Great school! The staff works well with parents and students. Toler also has a lot of great parent training.
I loved this school! im now going to 6th grade and will miss fourth and fifth. if your child is going to attend 3rd watch out for mrs.tallant, she is very disrespectful.
Toler school is very good for Pre K, my son is attending this yr, Ms Harris my son's teacher updates everything what's going in the class every week.My son loves his school and his teachers:0)
uncaring teachers it is wrong how these kids are treated and how they are bulling each other it is so sad poor job at this school plez dont bring your kiids here your asking for trouble god bless.
My son attended Toler and he had some great teachers and then there was one that didn't care.
Toler is a great school. My daughter just completed the 5th grade and I think they could have a least had a graduation and maybe a 5th grade trip like Shugart. They should have some type of award ceremony for the children. Hopefully with a new principal next year things will be better.
This school just exists in my view. They do not have programs for the parents/grandparents to come see - a proud child for making A or A/B honor roll, a child who worked hard to have perfect attendance - nothing. No carnivals, no open house during the year to stop by and talk to teachers and see your child's work. Everything just gets sent home in the back pack, like it's no big deal. It is a big deal and I think parents might get more involved if we felt more welcomed and invited to become involved. Paying $5 to go have a hot dog with the PTA or sending home many fundraisers, isn't what I call creative parent teacher involvement. The children need to know what they work hard to achieve is acknowledged and special.
My son, who has always received A's on his report card, started acting very different once he started at Toler. Grades went lower, he was not a happy kiddo anymore and his self esteme went down the tubes. Once I started checking into the school, I found out that the teachers really do not care about the kids. His first teacher used to tell the kids she was quitting because of them. She even had them do an essay on why she shouldn't quit. A bully was a huge problem. He picked on other kids because most kids did not like him. The teachers did not care. The principal did get involved and was wonderful. She knew my son never got into trouble and knew about the other kid, so she watched very close. The teachers just do not seem to care.
My daughter attended Toler last year and did very well. Her teachers were great and always communicated.
Both my kids have attended Toler with one now in collage the other still in Toler. I feel safe sending my kids there the teachers and pricipal is great. The only problem I have is when it's raining the kids are all under the cover with uniforms on and it's very hard to found your kids. Other than that I would con't sending my child to that school unless we move.
I have been involved with Toler for many yrs. I have put 3 children through Toler and have one more to go. I have been on the PTA brd. many times and have seen and heard different sides to many different issues from teacher conflicts, the partys, the PTA board, to this dress code, to many other petty compliants. I personally support the code and the staff at Toler, your votes weren't 'thrown out' everyone attending our schools were given the choice. In a year or two, every GISD elementary and middle school campus will be wearing the standardized dress. It's much more ecomonical, especially if you have more then one child. The only problem I have is, that if the children abide by the rules, the same rules should apply to the teachers. They are the best examples for them, they see them more waking hours a day than some parents do.
I support the standardize dress code. A school is a place of order, where you learn. There should be no dress competition in a school. It puts all the students in the same level plain field. Also it improves the moral of the school Personally, I voted for the dress code. Two of my children go to Toler. It is a good school.
I like the school so far but hate the dress code. If it wasn't so close to my house I would have sent my son somewhere else. There was a vote last year on the 'standardized dress' and I have yet to meet a parent that voted yes on it but somehow it got passed anyways. I loved my son's teacher and he loved going to school plus he learned a lot and the worst thing I can say is I think that they threw out our votes and decided to do it anyways.
