    I had a great experience at Marrama . The teachers work hard and the adiministration is always available to support parents and students.

  • (6 years ago)

    We were very fortunate to have had such an attentive staff (Teachers & Principal) . The Principal was very personal and prompt when it came to a concern question or idea on the students academic improvement. I rate this school a 6. Based on the last reviwe I can believe they have improved with significance.

    It is challenging to ascertain the quality of the academic programs since the teachers spend at least one third of learning time having to discipline or quiet two thirds of the pupils. In the past two years that my child has attended this school it is obvious that learning is diminished by the overwhelming amount of time spent on discipline. Next year she will be attending private school. The class sizes permit gym only twice a week for 35 minutes. The children attend Music Art and Library/IT on a rotational basis every three weeks respectively. Each class is held twice a week. Opportunities for extracurricular activities such as chess drama and Spanish are available after school M-W. Parent involvement is virtually non existent with the exception of one parent tht volunteers daily in the second grade.
