I really like this school. Bullying is not tolerated. The only reason I did not give it all stars, is because the school buses are usually never on time. The organization of letting out the students is not that great. In my opinion, seperate the bus kids and the children that are pick ups. Parents are there on time and buses being late doesn't help. The sad part is that the buses are literally just next door :(

I am a parent. My son is in ISC going on to fourth grade. I love his teachers. I am proud of the progress my son has made and know that i could not have done it without their help and attention to him. My concerns have always been addressed in a professional manor. Like all parents there have minor inconveniences with just a particular person in the front office staff but i would never doubt the extent of hard work this person does including all staff to keep me informed of what'shappening with my child and maintaining a safe environment. I feel comfortable addressing anyone involved who interacts with my son and personally feel Mrs. Macias and her staff has changed my sons life and mine. :-) :-)yes there ate challenges but i believe its not just up to the teachers but to the parents to be involved. Overall very happy only wish they had more after school activities like sports. Great principal and vice principal and 95 percent of staff.

I am an administrator at Bill Childress Elementary and very happy to be here. I have been with the Canutillo District for seventeen years but only two at this school. The environment here is inviting and calm. The sense of ownwership and pride towards the students is transparent from all staff members from custodians, cafeteria servers, teachers, etc.... Everyone participates in making BCE a safe and productive place for learning. GO EAGLES!!!!!!

My children have been in the school for 2 1/2 years. I think it is one of the better schools in Canutillo. The new Principal is awesome and so good with the children. She is also very good with the parents, unlike some of the office staff (administration). Childress is lacking in parent involvement but I feel this is the fault of the staff. Many of the teachers and staff have their noses in the air. I am not sure why either.

I have one child in the ISC special ed program (2nd grade) and am extremely happy with the progress he has made. My daughter is in a monolingual 3rd grade class and is doing very well. The only prob I have is there are only 2 monolingual classes to chose from in ea. grade level and the english only students seem to be growing fast in number. I am overall happy with this school but could see improvement in the extracurricular activities such as sports and also the parent involvement is low and I feel it is that way because of the attitude of some of the teachers making parents feel as if they are not wanted or needed to help out.

My child has attended Bill Childress elementary for 3 years and I have had nothing but problems with the teachers and the administrative staff. My child has been in the dual language program and the teachers have proved that they just aren't qualified for the job. I have had several talks with the teacher and principal and apparently there has not been any improvements. For example I went to talk to the principal concerning pulling my child out of dual language and instead of addressing me with her opinion she was addressing a friend that accompanied me. I would ask her to please address me and again she ignored. She was to busy defending her staff to be able to listen to my complaints. I have come to the point were I am considering of removing my child not only from Bill Childress but from the entire CISD.

My children have attended Bill Childress since it opened. I feel it is the best school in the Canutillo School District. The Administrators are fantastic and always willing to help you in anything you need and the teachers are the best in the state of Texas and the Unites States.
