The teachers and staff are all great and dedicated. My granddaughter has been there for 4 years now and on A honor roll every year. The only problem I have seen is lack of parental involvement both in and out of school (ie making sure homework is done for the next day and keeping kids in school all day everyday)
School is HORRIBLE BAD STAFF always texting gossiping when i went their. if you even give the wrong vibe they will snap at you and ask you to leave as far as education my child did not learn anything. instead of educating my child they just "babysat" i am taking my kids to a whole different school. I ABSOLUTELY AM DISSATISFIED AND TRIED SPEAKING TO THE PRINCIPLE BUT NO HELP. Went to state board and said they would take care of it i am hoping its true that "they will be a whole new stafff next year" I will see it when I believe it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! -Parent
my children have attended coolidge for three years.all three of my kids are honor roll students and have been well educated to this point.the school has a great staff and they do the best they can with what they have,i have seen alot of parents put bad reviews on websites about coolidge,the biggest problem with the school is the lack of parent involvement with thier children,if people would set a good exsample for thier children and have guidelines and rules in the homes of the students coolidge would be a much better place i think that the school needs more parents to get involved instead of sitting on the computer complaining about things do something to make a diffrence or the issues with the school that you have are just as much your fault no matter who you arer pointing fingers at.
The school is really under developed. It looks like awful and most of the teacher could not be bothered.
We are moving to Moore as soon as possible. Bad district, bad principal and only a handful of good teachers. Leadership should exemplify and reward positive behavior. Instead, Greenfield allows it to perpetuate and fester into a deeper mess at Coolidge. Get rid of Greenfield and hire someone like its former principals, Mr. Condren and/or Mr. Thompson. Now those two principals knew how to handle things effectively.
I feel that coolidge elementary is a very good school. The teachers are the greatest that i have come into contact with since my grandson has been going to school. Keep up the great work coolidge. You are #1 in my book.
My children have attended Coolidge Elem. for over 10 years between them. I believe Coolidge Elem. is doing the best they can with what resources they have. I see alot of negative reviews for Coolidge, its staff and other concerns but how many people are trying to make Coolidge a better school? How many parents are involved at the school? I believe that you should not throw too many stones when you yourself live in a glass house!! It is up to the community as a whole to better our school system. The principal,teachers, all staff and parents should work as a whole to make Coolidge a better place for all of our students now and in the future.
The only bright spot at Coolidge was the nurse and only one office staff member who chose to stay away from the gossip and was always kind to every child I saw her talking to. Academically this school seriously lacks and there isn't any extracurricular activities.
This school is not the kind of school you would want for your child. The principal is not ever responsive when it comes to issues. She always has to shift the blame to others rather than do her job. Its all about what it looks like on paper not what is really best for teachers or students.
The good news - This will be our last year at this school! - The school has more grafitti on the walls and playground equipment then ever before. I see broken glass on the grounds the children play on. The staff and administrators are rude and unresponsive. I look forward to the next school year because we will be moving to a school that has better resources, facilities and a more caring staff. Coolidge elementary school has forgot how to provide a quality educational product. Leadership is lacking.
I agree with the first two the #1 problem is principal Sue Greenfield! My child has gone to coolidge since kindergarten, now entering 3rd. That was so far, his best year, before Greenfield. The graffitti is way out of control, the least the principal can do is paint over cuss words on playground, the kids see this everyday they play. The teachers (some of them) are down right rude, not to mention the office staff. If they don't want to be there, or don't like kids...GET ANOTHER JOB! The lack of field trips is very dissapointing, I could go on forevever, but they only give me so much room. Someone please save our school!
As you can see there is something in common with most of these reviews. BAD PRINCIPAL! There also needs to be more security at the school to control the grafitti on the outside of the building. I feel that if we had a different principal, many of our problems would change if we had someone who actually cared about the children, our school and the community. I hope to move soon so my children do not have to go thru another year of this.
I agree with the first rating. I too have changed my childrens school. The principal here is NO GOOD at what she does. My children have been picked on so many time's it's unreal, and yet she did NOTHING about it. I would not agree to putting your children here. My children have also been sick, time after time this year, for the fact they are STILL working on the school and we as parents told it would be done a week after school started and yet it's NOT finished. I would say Coolidge needs a new principal and get Sue Greenfield out of there.
FIND ANOTHER SCHOOL DISTRICT FOR YOUR CHILDREN! This school and district are terrible! Under the so-called leadership of Principal Sue Greenfield, this school tolerates bullying and does not abide by the district's policy on this action. As a parent and homeroom mother, I was NEVER contacted by school administration about the bullying incident. After my child brought it to my attention and I went to the principal's office for more information on how they were handling the issue, I was told it was unfortunate but 'their hands were tied since DHS was involved.' No harassment incident report was completed until after I withdrew my child from the district.
This school is absolutely amazing. The teachers are so caring of what happens to their students. They offer to help out in any way they can. Teachers call parents and send notes home and do everything in their power to let them know how their child is acting or performing in class. They want there students to succeed in life and majority of the students attending this school probably will. I went to this elementary school and I now am a sophomore and I have a gpa of 4.11 and am in all honors classes and I will graduate early. I would say that I owe alot of it to this school. I was reading words such as paleontologist in the first grade because that was one of my spelling words from mrs. chalmers. It is a wonderful school and it won't dissapoint you.
