    The teachers are enthusiastic and supportive. My son is in 3rd grade. His experience in Kindergarten through 2nd grade has been wonderful and looks like 3rd grade is also going to be excellent. Love the parent involvement

    Our son is currently in first grade at Navy Elementary (NE). Our experience so far has been wonderful. Our son's teacher Ms. Adams is excellent. I believe this is her first year teaching first grade. She taught other grades before. Our son loves her! She keeps him engaged and interested. Every day when he comes home from school he's excited about telling us something new he learned. The school does a good job staying engaged with parents through the PTO. They have man after school activities. Our son particularly likes his acting class. They recently organized a very successful and much fun fundraiser. The kids from all grades had loads of fun. The principal Mr. Coch is very responsive and courteous. We emailed him before school started when we first moved to the area. He invited us to the school. He told us about the school's programs and plans and showed us around. He then walked our son to his soon-to-be classroom which we appreciated. All in all our son is having a great experience at NE. We're happy with his progress socially and academically and look forward to many more years at NE.

    Our son attended kindergarten and first grade at Navy. His KG teacher was enthusiastic and had a lot of fun activities. However he did not learn how to read or write any better than he could when he started. His first grade teacher was an inflexible disciplinarian and my son began to hate school and act out. The administration was unresponsive to our concerns.

    Navy is a wonderful school with opportunities for challenging and competitive academics. Ms. Hand was absolutely great. After school activities are average. Overall a great school for the kids.

    Navy is a well-run school but the Principal Mrs. Hand is leaving this summer so who knows what it will be like in the future. It's a very structured school (meaning there are lots of rules to follow) which is good if your child responds to structure. It's an academically challenging school and there is plenty of participation from parents. There aren't however a lot of after school activities.

    I have 2 children at Navy and we are in our 3rd year at the school. Yes it is on a busy street but that's the nature of the area not the school's fault. I find there is a real sense of community at the school and families are very involved. From my experience most teachers have been wonderful and curriculum is very good. School has been remodeled and has many of the new bells and whistles from Smartboards to Computer lab. Overall I really have been pleased and have no real complaints other than some of the office staff which can be hit or miss depending on their mood.

    The school location is on a crowded street and staff are not so friendly. My daughter used to go there and we didn't like the school bus. She is now in a different school. Thank god!

    It is a non-walking school located on a busy road. The principal is very energetic and greets many of the children by name. Parents are involved in helping in classrooms and thru the PTA. The PTA president keeps parents in touch via email AND things sent home via folders. Senior Dolphins (older citizens) are also involved in helping at the school. Teachers are enthusiastic and the children don't want to miss a day of school. The morning begins with an in-house news broadcast to each room. Dolphin Discovery provides afterschool learning expansions--such as gardening and science. Until construction is complete scouts meet offsite.
