Community ratings & reviews

    This is the worst school I have ever gone to. The teachers sat by and allowed me to be bullied on a daily basis. They never stepped in once. Not when I was pushed down the stairs or stabbed in the eye. It even seemed like since I was poor the teachers favored some of the "wealthier" students so when an altercation did catch their eye I was always punished and it was always obvious I was the victim.

    The principal and the counselor are heartfelt and professional. The teachers are equally so. And it is obvious that the students there have a lot of spirit about their lives and school!

  • (4 years ago)

    it is a rural country school with a lot of comunity involvement.

  • (4 years ago)

    Most all of the teachers at Memorial Elementary truly care about their students and their education and most of the staff know each student by name!

  • (4 years ago)

    The school is it's own community with parents teachers and students working together to make this a positive learning environment. Many of these students come from lower income homes and they appreciate and love their teachers and parents.

    My daughter went to preschool here and is now in first grade. She was so shy and timid before starting preschool the teachers there have really helped to make her more confident around the other kids. Couldn't ask for a better staff for sure! Soda pop that is available daily is all and only diet. Ice cream has been removed several years ago )

  • (9 years ago)

    My ONLY complaint is that Soda Pop and Ice cream are available DAILY. This is contributing to our children being over weight. My granddaugther likes school for the FIRST time. She is in 6th grade. She is trying for a perfect attendance. You must be doing something right.
