This school is HORRIBLE! These are the following problems there: 1.) Lunch monitors use inappropriate language to students. (My daughter came home asking me what "callate el osico" means. This is spanish telling the students to be quiet, but in a cursing way.) 2.) I am never greeted when I come in contact with the Family Representative or anyone from the administration office. 3.) The principle shows love and affection ONLY when parents are around. (I have been there when she does not know I am there.) 4.) A teacher asked my daughter if she and her sister had different fathers, since they have different last names. I told the school, again, nothing resulted in this. The principle has been reported multiple of times and still nothing has been done. I am transferring my children to a different school this year.
My child is a 504 student who has struggled at this terrible elementary for over 2 years. She barely passed the year and I have had to fight with the staff to get her the assistance age needs. No one cares.she hates school and the kids and teachers trat her like a freak. She is a sad 9 year old who feels alone and unwanted at this school. I am filing a complaint with the AISD, not even to the principal followed through on the promises to help. So frustrated with this school :-(
This school is a terrible school. I have two children enrolled in this school. Both have been bullied by students as well as TEACHERS. This should not be allowed to happen. I have been working my way through the appropriate channels and even the principal is ignorant to what's going on at her school. Next step is superintendent and if need be news channels. I have had meetings with teachers, vice principal, principal and NOTHING has been resolved. With the bullying they say "They have no recollection of any incidents" so my son is the "liar" here. There's no way possible the "ADULT" could be lying here right? This school is unorganized, unorthodox, and a vast majority of the staff is incompetent. I can't believe anyone would run a school this way. The administration tells you what you want to hear long enough for you to feel the issue is being resolved in hopes that you the parent, will forget. This is out of control!
I have talked to the vice principle about some suggestions and have yet to see anything happen. The drop off and pick up methods are a mess, the PTA has, well, I am not sure anyone there really knows how to start it up right. Most events I have been to were so unorganized. So far the teachers are great, I just wish mainly they would have sent out my suggestions to the other parents about the pick up and drop off methods.
What a great faculty and staff! I am so glad that my child is receiving such a good education. TEA recognized for the year 2008-2009. Way to go!
I am so pleased with the progress that this school has made. Crow is now a TEA recognized school and this is a direct result of the dedicated faculty and staff.
The new administration along with a caring faculty and staff has gone from low performing to recognized. What an accomplishment!
This school is great! The teachers are very caring and well trained.
I guess I would have to give this school a low grade due to the administration and the staff. The principal is very rude to children,parents, and teachers. I think that Crow is a good school but you can't get past the rude and cold school long enough to notice. I would like to see Crow prosper but I don't think this is possible until the principal changes. I also think the entire office staff should be replaced. They are ALL so rude to teachers, parents, and children. I applaud the fact AISD has been trying to make changes to help Crow identify with its Hispanic population but I think in the process it has forgotten there are other races too. I hope that the school can get it together.
I would love to see this school succeed! I wish that is was the Crow from years ago. The new Principal came in and things went downhill from there. She allows the teachers to talk on their cell phones during class, to talk and to flirt with each other in the classrooms and in the hallways, she allows the front office staff to be rude to the teachers, parents, and to the children! The children are not treated fairly. My honest wish for this school is for it to get a new Principal and new employees that want to be there. I am sorry to say that there is no way that this school will be successful until this happens.
While the administration and the teachers at this school seem well-qualified and care about the students, because of the changing demographics om the area, the school is experiencing many of the problems associated with Title 1 school. There is little parental involvement and few extra-curricular activities for children. I wish more parents would take a stronger leadership roll and get involved to make a difference in the lives of these children.
It would be so wonderful for all parents, teachers and faculty to unite with arms wide open at all times, to ensure a strong bridge of unity that the children can depend on, while gronwing to ensure strength within themselves. Until the day will come for them to lead a tender hand!
