I find the iPad homework to be too laborious and too time consuming, especially in subjects such as math and science. In fact, I strongly disagree with the constant use of a device for learning both inside and outside of the classroom. EES needs to better moderate it's use of the iPad.
Yes, to a degree. The recent increases in student-teacher ratios and decreases in support staff make it difficult for the teachers to inspire all of their students all of the time. There are just too many students for one teacher to be able to take the time to light the motivational fire that encourages students to persist with grit and determination.
Many, many of the teachers and support staff are excellent at this. This is especially evident when visiting the school for lunch or on special days. I cannot vouch for the day to day interactions of the school.
I disagree with the "unhappy parent" that commented about Enochville Elementary School. It's too bad that someone has a "personal agenda" against the staff and administration. This is a terrific school and I am very happy with what is happening as are many other parents, students, and staff. My child has grown tremendously over the past several years and I know that my child gets the care, love, and education that they deserve. The faculty has been hard at work within their classrooms and all around the school creating an environment that is conducive to learning and growing on a daily basis. Money has been spent to install a new track for the students and the playgrounds have all been updated and are in terrific condition. All of the other reviews of this school on this site are positive and indicative of the great things that are happening at Enochville Elementary.
I wish I could say good things about this school but there are so many unsatisfactory things it outways the good by a huge margin. The administration here is probably in place because of some political reason. The assistant principal is a joke you can't take him serious. The playgrounds are run down. The teachers take special exception to the administrators children. If you are in a position like this your child should not be allowed to be in the same school as you. I could say a whole lot more about this place but I would have to write a novel. Unhappy parent.
Enochville is a great school that has awesome teachers with little turnover. The teachers really care about the children. Mrs. Street knows the names of most of the children and is active throughout the school. We love our school and it's support staff!
