    Isreal Putnam has a wonderful special education program and an awesome p.t.o. The staff at this school really care and make their best effort to help parents and students.

    Security is horrible 5th graders guard the doors Dr G is never around moving my daughter to a safer more secure school where teachers actually teach the student.

    Teachers are very pro active... Our child is in Kindergarten and the class size is small ( 18 kids). Very secure and very clean.

  • (4 years ago)

    Teachers work hard but don't seem to get much support or supplies. Principal is not usually found during lunch recess dismissal or arrival.

    Hello We are parents of three children that are assisting to Israel Putnam. We love to see our children happy every day when they go to school and the most important thing when they arrive home the smile is always in their face they love the school and their teachers they have fun they are enthusiastic learners and that it is something that we need to share with the school's staff. Keep doing your job the children love it. Hector and Martha E.
