    These kids get one on on attention from the very dedicated staff at Memorial. The teachers really care about their students. It is more than a job to them.

    This school does not meet state standards. It has been listed for federal student help by the No Child Left behind Act but has shown little improvement if not being worse than the previous year. Teachers are lacking control in the classes and parents aren't notified until too late if there is a problem. My child is in 1st grade and she is having a problem this semester after getting straight A's last semester. Teacher has been singleing her out as well as a couple of other children and I was not notified of any problems until 4 months into the school year.

    Both of my children go to memorial. I had a choice to send them to school in their fathers district but i believe memorial has great teachers who really care about our children. They also have a high safety standard which helps me to feel safe sending them to school. I think they have a well rounded combination of curricular and extracurricular activities. Also there is a high level of parental invovlement and I really like that. my children love memorial and I would not send them anywhere else.

    Is a magical and wonderful school that nurtures the total child. The teachers are kind caring and intelligent. The environment teaches the children respect for each other and the greater community. The extracurricular activities include music art Italian/Japanese etc. The PE teacher is adored by the students (the outdoor play areas are segregated and designed by age group). This school is like having a private school for a public price. The parent involvement is tremendous which supplements the computer lab library etc. The best elementary school overall when you combine scores extracurriculars teacher quality and love and care.
