    Test scores were SAD!! My 5th grader was not challenged at all this year.Basically its a glorified daycare. Last 2 months she was babysat by various subs and staff and watched movies...seriously. I brought the issue of her teachers attendance to the Principal and as I predicted NOTHING happened .She stated she was unaware. Really?? Her teacher(from the beg of the yr) Showed up maybe 2-4 days a week and at the end of the year took a month off. Communication with staff (all Staff) is poor. usually if u called the district u would get a call back. For my 4th grader all was wonderful her teacher ( a new teacher that year) was amazing .Art teacher also amazing . If these 2 ladies could be cloned and run this school Memorial would be a totally diff place!

    This school was a horrible place for my girls. I pulled them because my 4th grader was slapped in class by another student and continuously bullied. My children were not challenged academically here and in one year we had 4 seprate teachers as one quit after 6 weeks of school a sub for 6 weeks a replacement teacher who was put on medical leave and again a sub. The teachers I liked but the administration was lacking. Also the students were horriblly mean and out of control discipline problems were rampant. They failed to meet state minimums for the last two years. I would not send my child there for anything.

    Was a great school a couple years ago. The new principal Sarika Pride is the worst principal I have ever dealt with. Many of the teachers at her own school have no respect for her. She is selfish. phony and does not care about the children. I would seriously consider speaking with other parents before enrolling your child in this school as there are many parents who feel the same way.

    Memorial is one of the best schools. They went above and beyond to help both of my special needs children. Being a military family I hate for them to leave such a wonderful learning enironment so soon. It will be hard to find another school that compares.

    My son goes to this school and he loves it. The teachers are good and he is learning wonderfully.
