This is our 1st year at Don Steed, and so far we really like it. I really love that they are able to challenge my above average 3rd grader. The teachers, staff and principal all seem so helpful when needed. I will write another review by the end of the year so I can give more feedback.. :)
Don D Steed is a very nice school, it is a very good learning environment. It has a big library and a lot of books. The principal of the school is friendly and always at the doors smiling and saying hello. It has a beautiful mural on the wall as soon as you walk in. They have a affordable after school care and tutors if your child needs help in class. They also have a mobile lab with laptop computers for the students. What I like about the school is they are always open to volunteers in the classrooms. I think it could improve by having by having after school activities and clubs.
I cannot say enough good things about this school! My child attended private school before coming here, all I can say is that this school is just as good if not better than many private institutions. The teachers are very involved, the principal knows students by name. Also, the parental involvement in this school is amazing.
Awesome school! Your little ones will sure love this school. For those of you who live in Hendrix Farms, this is a great place to buy and rent! The school is brand new and they have the best staff their to work with your children. Excellent teachers, strong leadership, and challenging programs. I LOVE DON STEED and you will too!
If you live in Hoke County, this is the school you want your children to attend! The teachers personalize the information given to the students by paying close attention to what each child excels on or lacks. Then they are grouped during "on your own" time so that the teacher may focus on 2 or 3 at a time for 20 mins or so. I love the time and attention that is paid to all the children. I have visited my daughter's calssroom several times, and have always seen the teachers actively participating instead of sitting at their desk on the computer. Principal knows the children by name, they have a gifted program, and parents are involve more so than others schools in the area.
We LOVE Don Steed! All of the teachers and staff know every child by name it seems which really helps when you have a shy child. We feel welcome from the time we walk up to the greeter at the door from the time we get back into our vehicles. We have always felt very informed about things going on in the school as a whole and in the classroom. Keep up the great work and the Family feel Mrs. Gray and everyone at Don. Steed!!
There is nothing special about this school. The communication between the school and parents do not exist. The principal is not helpful when there is a problem in the classroom.
my son (4) has been receiving speech therapy from this school since it has opened, he is now in the Pre-K program for the second week and already he is counting correctly, the principal is very involved and concerned with the well being of the children, always in the pick up/drop off line to greet parents and students. I would not want my child at any other school than Don Steed
The staff has the most amazing patience with the children.... even the special ones like my daughter. they put thier heart and soul into everything they do....
I have two children that attend this school and I am extremely happy with the time and attention they get from their teachers. The student to teacher ratio is low and the level that all the teachers teach on is high. It is definitely the best elementary school in Hoke County at this time!
