This school is lacking in many areas. There is very little parent involvement at this school and the school has no idea how to go about getting any. Coming from a school with heavy parent involvement my enthusiam for volunteering was greeted with confusions. It seemed neither wanted and hardly excepted. The school has no clear disciplinary plan. Children with behavior problems are allowed to disrupt class rooms. My child has come home complaining of feeling sick and though having been to the nurse the school doesn't notify parents. This is yet another public school that teaches for children to take a test not to give them help to gain knowledge. My child was exposed to a teacher that had no idea how to discipline without screaming at the top of her lungs and she had absolutely no control over the class room. I was very unhappy with this school and have taken my kids out of it.
I have a child that attends this school. It is completely unorganized. The teachers and principal are making attempts to correct the issues, but there are many issues with discipline here. I am not seeing any real progress and would not reccomend this school to any parent.
I think Colwyck is a great school. My child loves it. She has learned so much and the school year has just started! Also before school started, they had begun to get parents involved. The teachers,and Principal are great. They really care about each child and their learning experience.
I completely disagree with the negative review given by another parent. This school is great! The teachers and principal are completely devoted to the academic development of each and every student. There are very few disciplinary problems throughout the school. Additionally, there is a very diverse student population, which helps the students learn to accept each other, despite cultural differences.
This school is very unorganized. I would not recomend it to anyone. I was very disapointed in both the principal and the teacher involvement, which in turn made the parent involvement terrible.
