The Administration is amazing, The Parent Group is one of the best in the State. After school sports need improvement.

I think Downs is a great school, due to that they have after school activities for the eighth graders and they have the greatest teachers to which are very open to the parents and also for parents to be active in classroom social parties, or holiday gatherings. There principal very nice, you see her walking around all the time and when you pick up you child(ren) you see her outside watching how everything's going and her's nice enough to say Hi! I really like the eighth grade teachers, they're very caring when it comes the childrens performance and do anything they can to help them improve.

Too many students to one teacher. Thats the reason our school is not meeting its standards. Students are sent home to do their homework, and parents are sometimes not equipped to help their child. So therefore are sent to school with incomplete or wrong work. The spanish and english homework is together on the same paper?? Confusing to students, they should be separate.

My daughter is in Mrs. Shillin's room and I see why she loves her teacher. She is young and very caring. I know with what my daughter has learned in her room will continue with her forever. Now she wants to be a teacher just like, 'Mrs. Shillin'. Oh and she wants a policman like her husband, wehn she's a teacher. Cute and wonderful people.

I think Downs is a great school, it's small where you don't have to worry about so many kids. There are so many after school activities they have and they also have 'skate night' where the students, parents, and teachers go to a skateing ring just to have fun. The teachers are very open for parents to be active in classroom social parties, or holiday gatherings. There principal very nice, you see him walking around all the time and you pick up you child(ren) you see him outside watching how everything's going and he's nice enough to say Hi! I really like the kidergarden teachers, they're very caring when it comes the childrens performance and do anything they can to help them improve.
