Staff doesn't know me after 2 years of in and out of that office. Doesn't know my kids names or teachers either.

I have been a part of this school for a very long time. I have watched my step kids go to school here and now my children both attend Corey. I loved this school but I can honestly say that love is dying. Everyone says change is good but I disagree whole heartily. Communication and involvement was so important to Corey at one time but now falls very short. This new change currently in effect is killing our once loved and admired school. I loved seeing the smiles on my children's faces everyday when I pick them up and now it's nothing but frowns and when can we stop coming to this school. The teachers have a bad attitude, the office staff has a bad attitude and the last two principals they have placed at Corey have the worst attitudes of all. I am my children's parent and if something is going on I except to be informed especially if it is involving my children. I guess teachers and staff have forgotten to inform parents of children's wrong doing and feel the can punish as they see fit without parent consent. I can happily say my children will no longer attend Corey after this year is over. This school will be nothing but a statistic in about a year.

Corey Elementary is one of the best kept secrets in Arlington. It is not only a place where students learn at the hands of caring staff/faculty, it is an environment in which children can thrive. Being a teacher this is definitely a place where I would be able to "buy into" the things that happen here for kids. Corey is our Adopt A School Partner and we are in the building often and at different times. It is always upbeat and lots going on for kids to achieve. Not only can they achieve here, they can thrive. We are excited to tell the Corey Story to anyone who will listen. Keep up the amazing work...

My son was moved from burleson ISD to this school. I think this is a great school. All the teachers he has had have been very carrying about there students. They keep in touch. I loved mrs. Thompson she would communicate frequently. The teachers are happy and it shows with the children. He improved on school because his old school the teachers were unhappy and stressed which the pressure showed. I agree live mr. Howell best principal I have met!

My daughter is in the fourth grade at Corey. Though I teach at a private school, I intend to keep her in the AISD schools. We have had nothing but top notch teachers at Corey. The principal, Mr. Howell, is wonderful, engaging, and the kids love him. I can't recommend this school enough.

I feel sorry for any kindergartner who has the unfortunate privilege of encountering Mrs. Harman class. She is mean, bitter and unprofessional. It doesn t seem like she enjoys the children at all anymore. She is tired and needs to just hang up her hat.

Excellent staff. Prek teachers Ms. Williams and Ms. Bowman are the best, my daughter has learned English and improved her social skills in less than a year. I highly recommend this schools for special need kids. Thank you Corey!

From the principal, Steve Howell, to each teacher in each grade level, to the office staff, to our custodial staff, Corey Elementary is a school that puts children first and will do whatever it takes to meet the educational and social needs of our students. Students are respected and in return they learn to respect others. Corey is an outstanding school, not only because of the administration and faculty, but, also, as a result of the involved parents that volunteer their time and resources. Together we are preparing our children to be successful citizens.

This is the best school in Arlington, having had children in this district for over 27 years (oldest is 32) this school actively promotes its students from extra curricular to the team work from all the teachers. Very personable, caring, and considerate to all of the students. The absolute best. FYI they have field day, and field trips, plays, choir, concerts. Step inside of the school, meet the principal, you will see what I mean.

My child loves the school and the teachers and they go out of their way to help. The one thing that is lacking is their events like Field Day and extracurricular activities.

Ever since my s[o]n has started attending this school he is much more focused on his work. Hi[s] teachers are much more positive about his school work and behavior. All I get is positve reports from his teachers rather than negative like I did from his old school.He loves his teachers now he enjoys going to school.

My kids started at Corey. Even though we no longer live in the Corey School District, we transfer our kids each year so they can stay there. The teachers are very personal with each child. You walk in and automatically someone knows who you are and who your kids are. The test scores are great and there is a very strong level of parental support as well. There is no other elementary school I would want my kids to attend. One more year and all 3 of my kids will be Corey Cubs. The principal, vice principal and all of the teachers have my support.

My two children attended Corey for 7 years. They are very strong in nurturing social development and self-esteem. They were very creative and made learning fun through projects and enrichment activities. My children have great memories of Corey.

I think this happens to be one of the best schools in the DFW area. It's well renown for it's excelency and quality of education, and life over all. It's always clean and very well maintained. Students are laxed and always seem to enjoy themselves. My daughter loves school and really enjoys it there. The teachers seem to also really try to work with the Students. The classrooms are also not over jamed with high student to children ratios.

Corey Elementary is one of the best schools in Arlington. As a parent of a third grader, I am excited that next year I will have another child attending Corey as a Kindergartener. The teachers are very professional and knowledgeable. They are always ready if you have a question about your child's progress or if your child needs individual attention. I am extremely happy with the entire faculty and staff at Corey . Shay Ballinger

My daughter attended Corey (High Schooler now) and my son is currently a student of Corey Elementary. The feeling you get when you enter Corey Elementary is one of friendliness and professionalism. Being a very active PTA board member and volunteer I have interacted with many teachers, office staff, and the children. It is obvious that our children are receiving respect, wonderful social skills, and an education that will ensure success in their futures. We are blessed to be included in the Corey family.

As the mother of a 2nd grader and a kindergardener, I have some experience with the teachers and staff at Corey. The best kindergarden teacher they have at Corey (Mrs. Laura Doss) will be teaching at another AISD school next year. The parents of the kids in her current class are campaigning to have her remain at Corey. She is an excellent teacher, very enthusiastic and warm. She makes the kids want to come to school each day.
