Grimes Elementary School Reviews
The experienced teachers give the school STABILITY & SERVE AS MENTORS to the new teachers (thank u, u knw who u r); the new teachers have brought fresh ideas & enthusiasm to the classroom, however, while experience is important it is evident that the teachers have not become effective in the classrooms (the 2010 test scores speak for themselves); not to mention the EMERGENCY-CREDENTIALED teachers who fill posts which only means that the school has difficulty attracting & retaining QUALIFIED teachers...!..? The level of quality is absent at Grimes and it is at this level that there are no guarantees for a higher level of student achievement. The budget is limited and there are NO partnerships with any1!!..(businesses, local universities, or health care professionals) this makes it difficult to pay for new innovative programs. I thank God that my child has maintained an honor roll status.
