4/16/2010otherTeachers at this school are wonderful! They do everything in their power to help my child, who has been struggling this year. I appreciate their effort so much. Teachers are the one who do all the work. The administration at this school does not provide support for their staff. As a parent, I only come in every now and then, but I know that the morale at this school is very low. My child tells me that classes have to be separated during recess. How is structured recess supposed to help our kids interact and learn from each other? My kid says that when the principal or assistant principals come, the class feels scared and they all get nervous. Since when should a child ever feel scared and nervous at school?!?! This is outrageous!
9/8/2009parentThe school is disorganized and I feel like the kids are always being reprimanded. During lunch, children are only allowed to whisper. If they feel the kids are getting to loud, they turn off the lights and nobody is allowed to talk. They are only allowed to sit with their feet in front or they will be reprimanded. Parents are not allowed to walk their kids to class and if a handful of kids are being bad, the whole class is not allowed to go to recess. No field trip last year. The two years prior to that it was just to the Science Resource Center for Cyfair. Not very exciting. I went. I only gave it three stars because of some of the staff. The girl at the front desk is great and also the music and computer teachers are awesome. Those are the two classes my children enjoy.
8/27/2009parentThis is an unorganized school. The principal uses is power to bash his employees. The school is dead.The kids do the samenderthing every day. Ohter than learning and getting hollowed at by some of the staff members I would not send my kids back to that school fot nothing.
8/6/2009parentAll of the teacher's speak English at this school I don't know what the person who posted on June 2, 2003 is talking about. Their technology program is awesome- this is one of the few schools that have a computer lab teacher. My child is teaching me things I didn't know about computers.
5/11/2004parentThis school has a teriffic 21 Century program! I have nothing but good things to say about this school - from the Frontdesk to the Principal's office everybody is forthcoming and the children always come first!
8/26/2003parentMetcalf has proved to be a great school. The teachers seem to really care about the students. The morale is awesome. I am very glad that I have two children attending and that my oldest went on to junior high wth the education Metcalf gave him.
6/2/2003 You are lucky if your teacher understands or speaks English! Seemed nobody cared and the staff there had low morale, I hear it has improved.
