We love our son's third grade teacher, Mrs. Brunell. We got so lucky with her!
We have had a daughter at Maple Hills for K and 1st and absolutely love this school. It is in a great community with fantastic parent support and has wonderful teachers. We have nothing negative to say about the school, it's staff or the experience so far of being a Maple Hills Eagle.Love it!
I agree with most comments, though I would like to point out that Maple Hills has undergone many changes in regards to the principal. Finally, with Mrs. Bean, the school can move forward and become one of the top schools in the district....when things are done right at Maple Hills, there's no other school like it. The community support is through the roof, and it is evident by how the campus appears.
The combination of teaches, staff, and amazing volunteers makes this school a wonderful place to work and learn!
Only thing that would be better is the math curriculum. My kids have done well here, and thrive in the partnering relationship w/teachers and parents. I've heard some negative feedback on the principal, but have not experienced it myself. Overal it's a great learning environment.
This school has gone down hill in the past two years. Experienced teachers have left and a constant rotation of principals has not helped. This school is behind in their technology, teachers do not seem motivated to take the extra classes necessary to get the active-X boards - only three classes have them! New principal seems to tout the admin line, not willing to stand up against the terrible new math program. WONDERFUL special ed teacher but the whole IEP/504 process in this school is a disaster! You have to fight like heck to get your child qualified and outside testing is a must. It makes me sad to see the recent decline and seeming lack of teacher involvement and interest.
Parents are extremely involved, often grading work for teachers, entering grades, etc. 100% PTA involvement is great, but there are privacy issues to consider. District embraces 'new' math, which teachers must follow. Fabulous new principal. In this district, teachers have three days to return calls/emails. Very little teacher-initiated contact with families. Extra-curricular activities are fee-based, which works well in this affluent community. If 504/IEP will be an issue for your student, research extensively.
Overall this is a decent school. But, their math tutoring program will set your child back YEARS. The reading tutoring program will do nothing to help your child learn to read.
This is a great school. The staff works to provide a safe, exciting environment where the children are eager to learn.
This school provides standard state programs and tries very hard to enforce it. However schools are not only learning abc, but others. I don't feel like this school are well-rounded. In addition, the school leadership which includes the principal and lead teachers are narrow-minded. Perhaps that is the reason.
The teachers at this school are amazing! The upbeat learning experiencing thrill students. I have never experienced such a place, where partnering with parents is such a high priority.
This is a hidden little gem. We love Maple Hills Elementary. The teachers are very good and have a good balance of discipline with compassion.
This school has very good teachers and makes the children feel like they can acheive in life. I give Maple Hills 10 stars if I could because teachers and staff give 110% of their effort.
This school is very parent involved and main focus is on the childrens acedemics.
