James H Boyd Elementary School Ratings & Reviews
I've had 5 children go through the district and, sad to say, Boyd is the weakest building. The principal is a "yes woman," there is an anti-bullying policy in name only, and while there are some excellent teachers, most are average, at best. There is a general culture of mediocrity among staff that has been impossible to crack for years. Unfortunately, the children suffer. Students leave the school unable to write an essay or a basic report and core subjects such as social studies and science are often overlooked in order to prep for the all-important NYS test.
My my child started out OK. Then after three months my child started to have problems. Problems were not rectified by the teacher or the principal. My child continued to have problems into the next year of fourth grade. Which caused problems not only with this child but my other child in another school. It was like there was never a time when my child had no problems on their hands.
My family has relocated here a few years ago. My daughter exceeded at this school and my son was in the middle school and needed some services, so I know both sides. The school system is very much on top of their game. The teachers, parents and coaches are very involved witht he kids. My experience has been great here and the families have made us feel very much at home. The music department is great..my daughter learned the flute in band and plays very well. My son is into the sports program and loves it. The MS and HS has won many championships. I think the reason this district has exceeded is because they are a smaller district and the kids don't get lost in the system. They are very much on top of their game . A great place to live..... GO ELWOOD!!!
