    This school is amazing. We love the art/dance/music programs and classes we love that our kids get to be on stage regularly. The parent involvement is awesome and the PTA this year was incredible. The principal goes above and beyond her job descriptions and has memorized EVERY SINGLE CHILD in the entire school. She knows who the kids are who the parents are and remembers the activities and things they've done during the school year. I really can't give this school a high enough rating.

    Chirstine Donnell School Of the Arts is an outstanding school that I call home... and have since it opened in 1st grade! At Donnell I have learned so much about life and that to fit in its always best to be yourself! I have gone to school here since 1st grade... and it greatly disappoints me that next year for eighth grade I wont be able to attend because the school district says we cant have eighth grade anymore... ( I wish there was a way that the next students could remember me the way Im always going to remember Donnell and all the great teachers and friends I had there! This school is definetly the best school you will ever find especially for a very art-oriented person like myself! So I would like to say that unless your looking for a boring old same-old same-old school Donnell is THE place to be! there is no way I would ever change my years there! this school... is.... amazing! I cant think of enough words to describe it!!! but one word that comes as close as it gets would have to be PHENOMENAL!

    I have a child in third grade at Christine Donnell. My child was behind in reading and math. I had asked to have tests run to find out where she was having problems and to see where we could improve. After asking for a year the tests were never done. We enlisted outside help and got to the bottom of the problem that my child was having at which point the school asked us to have the results so they could now help her. I should have never had to go to the lengths I had to to get my child help. I could not be more disappointed in a school and would not recomend puting your child in this school.

    Christine Donnell School of the Arts is a magnet school for K-8. My sons have been going since the year it opened (2nd grade to current 7th). It is held to the same standards as any public school but the curriculum is taught with a strong emphasis on the Arts (music drama visual art) as well as encourages better leadership skills.

    I have 2 children at this school. One in 2nd grade and one in 6th grade. I have been most impressed with the teachers their teaching methods and the warmth of the staff. They have done some fun and interesting art projects. Overall this school provides an excellent environment for learning and the teachers are involved and engaged with the students.

    This school rarely cares about the middle school kids that are there.We get no game nights party dances events not even a good lunch! This school could do alot to make the Middle school kids feel more like a Jr.High.

    Christine Donnell School of the Arts is a school where the children come first. Each child is encouraged to do their personal best without being labeled. The teachers are highly skilled and work hard to bring out the best in each child. The principal is wonderful and caring and knows each child by name. She is a great example of a leader. Thank you Christine Donnell for bringing out the best in our children and giving them the encouragement and confidence they need to go out into the world!
