Im a dedicated parent that is lucky enough to be able to do volunteer work but this year 2013-14 i tried to volunteer and i was always told they had nothing for me to do so for that teacher that said parents are not willing to be involved is a false statement at best! I was also elected to the pta board and we as a pta were not welcome nor wanted on the school campus we were not allowed to do anything to raise money for the PTA and the president was never accessible plus he convinced the staff it was their job to raise money for things they needed 2nd grade went to one field trip which they had gone to in kindergarten. They claimed there was no money to do anything else. Ther luch is fried cheese sticks or cinnamon rolls for breakfast. The choice they have is a yogurt and a bag of chips and a chocolate chip granola bar. It is a snack not a meal! The gifted and talented kids have to do work below their level because the rest of the kids can't even do the basic work in class or even the homework. Go figure. Its a very poor school and they did take out art. Once a month they do art and once a month they do computer lab library time is the best part of this poor excuse of a school.
'Unfortunately, leadership is lacking at this school and the teaching my child received was very uneven. Personal experience with some teaching staff was extremely unprofessional. A small school like this one doesn't afford much choice when teachers aren't meeting your child's need. And the principal is doing very little to weed out those teachers who are just 'biding their time,' while they waste the precious time of the students they are trained professionally to serve and inspire.' Very poor communication between staff and parents. Any issue concerning students is quickly brushed off as a problem with the student. Principal avoids any meetings with parents regarding any issues. Breakfast and lunch times are uncomfortable for the little one they are not been allow finishing their food. The principal does nothing about the kids that are bullying my son.After school program is run by teens without appropriate supervision.
This school is a joke. The principal does nothing about the kids that are bullying my son. She has no clue about her students and is never at campus when I try to reach her. It's time they get a principal in that school that knows what they are actually doing. To make matters worse the assistant principal is worthless too.
Although I have been with this school as for a few years, the quality of teachers, administrators and staff is stellar. The teachers are constantly working to not only better themselves, but most importantly, the educational abilities and lives of the children. It is apparent due to the RECOGNIZED status of the school, this educational facility is on its way up to EXEMPLARY. I have been at several other schools outside NEISD, and this I leave with the parents: Consider yourself fortunate you have this school. The teachers at Camelot are unselfish, caring, dedicated, and have nothing but creating successful students as their goal. Way to go Dr. Canada for amassing a top notch faculty. As well, KUDOS to all the teachers who have dedicated their time (and part of their family time) to ensuring these kids get the best education possible.
This school is a big disappointment. Students are not offered Spanish, art or computer lab. The science teacher is the only teacher willing to work one on one with my son. My son does not feel safe at Camelot and does not feel his teacher protects him. At best, this is a mediocre school, for the un-college bound.
I have found that the teachers and administration at Camelot truely care for the childrens education. They work hard each and everyday to make sure the students at Camelot are being taught in a fun, interesting way. My child has made a great change in her academics as well as her love for school since coming to Camelot this year.
The quality of teachers is high. They work hard and really care. Music, Art and P.E. are all included in the district curriculum which is very well respected. NEISD is well oiled machine. The parental involment is minimal as many homes are two working parents with little etra time to volunteer during a regular school day.
My son was in 2nd grade and my daughter in 1st grade. My daughter had a great experience with her teacher and learned alot. My son who has a diagnosis of PDD had a hard time. He had a wonderful special ed teacher who really cared about him but it was the teachers first year teaching as he worked for his certification. The principal was not very accessible and we had a hard time communicating my son's needs and having them met by his general ed teacher.
