We came from a Hallmark Hall of Fame school in Ohio that was excellent, top to bottom. Furr is just as good, and we have been very happy here for the last 4 years. All (4) of our children have enjoyed it and are thriving there now and at Winkler and Robinson. The AIG program is well run, the Title 1 program is excellent as well, all in all, a GREAT school!
My daughter attended a private school in the area for K-4 and K-5, due to her birthday being in Sept, so she could start ontime. She did okay, but she had to sit at the front of the class with the "troublemakers" because she had a hard time finishing her work due to her ADD, she transferred to Furr this year, and has only had 2 below the line days, both of which were before she got on her current ADD meds. Her teacher is wonderful, she is a lot happier here then she was at the private school.
We have been very impressed with all of the teachers and family involvement in this school. I have two children attending and have been here for the last five years. The experience of the staff and the fresh ideas brought by younger teachers is unsurpassed. We are very excited about another school year at Carl A. Furr!
Before attending Furr, my daughter had poor academic performance and a host of behavior problems. She has been at Furr for 2 years now and has really turned things around. No behavior problems and she has become a B+/A student. I attribute her success at Furr not only to her efforts, but the staff as well. Carl A Furr Elementary is a fantastic school!
Carl A. Furr has been very proactive about meeting the needs of students at every level. My kids have always gotten the instruction they need, whether it is extra help or an extra challenge. Every teacher I have met has been very caring, and the principal is a wonderful leader for teachers, kids and parents.
I think we have the best staff I have ever seen! I have two older children and we have been in several other schools, so I do have something to compare Furr with.
We have the best Administration and teachers anywhere! Each of our staff have their finger on the heartbeat of the school. They know the students and care deeply about each one. The atmosphere throughout the school is one of joy and excitement. The children love to go to learn.
Great administration, teachers and families! Parents are always welcome any time of the day. Great PTO that plans fun activities throughout the year.
phenomenal staff of caring, committed, and supportive people who LOVE what they do, are excellent at it, and bring out the best in our kids
very community and family oriented, Great staff, PTO and teachers that make a difference everyday!
A wonderful administration, caring teachers, dedicated parents and great kids! We have loved our teachers every single year and never had a major problem. Any small problems were dealt with professionally, fairly, and with care. I feel that our school is truly invested in our childrens' future.
Carl A. Furr Elementary School is a terrific school with a fantastic staff that is dedicated to make our children the best they can possibly be.
My wife and I love this neighborhood school. Mr. Liddle is a fine administrator. The staff really care about each and every student. Having 'smart boards' in each classroom is an added benefit.
We love this school. The teachers, staff and administration have been wonderful. We are kept up to date daily on our Kindergartner by her teacher and she is reading! I didn't teach her that, they did! We made a great move to this area
I am very excited to say that this school just opened 2007-2008 and is is amazing. The administration is extremely supportive and on top of things. The teachers are phenominal and very caring about their children in their class. My child is proud to be a falcon!
Great teachers, wonderful staff, excellent learning environment. I can't say enough good things about this school. My son loves and it and my daughter can't wait to attend!
