Farmdale Elementary School Reviews
I had to change school for my children a year ago, and believe me, we miss Farmdale Elementary School so much. The staff and teacher were wonderful, and I wish my children were still in Farmdale. The new school has no soul and does not care of the children's emotions at all. So sad to have left Farmdale!
My opinion about farmdale... Farmdale tries to help everyone, the students and the parents. They have so many helpful programs that I see parents don't go to. Farmdale has helped my husband and I with parenting and have given me a lot of helpful ideas that I use to help my son improve in his learning and I have also applied it with my younger son witch I am satisfied with doing. I have seen great progress in my children. I am very pleased with the programs at Farmdale Elementary School and all the staff there are very nice and willing to help you in anything they can.
I think the staff at Farmdale Elementary don't put all of their students' needs before their own. I also think that the trouble makers get the most attention instead of the ones that really need it.
