Handles bullying effectively: Strongly agree


- a
My children have attended other Hawkins County Schools where they have been bullied and nothing was done about because of "politics". McPheeters Bend does not care about "politics" and takes care of bullying issues as soon as they arise.

Effective school leaders: Strongly agree

I believe what makes a school great is it's leadership. If the Principal is not doing his or her job then chances are the teachers are not going to do their jobs. Mrs. Bernard is very good at her job. She is both professional and courteous. She is a "problem-solver" and a mediator. And, she has no interest in belittling the parents or judging the parents of her students. (Some of the other Hawkins County principals could definitely learn from her!)


Develops character: Strongly agree


- a
McPheeters Bend is a positive learning environment and the teachers take their time to both properly educate the children and inform them of proper decision making skills. The teachers at McPheeters Bend "wear many hats" and they effective in all areas.

Teacher effectiveness: Strongly agree


- a
Educational requirements are constantly changing; however, the teachers at McPheeters Bend are always effective at educating their students and providing positive reinforcement for students who may have some difficulties. They know their job requirements and they are extremely effective educators.

I recently had to move my son from Church Hill Elementary to McPheeters Bend and I honestly wish I had made the move sooner! McPheeters Bend is all about educating the children! They are not worried about funding or belittling the parents! My son was behind academically and his teachers at McPheeters Bend, Mrs. Bolton and Mrs. Smith have worked very hard to get him "caught up". For that I'm am grateful. McPheeters Bend promotes a positive atomosphere for the children (something Church Hill Elementary could careless about). Mrs. Bolton and Mrs. Smith as well as Mrs. Bernard (the Principal) go above and beyond their job titles. Other schools in Hawkins County could learn a lot just from the teachers and the leadership of McPheeters Bend.

This school has a family type atmosphere to it. The teachers are involved in providing positive parent-teacher relationships in order to provide a better quality atmosphere of learning for each child. There are several activities throughout the school year that provide parents with oppertunities to be a part of thier child's learning atmosphere. This is a small school that truly cares about its students as well as each family. My children have really enjoyed being a part of this school.
