Not impressed at all! There are very FEW friendly teachers.. it seems as though they all woke up on the wrong side EVERY day. I have no problem whatsoever with Spanish-speaking students, obviously it's imperative for them to learn English and expand their communication skills. However, I was seriously bothered by numerous times witnessing my daughter's teacher giving instructions in the hall/event/activity, etc and the Spanish teacher translating over my daughter's teacher, at the same time. Nobody could hear instructions, and we all were lost! The communication is HORRIBLE. It doesn't seem organized to send notes home announcing student participation in certain after-school events or notes saying 'wear a particular outfit' the day before! I can't tell you how many times this has happened, causing my daughter to miss out because we had NO idea until the last second. This school needs a MAJOR overhaul. I will absolutely be fighting for my daughter to be moved to a different school next year. This school is rated Unsatisfactory and it is pretty apparent why! Get yourself an extra cup of coffee in the morning and learn some skills from Coleman Elem.!
Has a good student to teacher ratio.The teachers do not communicate well with the parents. They have a few bad teachers there that are lazy, like my sons first grade teacher said she didn't have time to give the students homework and all the work my son brought home was never graded. The school could seriously use some remodeling and updating.
I love this school. My daughter has gone here since she has turned 3yrs old for early intervention and I've nothing but good things to say about them. They take real good care of my little one and I've seen them take nothing but outstanding care of the other children also. They try to get any and all parents possible involved in the activities and the daily routines. My daughter loves this school and doesn't ever want to leave it. I hope the principle, secrataries, teachers, aids, nurse and everyone else that works at the school continues to do a great job. They know my daughter by name and site and say hi to her as soon as they see her even out of school. I see personal relationships between the staff and students doing nothing but growing stronger everyday.
POOR, POOR, POOR- awful principal who cares nothing about the children only her career goal. No responsibility accepted. New teachers teaching first year students where they learn so much- they don't have the skills yet, at least in our experience, to teach at this precious stage. School is old, children are taken outside in the weather to use restrooms, (have to leave class & go outside to get to lunch, bathroom, gym, etc.), and very disorganized systems of drop off and pick up. Teachers do not communicate well with parents. Be prepared for sick children during colder months due to outside weather conditions & children being brought from a heated classroom to the lunch room or rest room without a coat.
