12 Parent Reviews for Petroglyph Elementary School

My kids did fabulous at Petroglyph! You always have a teacher that maybe only fits the bill marginally but saying that I thought overall being involved for 8 years in the classroom and PTA ...I would rate it stellar for a public school. All but one teacher really worked with my kids and me.

I miss Petroglyph more than you could know. There were such bright, caring teachers there and I still smile, remembering those beautiful children. I enjoyed my time there tremendously and save memories of the learning we did together fondly. I wonder if it's time to paint paw prints in the walkways again? ...  Read more

I did not care for my child's teacher this year. She said if I had any concerns to address them with her and when I did, she made me feel like I was overreacting. Considering how most parents feel about bullying, I don't think I was overreacting when my son came home with marks on his arms when another ...  Read more

I'm glad that some parents do have positive experiences with this school, but I am not so lucky. First of all, yes the principal is not as friendly as principals of my children's previous schools. If and when she does wave, it's done with a straight face and so quick that by the time I get my hand up ...  Read more

Comparing Petroglyph to other schools, including the ones situated in other states, the atmosphere, safety and operation of the school is conducted professionally. I believe (all schools) should follow the example of Petroglyph, by teaching our children(s) to become a decent and well respected individuals ...  Read more

Excellent school in almost every way! Teachers highly effective, qualified, and caring, and the principal, while occasionally more "businesslike" than some parents would like, does have children's best interest at heart and has managed to HELP Petroglyph become one of only 15 out of 120+ schools in APS ...  Read more

My husband and I have had a very positive experience with both teachers, principal, and vice principal. Our son was being picked on in Kindergarten and his teacher, principal, and vice principal took it very seriously. They kept us informed, took care of the behavioral issues, and took it seriously. ...  Read more

The staff is very good and is very highly qualified over 80% with masters degrees, over 26 nationally board ceritifed. The principal lacks experience and sensitivity with childeren and I think part of that is not being a parent herself. It is unfortunate to see the staff have to work around her instead ...  Read more

How is it possible that an administrator with such obvious contempt for young children, especially those with special needs, is promoted from Assistant Principal to Principal? Petroglyph Elementary's young and inexperienced Principal is dishonest and disrespectful to students, parents and teachers alike. ...  Read more

This school is not what it used to be. When the Assistant Principal took over after the Principal retired last year, she threw away all that was good. The new principal is extremely inexperienced, has absolutely NO control over her staff and is very dishonest with parents. I have never seen a staff ...  Read more
