I love this school, I had my doubts in the very beginning but my doubts changed big time my son has been going there is the first grade he is now going to 5th and my daughter started KG there and is going to the 2nd grade, I can't ask for a better school, the staff definitely cares about the students there and the principal is the best, and if he child is going to be in ESE depending on the grade your child is in, miss Williams ESE is one of the best teachers, my son has came a long way from being in her class she has taught him so much, but seriously if your school zone for that school its definitely a great school to go too..

I am a homeschool mom who is considering returning her children to public school. Combee Elementary is the school my children will be going to. In searching I have found many negative comments about this school, including poor teachers/violent-harrassing kids. It does steer you away, but then you look at the free lunches...you look at the percentage and compare it to the state average. Many parents, unlike the higher scoring schools, have parents that work and are unable to volunteer their time to help out the schools. Schools like Mckeel Elemtary have a high number of parent involvement, according to their website/parent reviews. I intend to send my children to Combee-and get involved. (and to those who say, 'my childs teacher treats her badly. If you're involved in the school, and are always there, they'll go the extra mile to be nice to your kid!)
