This is a great school, my daughter has been going here since Kindergarten and is now in the 2nd grade. The curriculum is excellent and I love the fact that they push my child to learn more and not just the basic 2nd grade work. She is reading at a fourth grade level and looks forward to school everyday. The staff has always been very attentive and involved with each student. There are children who attend Pinnacle that have behavior issues, but I feel that it is due to home behavior and parents need to be more involved in the discipline of their children. The staff has changed this year, but overall I think that the school has some great teachers and the principal is doing a great job for his 2nd year. I will keep my daughter here until 8th grade and know that she will achieve success because I am a hands on parent and with the help of the teachers and staff she will succeed.
This school has many problems, mostly because it is funded by a for profit company. Extra curricular programs are non existent and students do not leave being a well rounded person. The middle school is poorly organized. It is wild and there is a lack of discipline
Everyone I have met has been wonderful and helpful. My son looks forward to school. I really like the communiction folder I recieve on a dailly basis.
my child has gone to pinnacle since they opened this upcoming year she will be going to 7th grade and i am looking foward to withdrawing her from pinnacle... Her first year (k) was great . so when we came back the second year for first grade her kindergraden teacher was no longer working there.. should have took that as a warning sign. but her 1st grade year was just ok. 2nd grade was horrible. she got conduct reports for the littlest things and was failing and the teacher gave me no notice . her 5th grade teacher was new to teaching and seemed scared to handle kids. the next year she moved down to 3rd graders. her 6th grade year was just not satifiying enough for me. i had to ask the teachers for updates on my child more than twice. U really have to stay on these teachers cause they will not keep u informed unless u are demand communication from them.it was just close to home and really wish i had made the move years ago. p.s.. they have no sports or club or cheerleading nothing of that nature or very little
I give this school 5 stars. They work with you. I feel they are a advanced school. They care about the kids and parents. They're not there for a paycheck, but to make a diffrence in our children. If they went threw the 12th grade I would want my children to graduate from there school.
My child is in kindergarten. I love this school. I see the growth in how much she has learned. Her teacher is very professional.
My son went there for 3 years grades went from b,c to f I tryed to communicate with the teachers but they had no interest in communicating with me. no class for students with I E P my son did all regular class work most of wich is homework I have no clue what they did in class. expect homework every night and holidays and spring break its a big part of there grade.
This is the worst School i have ever worked in from the ill mannered teachers to the misunderstood students. Children should have more respect from teachers. Teachers have an attiude like they dont want to work, i would not recommend this school under any circumstances
Feedback from teachers has been thorough and timely. Like the fact that you can email the teachers and check your child's grade regularly online. My kids are in the Kindergarten and 5th grade and have had a great 1st year at the school. The office staff, administrators, and most teachers show a great deal of care for the students!
The principal and the teachers are unprofessional and rude. They are very strict. The kids have a dress code which is great but the teachers should have a dress code too. This school does not care about your childs future. The school do not have a nurse on the premises or security. My child will not be returning back.
Considering the condition of the public school system in Cleveland, I was relieved to have my child accepted to Pinnacle. He has special needs that they have been working towards helping him. I am an involved parent and don't expect the school to 'Fix eveything'. I am happy with the school and I think they are doing a good job. They behavior expectations are set high and being strict on 'Little Things' builds character that helps a student be well rounded, not just good grades. I will continue to send my son and his brother will luckily be joining him at Pinnacle. Get involved! They have a tough job.
They don't offer special ed classes. The school has very little security. The staff and teachers can be rude as well.
My child has been going here for two years. Her first year was excellent. Now her second year is horrible. My childs teacher seems to be very disintersted in the childs safety and learning environment. The principal of this school seems not to have a lot of knowledge on what it is to be a principal. The school has no security. I am very dissatified with the progression of the school and with the leaders of the school and some of the teachers. My child will not be returning for a third year.
My child has been going to this school for two years there has been no improvement as far as her grades. The school is strict and they punish the kids for every little thing. There is no security and they don't notify parents where something serious happens. I am not satisfied with the way the school is ran and I will be dienrolling my child in the next couple of months.
The school overall is good. I think they are very strict in some cases too strict for the littler kids. But the teachers are very helpful and seem to care about your children. They always get back in touch with me when I ask.
Horrid. My child was enrolled for 5 months before we disenrolled. Not much learning goes on. Instead, more homework is assigned. Many staff members are rude and unprofessional.
the school is horrible there is lots of fist fights and lots of uncared for grades i moves to flordia from there and my child is now all cought up and getting better grades than before
We moved out of Euclid to get my children into a good school. Discipline at Pinnacle was terrible.
