This is my child's second year attending Selma Elementary school and we could not be more pleased with them! Her first grade teacher Mrs. Blakely is an exceptional teacher who goes above and beyond her curriculum to ensure that each child is able to grasp what is learned and strive to push themselves further. I give this school a 5 start based off of the 2 years we have been here. It is clean, safe and friendly environment and we have no complaints what so ever about this facility!
My family moved to NC from NJ and Selma Elementary School was nothing but detrimental for my children. I have a 5 year old handicapped daughter that there are NO resources for. Her teacher would have to change her diapers and deal with her needs. There are no aides or special needs classes in this school. Unheard of. And I have a 7 & 9 year old who were bullied mercilessly.We know two children who have also been bullied. And the pathetic teachers refused deal with the parents! Also they were not willing to see what gaps existed in their schooling since we'd moved from another state.We have 3 out of state neighbors who had the same problem. These children now go to Princeton Elementary School and their parents couldn't be happier. Exhausting, frustrating, and sub par are the best words I can politely use to describe my experience with this school. I ended up homeschooling them and they've done better than the school ever could have. Please do not subject your children to this sad excuse for a school. Consider Princeton (15 minutes away) if you're able to drive your children to their school. We expected a "normal" school year, but what we got was much worse- a nightmare.
I am tutor at Selma Elementary. I find the day staff to be kind and helpfull. The students are the best! They work hard and showing a great depth of caring about everything
I have had my ups and downs with this school; however, It was due to mostly external factors that the principal did not have controll over. Having said that, I believe with all my heart that they staff and teachers care about the students and want the best for them. They work very hard.
Selma Elementary is an awesome school. Our daughter has been attending for two years. She has had two of the greatest teachers in the school. We were in tears last year when we had to leave Mrs. Stewart. Our tears turned to smiles when our daughter's teacher was Mrs. Dowling the next year. We have met the principal and the two vice principal and when they say something is going to happen, it happens. Great school!
The school is new and nice. The teachers are good. No gifted classes. No child left behind act. Parent are not listen to at this school when asking for testing for a child. Note: legally Schools have to test a child when a parent request it. You must call the school board for help.
