    "Sad! I had such high hopes for this school. A lot of things were promised, few things were delivered. There is no consistency, the administration is horrible. Some teachers are great and genuinely care, some are just filling a seat. Their recent "security" measures have turned a public school into a military academy. I am all for security but I believe they have gone too far. As with most small towns, if you know the right people, you will be treated well and the ridiculous rules will not apply to you or your children and your child will get the best teachers. Enter at your own risk. If you have a choice, make a better one."

    "This school is a mixed bag. There are some great teachers and others that are there for a paycheck. Communication is bad and the technology is even worse. 2 gym teachers and no technology teacher . . . should I say more. Just check out their website . .or lack of. This school has potential. They need some better administration to get there."

    "First having our child tested for early admittance for kindergarden was a great choice. After 2 years of Preschool it was suggested and the school approved. What they didn't tell us is that the scores must all be exceptional over the 100 percential. One scaore was a 98 and our child was rejected. Now straight A's in first grade he is being held back and taught at a level lower than his ability to keep him with the class. He does times tables and won't be allowed to test above adding 5 apples plus 4 apples. It's a disgrace to my child and the school district."

    "As a teacher in another district, as well as a parent of a Charleroi student, I'm pleased with her learning environment. Her teacher is open to communication. Living with both sides of education gives me different perspective. Any school in an area, like Charleroi, where there is a mix of economic backgrounds is going to have challenges. It is hard to make advancements when there is not readily available funding to do so. However, I was happily surprised during a visit to her classroom, they have more technology available (and they use it!) for their learning process in Kindergarten than I do teaching 8th grade in a different part of the county. Everyone from school board to building staff is working to use every opportunity and every resource they can find to provide the best experiences for our kids. It's also my job as a parent to support and enhance that."

    "Nearly all of our children's teachers have been responsive to our questions, attentive to each student's needs and were willing to work with us to get through subjects that our children found to be difficult. In sum, the Charleroi Elementary Center teachers have exceeded our expectations. The choir and band programs are exceptional, with dedicated instructors. The library contains more books than many public libraries, and the accelerated reader program kept each child focused on reading throughout the school year. We have observed that there is room for improving the level of parental involvement in PTA, classrooms and Junior Achievement. As we consider rating our school, what grade should we give ourselves?"
