This school has a dedicated staff of Classroom and Resource teachers. However, the discpline in this school has really gone down hill this past year. During the SOLs my daughter said that the students were outrageous. They were rolling on the floor, calling teachers names and the principal and assistant principal refused to do anything about it. I hope this improves with the new incoming principal.
This school definitely deserves a higher rating than it has. My child attended this school for two years after attending private school beforehand, there was no rough transition and the teachers were of great quality. From the parental involvement at any event it is quite clear that this community cares about the quality of education provided to their children and it reflects how they are treated. It saddens me that we have to move.
I am a mother of two children my daughter is in the 4th grade. She is gifted. And my son is in pre-k. The teachers are great. My daughter has been attending Tanner Creek since she was in 1st grade. She has always like all of her teachers. The teachers keep in close contact with me. My son just started this year and I see a complete in him for the good. I feel so safe leaving my son there. I know he is in great hands at Tanner's Creek. I love the uniforms but I also like the idea of them having to do all there homework for the week and being able to dress in jeans or whatever. It give them one day to express themselves. I think Tanner Creek is great. And I know that nexts year. We are really going to miss everyone there.
We are a military family and we moved from the Virginiabeach area to the Norfolk area and im very surprised that this school is giving my 2nd grader all this homework, it is crazy because when she attended the VB school they taught them more in the class rooms and when they come home they would only have a few things to review over and it would be things that they did in the class for that day. I am so happy that we are buying a house in another city so I can get her out of this school bc I feel if I dont then this will be a set up for failure. (((( she started out doing bad )))) Im guessing bc of the change.
one of the best elementary schools in the norfolk area ,my 2 kids have attended this school and from day one the teachers and the staff have been very knowledgeable and helpfull. Thanks
My wife and I toured Tanners Creek during the recent open house. I have a child in kindergarten. Her teacher is Mr Goodbread. He seemed very nice and my daughter likes being in his class. My daughter loves the art teacher. She really looks forward to her class each week. Mrs Johnson gave my wife and I the tour and was very pleasant. This school seems to be a safe place for my daughter.
My daughter has attended Tanners Creek Elementary for one year. I am impressed by the Pre-Kindergarten teachers of 07-08 school year. The school PTA is simply the best! and the school office and cafeteria staff were also very helpful during my visits. I am looking forward to another great year.
