Falling Water Elementary School4

This school is one of the best kept secrets in Hamilton County. The principal is approachable, warm and intelligent. The teachers that I know are committed and do their homework too. I am thrilled that I found this school and truly believe that my child is getting the best there is in Hamilton County.
Over the past two years Falling Water has not been the same. It was once a very parent friendly environment, the school is now very closed to parents. Not as fun for students as it once was. I feel this is all do to the principle. She is not a good asset to Falling Water. Sorry to say. Still love the teachers and Falling Water.
My School Falling Water Elem. is a wonderful environment for kids and adults. My school could improve very much. It has wonderful staff and falculty. It just got an addition from LOWES of and outdoor classroom. This school is lovely and in this county I recommend it the most.
We recently transferred to the area from Colorado. This school is so much better for my daughter than the two schools she attended there. Although she is one of very few minorities in the school, this does not seem to be an issue. She has a great relationship with her teachers and feels so much more comfortable with her classmates and with her school work. Great principal, too!
My daughter transferred from Redbank elementry in the middle of the school year. We could not ask for a better transition. The staff was great and this school is truley a blessing to us and her. This school is a wonderful place for students to really learn. My daughter was basically doing second grade work in Redbank. (She is in the third grade). She is now doing work that is far more advanced. She has an I.Q. of 140 and the gifted class is far better than Redbank and meets twice a week instead of once, sometimes at Redbank they would not even meet. This is a great school!
My first daughter started Kindergarten at FWES in 2004. My second daughter is now in 1st grade at FWES. I have never had one problem with the school, the curiculum, the faculty and staff or the parents at this school. When we tell people we live in Falling Water, their response is often, 'I hear that's a good school.' Of course, we agree!!!
My children have attended this school since Kindergarten. They loved it and the teachers are very caring and they want your child to succeed. There is tremendous parent involvement. I could not of asked for a better school for my children to attend.
This is a true community school. Small class sizes and a secure faculty make for a wonderful environment. The staff work very hard without benefit of extra money to spend on the students like they have at 'on notice' schools. Falling Water is the only 'non-mountain' sch. to be labeled 'exemplary'. This school also won the Tn. Incentive Award of over $4,000.00 because of the high value added test scores and high attendance. It was the only elem. sch. in the county to win this. It is a top notch school. I wouldn't have my children any where else! Keep this school open to continue this fine tradition of excellence in education.
