Tuttle Intermediate Elementary School1

I am not happy with Tuttle schools in general. (with the exception of the Elementary) Several years ago, my children went through middle and high school in Tuttle and I'm sad to say, now my grandchildren are subjected to the same elitist atmosphere. There is a major difference in how your child will be treated based either on money or sports. If you have the first or you are very good at the second, you should do well in Tuttle. Some, not all, of the teachers could not care less about ensuring your child receives a quality education. They cover the material very quickly, not giving a lot of children a chance to adequately learn one concept before immediately moving on to another. When I questioned the school about this process, they explained it had to do with 'state standards' and 'state testing'; there is just not enough time to complete everything this particular curriculum demands. There are a couple of teachers at the elementary school who are ;shining stars' and I am very appreciative my grandchildren were fortunate enough to have them as teachers, but for the most part, Tuttle Schools are like the town of Tuttle. If you were not born in Tuttle, you are an outisder.
