My son had a wonderful kinder year and unfortunately that teach did not stay past that year, (She was too good for Camelot).Now, In 1st grade his awesome teacher has left after only 10 weeks :(... The office staff is rude and completely unknowlegable , rules change every few weeks They can not keep track of where the children are- 30 mins to p/u last friday! ReaLLY? I could tell them where he was! (they can't keep a decent knowledgeable employee in my experience). I've NEVER had a positive interaction with the most current staff. I feel so bad that my son has to there day after day- He has become quite distant in the last few weeks, CONSTANTLY LOOKING CONCERNED AND UNWILLING TO TALK ABOUT IT! That is NOT HIM AT ALL!- I can only think this has to do with with his new teacher and losing one he adored so quickly. Just last week He was been beat up on the bus with no repercussions for the child who hit, slapped, and choked him. I am moving OUT OF SA ASAP! I am only looking at schools that get an 8,9, or10... He deserves this! Before he started kinder I read the review and went to the school to ask the Principle why a 3? her response was because of the low income federal funding and behavioral problems... NOT what I want him to learn or grow up around. SO DISAPPOINTED in this school!!! OUR CHILDREN DESERVE BETTER!
'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.
