This school is a joke! By far the worst school. Don't bother asking anyone there any questions because you will receive a different answer by every one. I wrote a letter describing exactly what days he's a car rider and what days he's bus and one will call and say they didn't receive a letter another will say they don't know why someone called because they have the letter. My son gets lunch charges even when he doesn't attend school! I have only encountered ONE nice/helpful person there, everyone else has been VERY RUDE and inconsiderate to me! I just can't believe the attitude on the staff, it makes me afraid of what my son will pickup from attending there. Absolutely in shock over this school!
Love it! Office staff super sweet and supportive. The principal when my kids attended has since retired, so not sure of principal. Mr. Ross for 5th grade!!!! Love him, he is so good with the kids!
As a military family my children and I have been through a lot of elementary schools but this is by far the worst experience I have ever had with the public school system. My son is a special needs child in the fourth grade there and their program is a joke along with their teachers, anti bullying committee, guidance counselor and principal.
I REALLY WISH THAT MRS. CAMPBELL COULD MOVE UP TO THE 3RD GRADE WITH MY SON AND EVERY YR AFTER THAT. MY SON LOVES HER SO MUCH AND SO DO WE. SHE IS THE BEST TEACHER IN THE WORLD.
my daughter goes to this school and they are very bad at helping parents help thier children for an example my daughter is being evaluated for adhd or other behavior problems and she still gets sent home for her behavior. and shes loosing out on her education and being able to be around peers her age. i have contacted people to resolve this problem and i eithier get sent to a automated service or a voicemail to someone whos on vacation or whatever and i have made it clear that i need it resolved now because they have not kept her in school suspended her 1 day or i have kept her home due to this problem i admit my daughter can be bad but again shes being evaluated for behavior problems and they know this but apparently do not understand. i moved to clarksville hopeful that she would do better at this school but even the last school worked with her and me to resolve these complaints of minglewood staff.
All of my 3 children have attended Minglewood Elem, and we loved it. The teachers were excellent and caring. The principal, Ms. Winters, was very involved with the everyday activities of the classes. We relocated to another area w/ allegedly a 'higher' rating, and wanted to return to Minglewood.
My son has been at Minglewood for two years and this school has been wonderful. I am very grateful to all the staff that have worked with him for always showing him such kindness and patience. In particular, his kindergarten teacher, Ms. Bonner, who helped him adjust to school and Ms. Bailey, his first grade teacher, who helps him do his best. Here I found teachers who, despite so many demands on their time, were able to treat each child as an individual. The only shortcomings I could point out were district wide and probably due to budget restraints, such as the menu (too much processed / junk food) and the lack of school based before/after care. These are district-wide problems that parents should bring up. But the staff at Minglewood do an excellent job.
This school is wonderful. My child has been attending for a couple of years. The teachers work hard to help the parents and child achieve their best. My child has learning disabilities and behavioral disabilities and this school is wonderful. They go the extra mile. The have been very understanding and have worked with my child extensively. The school staff is very professional and helpful. They have done alot to keep my child in public education where my child can socialize with regular children. I am very pleased. My child will stay in this school until he goes to middle school.
My child has been going to Minglewood Elm. since kindergarden she is now going into the third grade. The teachers and staff have been wonderful. They have always been willing to go the extra mile to help her in any way possible. I have never had any problems. My daughter loves this school her teachers. I recommend this school to anyone.
This staff is the best in town, I love them and they do a great job!
The staff and principles are not understanding to the needs of the students and parents. Their attitudes are very unprofessional. There is not enough room for the children to be their own person. My child attended this school from Kindergarten to Second grade. My child had extreme difficulties in school and was sent home from school at least once a week. My child now attends a different school and is doing much better.
This is a very good school. I have had no problems since my children have attended this school which has been sine 2002. We have been here for 6 yrs. I have 4 children who have attended there and one who is currently at this school. The teachers have been awesome and very involved.
My oldest child has recently started Kindergarten at Minglewood E.S. this year. I am impressed by his teacher, Mrs. Bonner. I love the 'Kindergarten Agenda's which detail the curriculum for the week as well as my child's daily behavior stamps. It is good to see this school does still have recesses, gym and some sort of computer lab. I would like a larger Pre-K. Unfortunately, this being its first year only 20 students were selected by the county's main office. First priority being with low income and english as a second language. This is dishearting for us. Why should my child be at a disadvantage because of our income? I would also like to see more extra curricular activities i.e. band, sports, children's clubs. For the fact we are new to the school and area, I am not sure if these are available. I would recommend this school to other parents.
You get what you put into it Florida native. This school has been very helpful to my son who has grown from all the help the teachers and staff at Minglewood have given to him. I have two other children whom attended minglewood and they have gained all the skills and knowledge needed to advance in middle school. Minglewood deals with alot of military families who are not always avaialble to help, but for my experience, all I've had to do was offer my time and let them now my availability, and I was there for each and every event. this school cares about its reputation in the community. it cares about the children and is a wonderful place for a childs education to begin.
Of all the schools my children has attended this is the worst. Since moving from Florida,it seems like my child took a turn for the worse. There is not enough parent involvement, and the layout of the extra curricular activities need some rearranging to where the teachers get the needed training and tools they need to teach their classes. The academic programs could be better. The reading program needs some improvement. The excellerated reading program needs to be alliminated all together. Reading comprehension should be taught during classroom instruction instead of on a computer. My experience with this school has not been good.
