I have three children in CES, we have been in this school for 4 years and we love our school. To address the low marks below: My oldest was prone to throat infections, missed 15 days in one year, and we turned in doctors excuses. We received a warning letter from the STATE OF TEXAS. I took it to school & was told that she was maintaining schoolwork, so it was not a problem. My youngest was adopted from Guatemala, and started speech at CES when 3 yrs old. We loved working with Mrs. Sweat. By the end of kindergarten he had overcame all of his issues and completed his speech program. She also worked with my daughter on normal speech issues. There are age appropriate speech development standards (th, r, etc and when children should master them), and when my daughter reached 2nd grade they added speech for the year, and mastered her issue before school was out. A very active PTA buys library books, iPads, etc and sponsor teacher education and student activities. The school uses the Rachel's Challenge bullying program and the kids REALLY love it, and are bully conscientious. No school or it's students and teachers will every be perfect, but this really is a great school.

We have just relocated to the area from New York and our major concern was finding the right elementary school for our daughters. We feel so lucky to have chosen CES. We have 2 children, 10 and 7 years old. Our 10 year old has special needs. Therefore, it was very important to find the right place for all of her needs. Everyone at CES has gone out of their way to make us feel at home and of course provide the most excellent services, therapy and education for both daughters. They love it and the transition mid-year has been one of the best experiences. The principal and vice principal are the most dedicated administrators I have ever encountered. They truly care and involved in every aspect of the school. The teachers are exceptional, especially the Special Needs Staff. We absolutely love it and look forward to many years of education at CES.

I have 2 children at CES. I've had pretty good experiences at this school. The teachers are fantastic (Mrs. Maddox, Mrs. Grant) and the leadership at the school (Mrs. Richland the principal, Mrs. Farager the v-principal) are truly fantastic. I was there one day when there was a tornado headed our way and their level heads, calm demeanor and preparedness made me feel like my kids were in good hands. The teachers care and if anything, they're held back by some of the lack of funds and Texas state rules around public education. To the parents complaining about getting in trouble for their kids being tardy - get them there on time. When you're late - you're a distraction to to others. My kids missed more than 3 days last year due to sickness and we didn't get in trouble for that. You just have to provide a doctors note. GREAT school. GREAT teachers. Execellent community. Very happy with CES.

I totally agree with needing help with speech therapy. We were told the Same to us about our son. The absence policy is a joke. Kids come to school sick and make others sick because parents are afraid they'll get a notice and have to send kids to Saturday school, formissing 3 days for the year. That policy is from gcisd !!The curriculum is poor, discipline is awful. Went to private and son is thriving in all areas.

My younger son has speech difficulties. When I requested speech therapy services, my son and I were treated with both horrifiying intimidation tactics and infuriating disrespect. Inappropriate "eligibility labels" were forced upon us and my input in the ARD/IEP process was ignored. I have my child in private school where he isnow thriving. BTW, my older child is enrolled in CES and we were sent to truancy court last school year for having 3 absences and 7 tardies. I consider that harrassment. Shame on CES.

My daughters teacher is Mrs Maddox. She is absolutely wonderful. I could not have pick a better teacher for my child. I do wish that Colleyville elementary offered more activities after school for the children like sports or something like that. They don't offer anything for the kindergartners. I would love it if they had like a soccer team, softball team or something like that. Loretta Ross the principal is great. She's very approachable and easy to talk to. Loretta seems very concerned about the children and just does a fabulous job. I'm so glad my child goes to Colleyville elementary.

We've had a great experience so far with Colleyville Elem. Our son has complete K and 1st and will be attending 2nd. The teachers and curriculum are excellent and challenging. Our son actually enjoys going to school. It is a little disappointing that Spanish and Music are only offered in rotating quarters.

Outstanding elementary school program. Very caring faculty and staff. Very strong parental involvement. Wide socio-economic range. Strong gifted and talented program, but within the district, being in 'GT' is almost an elite status in terms of the way parents feel about it. We have never had a teacher in the school that wasn't top notch. We have known the principal for a number of years and don't think there's a finer principal around. Ms. Ross loves and cares for each child as an individual. The facility is old and very crowded. In fact, it's one of the most crowded elementary schools in the district. However, the students and faculty make up for the facility.

This is by far the best elementary school that my children have attended. The teachers are superb! They are devoted to all their children. They share their knowledge with our children with compassion and authority. They are kind when needed and can handle any situation that requires a steady hand graciously. I can not say enough great things about them. *A special thanks to Mrs. Maddox, Mrs. Sletten, Mrs. Weber, Mrs. Seifried (you all rock). What makes this a great place for our children. The principal Loretta Ross. She sets the tone for everyone to follow. She is caring, giving, knowledgeable and most of all loving. She gives these attributes to all of the children here. She knows everyone by name. Colleyville Elementry School is 'The Best Place to Be.'
