This school is so slack. I have two kids that attend here, all they do is down talk the kids, the staddress that is. The principal is not much of a help neither, whatever her staff say she is with them all the way. They always labeling the kids and they wondering why the kids act out on them, if a child acts out a couple times that child now haves a name to them as being very bad, very disrespectful and then when you tell the principle she don't care because she does the same. I'm so ready to get my kids out this school system, I hate it with a passionate!!!!! I'm one mad mom..
Both of my children attend this school. I have witnessed both ends of the teaching spectrum. There are teachers that inspire and encourage students to learn. Student behavior is very poor and disrespectful. I strongly believe that more parents need to take responsibility at home in developing their children.
I am parent who have 2 children at Estill Elementary that never get any professional help.

I have attending meeting and observed the children at school. This school is in terrible shape. Instruction is weak. Enthusiastic children are punished for being outspoken, and silence is golden in the classroom. Gone are the days when children sit quitely at a desk and memorize spelling words and math facts. These teachers need to be made aware that we are in a 21st century. Students have to be taught to think critically and express themselves well verbally as well as on paper in the areas of math and Language arts. I am not surprised by the scores on the PACT.
