Edmund G Ross Elementary lacks leadership from the top with Amanda Stavig. The school is failing miserably due to lack of leadership, refusal to help children with their disabilities appropriately, and the principal trying to cover up all the problems with a fake smile and saying everything is fine. The school also lacks appropriate parents leadership in that the PFC is lazy and can do so much more in more creative ways. The school counselor is irresponsible and does not do what is best by children with disabilities. If you ask these people for help, they make you out to be the problem. If you dare go against them, they (Amanda Stavig and Kendra Moulton) will retaliate against you and use multiple forms of intimidation to shut you up. If you have a problem at this school, go straight to the New Mexico State Department of Education. This school will not turn around until appropriate educators and counselors are in place. It is poorly managed and is failing for many reasons. Do not send your children to this lousy excuse for a school.
I was wary about putting my child at EG Ross because of the low GreatSchools Rating and general hear-say from other people. However we gave it a shot, and I've been very impressed by the principal, teachers, and staff. They are all dedicated caring professionals who worked hard at what they do. My child is happy and challenged, and I can not be more satisfied with this school. I do think there needs to be more parents participation, but that's hardly anything we can fault the school with. Most of the parents have full time jobs they can't take time off from.
the new counselor at the school is excellent. She repsponds to parent concerns quickly. She has taught the kids how to handle bullying. She is a great addition!
My twin boys have been at EG Ross from K-3rd (currently). I feel they have had great teachers and they have been treated as individuals and have learned a lot from each teacher. The atmosphere is great & the boys have loved going to school each year. Each teacher has prepared them for the following year. The principal is very attentive to all the kids. I was very involved at the school the first 3 years but my job does not let me be at this time. My husband & I have been really satisfied with the school up to this point.
EG Ross is a wonderful school. My son was in Kindergarten last year, and he has learned not only the basic skills, but tons more. The teachers and other staff members are a joy to know. I am so happy that he is going there... I wouldn't trade them for any other school!!!!
Both of my sons attended E. G. Ross from K to 5. Their education was extraordinary. I honestly feel that they were prepared for high school from elementary.
