Overall the school is great but one of the teacher Mrs .Machum was so rude with my child she passed some remarks and I am surprised that how a teacher bullying a kid.overall principal and vice principal are great.
My kids school is South Euless Elementary. I am sad to say that although we still have some fantastic teachers who show us heart, support, and education - the "excitment feel" is no longer in the school. That comes from the school leadership position. There is no comraderie or team feel any longer. Sad - because this school has had it in the past in bucket fulls. Hats off to the teachers.
We removed our son from this school 2 years ago when we discovered that he didn't grasp the concept of simple addition. We discovered that their idea of teaching math was to draw a picture and tell how you *felt* about your answer. In a meeting with the principal we learned that he considered the school a success because ONLY 68% of his students were in tutoring. He also told me they didn't have enough time to teach the students everything. I found that humorous because the school day is the same length as it was 35 years ago when I was in 2nd grade. Since removing our son from this school he now writes in cursive, has been to math olympics, competed in the regional spelling bee, and completed a 6 week long project (history of texas) just to get the long list started. Sending your child to this school is borderline abuse and you are doing them absolutely no favors. We absolutely think private school is the best way to go but short of that I beg you, please do not send your kids here.
South Euless is an amazing, unusual place. I selected this school for my sons because of the excellent curriculum and loving environment. I have never seen a school where the teachers work so hard to ensure that every student's needs are met. This is a very diverse campus and all of the students/families are extremely respectful of one another. One thing I really liked about this campus was their emphasis placed not only on academics, but also on building exceptional character. If you want to transfer to this school, be prepared because this school is often "full" because so many children are on waiting lists trying to get i! You will love the teachers,,, and they will love your children!
This is by far the best school my children have attended. We moved here from Arlington and even the best school in Arlington isn't as great as South Euless. I love the structure, the anti-bullying methods that teachers use and for the first time ever, my son who is now in 5th grade has scored near perfect on his TAKS exams. I am a Dr. and my husband is an IT Specialist, so education is something we take seriously. I recommend this school, however, there are a few things that I've had concerns with, but my husband and I addressed our concerns. The main thing being assigned seating during lunch time. Students are not allowed to sit with their friends during lunch or their siblings during breakfast, which is upsetting. In addition, they expect students to clean the lunch rooms and wash the tables for them and that is not a child's job! They pay cafeteria personnel for this and should expect them to do their job. Overall, I do like this school academically.
