My daughter has thrived at this school! They encourage her and push her to be the best she can be. They don't avoid situations and they make it their business to handle any issues that arise. I wish they were more involved in the Box Top program. I think they would really benefit from it!

This is my daughter's first year at Donahoe. (Although I went to Donahoe when I was a child)However so far I have really been impressed with her teacher Mrs Karkosak. Also the school seems to be very organized with the coordination of art music and PE classes. When I went to orientation I believe they told me that the PTA involvement was very strong 90-95%. So I am excited about their plans for this school year.
My daughter has been going to this school for 2 years now and she absolutely loves it! The teachers and the principal really care about the students and as a parent I really appreciate it. We need more administrators and teachers that care so much. Thanks!
We have attened this school for 4 years now. I am so pleased with the teachers and principal. We have been provided a safe and great learning enviroment. The programs help all of the children grow and learn valuable life skills. Students are taught to believe in themselves and to dream big. Only 'greatness' can come with the positive attitudes expressed daily. Thank You for giving our child a wonderful start in life. Sincerly A Grateful Parent.
