I think the teachers to an excellent job. If the scores are low it's because parents don't work with their kids outside of school. Every teacher my child has had goes above and beyond trying with the kids!
I have had two children attend Polk and I think that the teachers and staff are wonderful. They definetely get them ready for Middle school.
My Child is a student and I think that the teachers try very hard to involve the parents as much as possible that is important.All the teachers are very nice and try to teach our kids not on;y reading/writting/math etc. but also resecpt for others. I do think that more parents could get involed with their childerns schools.
I have two children who attend Polk. The teachers here are turning out some great kids!
