The people giving the school a bad review don't understand that the issues they outline are prevalent everywhere and Evansville school is far above other schools in all respects. A school isn't there to parent your children.
My opinion may be biased, but i happen to think that Levi Leonard Elementary is a wonderful school. The staff goes above and beyond to care for the children that attend school there, and as a parent with a child who has learning and psychological disabilities i would not allow my child to attend school here of i thought that they were not doung thier job to the best of thier abillities. Thank you teachers and staff for all your hard work.
Evansville School Is horrible. The staff are bullies, and they allow other children to be bullies. My children have had horrible experiences at this school. They need all new staff, and to have a real anit-bullying program, not just posters and signs you put up to make it look like the school cares.
There are some very good teachers. However the principal really needs to rethink how she treats and interacts with parents. There is a growing unrest with the principal. She is very condescending and likes to blame parents.
The school does nothing to prevent bullying - a teacher that works for the Evansville School District sends their own child to another school district because their own child was subject to bullying. The schools in Evansville do nothing to prevent it. They do not embrace a diverse culture.
Evansville school district is okay. Once all the kinks are worked out with lack of communication. And lack of documentation or even getting a straight answer on what happened on anything, nobody ever seems to know. As well as once parents are taken seriously by staff. It would be and has the potential to be a great school if those issues are cleared up. But after 15+ years I do not think that is going to happen. But this is just my opinion as a parent of a student.
Our school is fantastic. From our custodians, teacher aids, clerical staff, principal and students. Parents are welcome to be involved as much as they can. The communitiy of Evansville school district is so supportive of our children. Academics are strongly stressed in a fun involved way. The music and art department work well together to put on numourous outstanding concerts. The teachers work very hard at organizing the programs and the kids are so proud to be on stage in front of their family and friends. I really wish that the school system would put some more money on the school grounds. If you are thinking about moving to the Evansville School system and don't have kids are taxes are rather high. The district is thinking about another tax hike for building another school. That will cause many people without children to think about moving including my parents.
