The secretary is rude to military families. I pulled the kids out after one long, frustrating year. As the face of the school, and the person who gets to decide whom you speak to next, you would think that they'd stick someone personable in that job. I'm so glad that I never have to deal with her again, and that she won't be able to sneer at my husband in his uniform anymore.
My daughter attends kindergarten here! Her teacher Mrs. Williams is great. My daughter tells me everyday how much she loves her teacher and her friends (including specialty teachers like p.e. & music). They have a lot of nice things to offer the kids for learning. The building is really nice and the office & staff have been great on any encounter I had. I like the awards they do because my daughter works hard not to mark stars or get in trouble and I think it is good for the kids! Also one of my daughters friends in her class learns sign language and because of this my daughter even bemefits she knows her colors, alphabet and some key words! Honestly, I hope her friend is in a class with her every year because I think that is an amazing learning experience! I don't think I could be more pleased then I'am now! Gladly looking forward to the next 4 years at this school. The way it is zoned right now were zoned for northeast middle and high after rossview elementary and Im not to excited about that; if the zoning don't change by the time she is in middle school I will be moving to keep my daughter in all of the Rossview Schools! I think this school is wonderful in every way!
We have been very pleased with Rossview Elementary. The teachers worked very hard with our children and treated them as individuals. We were previously at Sango, where we weren't very happy and the warmth and change has been tremendous.
Our family recently moved to the Rossview area, and have been very pleased with both the teachers and administration of Rossview Elementary. The children have a great sense of school pride, and really take the school's mission statement to heart....this would indicate great leadership and clear communication. As a new school, there were times of struggle with organization and/or consistent communication, but I feel confident this will improve with each school year. The PTO is outstanding, and the technology that is provided for the children is terrific. My children looked forward to the awards ceremonies each 9 weeks, and knew that awards are given for excellence and excellence takes extra effort. This was a great learning tool to use with both my children. We look forward to the 2010-2011 school year!
Great school year, however I along with other parents have a great concern about how academic and character awards are given. Some students received the same awards each 9 weeks, while others never received an award, which were very well behaved students. Some students were relatives of administration and faculty and did not do anything out of the ordinary that other students in the school had done. Many students left awards feeling down and upset because they received nothing. Some students were on the honors list for report card, however did not get their name called out at awards. A great many parents have expressed their concern about the way awards are carried out. I hope next year awards are given out differently, or non at all.
With it being a brand new school and a new principal, many had reservations. I believe this school is one of the best in Clarksville! My 4th and 5th grader loves the school and their teachers. They are both doing great academically and psychosocially!
