Is a A+ school as of 2013 has many things to provide students. Sports teams, band / orchestra / OMA, updated computer lab,and the entire campus was redone by the U of A in 2011. Students like their teachers and care for them like their own kids.
My school is a wonderful place to work. We work as a team and support one another!!!
Sewell provides great environment for learning. Students are held to high academic standards as well as given many opportunities for personal growth. Students are encouraged to participate in music and athletics.
Sewell is an "A" school with educators who are extremely dedicated and committed to student success. It is a pleasure working in such a positive environment. We collaborate to guarantee students achieve beyond their highest potential. Sewell is a Ben's Bells kindness school with some of the most respectful students. Children support each other and are understanding of individual differences. Sewell is also an OMA school which offers many unique musical and creative opportunities throughout all grade levels. The sports program is top notch, along with the rigorous academics. I wouldn't want to work anywhere else!
Sewell is a great school in so many ways! It has wonderful teachers and staff members. Sewell challenges students to high academic standards and expectations! The principal is well liked, and holds teachers to high expectations themselves! The sports program is one of, if not, the top elementary program in TUSD! Students enjoy coming to Sewell!
Love it! So many opportunities for my son- sports , academics - we got it all here! We were transplants from a closure - but earned our keep last year !! Such a family for public school - absolutely LOVE Sewell ! Watching my boy grow in this environment is priceless! Proudest Mom ever
All my three sons have atttended Sewell Elementary (one is in high school, one in middle school and one is still at Sewell) and I can't praise Sewell enough for the quality of education and extra curricular activities it offers its students. From Opening Minds through the Arts to community involvement such as partnering with a nearby retirement community, to sports and more.. .the students are getting a well rounded education and learning to be good, productive members of their communities. IT's also a Ben's Bells Kindness school so kindness is at the core of everything the kids do and learn. The staff and administration and amazing. The principal is visible at all times, knows the kids' names and they know him. It truly is a model school in TUSD, one that I would highly recommend to anyone looking for a top-notch school for their kids. We love Sewell and are proud to be members of the Sewell Family!
This school has been a hidden gem in the midst of all the troubles with TUSD. We have barely noticed any of the district's problems due to the wonderful teachers my boys have had at this school. The OMA program has a terrific director who genuinely cares about each student and exposes them to different cultural arts. The principal is always present and available among the students and kids. Awesome learning environment.
The preschool at Sewell Elementary is amazing! I love the kind and caring teachers, staff and students. The OMA program at Sewell encourages self-expression and builds artistic abilities.
My granddaughter attends Sewell and I am so impressed overall with this School. I am very involved in volenteeering and such. She experiences lots of perks and field trips they have a great system to keep students on track and the teachers are wonderful! Basically Take Care of yourself, Take Care of Others and Take Care of Your School. I Love this school and feel she learns in a comfortable but academically based atmosphere. Thumbs up for Sewell!
My daughter is in the Autistic class for Sewel, and has been for the past 3 years. She has made so much progress the past 2 years with Lisa Larabee. Sadly, Ms. Lisa will not be at Sewel next year. But I'm hoping that my daughter will adjust and do well with her new teacher also. All of the staff at Sewel is very friendly. And it seems they make it a point to get to know as many of the students as they can. Each and every time I have gone to the school, they all know my daughter and always say hi to her. She loves going there. And she is very proud to be a 'Sewel Sabercat'. She earned an award of Student of the Quarter and was so excited when she received a Sewel t-shirt. She wears it all the time. Academically, she has advanced very well.
Our first-grader really likes Sewell. His teachers (K and 1st) have been very supportive and helpful. He is reading and writing well above his grade level, and has been on field trips all over town (the zoo, a hospital, two plays, a science fair, etc.) The OMA program has gotten him involved with singing and music. There isn't as much parent involvement as one would hope. The same small group shows up for field trips and other activities, and the PTA is always hurting for active members. However, the annual Fun Fair and other fund raisers seem to be well-attended.
My son is currently attending his 3rd year at Sewell Elem and we have had a very positive experience each year.We recommend this school to anyone looking for a stimulating learning environment for their child.
