Cobb Mountain Elementary School Reviews
Jeez, these reviews are harsh.
My child is in an upper grade here. Did not have some of these lower grade controversial teachers, but all in all this has been a great school for our child. The kids do work hard; sometimes the reward system is a bit questionable, but I feel the staff has been caring and listened to our concerns. There is a free instrumental music program for the upper grades and a lovely garden. There have been several outstanding teachers along the way.
I will agree with all the negative postings!!! As far as the Kindergarten teacher, yes she was amazing and we need more teachers like her!!! I am very disappointed about this school as it has gone down hill very fast. You report problems and concerns to the principle and nothing is ever done to correct the issues reported. With a lot of parents deciding to do homeschooling this year maybe the school will get the hint and change things if not I see this school having to close due to lack of students. Very sad that the teachers are so demanding and controlling as if its a military school. I strongly recommend not sending your kid(s) here and find a better alternative if at all possible.
I agree with the negative reviews. My child had a beautiful experience in kindergarten with a wonderful caring teacher who taught and nurtured the children. After that it went downhill with the 1st and 2nd grade teachers being so strict it's to the point of bullying. I know of several parents who opted to homeschool rather than have their kids in their classes including the head of the PTO! The principal is nice enough but doesn't do anything when a parent complains about the behavior of a teacher. I had higher expectations for this beautiful mountain school. Very very disappointed.
Good test scores, that's all.
This is a very unfriendly school. If your kid is bullied they will be asked to leave if not forced to! Many friends kids have had this happen to them. There are a couple of horrendous teachers that parents take their kids out for a year rather than have them in their classes. The Parents organization make most of the parents feel unwelcome and their is a parent who came on campus took photos of kids then sold them on the internet! Not cool! I hope this school changes, beautiful school on the outside, just not on the inside!
Not the friendliest bunch!
