This review is based on lady at front desk (Christina i think her name is)@ mcdermott elementary school,first of all I went there with my son ask her few questions regarding this school,l saw lady have no shoes on at front desk came to me seriously she was bare feet that was big impact on school first thing i saw and I just moved down here from different state instead of let me ask few questions she just keep giving me paperwork fill them up at home and bring them back and keep interrupting me when i am trying to ask her few questions regarding school and without answering my questions she totally ignored and start answering phone on other side of desk without saying excuse her,was extremely rude , she should know this better she should take one person at a time to answer not multiple people waiting on her and she is just ignoring everyone and keep moving on, her behavior shows bad reputation for school and not sure why someone can be so rude when whole school responsibility on her while school is close for session. looking at her no one will like to deal with person everyday like that ,this school have good rating only reason i went there but looking at lady's behavior seems like 'third class' school where faculty don't care as far as they are getting paid ,only reason have to do this review is to school know about there staff and little attention might help them not to drop there rating due to her misbehave and she might under estimate people with there appearance !!hope this review help school and parents . Thankyou
This is great school with dedicated teachers. My son had been in the school for the last two years and he throughly enjoyed being there. The teachers take individual care of each student and their needs
This is the worst school I've had the misfortune to deal with. From the first day of registration, I've had nothing but headaches. The administration is terrible. Every time I've had to go to the office to drop off lunch for my children or just to sign in to have lunch with them, it has never gone smoothly. The ladies that work at the front office are incompetent and I don't know how they've managed to get their job. We recently moved from another state and my daughter would never want to miss school, even when she was sick. When I would try to keep her from going to school because she has a cold, she would say "I don't want to miss school mommy, because I like going to school." Ever since I've enrolled her into this school, she never wants to go to school. I've gone in and said something to them, yet I haven't gotten one call back or response from them. There have been time, I've dropped lunch off for my child before she's to have lunch yet she doesn't get it until lunch comes to an end for her. I used to work with school aged children and would have to go to a lot of different schools; by far this has got to be the worst school I've ever come across.
My grandson attends McDermott Elementary, and I have high praise for the teachers that work there and the Administrative staff...Last year was his first year of Kindergarten, and he was praised, encouraged to listen and offer his thoughts on the subjects being studied...And Kudos to his teacher, Mrs. Angela Palomarez...She has an excellent relationship with her students....She cares......
My son attends this school and has for the past 4 yrs. He loves his school. They have wonderful activities for parents to attend. Our favorite is family fun night which is right before Halloween. Our entire family attends including my parents.
This is our first year with a student in Mrs Northrup's Pre-K class and a student in Ms Garza's Kinder class. We are so excited to have our children attend such a 'child oriented' school. Mrs. Northrup is outstanding and keeps the children interested. Our preK can hardly wait to go to school and literally jumps out of bed saying yippee, it's a school day. Thank you Ms Northrup. Ms Garza also keeps the kids challenged and focuses on parental cooperation with supportive practice work to be done at home reinforcing work done in class each day. All the office staff and other teachers seem to be 'on the same Page' with the children the focus. Thank you staff of Robert McDermott Elementary, for caring for our children and providing an instructive and learning environment filled with love.
The staff seems very involved with the students. If the Teacher can't take care of an issue, then the School Councelor is alerted (and the councelor moves with the scolastic year of students..... ie: the 4th grade councilor moves with the kids and is the 5th grade councelor the following year. If that isn't satisfactory, the Vice Principal tries to rectify the situation. In all, the whole staff works well together.
This is a wonderful school! My son was not challenged at his 1st 2 schools. Since arriving at McDermott he is an honor roll student. The teachers are involved and care about our children. The nurse is the most qualified school nurse I have ever known. Awesome job keep up the good work!
