Idlewild Elementary School Reviews
Idlewild is a diamond in the ruff. It has a highly qualified staff, and dedicated parent and community-based volunteers that meet the needs of the magnet, regular education, and SAC students in attenandance. It has extracurricula activities for students to include Odyssey of the Mind (OM), Right Moves for Youth (RMFY), Student Council, Recyclng Club, Chess Club, Science Olympiads, Word Masters, Math Olympians; afterschool study hall (monitored by volunteer staff members), Eagle Club (an afterschool tutoring program-taught by volunteer staff members). It is a diverse school in social, economic, racial, and ethnicities; it these differences daily, and culminates the daily recognitions with a BIG celebration during their annual International Festval in the Spring. There are so many good things happening at this school they are too numerous to name; you just have to visit to see the wonderful teaching and activties that are being taught to students, and the wonderful family friendly atmosphere that is so needed in schools today. Idlewild is also a uniform school which is a positive in that students remain focused on academcs and not on what they are wearing or not wearing.
Idlewild is a shining example for other schools in CMS to follow.
