My child has been going there for three years and will be starting her fourth year there. We have never had any problems and when we transferred there three years ago and got the help my child needed. As far as staff is comcerned the only problem I have had is with the attendance lady. She is rude and unfriendly when you do actually talk to her. I have also heard this from other parents. I wouldn't put my child in another school district.
Three of my children went here for 6 years. The school has gone downhill and fast. They got a new Principal a couple of years ago and the good teachers and counselor left that next summer. I agree with the previous comment about ISS. My child was in ISS most of the time, just because he felt safer! Everyone knew and didn't care to do anything about it. Don't even bother talking to the staff. They simply don't care. The police are a constant fixture as well. The environment promotes a feeling of Hostility not only with the student but with the parents. We move out of the district a little over a year ago and I can say it is the best thing we ever did. No more fear! No more a prisoner. Success is not mayde at the creek!
My children have always loved Mayde Creek. we did go through some big changes when we changed Prinipals, but the students have adjusted and doing well. Each grade level has Field Trips which the children really enjoy. The Teachers are friendly and very concerned over each child. My children feel like they are not only students but extended family. Great volunteers that have been there for years and school encourages parental involvement which is a huge plus. Katy ISD has some great schools!
My child has gone there for half a year we had to change school's because of the behavior problems. Children were in ISS and Detenion everyday. They got the whole class in trouble. Children were back talking to the teachers, getting in fights, and bringing weapons to school.The principal is not very involved.There are barley any extra circulars. I would never go back to this school. I do not reccomend you to send your child to this school.
School is not receptive to moving a child up from 1st grade because of late birthday even though 1st grade was completed at a private school. Very difficult to deal with.
The teachers are knowledgeable, helpful, and friendly. The music, art, and PE programs are very good. The school has a positive atmosphere. Some parents are more involved than others, but the school encourages parent involvement.I'm glad my child attends this school.
I have had children attending Mayde Creek Elementary for the past nine years. Overall I would rate the school as good. Over the years my children have thrived from the education they have received thus far--all four are doing very well academically. If my children were placed in the room of a teacher that I wasn't satisfied with, the counselors and asst. principals have always been helpful and accomodating of my requests to change them to one that I and my child were happy with. I have volunteered in some capacity for many years and I know that the school has many excellent volunteers. I have never experienced the 'clique' mentioned in another review among veteran volunteers. Safety is a concern of mine at this school as they are very strict about monitoring the front door, but do little to patrol or protect the back entries.
My child has attended Mayde Creek since kindergarten and she is now in the 4th grade. I feel that the school on a whole is an 'ok' school. The faculty is a bit controlling and strict and i dont feel they listen alot to what the children need or want. They have decent music and art programs and seem to be somewhat willing to work with children that have special needs to an extent. I do not feel that all of the teachers are attentive at all though and the children suffer as a result. Its difficult to find a 'good' teacher that is compassionate, helpful and attentive. There used to be alot more parent involvement mostly because now there is a large clique within most longstanding volunteers.
Both of our daughters attend MCE and our two sons will be attending MCE soon.We are very pleased with the principals, teachers and entire staff and it is obvious that the children come first. I volunteer at the store on a weekly basis and can honestly say that I am proud my children attend MCE. It is the best school in Katy and the children learn so much from the excellant teachers, there is always something exciting and educational happening and the students are involved 100% because of the great teaching methods that Mrs. Attaway encourages at the school.
