This school is very well made, except for the fact they make VERY gross lunches that made me vomit, and their playground aids would put you in time out just for running. And the filthy bathrooms!!! This school for the most part is pretty good.

My kids were in Kindergarden and 3rd grade for the 12-13 school year. My 3rd grader had attended since 1st grade. We were in the Montessori program and loved loved loved it! Teachers were very friendly and allowed you to come to class whenever you wanted and to stay as long as you'd like. (They of course loved it when the parent helped out too.) I do think we should have changed teachers for my 3rd grader though, after 3 years in hindsight I don't think they were the right fit. Principle was great and knew many of the kids by name (in a good way, not because they were trouble makers). The office staff was very helpful and would ask or do anything that you needed or help set things straight. Was sad to move. We did not get to meet the new principle but I heard from a parent who helped to interview him that he should be great!

*If you are the parent of a child that is entering kindergarten for fall 2013* and you are thinking of the montessori program, DO NOT LET TERI BROWN BE YOUR CHILDS TEACHER! My daughter had her for 1/2 day kindergarten at Sunridge Learning Center. MS. Brown is still referred to as the meanest lady and my daughter can remember being glared at. She would give kids a treat if she blew up and got angry so that she could cover her tracks. She is a teacher that should retire from teaching small, innocent children. Prison Warden teaching GED would be more fitting. I am not writing this to be mean but I just dont want another child to be subjected to her because this should be a fun time in their education and it is heartbreaking for your 8 year old to wish that she could re-do kindergarten :(

My son has been attending the Montessori Program previously at the Sunridge Learning Center, and now on the Pomeroy Campus, for two years. His teachers were wonderful, caring and catered beautifully to his passion for writing and the arts, while also being very encouraging with his mathematics that he isn't quite so passionate about. We love the unique blend of students in his class, both the multicultural diversity and multi-age classrooms that promote student mentorship, socio-emotional growth, and a broader world perspective. I also appreciate the level of parent involvement seen in this program, as well as the principal's efforts in bringing" two schools" together into one building.

This is my daughter's second year in the Montessori program that moved this year to Pomeroy Elementary (the program now known as Pomeroy Montessori used to be Sunridge Learning Center and is now a "school within a school" at Pomeroy Elementary due to budget cuts). My daughter's teacher is fantastic, and she LOVES school and is thriving. She is reading well ahead of grade level and learns so much every day. Her class is culturally diverse and she is richer for it. If you're looking for a unique method of learning that focuses on your child's learning style and needs, the montessori program is tremendous. I pray that this program doesn't lose its identity and remains visible to the public for the excellent school that it is, and as its test scores show (see Sunridge Learning Center).

To My Students, Families, and Staff, It has been a pleasure to serve the Pomeroy Community over these last 29 years. You are my second family - My Pomeroy Family! When I started teaching my goal was to get kids off to a great start in their educational journey by loving to learn and to love coming to school each day. If I did that then I feel like I had a very successful career. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for sharing your beautiful children with me. With Love, Robyn Moody Retired Kindergarten Teacher

Wonderful school my daughter is currently in Mrs Petersons class 1st grade. Pomeroy has the best teachers, I have crossed city boundaries to be able to go to this school, my daughter is my third child attending this school. Principal, teachers and office staff are amazing. I love this school and what they have done for my family. Daniels Family

My son goes to Pomeroy elementary. He absolutely loves his past and present teacher; Mrs heideman, the music teacher, the principal , david from the after school program etc. I on the other hand seem to have this undisclosed problem with the staff. They are very rude to me. They don't say hi to me when I come in the front office. The staff will gladly speak to the people who come in behind me so its so obvious that they do not like me. I think it's petty so I smile at them. I continue to take my son there because the staff are good to him and he loves that school .

My son started in the second semester. The principal is extremely involved and has the children's best interest at heart. Problems are solved immediately. I did notice that there was a low level of parent involvement.

I have two children that attend Pomeroy. My youngest had the pleasure of being apart of Mrs.Moodys class. She is an outstanding teacher. Mr.Pascal is also wonderful,and very pationt.Our family dog was killed and he was very sympathetic with my son and took time out of his busy day to speak with my son and comfort him, and called a couple of days later to see how my son was doing.

My daughter started Pomoroy mid-school year. She was lucky enough to be enrolled into Mrs. Moody's class. My daughter was struggling with numbers and letter recognition. Within months, Mrs. Moody, had her on track with the rest of the class and she's even started to read. My daughter's attitude towards schools has also changed. Mrs. Moody greets each child in the morning with a smile and kisses their forehead good-bye at the end of class. She makes the kids feel safe, comfortable, and acknowledged. I'm so pleased that my daughter is able to have such a wonderful caring teacher; I feel blessed!

I went to Pomeroy many years ago and had the pleasure of being in Mrs. Moody's kindergarten class. After interning with her last year, (I am getting my teaching certificate) I remembered why. She genuinely cares about every child in her classroom. My daughter starts kindergarten this fall and I will try anything to cross school boundaries to give her the Mrs. Moody Experience. I also really enjoyed the overall atmosphere of the school. They still celebrate the holidays and have a great fall festival. What a great environment for children!

I think Pomeroy is a great school with dedicated teachers and support staff. I have received return calls from the principal and staff and they are calling form school and it has been fairly late at night. They love to have parents involved and they are so comitted to each and every student. I feel lucky to have my 3 children at Pomeroy!

Pomeroy is a wonderful school with an excellent, cohesive teaching staff. The only downfall is at times the class size is large.

My son was tested in 7th grade with a 3.5 reading average. I do not consider this to be acceptable. He was tested for Learning Disability in 5th but the school pyc said he was fine. I am not happy with the schools reading program. I am having to pay alot of money to get the help he needs to get him to the correct reading level. We did not know he failed all the end of the year tests until the end of 5th grade. Be sure to follow up regarding end of the year testing to make sure your child did not fall between the cracks as mine has.
