Idlewild elementary is a great school! My daughter goes to this school from kindergarten. The teachers here care about the success of the children and encourage them to be their best.

My daughter's teacher uses a variation of the Montessori approach and by all accounts the children in her class do very well.

My daughter started kindergarten this past August and has absolutely thrived in the environment. The Principal (Mr. Thompson) is simply the best. My daughter's teacher is fabulous. The homework isn't "new" material, it is a review of what has been covered in class and isn't terribly onerous (unless you procrastinate and do it all the last night). The school has a good student body makeup and parents seem really involved.

First day of Kindergarten the school "misplaced" my five year old.I had to leave my job to go to the school.First night of Kindergarten I open the packet and he has 9 worksheets to complete by friday.None of this material has been gone over yet but it needs to be completed by Friday.So basically I am his teacher and the kindergarten teacher is the babysitter...he may as well be home schooled...then 3 days in I go to pick him up and the teacher decides at pick up time to tell me in front of every parent and student that "We have behavior issues. He won't sit still and he is either looking up too much or down to much...she didn't have time to make it clear or respond to my questions...so I keep hearing this is one of the best schools in Memphis....maybe but he apparently didn't get the best teacher.My wife and I are very displeased with the whole thing.Gave the school rating a two based on the above mentioned statements....
