15 Parent Reviews for Poinsettia Elementary School

My two children have had such great experiences at this school. I find the staff and teachers very helpful and willing to go the extra mile to do what's best for the children. I find the Office Manager and Principal to be very helpful.

Our experience here has been awful. The teachers yells, texts during class and is unkind. There is no creative instruction at all. I agree with other reviews that there is a definite lack in principal leadership. It's too bad because the kids are nice.

My child has been at the Poinsettia since Kindergarten and is now in 5th grade. The teachers have all been below average and bring nothing new or innovative to the classroom. They have no idea about differentiated curriculum and have trouble with classroom discipline. My child is a GATE student and ...  Read more

Poinsettia is a wonderful school and has great extras that so many schools don't get a chance to experience. My children have had Harvil, Clow, Becker, and Ditto as teachers. They are all amazing and would not change a thing about any of their varied teaching methods. Each time my child was placed with ...  Read more

We have had a mixed experience at Poinsettia. I have no complaints about any of the teachers, all have been great for our three kids and have gone out of their way to help in many ways. We have had a difficult time getting a response out of the higher ups relating to playground supervision, fighting ...  Read more
