    School sucks. seriously the teachers don't pay attention to what happens while there backs are turned and the kids who do good are the ones who get yelled at while the bad kids get off scot free

    Awesome awesome!!! I love this school for my child. I transferred my child from Charles Mooney and I have to say it is hands down best decision I have every made. My son is learning so much more and he seems to be happy and not frustrated. He tells me the teachers are nice and patient with him and they don not yell at him like they did at Charles Mooney. The office staff is fabulous and they help you with anything you need. The teachers care and they are wonderful to my son. I appreciated they give my son the attention that is needed. I am very please and at eased with the decision I made and so is my son.

    Denison Elementary is a great school dedicated to the students. I must say I am also happy that the uniform policy is in effect starting this year. It is for our kids safety. Thumbs up!

    I have two children who received a very solid foundation at Denison in a diverse and caring school environment. The teachers and principal are very committed to all the students and encourage parents to be more involved. Denison is a top-notch elementary school that delivers a high quality education!

    My son has attended Denison for the last three years and I am very impressed by the teachers and the great staff. His first year of school was taught by one of the finest teachers I have ever met not only did she do a great job with the students she always had time for the parents as well. She always made you feel welcomed. Ms. Busse made my son first year of education a postive and rewarding start of his future. Safety and Discipline was other major concern and I feel very secure sending my son there every day. I would recommend this school to any parent.

    My child was a kindergartener this past year and I was very pleased with his teacher and aide. I can't say enough good things about them. The principal is very involved with the children and parents. That's what makes this school so Great!

  • (12 years ago)

    I have 2 children and both went to Denison. I can not say enough good things about this school. My daughter was in the gifted classes and did wonderful. All the teachers and staff are so helpful and most parents are involved in the day to day business and I think that is why this school is so great!
