Clinton Elementary School Reviews
This school is considreded one of the best schools in Arkansas. I agree for grades k-4 thru 3rd. Any grades beyond that, the teachers are horrible. The lack of communication and organization is unbelievable. Teachers loosing students work and requiring them to do it agian is not fare.. And the sad part about it, is that its an ongoing issue. The lack of professionalism is not only with the teachers its with the administration too. You can have meeting/ conference with the teachers and the administration and nothing is resolved. I am a firm believer that you can not please everyone, but at what point will the administration take a GOOD look at the entire picture. I took a chance, thinking the next year it would get better. However it has gotten worse.. Its a pity that this is the only school I'm zoned for and in the state of Arkansas you have assigned zones.
This school has a lot of great teachers, and resources for students. But if your child has a 504 or ADHD like my son, it is not the right one, I am in the middle of a 2 year struggle with this school to implement proper modifications in the classroom and have delt with unfair criticism from the principal. Their dicipline strategies are lacking to say the least. Our schools should nurture our children not exclude them because they are different.
my daughter has been going to this school since k-4 and she loves all the teachers and staff. There hasn's been a day go by that she doesn't want to go to school. i have nothing but great things to say about clinton.
I think this is one of the best Elementary Schools in Sherwood. I'm very glad I got the opportunity to enroll my granddaughter there. The staff is just wonderful, we just love the Principal, Vice Principals, Office Staff and Teachers.
I would have to disagree with the previous post about low tolerance of children with Special Needs. I have a special needs son and he is receiving the services that he needs. They have actually gone out of their way to ensure that we as parents are totally involved in his treatment plan. They are providing more resources than we ever imagined. I will write more next year when our autistic daughter begins school there. Hopefully they will be just as helpful then.
There are not many things I can say about this school that are good. Most of the classroom teachers are good, but the schools admin has a low tolerance for children with special needs.
