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!
My son is a special need child at Corey. This school has been a God send for me. Mrs. Martin is a wonderful teacher. My son wanted no part of school until she came into his life. Not to mention what she has done for him education wise he doing great. Thank you Corey Elm and staff.
Corey Elementary is in the best district in the city. They have the best teachers and staff around. They have helped mold my daughter into a wonderful young lady. I couldn't ask for a better school.
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.
My duaghter who is in 4th grade, love's corey! THey have wonderful staff! They always have wonderful things planned. My daughter was at annother school, Duff elm. and she like the school. She went from c's and d's to all a's! Corey is really a great school for all children.
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.
We just moved here from California. Corey elementary is an exceptional school. The parents are very involved and they have plenty of activities for the children.
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.

I love Corey !!! 3 of my kids graduted from there I have 1 more child there and my grandkids are now attending there. Corey has the best teachers. The kids get the highest education there also the special help they get is excellent!!! I'm so blessed to have and good school with good teachers .
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.
Great drama club. Good school for kids who are struggling and need special tutoring.
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.
