Gallberry Farm Elementary Ratings & Reviews
We love this school! It's been a great experience being a part of Gallberry. Send your kids here!!
I love this school,all my children went there and the teachers are excellent!!
This school is by far the worst school I have ever seen for children on the autism spectrum. They are kept outside away from all the other children in pods that don't even have bathrooms or water fountains. They do not get to play on the slides for recess. They do not get to learn their grade level curriculum because they are in multi grade classrooms. They are treated like 2nd class citizens and now their therapists are not even allowed in school with them. CCSD is horrible for children with disabilities. I can't wait to move and take my child out of this poor excuse for a district place.
"We moved into the Gray's Creek area because we were told by other military parents that it was better than other areas of Fayetteville. We have children at the High School, Middle School and Gallberry Farm Elementary. I will start by saying that Gallberry Farm school has a great PTO, front desk staff, counselor, and school nurse; however, we did not have a great experience with our child's teacher. Our child dealt with teasing/bullying from his teacher on a weekly basis. She used words such as, ""that's bull!"", ""shut up!"", ""you're fools!"", ""screw this!"" and other forms of inappropriate language that third grade teachers should not be using toward children. I really did not believe these accusations that my child was coming home with regarding his teacher, until another parent told me that her child was coming home saying the same things. Parents believe your children when they come home upset about what adults say to them! This teacher does not have biological children, nor seem like she really teach for the love of teaching, but rather for a paycheck. She had a problem with parents coming to the classroom without an appointment and other things that should have been red flags to us as parents. She speaks to the parents in a soft sweet kinder-tone, but talk to the children in a loud and rough tone when other adults are not around. Needless to say, I requested a room transfer. The principal honored my request to move our child to another 3rd grade teacher; however, the new teacher was not happy about acquiring a new student at the third quarter of the school year. As a parent I am trying to be as involved as I can in his new classroom and the new teacher is receptive of that (thankfully). We still have set the wheels in motion to file a former compliant to the Dept of Education regarding my concerns of maltreatment towards military children (who by the way garner special funding for NC public schools) from his former teacher. For military parents, I highly suggest moving to the Jack Britt school zone, or enroll your children into private schools. There are Opportunity Grants in NC for public school students to attend private schools where parents only have to pay a fraction of the cost. Our children will be attending private schools next school year. All children should be given a fair opportunity to learn in a hostile free and nurturing environment."
"My daughter started Gallberry this year in first grade. She has adjusted well, and loves her teacher. She is learning at an incredible rate. I have been very impressed with the community spirit and the ""Gator Gatherings"" that they have monthly. I've enjoyed watching my daughter be excited about learning."
