I caught the principle checking out one of the teachers. That made me feel uncomfortable. The counselor is a know it all (which would be fine if she really did know it all) and gets into everyones business. If you are talking to anyone, including your spouse and she is within ears shot, she will interrupt you and voice her opinion. Other than that the teachers seem to like their jobs and care for the kids. The teachers will not stand for any disrespect and I like that. I will say that in my opinion they can be a little hard on the kids at times.

Judging by the grammer and punctuation in some of the reviews, I have a hard time taking any of them seriously. If the parents can't display proper grammer and punctuation, how can they judge the educators? My son will possibly be going to this school next year, if I choose not to homeschool myself. From what I've heard from others in the area who have both attended this school as well as have put their children in this school, it doesn't sound like a bad institution.

I have been envolved with this school for 21 years. My children and grandchildren have attended this school and I have been a volunteer. Over all they have received a quality education. As with any school weve a minor problem now and then. What I have found lacking are the following: Art and music are a glorified study hall, Band is only for those that choose to take it. The report cards no longer contain letter grade Attendance policy- 5 sick days in a school year Parents are only envolved when invited The curriculum is so jam packed they can no longer do the programs parent volunteers did in the classroom, like special art or music programs, these are important, its proven a student doing music will excell, and learn discipline for good study habits, to make a well rounded student The school lunches are awful, we had excellent cooked meals, now its microwaved tv dinners, I have watched numerous kids the throw away their entire lunch, they would rather go hungry they have to walk outside in inclimate weather for some classes All doors are locked except the main door, this is fine, except child sent on an errand are handed a key and are outside by themselves

My son went to Elem in Englewood K an was passed to 1st an when I moved he had to be put back to K because he wasn't up to grade level an was tested an made a 58. Englewood didn't even test him. I was told they hadn't move up the school work to state required level yet. I have moved back to Englewood but driving my son to the other school an I'm very disapointed. I thought Englewood was a good school this is hurting other kids. Something needs to be done. It has happen to other kids that's come from there.

My daughter has been going to this school for 8 years now. She is very good student. Last year was the first year that she has been in trouble in school. The way they handled her punisment was great.I will miss all of the staff next year when she goes to high school. I just hope they will be just as good to her then like they are now. Crystal's mom.

My daughter attended Englewood Ele. last year and was in Jan Dingess' Kendergarten class. She can read, understands rules and has great social skills. I am also greatful for the atmosphere in which the school sets. We loved getting to be involved with school activities and being able to get an inside view of who this school works. More than anything my daughter felt loved and secure during a time when the world seemed very insecure. As a parent that felt wonderful. I also want to personally thank Jan and others for their longevity. God knows we need teachers like we have at our school. I pray and thank God everyday for all of you. Have a great 2005-6 year!

I couldn't dream of sending my children anywhere else.

Like the school real well and all the staff but would like to see some classes or teachers try and devote time with students that excel in that grade level in some areas. I know this would be hard with the class sizes but what a great benefit to the students even if some of the work was outside the classroom. (At home) Mrs. Dowdy is a great teacher and tries hard to help all. Does alot of extra things in her class that mean alot. (growth of a butterfly for one, who am I book etc. Do have l in (K) this yr. do hope she can get Miss Hammonds as a great (K) teacher! Thanks to Mr. Decker for all his help and concern around the school.
