If I could give it less than one star I would. Since the district change this school has become a nightmare. They threw teachers into grades they weren't used to teaching - thus getting run over by the bad kids. I can't even say it's really the kids' fault because they have parents who could care less what their children are doing. The teachers of the older students are too busy trying to be "cool" to the point they have 13 yr old students over to their house to play with their 9 yr old daughters? What happened to drawing the line between teacher and friend? I am NOT having my son return this year. It was one thing after another, I could write on and on - and I see someone mentioned bullying in a comment back from 2005. Not much has changed since!
So thankful for that my husband joined the United States Navy!! When we lived in Toledo,Ohio. Our daughter went to Reynolds in grade K. She was one of the brightest students. My husband was station in VA we were still here because she was finishing out her school year. My car broke down, i had to depend on family members and friends. Our daughter was late alot. While i was in the process of getting our car fix. They told me that they were going to held her back and that she wasnt going to go to 1st grade. My husband and I was very upset! He immediately moved us to Norfolk,VA. Where she now attend one of the top Elementary Schools in the Nation! They immediately start testing our daughter as soon as we arrived! She ranked in the 99 Percentile in the Nation!! She is now in all honor classes as well as the Nationwide Gifted Program. She wish to become a scientist and win the noble peace prize. This school and the whole TPS School system should really be ashamed of the quality of their school system. Its really amazing they still have jobs! Any other organization was operating that way would be shut down!
My son loves waking up and going to school. He enjoys the activities performed from the time he walks into the classroom until the last bell rings to go home. Reynolds Elementary is very interactive with their children and when my son is happy, I'm happy.
Dear concerned parent, I hear your cry. I agree 30 %. However I do know there are many teachers that are concerned. Unfortunately the bad ones seem to speak louder.
Some of the staff at this school do not put education first. They are too worried about all of the bad kids and not caring about the students that need help and are being bullied. It is upsetting to me because there are teachers that care and why aren't they here at Reynolds Elementary. We need you!!! I am a concerned parent and this school needs some serious attention...the kids are #1!!!
The activities are very poorly organized, this school is a nightmare... It is falling apart and the children seem to be running the entire school!
a very rough school.They have a no bullying policy that does not work because those who bully get no consequence.Not enough supervision on the students.
