2014, New principal at Check Elementary. Two grades condensed, over filled classrooms. This school has a few fabulous teachers. There and assistants...who should be taking these overflowing condensed classrooms and teaching them! A main reason Americans are continuously dropping in Universal statistics, along with useless knowledge and less practical applications and dumbed down field trips. What has happened to America? If anything changes with our, the voice of parents, I will update.

Floyd Elementary is a very good school. The reading program and speech program are exceptional. My Fifth Grader has three absolutely wonderful teachers who make his learning a pleasant, fun experience. True, the building is old (built in 1952) and could use renovations at the very least. Those associated with the school do the best they can with what they have. A rather large budget cut is looming and will be detrimental to all students, teachers and parents.

I have 2 autistic children. One on each end of the spectrum. They attend Floyd Elementary School, which is a public school. It is incredible how much they have improved since going there. Special needs children are really taken care of there and are made to feel as much a part of everything just as much as a child with no problems. In a world today where people are afraid to get attached to the children, the loving teachers and staff in this school make the children feel loved and special. The children are very lucky. Also it extends to the loving care that the bus drivers give the children also. I have witnessed this a lot because I ride the preschool / special needs bus with one of my children.

I think this rating system is pretty funny. Floyd County's school system is about as good as you can expect from a rural county with no industrial tax base. Take it from someone who was educated here - the teachers at the high school truly care and work to prepare you for college. I attribute my success in college and life to many of the teachers I had in high school. I find it extremely funny that Safety and Discipline only has two stars. In my 13 years in school I saw less than 5 fights total. Go to Christiansburg or Blacksburg High and see if you can find anyone that says the same.

I have two children who attend Floyd Elementary, and I must say that Floyd is lacking in a few areas. There are not any before or after school programs for children such as adventure club, or tutoring help for children. It would certainly help parents who work outside the county. Other counties surrounding Floyd have these programs, and it is ashame that we do not.

My daughter has been attending Floyd E for the last two years. She has been given great attention, as well as being allowed to excell in areas such as math and reading. The key to a good education anywhere is parental involvment. The teachers and staff can only do what is needed during the school day. The rest is up to the parents. Let's quit blaming someone else for our own down fall.

I would not put my child in this school system, you would be better off home schooling, in this county. A parent very concerned in the direction of education in this school. Run and go somewhere else. No after school help for elem. your basically on your own.
