Graysville Elementary School Reviews

The word "nurturing" is overused at our school!  In some cases, sure childrend are nurtured. But I've seen the wrong character traits being nurtured and I have seen students punished instead of being  nurtured, all because they are children and not as mature as the teachers would like for them to be.  Bullying is NOT a character trait that should be nurtured or ignored! I know of three separate children who were bullied and the principles and teachers ignored it, in one case telling a parent that their child just needs to "toughen up".

I also know the partents who posted before and these parents are very involved at the school and they are not making false accusations, but trying to help get the word out to other parents to keep your ears and eyes open. No school, public or private, is perfect and if you think otherwise then you are part of the problem.

Outstanding in every way!

I have had one child attend Graysville from kindergarten through fifth grade and I have one in fourth grade now. It has been a very positive experience for both. The teachers, staff, and administration have always gone beyond what would be expected of them. I have never seen or heard of them turning a blind eye to anything. Quite the opposite in fact. I have witnessed them addressing many different things over the years and have been very pleased. I do not think they would ignore any situation involving bullies. I feel confident that my children have been educated way beyond just being able to take a test. Yes, the children take the CRCT every year and the teachers get them prepared to take this test. However, the classroom experience at Graysville is much more than that alone. Every teacher we have had has surpassed any expectations we ever had as parents. I have always felt welcomed by everyone I have encountered. I have never worried about my children while in the hands of the teachers and admistration. Thank you Graysville School for teaching and nurturing my children when they are at school! I think the other post is most likely from a parent that did not take the time to find out all the details involved, because I know these are false accusations.

Like all public schools, Graysville has its problems. The biggest problem is that the current principles do not want to address serious those problems, especially the bullying. I know of 4 different times in which they looked the other way. Another thing I hate is how some of the teachers are rude and hateful to some of the kids. My son learned a couple of new bad words back in 2nd grade from a couple of them and was told that he couldn't go to the restroom when he asked (he had to go in his pants and sit in it all day). They more or less teach kids the answers and prepare them to pass the next test instead of teaching them how to think and prepare them for their future. Once students reach the 4th grade, they are expected to be as mature as students 2 or 3 grades ahead of them. We were so frustrated by the teacher and staff, and hate the public school system so much, that we pulled my son out in the middle of the school year and began homeschooling him. As a parent trying to be involved with my kids education, and help the school, they make me feel unwelcome and I was even told once that I should stay away.  

I am not saying that you should not send your kids to this school. What I am saying is be involved, ask your kids questions and really listen to what they say, and visit the school often.
