Handles bullying effectively: Agree


- a
No direct experience, but I can't believe this wouldn't be the case. My kids have never been bullied nor have ever witnessed anything like bullying. Strong and consistent anti-bullying message.

Supports LD students: Neutral


- a
I can't speak to this directly, though I can't imagine this wouldn't be the case.


Effective school leaders: Strongly agree


- a
Principal Summers is the reigning Wake County Principal of the Year for a reason. She loves each and every one of those kids for who they are. And she inspires her staff to be just like her. She's the best.

Develops character: Strongly agree


- a
The leadership magnet theme infuses The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People into everything done in and out of the classroom. The impact on the children is remarkable. They are happy, get along great and are conscientious about being good students and citizens. Principal Summers developed this program with the Covey Foundation, and it's now being duplicated all over the world. Remarkable to be at the birthplace of this educational movement.

Teacher effectiveness: Strongly agree


- a
Caring, nurturing, and diligent. Every teacher buys into the school's mission and works hard for every child.


Amount of homework: Strongly agree


- a
Children are eased into it. The work is just challenging enough. They are encouraged to "put first things first" and do their homework soon after arriving at home or during after-care - a great lesson in responsibility and how taking care of what must be done is freeing!



- a
Combs inspires children to be responsible, caring and curious about the world. The leadership magnet theme has done wonders for my children. Principal Summers is a dream - she truly cares about every child. There is a positive feeling throughout the school. Teachers and students both work hard but have lots of fun doing it! We truly feel this school is laying the foundation for bright futures.

What a wonderful school! Combs Elementary has been instrumental in my child's success. The respect, kindness, love and leadership that staff and students show one another is remarkable. I only wish I had been so lucky as a child. I know my children will be prepared to go to the next level and continue to succeed in whatever path they choose.



- a
My son has been at Combs since kindergarten. He is now in 5th grade and we have loved every year we have been there. The staff go well above and beyond to help the kids. They love the kids at the school and you will find them telling the children all the time that they "love" them. There needs to be more leadership schools just like Combs! We are sad that this is our last year.
