My children have had the best teachers and made wonderful friends while attending a truly diverse school. The administration has been top notch and the school/staff have been awarded many honors including being named one of the Nation's Top 100 Title I schools! It is clear that the expectations are high of all staff members and as a result, also of all students.
This is a fabulous community school that has wonderful faculty and staff. The kids LOVE being at school and it really gives a family feel. The teachers do a fabulous job engaging the students and helping them to succeed!!! This is a great school for sure!!
Wonderful Faculty and Education! When it was time for my daughter to attend kindergarten, my family struggled with the decision of private school vs. public school. My daughter started kindergarten at Elizabeth Scott two plus years ago, and we ve never regretted a moment. The school was built within the last five years, so it has the latest technology and equipment. In addition, it has a seasoned principal with an excellent reputation, so much so that many of the current faculty members followed her to Scott for the opportunity to be part of her staff. All of my daughter s teachers have done a wonderful job challenging her and in areas where she exceled, placing her in separate reading and math groups. The school s staff also energizes the students, exciting and motivating them about learning! Recently the students were challenged to read 1 million minutes. When students reached specific goals, their names were posted for all to see and were personally awarded colored bracelets by the principal and vice principal. Each classroom tracked their minutes, listing the top three readers. The school reached its million minute goal in December. My daughter was so excited!
Unorganized mess! My child attended Eliz Scott for Kind. & 1st grade and I was not pleased wt how little supervision there is for the kids. My son got away from his class & was found alone outside playing unsupervised @ 5 yrs old. He was given silent lunch & left his lunch in the class & sat alone wt no lunch & no one noticed my 6 yr old went all day wtout eating. The school asks for money on a weekly basis for everything you can imagine. Parents are asked to volunteer for everything because they have 0 staff. No background check for parents who volunteer. Unstructured! Unorganized! Unsupervised Mess! Good Luck!
