My oldest, who graduates this year, attended this school as did my youngest. I had one kid on each end of the special ed spectrum- one in GT and one with an IEP who needed PT, OT, SLP, social skills training and some accommodations. Both of my children got excellent services here. Both still remember their elementary school teachers fondly. The teachers are wonderful and dedicated to their kids. Remember, an active parent contributes to a child's success, so be an active parent- volunteer, have lunch with your children, read to them, and participate. This school will fulfill its role in your child's education very well, but no school can do it alone.

CLCE is an amazing school. My child has been happy, academically challenged and engaged for the 6 years he has been been there. The teachers are amazing, the staff is exceptional and the principals/counselors are there when you need them. Most parents take an active role in the school and are eager to help. I recommend this school and this school district to everyone I know. Kids are truly loved, valued and respected here.

Do your research before sending your child here. Many people are happy with it. All my close friends send their kids to private school instead. Now wish I had.

I have two children in this school , they are in preK and kindergarten. It has been one week and while my kids love going to school I find that school falls well below par. The organisation of pick up and drop is terrible, you will be yelled at if you dare to bike in to pick up your child, the car pick up only works if you want to queue for 30 min + to the pick up point. The school has too many very rigid rules, for example the student is not allowed to go to the toilet outside of arranged toilet time, we are talking 5yo here!. The class walks in line to the toilet, the students are not allowed to go to the bin in the cafeteria so my boy brought home sandwich he has dropped!! They are not allowed to eat during morning break so my kindergartener goes with no food from 7 until 11/12 when they have lunch. I will be complaining about these rules, I see no respect shown by the school for the kids. Having said that the program for kindergarten seems to be well designed and interactive and my boy adores his teacher! My girl love going to preK, they sing, play game, build Lego and walk in line a lot. I'm not at all happy about this school and will be looking to switch at the soonest.

I am not impressed by the teachers, principle and vice principle of this school. While some of the administrators are friendly, for the most part most of them are not and are racists. I do not know how they have a rating of 8; some of the teachers are not qualified.

The school has a high student turnover throughout the year, making it difficult for the teachers to maintain a high level of knowledge among students. One teacher we had at first refused to provide extra challenge for stronger students and/or test them on the level above the one that CCISD specifies for this age group. Some teachers are better than others. PE is boring, just running and hardly any games. I think the worst was when the school offered to pretest incoming kindergarten students and then mixed the stronger ones with the weak to avoid only "strong" or only "weak" classrooms. To be fair, they have an excellent librarian and a very kind nurse, but it was not enough for us to stay.

I'm giving this school four stars because the teachers and librarian are wonderful. Unfortunately, I have found the rest of the staff to be cold and unfriendly, leaving me, a former teacher and a parent who likes to be involved, feeling unwelcome. Even when you call, whoever answers always sounds like they are annoyed by the interruption. The school definitely needs a friendlier and more professional staff. We used to go to another school in the district and it was warm and welcoming. I'm saddened by the 'personality' of Clear Lake City Elementary.

My son has been going to CLCE for the last 5 yrs and I truly believe that the school, tthe staff, the teachers and even the principle and vice principle are the best in our city. They're caring, kind and very understanding. My son absolutely loves it there! Thank you CLCE for helping my son love school ;D

My son has been at this school for two in a half years. I really liked each of his teachers, they went far and above the call of duty.

The new administration in this school is wonderful. They are well versed in the most current curriculum standards, but are also first and foremost, advocates for the children. Every child has an equal chance to learn here and the teaching staff is great. Test scores are NOT the focus of the school year, however, the scores are outstanding. Fabulous school!

Test scores are good, but the leadership skills of the administration and teachers are lacking at the school. The district to do a lot to improve this school if they could inject a little more positive outlook into the staff they hire.

I am unimpressed by the teachers and administrators at this school. I grew up being taught by teachers, not just having standerdized testing shoved down my neck. I think they should worry more about preparing the students for the future and quit worring so much about test scores.

Parent involvement is a huge key in any school and CLCE has great parent support. The school is able to do so much for the kids because the parents are there to lend their time. Kids definitely come first here.

I appreciate the PTA support for this school although I do wish they would consider changing the dad and mom events to a name that would include every student and not just the ones from two parent homes. I like the teachers of the special programs - big help in helping a child with reading problems.

Supposed to be a good school. A lot of people think because it's the oldest school in the district that it's not as good as the brand new one down the street. The test score speak for themselves.

My children have attended this school for three years. The school is in a safe residential neighborhood. The administrative staff is helpful and well organized. Parents are strongly encouraged to volunteer either through the school's active PTA, or directly by assisting in the library, school store, school carnivals, or occasionally in the classroom. Students bring home classwork and homework regularly, so it is fairly easy to track their progress. Teachers are very clear about what the academic objectives are for each student. The only weakness of this school is that several parents I know have complained that the school has been very slow to address the needs of learning disabled students and that the waiting time for testing and assesment of these students can be months.
