4/24/2010parentWonderful environment for elementary students. The multiage classrooms are phenomenal. I have been very impressed.
10/3/2009parentThe teachers and staff motivate students and encourage the fun in learning every day.
10/3/2009parentExcellent facility and faculty. Teachers really care about the children.
5/25/2009parentThis school could be so much more than it is. It is a beautiful building with what could be an exciting science lab, which is empty. Instead of staffing an enrichment science teacher, the school pulled a 2nd grade teacher out of the classroom who now is in charge of quarterly testing and some curriculum duties. So the science lab has no living critters in cages, no experiments. Our experiences there were mixed. Our older child attended 1st - 5th grade, and had a pretty good experience. Our son attended in 1st and 2nd grades, and we moved him to Montessori school after that. If your child won't thrive in a 'one size fits all' situation, watch out! Our son is gifted and ADHD, but the school didn't identify him as gifted. We have since been informed he is highly gifted, but he felt stupid at Clemson Elementary.
10/29/2008parentI have three children at Clemson Elementry and they all enjoy school and are doing very well. I am active in the school classrooms and have found the vast majority of teachers to be caring and willing to take spend extra time with those that need it. Teaching a child to how to learn is done before first grade so we never expected a school to do this for us. The facility is clean, modern, safe, and well supplied. The pieces are in place here for a child to florish. I am not a 'highly educated Clemson faculty member' but our kids have all manged to score in the top 2%-4% on standardized test. While they do emphasize test scores, it is far from a sterile environment. Our children are constantly working on applied learning projects.
10/23/2008parentWhile the building is exceptional (new), the staff care only about test scores. They do not teach true learning, only how to take the end of grade testing. There is no caring for the child as an individual; they are only a number filling a seat at this school. If your child is struggling academically, don't expect any help; only blame of the student/parents. If your child enjoys a cold, sterile environment learning how to beat the end of grade testing, this is the school for you.
2/22/2008parentThis school is not any different from your typical inner-city school with the exception of a pretty building. Some teachers greatly excel above and beyond the rest, however I believe the population of them at this school is quite low. Many have simply come to their final resting place. Teachers generally are not accountable for their actions and make no effort to acknowlege or correct the situation. Overall, we have come across two 'bad eggs'. The test scores of children at this school are very good mostly because these children have relocated to Clemson from other states and countries and because many are children of highly educated Clemson University faculty. It is not because of the overwhelming amount of excellent instruction they are receiving. That is simply not the case. Greenville has some truly exceptional schools.
5/31/2007parentWe too have moved from another state and were told that is was one of the best schools in the area. But we have been greatly disappointed. Academics okay not great. I have noticed the teachers seem to be more interested in making the school look good (academically) than actually teaching the children how to learn. Wish we had chosen another school.
5/19/2007parentWe moved here from another state and we were told this is 'the' best school for our children. As far as I can tell there is little or no accountability for the teachers to complete the required curriculm on time. The teachers seem to abide by the law of averages here as well. If your child knows what's being taught they are not moving on to learn something new, but they are being put on the shelf to wait for the rest of the class to catch up. The building looks nice, but academic wise there is a lot of room for improvement.
5/8/2007parentWe moved here from another state and this school has been so helpful in many ways. The teachers and staff are understanding and always willing to help. I have been very involved in my childs classroom and I am always thanked by all for my help. The only concern I have is the door by the parent pick up line is always unlocked and people can just walk in anytime. This is something that should be looked into.
