Amherst Elementary School Reviews
When it comes to elementary schools, this one is top notch! From the leadership, to the staff of talented teachers, support personnel, and a rocking PTA, the students are surrounded by creativity and love every day! I hope all of my kids are able to attend school here and their kids too!
It is a constant battle with the Principal and teacher to get what my child deserves his education and respect. My child is adhd, odd and learning disabled. He has been labeled as a problem student. They do not allow private payed companies such as Helen Ross Mcnabb staff to enter their school. I know from experience and very unhappy that my child does not receive the care and understanding he deserves. Lots of "we will investigate" but never any results. I really am going to look for another school as this school does NOT meet my childs needs.
