My daughter attends this school and she has an IEP. I feel that her teachers aren't making the effort to make sure that my daughter is able to keep up in class. If you see a student who's grade is below average you would think the teacher would call the parent and not continue on with progress report and report card as a below average for their students. Every day I have to teacher her a lesson plan first before we can continue on to the homework that she is assigned from the teachers. She is missing homework and only has half of the homework that is supposed to be brought home every day. We are new to this school system and I don't like it. We'll if this student is struggling with certain areas that you yourself read in her IEP report don't you think that you would have a concern in those areas to help the student out? Right now I'm am not happy with this teaching system when it comes to special need kids with IEP reports the special ed teacher lacks a lot. I would not recommend this school to a parent who has a child that is delayed in certain areas with an IEP report. I'm looking into another school that can cater to my child's needs. Not a happy parent!

My son attended this school for 2 years and we loved it! We are military and we were nervous about moving here since we heard a lot of bad things about some of the schools but after our experience I would recommend them to anyone!!

Teachers and administrators are excellent! Both years my son has attended Northeast, his teachers communicate well and have demonstrated exemplary foresight identifying potential problems and addressing them with our cooperation before they became problems. Love this school.

My daughters teach Mrs Jana Moffet was amazing! I wish she could be my daughters teacher every year. The school isn't perfect I feel they could do a better job including parents in their childs education. The car rider pick-up line is HORRIBLE you have to get there an hour before school lets out to get your kid on time. If you want to go in and pick them up you have to check them out early. I wish the school would allow you to go to your childs classroom and pick them uo when school lets out, I like to talk to the teacher every now and then to see how things are going. But at NEE they do not promote that.

I have not been extremely impressed with this school and their discipline techniques. My sons have very good behavor don't ever get in trouble yet they are loosing their recess all the time, not because of their behavior, but their classes behavior. What motivation does this give our kids, too keep doing good, and or do better!? I also think our kids as a whole, do not get enough recess! Kids need to be able to be kids too!

No stars for this school. My gradchild started attending this school during this school year (2011-2012) and the amount of incidents that have accumlated over this time has left me speechless. One problem was solved through the school and parents working together to obtain a solution, even though this took many meeting. Then another problem arose. There is no end when teachers and administrative staff do not look out for the welfare of children in their care to prevent them from being harmed.

My daughter has attended northeast for her first year of elementary school. I could not ask for a betters front office staff. Well one to be exact. The other I have nothing nice to say anything about so we will leave it at that. Her teacher Mrs. Moffet I couldn't ask for anyone better to teach my daughter. The communication between her and parents it perfect. NEES is lucky to have a teacher that goes above and beyond for her students!

My daughter is in kindergarten and I love the way the teacher works with the parents. My daughter is a little bit behind in her speech, but her teacher is always encouraging my daughter and giving me resourses to help her.

My son has attended Northeast Elementary School for 2 years now and we have had a great experience. It is clean, well equiped, and has an excellent communication system with the parents. We had 2 wonderful teachers (K&1) who gave our son a super start to his education experience. The only negative is a rude office staff! But fortunately, the rest of the school shines!

This school is so bad I can't even bring myself to give it a star. The staff is not supportive nor friendly. The communication between the parent/teachers and staff is sad. The work is insulting and not challenging to the student. The after school programs are near impossible to get into thanks to over crowding, even if the child needs it. If this is the best clarksville has to offer then our children are all in trouble.

We have a 10 year old who has been diagnosed with ADD. Any parent who is faced with this understands how challenging it is to teach a child with ADD. The teachers and faculty at Northeast have done an extremely good job at seeing he has the best opportunity to succeed. My son was an A student in the 3rd grade and is now doing great things in the 4th. We re fortunate and thankful for the friendship and professionalism shown us as parents.

Last year was a nightmare, office staff RUDE, teacher never returned notes sent to school or e-mail messages. No budget for classroom supplies parents must pay a 'school fee' per child. Over crowed class rooms and my child was changed to a new class half way thru the year and her class played catch up till the end and never did get to the point they should have been. Unhappy 2nd grade experience we hope and pray 3rd grade will present with a much better year. Will keep you posted!

My children have been attending NEES for 3 years. I can honestly say that I have never had a bad experience in this school. The teachers are very helpful and appreciate any time you are able to help out in the class. Which has helped me stay aware of what my children are learning in class. The office staff is also very accommodating. They always have smiles and hellos and seem to drop what they're doing when you have a question or concern. (Reading the other reviews I'm assuming there has been a change of office staff in the last few years.) In no way could they be referring to the present staff. Although I wish there was before and after school specials for the children, I realize that it's not the choice of the individual school for these programs.

