We were very fortunate for my grandchild to attend this school as her first school experience. She was sad to have to change schools. There is a certain sense of professionalism accompanied by sincere and caring teachers. High expectations are clear, and as well they should be. This is why the school remains one of the better schools within a wide radius. Student success is based on the curriculum, the teachers, the administrators, and of course parent and student participation. Support your school, wherever it is. Thanks to Southwest Elementary for setting the standard for my grandchild.

Some of these comments are just rude and untrue! THese parents are spelling word wrong and not finishing sentences! I am a current 5th grade student at CES and I love it.I'm not on of those popular,cheerleaders.And I'm usally not in center attention but I still get noticed.If something wrong the teacher's will notice right away. When there is bullying(that doesn't happen alot) the teachers,staff, or principle handle it calmly and kindly and everything later turns out fine.Clemmons Elementary is a very welcoming school everyone is treated like family! When I graduate this year I will never forget this amazing school.

This school does have / has had some very good teachers. However they now have a new very uptight principal who has very few people skills and "rules with an iron fist.' He refuses to acknowledge kids who make straight As while giving lots of attention to those with substandard performance. I think many of the teachers are retiring or leaving because of him. I would agree with the previous post about the PTA, image is a lot at this school and if you don't "fit in their box" well, your thoughts and opinions just don't count. Yes, there are some bullies, many from overindulged environments but I focus on my children and how they respond or react to these situations. These things happen everywhere. So, overall a decent school with some good teachers, but the leadership keeps everyone so uptight, it is hard for them to teach at the top of their game.

This school has gotten a new principal and assistant principal during the last two years. The atmosphere here is open and welcoming. The school is a great school with really high performance expectations. My kids are valued and cared for by their teachers. The teachers expect the kids to do homework. They are required to read daily and to read additionally at home. This is wonderful to me. My kids are doing very well here. Also, I would add that the school administration is very approachable and low key. They want the kids to enjoy school, have fun, but most of all learn. I know of occasional issues in my children's classes, but the teachers and administrators have done a good job addressing issues.

My child attended this school for 4 years. Yes there is or was a click of children did the bullying but they have since graduated. To the parent that posted the problem is not the school but the parents I agree. The parents of the kids doing the bullying were always there to complain that their child was suspended and the suspension lifted for some reason. There is no support for the children being bullied. The administration and faculty have a did not see didn't happen approach. My child went from an A-B student to Ds in one quarter and the teachers, principal etc. did not seem to see a problem with that. Yes I did talk to the principal, yes I did talk to the teachers and yes I did try to talk to the bully's parents. Just want people to know the truth and check out all your

It appears that the problem is not with the school but with the parents. If the parents who are writing these reviews cannot spell or use complete sentences then what do you expect from their children (At this age children learn by example). Think about it before expressing your opinions that don't make sense. Also schools should not replace the parent s responsibility to teach the basics. People forget that if your child needs extra help then it's the parents that need to step up to help their child and if your child is bullied then it's the parents that need to step in and secure the safety of the child by speaking with the bully's parents, principal, and teachers. People rely to much these days on schools to do the parenting.

I am very unhappy with this school for several reasons. 1.If your child needs extra help u have to stand you head to make them give the child what they need b/c they don't want to be bothered by the extra step. 2.They do have a few good teachers but the majority of them have a student click. If they don't like your child then your child will be ignored for the yr. 3.They have a horrible student click and once again if your child does not fit in they are outcasted and picked on. 4.There is a no bullying policy that has not set standards for punishment. The children that do it get away with it and the problem is swept under the rug & ignored. 5. There is a huge PTA and they are very active but clicky & u have to have the right image to join.

If your child is quiet and an average student, this school is okay. If your child likes to express her/his opinion and thinks outside the box, don't send your child here. Clemmons Elem. only puts out robots with no free thoughts of their own.

I have seen the involvement these teachers have with their students and they are well rounded in lessons and class activities. Very attentive to individual needs of a student. I love this school and would do anything possible to make sure all my kids have a chance to attend and experience the fun and love that is put into Clemmons.

If the teacher does not like your child, he/she will not thrive or succeed> And it is very true that they don not have a clue about any assistance should your child need some help with any learning issues. Unless you have a flawless child, don't send them there because some of the teachers will isolate your child.

If you have a child with any learning disablities do not send them here. The staff is clueless about helping or getting help for your child. Terrible, Terrible school!!

Clemmons Elementary is a good school. We moved here from out of state and we have been happy with it. I think the communication from the school could be better and there are certainly some safety issues that would not be okay in a larger city. I think they could challenge the kids a lot more. There seems to be plenty of help for those who are behind but those who are ahead don't get it until they are in 3rd grade. Overall, my children have been happy there.

I've been extremely happy with the academic standards and teacher qualifications. I chose this school over all other local schools.

Clemmons Elementary is a great place to be. My daughter attended this school for two years and she had the best time of her life. Teachers and staff were always friendly. The student-teacher ratio is low for a public school (in Kindergarten my daughter's class had only 16 students). The PTA is strong and works hard for the school. The test scores are among the highest in the area. The school also has great family activities. It was hard to leave this school due to a change of job out of state.
