Terrible! If you have a highly gifted-bright child or a child who needs special attention or care, your child is attending a wrong school. The teachers are very nice to average teacher-pleasure kids, but most teachers don't even try to help the kids with their struggles or weaknesses, when they already labeled these kids as problems in their classes. In my experiences, the teachers easily criticize and pass judgement rather than encourage and try to teach 'the trouble makers' to the right point. They minimize students' potentials and strengths, especially students' creativity and imagination. They never listen to the parents whose children have been already marked as troubles. Einstein said that 'imagination' is better than 'learning', but the teachers in this school keep children from imagining or being creative. Smart children suffer from working on too easy worksheets over and over again, and get scolded for getting bored and trying to entertain themselves. Their needs are never met, and just wasting time in this school. I know that most public school have the same problem, but I have three different elementary school experiences, and this Comanche Springs are the worst.
Staff has high expectations for themselves and students! CSE is definitely preparing students for success.
This school has been terrific (AND EXPLEMPLARY- its rating!). My son has attended since it opened and has just had to leave to attend middle school and I am sooo sad about that! We have had a wonderful experience and absolute excellent teachers (zero communication problems... don't get that!) Great school!
I'm concerned with the recent reviews that have been left. I've read past reviews and I know I saw a few negative remarks and now they have dissapeared. Our experience with the school is much different then what has been said. The lack of communication in this school leaves a lot of room for improvement. I have asked for attention in certain areas and they haven't listened. Not to mention there are a few other people in the school that have problems and have asked for attention and not one has been taken care of. there are some good points to this school but right now I can't think of any. Good thing my child is almost finished with this school.
I love this school.....My Daughter is in Kindergarten at Comanche and she loves it, the teachers are great, the staff is great. I don t have one complaint about this school. They really care about the students. My daughter has changed so much this year she has matured and improved so much since starting at Comanche.
We transferred our son from Eagle Mountain Elementary and have been wowed by the amazing difference. From the principal down everyone has been very committed to the kids, making very personal efforts to give them the tools they need for success. Our son was not flourishing in the "mainstream" approach of the other school, but has made a dramatic improvement in his performance with just a little extra attention he wasn't getting before. The Resource teacher is to be applauded, so sorry to see her leave, but I have high hopes that the excellent standards in place will mean her successor will be as strong and caring. The communciation from the all the school staff has also been very helpful. This is a wonderful school with great stafff.
Our neighborhood was rezoned to Comanche Springs from High Country 2 yrs ago. Our neighborhood went crazy & many put up a fight to stay. HC was overcrowded, the principal is not warm, & classes are overcrowded. Although we were afraid of the unknown, we went to Comanche Springs with a positive attitude. We just ended our second year at CS and we love everything about it. Our principal is WONDERFUL; the teachers are sweet, energetic, and creative. The parents and PTA work really well together UNLIKE HC where there was arguing and disorganization. Even the carpool line at CS is great. The class sizes are smaller at CS which probably won't last long but I am happy while it lasts. I didn't hate HC but I do believe things work out for the best as long as you have a positive attitude. Go Spurs!
Comanche Springs is great school!! PTA is out of this world! Teachers and staff are work very well together.
