My kids have not enjoyed going to this school. One was bullied and my other child was made to run laps (without my knowledge for weeks) for talking. This school has long hours and no homework so you never know how the kids are doing, that is until you finally had enough and pull them out and find out they are both working WELL below grade level and Endhaven doesn't really care and keeps passing them because of their age.
Endhaven is an excellent school. The boys love it there and their Teachers. Thank you for your excellent teaching skills and focus on each child that comes into your rooms.
Parents are very engaged in the daily basis at Endhaven. I am glad I decided to live in Endhaven neighborhood to have my children attending Endhaven Elementary.
I just love Endhaven,, the staff and curriculum is great and my daughter is very happy there. Great team and healthy enviroment. We moved from NYC 2 years ago and this is just heaven for us !!!
This school is great academically and when it comes to the interaction of the teachers and staff with the students. My child also had an issue with bullying but the teachers handled everything straight away. My only issue is with the assistant principal and her lack of compassion and overzealous behavior when it comes to handing out punishments without a full investigation of situations. The new principal seems as if he will be hands on and I know that I will have no issues with the assistant principal this year. All in all, except for the assistant principal, the school is fantastic.
great school with great teachers compromise to teach our children's the best of them but they just need more electronics that would help them work better thank you so much for help schools in need of equipment
My daughter's first year in the public school system. She loves it!!! Every one has been so sweet to her from the office staff to all Teachers. She loves feeling comfortable in a new place. Everyone works together. It's a team .
The principal is a highly visible leader, whom I believe has done an excellent job of setting expectations for staff and students. The office staff is friendly and helpful, and the teachers are excellent with the kids. I know this runs contrary to what others have written, but that has been my experience. I am concerned and disappointed to read about the bullying problem another student endured. My son is finishing first grade at Endhaven. For kindergarten, I believe the substantial effort on the part of the teachers was to get unprepared students up to speed while still trying to progress students who began school with the basic skills under their belts. First grade has been a bit more business as usual without much challenge, but I think it s transitional in the right direction. The school has a good character education program and opportunities for supplemental education at home and online. The PTA is active and contributes significantly to the school s success. The facility was built in 2003, is well maintained, clean and conducive to learning. In-school technology is progressing well with a sizable computer lab room and a smart board in almost every classroom.
If you are a caring parent and do not want you children being bullied at school, then this school is not the place to send your children. My child had a very bad experience at this school with being bullied that went on for months. When teachers were informed and knew of the problem, all I ever got told as a parent was "they were working on it". However this is not something that should be worked on for months especially when its physical abuse from another child. It never got resolved and still continued. Eventually it was taken out on my child for speaking up by the teachers. After contacting the principle and never getting a phone call/email/conference and basically being pushed off as a parent, the only solution was to pull my child out of the school and put into a different school. This is not something any child should have to go through, and as a parent if you have to send your child to school you expect that the teachers/ principle will protect them. Not the case at Endhaven Elem.
Parents are welcome for lunch time and volunteering. The office is always open and Ms.Susan is such a great help whenever I have needed help. She is a great listener, takes action and even remember our names. Most office staff members has been very warm and welcoming. The teachers are always smiling and I have never seen anyone mistreat a child. My child loves all the teachers. I just wish the teacher will be more proactive with communication (sometimes feedback takes a few days) , that been said, I have to say she is a great teacher and challenges the kids, my child is doing great. Carpool is well organized; parents are the ones that seem to forget is a school and like to speed a little after the pick up the kids (we never know when a child will get out of nowhere to were the cars are). I cannot say much about the principal, because I have not needed to have any direct interaction, but in the meetings she answers every questions from parents. The school is very clean and neat. The only thing that worries me, is security, but this is a concern that I have with every public school, where they don't have fences or security guards. This is something that CMS should work with.
We recently relocated to Charlotte. The schools teacher are engaged and personable. The staff and principal are not on my favorite list, but is a work in progress, and the school lack of new technology compared from where my kids come from.
I move to Charlotte from another Country and I was very surprised with the Endhaven school, specially coming from a Country where we can't count on the public education system. My son had a hard time on the first 10 days (adapting to the new school/life) but now he loves the school and constantly say that it is the best part of our country change. The teachers are very nice with the kids and the parents. They are always smiling and engaged with the schools activities, I can tell most of them really like to work there. I guess the ladies at the front office could be more helpful and nice. The kids receive attention and I also feel the staff try to teach a lot of values too! The school has a lot of different programs to engage staff, teachers, kids and parents, which I find really great. I think the school is only part of my children education so I really like to be involved, and I feel I am at Endhaven.
My children have attended Endhaven since 2007. Overall the school is professional, welcoming, committed to children and constantly strives to keep children at the center of all it does. The teaching methods reflect what current research says about how children should learn. The staff consists of highly trained teachers and the administrative staff has clear vision and appropriate goals for the future. In addition, the parents are very involved in the academic and social life of the school. Few schools exceed your expectations. This one comes close.
The staff is so rude, with the exception of the principle. The ladies in the office act mean and sirly. Not what I want for my child. The teachers don't seem prepared to handle things within the classroom, or are just not seasoned enough.
Lack of compassion for the children. Staff is there just for a job and not for the children.
This is my daughters second year at Endhaven. I like the way all teachers support all the students, not just their class. I also like that all teachers know who I am- Not my my name but by D's Mom-lol My daughter has learned so much in the past year and this year! A lot more than I did!
We just move to NC from Fl and I love Endhaven Elementary school. The teachers and the principal are very much involve with the kids. This is a very good school I recommended to anyone who is looking for an elementary school in Charlotte,NC.
My 1st grader are not getting any homework, we are not happy about it
This is an excellent school. My son loves it and the staff there is great. My daughter will be starting there this year and Im so glad to have found such a great school for my children to attend.
Excellent school - great staff. A little over crowded with some tailers that should fixed for the '08-'09 year given the off load to Ballantyne Elementary.
