This school is relatively small with a diverse population, teachers that care, and a supportive principal. Family are encouraged to participate and there is strong PTA support. There is a focus on technology, and extra curricular activities such as tutoring and clubs, and a school garden. When other schools lost their librarians this school kept theirs. My child, now in college, still lists one of the teachers here as her favorite of all the schools she attended. Office staff, yard duty, cafeteria staff, and some teachers are or were parents of students who attend this school or were even students here themselves. This is truly a community school.
This school was not a good fit for our family at all. While we loved the garden and technology aspects to the school we did not feel like the needs of our child were being met. Not every child fits a specific mold and there was little to no flexibility in this school.
This is a fantastic school with some of the most caring, compassionate teachers I've ever seen! The principal is involved and just awesome! The library is well-used, and even open every Thursday evening for families to come and spend time together. They have a great garden and nature area. The teachers even set special challenges for students who are ahead of the rest of the class. My daughter was never more motivated and happy when attending this school. Only because we moved, did we have to leave. This is a school you can place your trust in! It deserves more parents who would dedicate their volunteer hours - it would be such a gift to the school and students.
This is an excellent school with amazing teachers, support staff and parent participation! There can NEVER be enough parent participation and Erlewine has plenty of volunteers. I love how hard everyone works to make our school amazing.
This school is awesome. My daughter absolutely loves this school and her teacher. She talks about how much her teacher does for the class, and it pleases me to know there are teachers that still care. Even while he was out for surgery he kept in contact with the substitute daily. I am so pleased we decided to go against the grain and get her in school here. The rest of the staff is awesome too! The only thing left to say is, if you can send your kid here!
As a teacher and grandparent of students who attend Erlewine, I highly recommend this school. Great education, support for families, and caring staff--everything you would want in a school
O.W. Erlewine has great teachers and wonderful parents that care about the school. They offer the school library one day a week in the evenings to bring your child so you can check out a book. The teacher's make it fun to learn. We really appreciate the Sunday night calls from the Principle for an update of the following weeks activities.
The Principal is awesome in working with the children and their family. My children enjoy their friends and teachers. The yard duty staff at O.W. are awesome in every way you can think of. Thank you to all.
The teachers at all grade levels are consistently strong in each academic area. The school staff as a whole is focused on continually improving in all areas of instruction, climate and culture.
O.W. Erlewine has great teachers/faculty staff and principal who love what they do and care for our children.
O.W. Erlewine has so much to offer their students in and out of the classroom. From Eco Club to Gadrneing Club, to Chess Club and more. It's a real community school.
This school is awesome! The principal has worked with us and our son. My son has adhd, and they have been very accomodating to him as well. He had been to several schools before, and had many problems in the two other schools he had attended. We have never had a problem with him at this school! He loves it and the staff and especially the principal has been ver accomodating with us because he is in on a permit. What is even better is the amazing 4th R after school program he is in. Our son gets his homework done and it nice when you come to pick him up he dosent want to leave! It's a great sign that your child is happy!
My son attended Erlewine all 7 years, and my daughter is still there. I love this school. The principal is an amazing person who genuinely cares about her students,
O.W.Erlewine is an awesome school. My son has been at Erlewine since his kindergarten year he loves it and so do I. All the teachers and staff (afterschool included) are the best!!!
The P.T.A is so great and has done so much for the school. I see a lot of parents helping on a daily basis. I am so glad we moved just to switch to this school. I feel the teachers care about there students. My two kids have three great teachers. And this schools extra programs for the kids is awesome. The school we came from had no extra programs for the kids to do.The Principal is great she is very understanding and very involved in everything.
The staff at Erlewine is very dedicated to student success. PTA is very active and wide range of enrichment programs are available.
The teachers at this school are dedicated to the education of all their students and the office staff is very knowlegable and eager to help with issues concerning school or home. My two children have attended this school and I'm very happy with their progress.
My daughter has been in this school since 2001, having attended pre-school and kindergarten in the previous years, and attending the 1st grade now. Every teacher she has had was/is great. We simply could not be happier with the teachers, and also administration and the principal himself (who is very friendly and accessible). We consider ourselves lucky to live close to this school. There is a strong and active PTA, the place is safe, discipline is well maintained, and the most importantly, my daughter loves it!
