I could talk all day about how great this school is, from the teachers,to the students to the parents , to the girls in the cafateria to Mrs. Peach our principle. Small school with the best teachers in town always going above and beyond! Its no surprise we are always rated an "A" school
Alice Byrne is a wonderful school that is filled with caring teachers and administrators. The school truly is receptive to the parent's feedback and is proactive in finding solutions to enhance student learning. Ms. Spratt is a wonderful example of personal attention to each child's learning style. Alice Byrne is just the right size! My daughter is not one of over 800 students. The school has a familial feel and kids are held accountable for how they treat others. Bullying and disrespect are nipped in the bud and communicated to parents in a timely manner. I would highly recommend this school and am grateful for being a part of a great community of learners.
Admittedly we were not excited about moving to Yuma from our Excelling school in TX..but I ended up loving AB even more than our old school & any school EVER!!. Its hands down the best in Yuma. It definitely has a small town feel that is something we really enjoy. I have 3 kids who go here and we always feel like we lucked out and got the best, most special teacher ever with each of them. Mrs. Valenzuela in K, Mrs. Trevino in1st (who is taking Mrs. Fenzels place in 4th next year), MRS. HAZEN in 2nd, Mrs. Castel Branco in 3rd, and Mrs. Fenzel in 4th. (sadly Mrs. F is leaving but happily its to raise her new family) The teachers are really on top of your childs progress and honestly care about the kids and always sees that they are being challenged or if they are struggling they go the extra mile with them. Very professional and competent... you'd think they were being paid enough! I am already dreading when my son will have to leave year after next since elem. school ends in 5th grade there. Awesome program of Kinderbuddies for K & 4th, many fun field trips , Mustang of the Month program really gives them confidence and something to strive for. Active hard working PTO,
Alice Byrne deserves 10 stars! This school is a family environment where each child is encouraged daily to succeed their individual goals. The staff and principal value each child and the kids feel important. My children have enjoyed A.B. and are above levels in learning due to the dedicated teachers that LOVE their jobs. Thank You Alice Byrne!!!
Professional staff, caring administrative personnel. great teachers!
My granddaughter attends Alice Byrne School. She has loved every minute of it since Kinder-garten with Mrs. Ferguson, Mrs. Spratt in 2nd grade, Mrs. Moreno in 3rd grade, all the way through to 4th grade! I love hearing and seeing her learn new things every week, and am so proud that she is reading at a 9th grade level! WOW! Her lst and and 4th grade teachers (I can't remember their names) have also been awesome! - they each gave her 'independent reading projects' to work on at home! I am amazed at how she has grown through the years in speed and comprehension in all her subjects and, even more, in self-confidence, which she most definitely has learned in her classes! Way to go, Alice Byrne! (And by the way, the Principal herself is 'way beyond the norm!' She is a 'model' for all other Principals to follow!) Thank you!-You're a gem! 'Grandma Ruby'
Three of our children, and many of our nieces and nephews have attended Alice Byrne. The commitment of the teachers and support staff is very helpful to the students in achieving excellence in academics as well as extra curricular activities. This is an excellent school.
My daughter has attended Alice Byrne since 1st grade. I can't say enough great things about this school. They welcomed us warmly and it has been this way for 4 yrs and my daughter is now going into the 5th grade, and I wish she could just stay. I am a volunteer nearly every day and if they will have me I will continue to volunteer even after my daughter goes to middle school. What an awesome school and staff. Thank you, Joyce Snyder Parent
Two of my children attend Alice Byrne. We requested to transfer to this school because we heard good things about it. The office staff is courteous and learned our kids' names quickly. Mrs. Clark (Kindergarten teacher) has been excellent at communicating with us and has handled our son's education extremely well. Ms. Spratt (2nd grade teacher) has also been very attentive to our daughter's educational needs, ensuring she is challenged. My children love music, art, and especially PE. I love this school and would recommend it to anyone.
Excellent principal. Small group of very involved parents. Small community feel. All the teachers know almost every student. Safe, clean environment. Good academics. No after school programs. Mrs. Clark in K is awsome!
Alice Byrne is the 'Best' school! The entire staff there is extremely knowledgeable and knows all the kids by name. It is the last of small schools now days but very close knit. This school really cares about my childrens education. I wouldn't want my kids to go anywhwere but Alice Byrne School.
Alice Byrne is an exceptional school. I have been involved with this school for 4 years now and have two children currently attending. This school has a high level of parental involvement. I volunteer at least one morning a week. I am always made to feel welcome and appreciated. It is obvious that the students are valued, respected, and loved. I don't feel like any students fall through the cracks here-- the teachers continually go beyond the call of duty to meet the students' individual learning needs. It is well-known throughout the community that this is a caring school with exemplary academics. There is an ideal balance of a warm, family environment and an excellent academic curriculum. I am proud that my children attend here. My children love it, too!
This school has become such a disappointment, that I'm getting my kids out of there while their education is not completely lost. Very sad situation.
my two boys have gone to Alice Byrne Elementary School since 1998.The last few years have increasingly been more and more of a disappointment.THe last two years for my son have been very stressful.No organization,from his teacher.Not any clear indication that anyone even cares.The warmth of previous years is not there.The homework is way too much.My youngest son certainly did not have nearly the caliber of teachers that my older son was lucky enough to expierience.An unfortunate end to my childs last year of elementary school.It's hard to even get him out the door in the morning anymore.
I currently have three children attending Alice Byrne Elementary, one has already graduated. Alice Byrne is a wonderful school. The staff and prinicpal know all the kids names and treat them with the utmost respect. The teachers go out of their way to meet the individual needs of each student. Because of the small size of the school, it truly feels like a family environment. There is a diverse population of children from all socio-economic levels. The staff sets a high standard for the students to achieve and in return gives the students the support needed to accomplish that. Mrs. Peach, the prinicpal, is hands on and on a first name basis with all the kids. She is frequently on the playground, in the cafeteria, and in the classrooms. She does an outstanding job in motivating both her staff and the students. I would highly recommend Alice Byrne school to anyone.
