Craig has been a wonderful school for our children. The staff here work very hard to reach each learner and create a safe and positive learning environment. Our child literally skips to school each morning! It's a school that celebrates diversity and has earned national recognition for it's character education. We love Craig and Parkway!

It’s really changed the past 3 years. The school has a lot of behavioral issues and teachers and staff are reactive instead of proactive. The morale is also terrible. Teachers don’t support events. Parents don’t support events. The school is not transparent with parents and does not accept parent volunteers in the classrooms during the day: to hide behaviors perhaps? Administration is more focused on keeping teachers happy than parents. Teachers have a “thats not my job” attitude. There are two teachers there that are well-liked amongst kids and parents. The rest are “meh” or not liked.

I taught as a sub at this school and Craig is different than other Parkway schools. (As a sub, I had taught me many different schools.) The class size was 20%-30% larger than other schools. For an elementary school, that's just too many students in one room. Also, in other Parkway schools, students who needed additional help would go to their special groups (such as reading, math, etc) for an entire hour. Here, instead, they came in and out of the room. So they weren't there when you gave out the assignments, then they came in and you'd have to explain the assignments to them again, while the other students needed your help. There were teacher aids, but they weren't there with you the entire time, so you had to figure out how to manage a large class on your own. The other teachers weren't friendly either, not sure why, since I had great experience with the staff in other Parkway schools. I felt that this school was slightly better than the City schools but vastly worse than other Parkway schools.

The only reason it isn't 5 stars is because my child says her teacher is too over reactive, and only takes pride in the people that have won projects and stuff.
