Coral Cliffs School3

My child has attended for two years. My main concern is that the school does not seem to want to be bothered by minor discipline or conflict resolution. I have been threatened of suspension because my child was talking during class (three warnings in 30 days). While I realize my child should follow the rules, seriously suspension for small talk?? The school has called repeatedly asking what should they do and even calling to tell me your child wants to come home . I would think they should be equipped to handle and diffuse the situation, possibly redirect the child s attention positively. Seems it s just easier to call the parent for advice. Perhaps offing a more challenging curriculum to students that require it, rather than just placing to many students into the mold of a predetermined curriculum.
My child is attending his third year at this school. He is my first child to attend school, so I didn't know what to expect. I have loved everything about this school. The new principal is caring. The extra activities are awesome. The office staff is the best. The teachers have surpassed my exceptions. My child loves going to school. Also, as a business owner I donated prizes for a school event. Before, I got home from helping I had a message from the principal thanking me. She went the extra mile.
I'm a local custom home builder who has two daughters attending this school. My several experiences at school events have been very positive. My spouse is serving on the PTA as together with another neighborhood mom. Four moms in our neighborhood share responsibility for carting the kids to school. The people (school staff and other parents) are all friendly and helpful. This is a Great place to raise children. Parent and Resident - St. George, UT.
I have two children in school and one entering next year. The third grade teacher that my son had was one of the best teachers that we have had. She is very structured in all that she does and expects the children to do their best. The little extras like Knights of the math table, and poetry program were outstanding and my child was eager to learn. The coyote crooners choir was an awsome experience for my child, A big nod of approval for the choir and both of the leaders. I am glad to have my kids in this school.
I have been impressed by my child's teacher. I knows she really cares about her students and loves teaching. I have only met with the prinicpal one time, she was friendly but didn't solve my problem. My only compliant would be the lack of supervision before school, at recess and other non-academic times(this does not reflect on the teacher more on the aides). I also have not been impressed with the busing but that has nothing to do with the school, it is a district issue and could happen at any school. Overall I am happy with my child's teacher and education at Coral Cliffs.
I find coral cliffs to be one of the best elemetary schools in the district. It is well run by a capable administrative staff and has some of the most caring teachers in the district. Furthermore parent involvement is extremely high leading to a positive and community minded environment. All these factors have led to increased test scores and high morale. Whether judging the school on subjective or objective criteria, Coral Cliffs turns out to be one of - if not the - best elemetaries in the district.
I have found the teachers, staff and principal at Coral Cliffs to be extraordinary. I believe the negative comments posted on this site were isolated incidents and possibly posted by the same person. I find it hard to believe that anyone with a genuine concern was dismissed by either the teachers or staff. I have found the principal to be a kind and compassionate individual whose main concern is the welfare of our children.
