Ellsworth Elementary School 5

This is by far the best school my kids have been to. We moved to Arizona two years ago and we just enrolled them for the 2nd year and we couldn't be happier. The teachers, principal & staff are absolutely wonderful! The communication is great! Any time there has been an issue or a question, they have always been very good about coming to me and when i had a problem to address with the principal, she was very quick to respond and took care of the situation. I am so very happy that my kids attend this school and would 100% refer other people!

Amount of homework: Just right

With my child's disability, homework used to take hours because they did not understand the classroom homework and would sometimes not be in the classroom during practice time. Last year, the school implemented a new homework policy and my child was able to bring home both what the classroom was doing and work that she could complete and understand. This made our homework time go from a fight to enjoyable. The teacher was always willing to work with me and would accept what she was able to do.

Despite my child's disability, the students are always willing to interact with her and help her. They are always willing to be her reading buddy and help her complete AR tests, even if it means they might not get to take their test that day.

I have attended several honor assemblies and I can attest that the character pledge is said at everyone. All the students appear to know and recite it with enthusiasm.

The front office staff is always inviting and willing to answer questions and help. They have stopped what they were doing to find answers for me. The principal is always available to talk with parents and addresses any concerns immediately.

The teachers at Ellsworth really take the time to understand the needs of each student. I have a special needs child and the team worked really hard to ensure that every need she had was met. The classroom teacher went out of her way to work with me on any concerns I had. LOVE THIS SCHOOL!!!

Just a terrible bleak education environment. No activity for the children except some random makeshift events. Very unhappy definitely needs new leadership

Wish I could do more with the children but feel very limited. Not the best professional environment

The learning environment was discouraging. My wife and I were disappointed. Not a positive experience for my family.
