Horrendous parents are better off homeschooling, it is a joke.Posted by a parent on 11/4/2019
An awesome teacher should be recognized at West school who teaches the 2nd grade their. This teacher is amazing with her patience with the students in her classroom. Walk into her room and you will get a great western welcome. There is something to be said for a teacher that teaches in a school that she was enrolled in as a child. Coolidge is a small town and it is amazing to see the wonderful teachers who could have chosen to teach somewhere else, stay in their community. The smiles on their faces daily as the students come in to the classes make this school a great place to be every day. The dedication of so many teachers is what makes this school amazing. Parents get involved in your school! Volunteer in the classrooms to demonstrate to your child that their education is your top priority. Promote your child's success by taking time to read to them or help them with their homework. Their future can be bright and fruitful with your encouragement.Posted by a community member on 5/6/2014
I use to go to this before I moved back to california and I must say that I really loved this school. In the 7th grade I met the coolest teachers there and one of them is the assistant principal -Mr. Bruno. Bruno was an excellent history teacher he made history amazing instead of making it boring, I remember that we never touch the history book and always made the class laugh and had debates across the classroom. Mr. Bruno made history alive in his class room and till this day I still like history class people say it's boring but not to me . From your old student -Ismael PerezPosted by a teacher on 11/30/2013
Mr. Bruno is an excellent asst. principal at West School. He has a great relationship with the students. My daughter adores him and looks forward to seeing him every morning! He greets parents, students and staff in a friendly way and makes them feel welcome at his school!Posted by a parent on 2/8/2013
Being a native from Coolidge I have gotten to know many of the staff members at each of our Coolidge Schools. Like every other school there are always sour lemons. Parents cannot base the entire school based on ONE teacher. There are 3-4 teachers per grade level. Many of them are Coolidge natives themselves. West has teachers who care, teachers who are willing to go above and beyond. I have been blessed to have excellent teachers for my children. Miss Garcia, Miss Ortiz, Miss Henry, Miss Cooper, Miss Cardenas, Miss Eades, Miss Hall, & Mr. Herrera just to name a few. These teachers have made a difference in my children's lives. I've had oppurtunities to compare notes with friends, every school in Coolidge can use improvement. Every school in the the world for that matter.Posted by a parent on 8/17/2012

- Heartland Ranch Elementary School
1/10GreatSchools RatingParent Rating AverageTerrible. My son went here for Kindergarten. I walked into the classroom for meet the teacher night, and everything was labeled around the room. Great for K kids to learn. Except half of them were spelled incorrectly! Ex. calendar was spelled calender, attendance was spelled attendence. How can a teacher get through college without knowing how to spell simple words they use daily? I had him moved to another class, next teacher was almost as bad. My son was more advanced and would get very bored. The teacher called me daily about his behavior. I told her he needed to be challenged, he already knew how to read and spell, the other kids couldn't even recognize letters. Halfway through the year they tested him for the gifted program, except they don't put kids in the gifted program until 2nd grade. He tested gifted in all areas but pointless if they don't change anything. Finally with my insistence they began giving him higher level work, eventually sending him to 2nd and 3rd grade classrooms. The teacher remarked how much better his behavior was. All I could think was how much time they wasted that he could have been learning. Pulled him out after K, doing much better in new school.Parent Review9y ago

- Imagine Coolidge Elementary School
3/10GreatSchools RatingParent Rating AverageIt is unfortunate that some families post ugly things about great schools. Every school has rough edges that are always needing some attention but Imagine Elementary is a great school for children both academically and ethically. This school focuses as much on the character building of my children as much as they do their academics. It reinforces the expectations I have at home and therefore is teaching my child to be a better person in this world. I love Imagine and their teachers!!!Parent Review8y ago
