    Double Tree is a wonderful place for any child to learn. Teachers go out of their way to help each child any way they can there are numerous programs for children to participate in and classrooms not only focus on academics but also on community and respect. I have been extremely happy with this school.

    This school is one of the worst schools in Memphis. I am gravely disappointed in the staff and curriculum. The staff prioritizes students based on their preference. The kids are unruly and scrupulous. The curriculum is outdated and essentially useless. My son is the teacher's aide and during class he acts as a tutor/helper and I know that helps to reinforce his learning and prior knowledge but he is not acquiring any new material/knowledge.

    For anyone to write something negative about the best school in the whole wide world is absurb. Any wrongdoings or misguided opinions about Double Tree School faculty and staff should require you to take a look at yourself. The teachers at Double Tree are all highly qualified and very well emerged into the MCS curriculum. They teach the total child. They provide a safe haven for the childen. And aslo make learning alive fun and worth the while. I am so very glad I selected this school as my school of choice. I am a Dolphin and proud of it.

    Double Tree Elementary is a well rounded school. The faculty as well as the satff takes an interest in the children academically as well as socially. Students are given the opportunity to display their talents in and outside of the classroom. Parents are welcomed to help in the classroom. Teachers give of themselves before and after school. Double Tree is the best school in the whole wide world.

    Principal has poor management skills. Unprofessional and petty environment overall. School's agenda is mainly concerned with dance teams coronation fund-raising and after care instead of academics.
