Teachers should pay more attention to what students do. I have seen kids hit or bother other kids and teachers don't even notice, so they get away with it. Also, teachers change students behavior chart from green or sticker to yellow or orange on the basis of what other students tell them a child has done. This can happen any time of the day, and if it does at the end of the day is even worse if your child has worked so hard the whole day to get a good behavior grade; just to be changed by a teacher on the basis of what other kids say. This is not acceptable and teachers should know their students, but they don't.

Ive been to Sienna Crossing for 6 years ( K-5 ) and ALL my teachers ( Homeroom Switch Janitors Principle FLITe Cafeteria and LAMP) Were nice, now most kids would say whey would be mean... but just b/c they are strict and want to get things done doesn't necessarily mean they are mean. At the end or in the middle, every teacher gives a child a prize or a chance to let them shine. Now all these rude comments or remarks on this school should stop... ok so this school isnt perfect, but no school is. Believe me if it were perfect then it would have everything think of it... perfect is like an opinion its perfect to 1 person but not perfect to you.... get it. ok so stop!

We love Sienna Crossing Elementary because the staff really cares about the children and they encourage parent involvement. For example for the Kindergartener's Zoo Day there was an average of 15 parents for every 17 kids.

Great school! I am very happy with this school. My son has attended there for two years and he has learned so much,more than what I expected. He learned power point last year, he was only in the second grade. He also learned to read and write while he was in kindergarten, he had never attended school before . This school has the best teachers, the principal is very strict, but I think that's the reason the school is one of the best schools around here.

This school is too overcrowded due to the amount of families who moved into the Sienna Plantation subdivision. I forsee this being a problem as families continue to move into the area. This means less individual attention to each child due to large class sizes. It would also be nice if the office staff were more helpful and friendlier.

Teachers are great, but even some of the teachers don't buy into the teaching philosophy. Principal is horrible. No help, hands off, and holds a grudge.
