Ward Elementary School 5

I had my son transfer from a Montessori school to Ward elementary. My nice attending Ward from kindergarten and I was very impressed by the teacher and parent communication, and the principal Ms.Box involvement with both parent and students. Its a small school and it provides comfort that each student is accountable for. This will be my sons last year attending Ward and I'm saddened by the idea. Its not a surprise that Ward elementary rated a 8/10 the qualifications are very visible to the eye. Thanks to the teacher for doing such a great job and especially to Ms.Box for her dedication.

The teachers at Ward are very dedicated to each child's learning. Teachers have a great parent/teacher communication. The principal is always available to answer any concern and she motivates these kids like any great principal would. The office staff are super friendly & helpful. We have a great group of PTA moms who keep us informed & plans events for the families

Ms. Box is an active & enthusiastic principal. So great with the kids. Mrs. Graves (Kindergarten) is a very traditional teacher & strict with the children for all the right reasons. Remember, the path of your child's education starts at the beginning & start it off right!

My daughter is studying 3rd Grade in this school. The class teacher is taking care and working hard for the prosperity of her students in both curricular and extra curricular activities. The School is flourishing in all aspects under the well organised leadership of the Principal. My daughter is very lucky to study in this school.
