Terrible Kindergartner Teachers Especially Meredith Ross, Also the principal does not even address issues properly. I am currently dealing with the person above the principal with an issue I am having with the teachers and the principal. If you want the best learning environment for your child I would NOT pick here. My child said that he is enjoying kindergarten but the teachers that I telling him what he can and cannot eat out of his lunchbox that I packed for him are ruining it for him. My child would have been at Crown Point Elementary which is right down the street from our home if it wasn't for the way the districts are set up.
Our experience with this school was good if the teacher was good and very bad if the teacher was not good. There are some outstanding teachers at this school and some teachers who shouldn't be there. Leadership and communication from the principal were nonexistent. She has recently been replaced so things may improve in these regards. We believe the multi-cultural, multi-racial community of students at this school is wonderful for our children. to be part of. However, academic standards are not sufficiently high for what we judge to be the abilities of the students attending.
Piney Grove is a great school. When you first see it, you think "oh no". I've always been on the Honor Roll. And if you want to enroll your child at Piney Grove, I recommend, Mrs. Hurt, Mrs. Dukes, or Ms. Terry. The best teachers!!! I miss this school! I graduated in 2011. My favorite memories are at that school.
My son is going to kindergarden this year at Piney Grove and he and I love it. They are very caring and he has already learned so much from his teacher Ms. Selvek. If your looking for a great school for your child look no further this is it!
This school is absolutely GREAT!! My son is attending school for the first time, he's at Piney Grove for pre-K, and his teacher Ms. Fannell has been wonderful! I have felt like she really takes the time to work with each child and see how they are progressing individually and works on their specific needs until they've learned it. The school principal is also wonderful, she attends all school events and makes it a point to approach each parent. We are happy and greatful our son attended this wonderful school!!
If you just look at the achievement numbers in the charlotte observer you would get the wrong impression of piney grove elementary. This school had academic growth numbers off the chart 2004/2005 that wasn't published in the charlotte observer. If your child is fortunate enough to attend piney grove elementary school, he/she will receive a fabulous education, but equally important he/she will be attending a school were safety is paramount, parent-involvement is 100% encouraged and where the entire staff is dedicated to promote the academic success of your child! i have a second grader in piney grove. I am involved in the pta and student leadership committee so i see what goes on in-front and behind the scenes. Piney grove elementary has a plan of attack to not only attain, but surpass all of its #'s in 2005/2006!
