My grandson goes to your school for 3 years now. I think there should be a better way of communication. Sometimes the teacher fills out his communication book and sometimes she doesn't even tell us how or what they did to improve or not. This is the only issue I have with the school. With the bus system I do not know why they have an assistant on the bus for the small ones. She doesn't help them up or down on the bus when they need it. Ya'll can have the bus driver strap them in or the parents. No sense in paying someone who doesn't help the driver. That is my opinion. Other than that I do not have anything negative about the teaching
Excellent school. Great teachers, I love the school.They work well with the children. I and my Family have great experiences!!!
I have a foster child in this school and they have worked with me to discover her strengths and weaknesses. I am very pleased she will have 1 more year in this school. The principal and staff are friendly, courteous and helpful in all of our needs.
My son has been at Goose Creek Primary since he was 3 years old. The staff are warm and inviting. The Special Needs program is great. Each and every person I have met at GCP has been concerned about the welfare and education of my child. My child is greeted by everyone he comes into contact with. I love the Family nights they have at the school. They offer a lot of functions for families to attend. They do school fairs, Water day, Field Day, Field Trips, and much more. The principle offers a Pajama Party every year. Every month the school does a Spirit day and the kids receive popcorn and they do activities. We have had nothing but great experiences. Awesome PTA!
I work at GCP. I really love my job, the kids and my fellow staff members. I look forward to going to work each day working with the children in my class and throughout the school.
The staff is very helpfull, teachers are great and very educated and i like the way things are organized and the involment of parents with the school activities
They work hard to make sure that motivation is always provided. Can't imagine trying to do that for 1700 kids but I DO know that it can't be done without excellent teachers!
My child has been attending this school for the past 2 yrs. I could not ask for better teachers!! My child developed a divine sense of enthusiam for learning AND attending school. She absolutely loves her awards for good behavior and strives every day for better, thanks to the teachers. Parent-teacher involvment and communication is not only more than welcome but encourged, which as a parent is essential for me to feel comfortable trusting the school with my child!! Thanks to all staff members. For future school-aged children whose parents are researching a school, this has been a great experience from kindergarten to now, and this is a wonderful school!!
I have been working at GCP for 5yrs. I have been working w. children w/ special needs it is such a wonderful thing when a student reaches there goal when they have worked so hard in trying to get there.
My son just started school here and we have been very impressed with the procedures in place to keep him safe. It seems like the staff and administration are friendly and professional. The principal already knows my son's name and greets him with a smile in the car rider line each morning. That means a lot to me as a mom. Their library is great - stocked with what looks like all new books and I think they have smartboards in every classroom.
I am a parent and I have never had any problems with this school. I love this school. Everyone, from office staff to teachers to cafeteria workers to custodians, have always been helpful to me and my family.
Recently the school put on a principal pj party for the kids who collected 75 otter bucks.My two kids really enjoyed themselves and it was an incentive for them doing good things.I really do believe that this is a good school.teachers that care and love their student this to me is really important.We've had the same kindergarden techer for our two older kids and is planning on her teaching our yolungest son.I believe that you can always find fault with something but I'm the type to always find the good in anything!
I have been very pleased with the progress my child has made this year. his teacher cares about him and is very supportive and understanding. I was impressed with the various art opportunities - artists in residence offered throughout the year. principal is very understanding and will listen to concerns - knowledgeable about early childhood growth and development.
My daughter is 4 and is attending speech therapy at this school twice weekly.....on that note ....my experience is limited with the staff and the school. Unfortunately .....the experience I have had has been less than adequate. The staff is disturbingly 'unconcerned' in nature.....not to mention the fact that they are very unorganized. They have thus far LOST my daughters entire file, registration, copies of birth certificate, ss card, emergency info twice.....yes......twice. No one could tell me where it went or who it went too or even seemed to understand why this was such an issue with me that my daughters info was 'floating around somewhere'. With this knowledge I will be sending my daughter to a different elementary school next year.
Very large school with very large classes. Most of the teachers are good teachers, but are not good with teaming up with parents - very cold.
I found this school very cold. The staff was not very helpful or friendly. I am glad that we moved away from Goose Creek Primary.
