I have two children that have been attending since 2009...around 5 years now. I am highly disappointed in this school and how teachers respond to the children. I have seen on a few occasions where the teachers speak condescendingly to the children. We have had issues with a bully problem and talking with the counselor has proved to be fruitless. I am actively seeking to put my children in a new school because the response to the children is not a nurturing environment for my children to grow socially...academically the teachers and Principal show great consideration for teaching to the STARR test and not much time on developing socially...its too bad that everything is based on those test scores.
I'm a new Thompson parent. I am not impressed! Younger kids are mixed with older kids. Kinder kids are expected to migrate around the school alone from day 2. Any incidents/accident are not reported to parents. It's been 3+ weeks and the only homework my child has received was a coloring sheet. She does very little class work. Bringing your concerns to administrators is very frustrating. I've tried a couple of times only to have my concerns dismissed (this is the way we do things), insulted (your child is a liar) or be spoken to like a child (you can t talk to other parents about issues). I'll politely say the office staff is rude and leave it there, since such behavior is supported and demonstrated by the principal. It seems there are many parents who don't care. Somewhere along the way that became the norm and facility stopped caring too. I want to believe my issues are just Thompson and not all CFBISD schools. So, I am simply awaiting the transfer period. If I am wrong, private school here we come.
I have only been a parent of achild at Thompson for 2 yeras...but I have to say I love this school.
We not only chose Thompson Elementary because of the Two-Way Dual Language pro-gram, but because how welcome the staff and teachers always makes us feel. In the pastyear my daughter has improved academically, as well as developed strong friendships amongst her classmates. I am thankful for this strong foundation that will carry with her for the rest of her life.
My daughter has been in Thompson since 3rd grade. We moved here from Wyoming, where the schools were outstanding, and now she is falling further and further behind. We are trying to move to a better school district and since she is so far behind in all subjects we will have a lot of catching up to do. The teachers are wonderful but when trying to help the children the support staff, principal & school board, tells them they are not allowed to assist in that matter. Phone calls are not returned when questioning the reason for the push-aside. And the amount of children in this school that cannot speak English is overwhelming. Please take careful consideration if you are looking at this school.
Thompson is great school considering the poplutation. The teachers are up againist serious obsticals. These include lack of parental support, hunger, and rampant literacy. We are looking to move to Frisco as soon as possible.
So far I am very dissatisfied with the school. My child is in K. I have seen below minimal homework come home, a friend in the Allen school district says there is something everyday. The PTA just got a president, and just had its first meeting in Nov. I called several times to find out why we hadn't had a meeting and not one person told me that there was no president. My husband and I signed up for in class volunteering and have yet to be called. I have tried numerous times to get in contact with teachers/principal and never got any response back. I chose this school for its academic scores and I am very disappointed with my decision.
Great school, good teachers and principal who really cares about the kids. My son went there for grades K thru 5th and never had a problem that was not resolved or attended to quickly.
We moved out of of the cfbisd district because of our disappointment with the school. I found that once we were in a new district our children were severely behind in math. The curriculum at Thompson was behind in the math dept. Must be a district wide 'issue' not just Thompson.
My girls have been going to Thompson for 2 years now. My husband and I love this school. You couldnt ask for better teachers or principals. We feel welcome anytime we need to visit the school and if there is a concern it is addressed quickly and efficiently. I would highly recomend this June R. Thompson to any parent interested in attending.
Thompson really is the quintessential 'neighborhood school.' Great teachers and wonderful kids.
We are very pleased with the education our children have received. The teachers are very caring and professional.
Thompson is a big disappointment. [I think that] The principal appears to listen to your concerns but has his own agenda. The teachers over all are very good. There are few who have been there for years and truly love the school. The parental involvement is very low. The once strong PTA who provided many activities over the years has dwindled. I would not recommend this school if you have a choice in this district.
Thompson has a diverse student/family population and a caring faculty and staff. Some of the teachers have been with Thompsons for many years. The PTA is very active in day-to-day and extracurricular activities and has an involved volunteer community.
