Culleoka Unit School 4

Posted September 16, 2015

I have three children that go to this school. We moved to a small farm after spending over a decade in a very prestigious school district with top notch schools, so we were very worried about sending our kids to a Maury County School, given the rather horrendous reputation of Maury schools in general. Culleoka Unit School is a very interesting school. It's probably not like anything that you've been a part of before. It's K-12 and it's BIG. It doesn't have a lot of programs you may be used to - like Art or Football. The music program is also significantly reduced and they have no band or orchestra. The educators and staff at the school are outstanding and compassionate, but they are doing their best inside the confines of a district fraught with cronyism. The schools are the one's that suffer as money that should otherwise go to education gets misappropriated by the county. This means that there are sometimes not enough teachers, large classes with not enough desks, and sadly, drastically reduced extra curricular activities. Is the school good? Yes. Are the teachers good? Absolutely. Is the staff accommodating? Totally. Does Maury County suck as a district? You bet. And our kids and educators are the ones who are suffering. As a parent, you are going to have to make sure that you provide your kids with those extra curricular activities and stay on top of their education as the teachers and staff just don't have the time to hand hold each and every child, even though they so desperately want to. If you aren't prepared to get involved - more involved than you might otherwise be at another school, I would not send you children. Maury County as a district should be embarrassed. Not the teachers and schools, but the local government. Education is not a top priority and you can see it everywhere you go. Our teachers and students deserve better.

Mr. Harris is one of my favorite people. I'm really glad that the students have him and I'm grateful for all that he does - and he does a LOT.

Every teacher I've interacted with at this school is incredibly articulate, caring and talented. These folks are top notch. They are putting 100% of themselves into these kids.

They push the kids hard. No doubt. Especially in the elementary grades. Don't worry about the education part, they are going to get it.

Sometimes the school comes off as being indifferent, but it's only because they are stretched so thin. When you engage with them, you find extremely compassionate people that are basically unsupported by the district.

We have a uniquely blended family. One natural child, 3 adopted. We have been welcomed into the Cully family with open arms. Teachers, councilors, staff and students are helpful and understanding. GREAT school! A tiny perfect piece of old fashioned community in a wonderious tech savvy campus.

My children went to this school for middle and high school. Both received scholarships and my youngest child won academic scholarships and had a full ride to a private college. There are now honors courses and higher level math and science courses as well. Students get out of their education what they put into it.

I have 4 children enrolled in Culleoka and I have been nothing but pleased with the school. One of my sons is in first grade and they helped diagnose him with a reading disability and have been actively helping him with his problem. The special ed teacher has been working with him since Kindergarten. My youngest son is in Kindergarten and his birthday is on the cut off date to start school so he is the youngest in his class and his teacher was very supportive and helpful with him. My oldest came from a private school in California and the level of learning is almost equal, and he enjoys the computer classes offered at school and has excelled in that area. My other first grader has been challenged and encouraged properly in his academics. So, to all the people who gave the school a bad review you might need to check back now, it must have changed in the last few years for the better.

this school offers very little in sports, extra curricular activities or college prep. one parent said it perfectly by saying this school resembles a cult. bullies are allowed to continue to be bullies without any punishment. many kids are raising kids before graduation. there is not much to dissuade this type of behavior either. there are very few teachers and administrators who are truly concerned with the well-being and future of the kids. i say if you can send your kids to another school.
