Enders Elementary School Reviews
I attended this school as a child and absolutely loved it! Principal Gibbons was the best (I'm talking about many moons ago : ) ) She knew almost everyone by name and was so nice and went out of her way to say hi. I was very excited that my son would get the chance to go the same school I went to...until he got there. I feel that the school's leadership team is very poor and have only heard negative things about the principal. I had the chance to actually see in her action recently where she snapped at a parent in the parking lot. I was so disgusted I considered calling the school board. I also feel that my child and his classmates areon "lock down" at the school instead of having a fun, enviornment and I truly feel that this is a reflection of the principal and her absurd power trip. More recently there seems to be something very strange going on around campus that no one is giving informatino out about and I am concerned for my son's safety. This school is in a very good, pretty well-off neighborhood and it has been brought down pretty drastically. He has been picked on by older kids at recess and no one does anything. I received the best news today that the current principal is retiring in June and I cannot wait until the new school year as I am postivie that the entire school will see a diference. I highly recommend this school to anyone in the neighborhood, but wait until the new school year :)
This school was amazing 10 years ago. When the leadership declined, the staff morale declined with it, which reflects in their scores. Also, a few years ago this school was placed on a title 9. Now, a percentage of the students, are on a transfer, from lower income areas. When this happened the amount of bullying increased on the playground.
