Map of Downtown Elementary School address.

We consider ourselves very lucky to have our child at Downtown School. We love the fact that the school is so small - and that the students have the opportunity to grow up together. Awards Assemblies are great because the students not only have parents cheering them on, but their classmates parents as well! The attendance at school functions is always very high, and parents are very supportive of fundraisers. Our test scores are generally very strong. I am sure this is because of the tone set by Mrs. Rouse and the teaching staff. The kids understand that they are expected to achieve and Mrs. Rouse makes sure they have the resources necessary. Overall, I think any parent would be very happy with Downtown School.

Profile Completeness


Want to improve this school’s profile? You can!

All schools on GreatSchools begin with BASIC completeness, which includes important information like contact details and test scores. It’s up to the school community to take the next steps. As a parent or community member, you can share what you know with other families by writing a review or answering a few questions about what the school offers. As a school leader, you can upload photos, describe school programs, and more with an Official school profile.

The completeness meter moves to INTERMEDIATE, then ADVANCED, and finally HONOR ROLL as you complete the following: 10 or more reviews, at least 1 photo, and 9 program questions parents find helpful.
