Cataract Elementary School 2

No recess. No playground. (It was formerly a middle school- shouldn't adding a play area have been one of the first things done when deciding to convert it into an elementary school?) Awful school counselor (very brash and not kind to the children). We wish that we had been more careful when choosing a home in this district. There are however, some very lovely teachers and staff members.

Very disappointed in the way this school is ran. My son was enrolled for 2 months before I pulled him out. He has special needs and this school does very little to meet them. No structure, or organization. The teachers are overwhelmed with common core curriculum that they don't pay attention to the students' needs. Hopefully you never have trouble with a bully because the school does nothing about that either. The principal says he will "take care of" the situation but does absolutely nothing and continues to allow students to be bullied, while he looks the other way. My son was in 3 different physical altercations and nothing was done. No discipline for the bully besides a write up. One oven threatened to kill him, and still, nothing was done. If you value your child's safety and education, don't send them to Cataract Elementary School.

Cataract Elementary is family and friends. The staff is very helpful and understanding. The parking for some parents who drive their children is limited.
