Driswood Elementary School Reviews
The Administration at DES is very difficult for the teachers to thrive.
This may account for high turnover of teachers. The teachers are very capable but are not supported by the Administration. Teachers lack supplies and support for their ideas.
Parents are subjected to a closed door policy that doesn't even permit lunch with your child there unless you give a 48 hour notice. To have lunch with my child I have to sign my child out of school and sign him back in. The atmosphere of the school is very cold and not warm or inviting for students and parents.
I would NOT recommend this school for elementary education.
Our kids deserve better than this leadership.
The teachers I have experienced have been GEMS... Diamonds in the ROUGH.... and the rough is the leadership.
If your child attends DES then please support your teacher and keep your eyes aware of the leadership activities.
