Club is excellent as well as the Science department.
My daughter has gone there for a couple of years and the teachers are great. They actually seem to care about the kids. It is wonderful.
We love this school! The principle and teachers are so caring and involved! It's a tremendous learning atmosphere for my kids and we are thrilled that they were rezoned to this school. Great job everybody!
Unfortunately, all the schools in Nevada have the same sad ways of running a school. Why should i have to dip into my child's college fund just to send him to kindergarten? Why shoul di have to bring in ream copy paper? I should not be paying for office supplies. My husband and I already pay our taxes, why doesn't that cover toilet paper or paper towels for the classrooms? Since when are those not included with a public place? Would you go to a restaurant that told you to bring your own paper towels or silverware? Would you go to a bookstore to be told you have to bring your own paper for them to make you a copy of the book? This is my family's first experience with any of our children going to school. I had questions about how things worked and was totally put down for asking.
I am both a parent and a teacher at this school. I think it is an awesome school. Both of my children have truly grown in this rich and diverse environment. The teachers care about children and it is such a warm environment for everyone. The office staff is top notch and the principal is like a mother to all....the kids and the staff.
We are part of the opening year, and I am happy to report that this school has had very few 'growing pains' and overall, things have gone very very well. Excellent GATE teacher, overall very happy with this school!
