The best principal ever! She is calm and down to business without stress on her teachers or students. Test time comes and the children do not even know they are being tested. ..... they just shine without stress! Small town feel is here and parent involvement is awesome! !
My child loves school thanks to all the teachers that my child has had at Knowles. I also think it is great that Knowles has many ways that students can receive positive recognition. My child loves to hear his birthday announced for his birthday and for receiving a positive office referral. It's great that students can now know their principal for positive reasons. My child also gets to do team building and guidance activities, and learn Spanish and sign language now that they are doing additional special classes. Way to go Knowles faculty, staff and administration!
My kids transferred from a different school this year and were welcomed with positive energy in all aspects. The atmosphere around the school is positive and friendly. The teachers excel in communication with me and with my children in their expectations of their classrooms. The classwork my boys bring home is challenging and exciting for them. They both love being a Knowles Wrangler!
Positive: Fantastic librarian and bilingual education programs. Negative: Real lack of student discipline procedures, and school wide leadership. Everyone seems to do their own thing without coordination. The daily (that's right- DAILY) morning assemblies are a real waste of time. Rotating students between multiple teachers beginning at 2nd grade,....beware.
