I think the Principal is lacking in the skills required to run the school effectively and does not allow her teachers the freedom to teach their best way while using up their after school hours with nonessential meetings.
This school is the reason my children are in the process of being switched to homeschool.My daughter was called racial slurs on the bus. In the first grade. The bus driver did nothing. They file for "abandonment" and want money if you are 30 minutes late getting a child, even if you call in advance because something happened and it was an emergency. Rather than giving information on how children are doing, they will wait until a child is failing and only then blame the parents, who had no idea it was happening.This school is well below the state averages on every subject but the teachers blame the parents for the failure rate. School busses run multiple routes in both am and pm which causes students to be late. The neighborhoods left for last are almost exclusively low income and these same students are the ones who go the cafeteria for breakfast, making them even later and setting them even farther behind academically, even though they were already at a disadvantage to begin with simply because of their financial status.The principal speaks down on families who have hit hard times and treats people like they are lower than her.
I believe CPE is a wonderful school - Mrs Schabel and Niepman were great 4K teachers! I cant say enough about the Class Room , Programs and Principal. All the extra attention given to students there - they deserve to be recognized!!! Car pool ran smooth ect - YOU ROCK COLLEGE PARK ELEMENTARY
I feel very blessed that one of my boys has been able to attend CPE. He was involved in many activities. The teachers kept me updated at a moment's notice. The instruction is out of this world. The teachers are very inviting not only for the students but parents also. The school has an open door policy. It is obvious the main focus is the success of each and every student!
