Bohumil Shimek Elementary School Ratings & Reviews

October 09, 2017 Submitted by a parent
My children have attended several different schools due to moving to jobs within the state of Iowa, and I can tell you, Shimek is BY FAR the best school ever! The attention that these teachers, and administrators give to these kids is nothing short of amazing! They go out of their way each and every single day to make sure that every child has what they need. That every family feels welcome. That everyone feels like they belong. They continuously create an environment that makes people WANT to be part of it! This teaching staff is nothing short of the best. Every teacher at this school has something different that they bring to the table, and they all have one complete goal in mind; making sure our kids feel loved, and succeed! I am SO PROUD to be part of the Shimek family, and I will continue to support this amazing school, and everything that it offers to our kids!!!

I love the one on one attention that the kids are able to get from this school. The teachers and staff are all willing to help out every child whenever the need arises. This is the BEST community that you can be part of. Everyone looks out for one another and there are friendships blooming around every corner. A great place to call "home"!

As a parent of a special needs child, Shimek has been wonderful. The teachers are well trained to deal with kids of the autism spectrum and the principle is very hard working and accessible. I think it is a great elementary school and we bought a house in the district in large part because of our experience with Shimek.

Shimek is a huge disappointment. Teachers use black-line masters for every subject (boilerplate Math & reading). No creativity, teacher construction, care or inspiration in developing units. Minimal writing, & no written feedback on student work in any subject area. Home communication limited to black-line (photocopied from workbook) newsletters that have no value. Students are all subjected to the same, soulless instruction and no effort is made to differentiate for unique learning needs. Very little community connection, service or civic learning (beyond collections), field trips, thematic instruction, projects, or any meaningful instruction. Parents disconnected. (2 teacher written newsletters in 4 years). No teacher websites, blogs, emails, newsletters, or other communication to support parents in understanding how kids are growing, or how to extend learning from home. Minimal response to emails. School garden, created by parents and community, is ignored by administration and teachers. Culture of fear permeates school curriculum, rules and overall engineering. Mediocre leadership altogether. Education is what we'd expect from a blighted urban school, not ICCSD.

Shimek has the worlds best before and after school program! It has a beautiful campus, And a tightknit family community Shimek has the hardest working principal and custodian you will ever meet Academically, It doesn't seem that science or social studies are taught at Shimek Field trips are rare. The hardest part for me as a Shimek parent is communication from teachers does not happen at all (Beyond parent teacher conferences twice a year) Because there is no communication (I may be wrong) But my experiences they do language arts and some math all day long. I would love to trust that there is a thoughtful, comprehensive curriculum, With meaningful tasks, Community connections, And a great deal of care. Almost all of the teacher prep time Seems to be dedicated to meetings, Which Precludes teachers from Constructing meaningful lessons on a wide variety of subjects. Elementary teachers in most other buildings Prepare weekly newsletters for families To track what is being covered In school. I'm not aware that any Shimek teachers do this. there is also too much emphasis on safety
