My family has had some significant challenges this past year. I ve reached out to the assistant principal may times to assist us and she been there every step of the way. She has truly helped my child and my entire family. I ve called her countless times including evenings and weekends and she s always available to us. I m very grateful to her and the entire staff.

I have a Child in Elm Place and overall School location and programs are great but School Teachers are very hard to reach and they have a real problem with returning phone calls and follow up with Parents regarding Studens progress. Assistant Principal is always rude over the phone and we always have to make sure to bypass her in order to get proper information's or/and guidande regarding our Children. It will be very benefical for Elm Place to replace few Teachers with few that really cares about Kids well beeing and education.
The school is very well organized has excellent teachers and feedback from students is positive because of the attitude of the principal. There is no sign of disfunctional kids and I have never heard of any violent incidents at the school. Stdents are well behaved and generally courteous and respectful. This total positive impression is the result of the dedication of the school staff and the phylosophy of the principal and superintendent
i think this school is the greatest school i have ever seen in my life!!!! )
My son goes to this school and he loves it. In my opinion its the best school i've ever seen in my whole life! they have great teachers some are strict though. Some are very young and nice. Elm place gives a child a great learning and social experience!
Many teachers are wonderful at Elm Place School. The Parent Teacher communication though is severely lacking and frequently the children are disciplined or pulled out of class without the parents knowledge.