I have two children who went to NEES, and I believe the teachers are wonderful at their job, but I agree the office staff does need a lot of work. Just trying to get my children transferred to a new school has taken me weeks, and because the office staff cannot get me what I need my children may have to start school late. It is very unfortunate for a school with great teachers to have to deal with that office staff. I hope all these reviews will send a message but so far I see that it has not.

My son attended NEES from second to fifth grade and it was the best experience for him as well as us. He had wonderful teachers and the staff was always wonderful. The principal and her staff are very professional and make all military families feel at home. We loved this school and only wished that our son could have continued his middle school years at NEES!

My children attended this school for one year, and it was a nightmare. While their teachers were very good..the principal was one of the worst authority figures, we have ever dealt with in all of our years of public education..very uncooperative, manipulative, and quite rude. Frankly, we were relieved when the school year ended. Also, they were always grubbing for money in the form of fund-raisers. What happens to the funds designated for the school budget? Because, we were always spending money on supplies for our children, AS WELL AS, requests sent home from the teachers to supply the classroom with items, due to lack of budget funding..

I loved this School! My girls attended this school for 3 years and really enjoyed the PE , Art ,music program and specially the Math super star program. We are a military Family and the teachers & the principal, were very cooperative and understanding towards our family's need, before the deployment, during and after my husbands return from Iraq...we were able to take short family vacations during the school year and our daughters took all their homework with us. The ESL program really helped them to become proficient in both English & Spanish and the ESL summer program helped them tremendously. And during my Multiple Sclerosis Relapse, the school staff educated my girls on my disease, comforted them and kept their rutines. We are very pleased with the experience. This school has very dedicated teachers.

I love this school. I have a child that is physically handicapped and another child with ADHD. This school has done excellant with inclusion classes and working towards the IEPs. The office staff are very friendly and they go out of their way to accomodate your needs. Mrs. Amos, the pricipal, and Mrs. Sisk, the VP, are fantastic. The two teachers that my sons had, were great. They kept me informed daily of my children's progress, problems, concerns, etc. I wish that my oldest child had the opportunity of going to this school when he was younger and first diagnosed ADHD. I love the idea that the school is totally locked down, so that

My child has been attending this school for 3 years now. The overall feel of the school is awful! It's overcrowded, doesn't have an aids to help in the inclusion class my daughter is in, and the office staff is horrible! There needs to be something done about this staff at this school.

Both my boys go to this school and I am pretty satisfied with their education thus far. My sons third grade teacher has been vigilant about testing him for some concerns we had and the school's 'support team' has been very responsive. While I have never met the principal officially, her front desk staff does not set a very high standard for interpersonal skills. All but one that I have met, have been unfriendly and act as if you are disturbing them. (This has been on every encounter since September, even on the phone). Although the principal is a wonderful person, I'm sure, she needs to raise the bar here since this is the first impression. All the fundraising this school does I think is over the top. I would much rather donate money to the school and use it as a deduction.

The quality of academic programs seem to be ok. As far as everything else, it is the worst school my chilren have ever attended. The office staff, including the principal, are very rude. They are not accomatading at all. As far as picking up your child at that school wether it early or at dismissal time is a 'Nightmare'. It takes 25 to 30 minutes to get your child as they load the children one by one into each car. This school also has a policy that you can't pick up your child between 3:00pm -3:20pm. I think this is unlawful. This school is over populated with no budget for supplies.

This school proved excellent for my daughter, an above average student. However, a child psychologist diagnosed my son with a learning disability as well as identified many characteristics of Asperger's Syndrome, but the school refuses to accomodate my child's disabilities. Despite the reccommendations of the doctor, his first grade teacher, and both of his parents, the school makes no effort to place my son in an inclusion class. He appears to be labeled as a discipline problem, and at the age of six has been suspended from school and the bus three times. While his first grade teacher proves excellent and provides in-class accomodations, I remain concerned for the remainder of his education.

I am happy with my childrens education, however, I am a bit confused on the budget problem. Where does all this money go? Maybe an audit would help. I also believe afterschool programs should be available through the school at elementary level and not start at middle school age.

All I have to say is in my day, my parents never had to pay so much for public education. Everytime my child brings home a fundraiser, I wonder what happens with the yearly budget and why we are always in debt for education.
