SCES is has great teachers and leadership. The PTA is engaged and encourages involvement but doesn't bombard you with requests.
love this school went their and mom works their asoume school!!!! LOVED IT SO SO SOS OS OSO MUCH
We are so excited to be a part of SCES. The teachers are excellent & have extremely challenging programs. I volunteer at the school every chance that I can and have always received a warm & welcoming greeting from office staff. Parents & family members are encouraged to volunteer. I love the Daily 5 curriculum that was started this year. The principal & assistant principal are amazing and show strong leadership. We had to attend another elementary before but am so happy to now be a part of this awesome/amazing school. I am very encouraged to see the way that staff interacts with each other. Again, we are very fortunate to be a part of this wonderful school. I would highly recommend this school.
I agree with the other 2 parents in reference to the EOG test scores. Once my child needed extra help the environment became hostile. The principal and staff are extremely rude and act like know it alls, when they don't know anything about any family at the school. The teachers are inexperienced and forced us to transfer out of the school. The administration loves when families leave the school, because those families won't bring down the test scores. They basically run the families out of the school that need help, so this is how the school scores so high on EOG's. It is awful that a school is ran like this.
My son is in kindergarten at SCES and we love the school! His teacher is AMAZING! She is patient, kind and communicates extremely well with the parents. My son loves everything about the school and is extremely happy there. He has learned an unbelieveable amount in the time he has been there. We look forward to many more years in such an awesome school!
I agree with the parent that stated that this school is focused on only EOG scores. The teachers are not top notch as advertised. The office staff is rude and unkind to students/parents. The principal and administration discourage parental involvement. It was extremely difficult to receive a volunteer schedule after multiple requests. I am disappointed with this school and have started to look for other options.
If you like your child to grow up in a box, than this is your school! The teachers are not well educated on how to deal with children or parents. Most of the teachers we had the past few years were all new to the school. The principal is unwilling to work with parents. If your child has any behavioral or learning disabilities, they make the families miserable, so they switch schools. This school is only based on test scores and extremely unwilling to help children that need any assistance. We always wonder how our child received 3's all year long and the teacher recommended them for retention. This clearly shows the incompetency of the teachers. The administration only cares about test scores and if your child is unable to be successful on the EOG's, they push you out of the school. So that is how this particular school achieves the high test scores. The communication is awful with parents. Good luck to any children at this school that perform outside the box!
Incredible school !!! We've been here and I have never seen a school as good as this and I've been to a lot. Sycamore exceeds my expectations in so many ways !! Amazing staff, safe area, great teachers, great parents!!! Amazing!! We are so thankful and our kid loves it !!!
SCES is a small piece of utopia for both the children who attend and the parents who have children attending this wonderful school. It is fair to say that we have very high expectations for the kind of learning environment that our children are in and SCES has exceeded our expectations on all levels. The teachers are dedicated and committed to challenging all students, the administration is responsive to inquiries, as well as the teachers. And the parents are very involved! We are so fortunate to call SCES our home! Crocks Rock!
My son just finished his final year at his school. He loved to go to school every day. It has been the best environment for him to learn and grow. The principal and vice principal(although leaving) are a great team. The music teacher is awesome as well as the other teachers there. The extra time that the teachers put into this school is great and you can see they really care about the students. The PTA is very active and helps to make Sycamore Creek the great school that it is. Most of the teachers love to have parents help out. We will be sending our youngest to this school when the time comes.
Sycamore Creek Elementary is a great school where the students love going there and teachers are happy too. They have an awesome principal and vice principal. This school welcomes and encourages parent and community involvement. A very large percentage of students have scored at or above grade level on their End of Grade tests. And this school has a character program to reward students for displaying good character.
I can't say enough wonderful things about SCES! The principal and assistant principal are both fantastic, the teachers are dedicated, seem well-supported by the administration and also happy with their work environment (NC ratings of teacher satisfaction support this), and the PTA is very strong. There's a great sense of community and it's a terrific environment for learning.
Great school with teachers that guide their students to excellence! Thank you Sycamore Creek.... OH, I almost forgot - this school is led by a wonderful principal!
To sum up Sycamore Creek in a few words... awesome school, awesome staff, awesome administration!
