Paul Munro Elementary School Reviews
So sorry that Gilford's daughters were not challenged. Paul Munro Elementary offers many opportunities for gifted students and enrichment for all students. It has been my experience that the teachers are interested in encouraging and promoting education for all students - not just those who are struggling. Through AR, online math competitions and web sites, writing contests, plays, after school enrichment, Girls on the Run, science fair, etc., students have many opportunities in and out of the classroom.
I find Paul Munro to be a very upclose and personal school. I know all of the teachers, they all know who I am, and my son hasn't had most of them. I love the feeling that I can visit anytime, and just spend the day in my son's classroom and give his teacher a hand with her schedule if necessary. They have changed the way my son looks at school! He is an amazing kid who has ADHD, and the staff has been understanding and willing to work with his situation. I feel lucky that we are a part of the Paul Munro Pride.
My two daughters were not challenged at all. This is a Title 1 school and their main focus are on the children that have disabilities more so than the children that are motivated but this resulted in our daughters suffering academically. This is a school that holds to the slogan No Child Left behind but I think they should say they adhere to Most Children Left behind program.
I think this is a great school. They teach the children how to respect each other and to reach the goals they have. I like the way they let the parents know if a child is not reaching their goals. The teachers do love the children and they care what happens to the child.
