Summerdale was one of the worse schools I've ever had to deal with. Best move was moving my child from that school and paying for him to attend private. Front office staff was rude and so glad that I never have to deal with them again!

I am very pleased that my son is attending Summerdale school, he went to kindergarten there;home work , ST math and RAZ kids all those things help a child completely understand everything they learn not just superficial knowledge. My sons teacher Miss Gee was very nice and her way of teaching was very good, I am so glad that my kids are getting private school kind of education but free of any tuition from Summerdale elementary.

Our children are very happy at Summerdale. We have a 2nd grader and a 5th grader. The are both challenged with the work and I feel that I have great access to the teachers and the Principal. This school doesn't just say they care about the children, they show it it how they teach and work with the community. Excellent school.

The Teachers, Principal and the staffs are wonderful here at Summerdale! My son was transferred from another school and he just loves going school here. I help out in class once a week and love the dedication from the teachers and how organized they are. They plan out their day and always on top of things.

Love the school! My daughter is in 2nd grade, and this is her 1st year at Summerdale. We are pleased with the ciriculum and the extra-curricular activities. The principal is very approachable and amiable. The after-school rec is also an awesome program and it's free!

I believe in great success for all students whom attend Summerdale Elementary. I have 5 boys and 3 of them have been to a few different Elementary schools. I can honestly say that Summerdale is the best school for us thus far. The teachers are great. The principal is more then accomodating. She is very soft spoken and just handles everything. She is amazing. I give her a lot of credit for the work she accomplishes and how she goes about doing it. Let's just say that the Summerdale staff is a great bunch of people. They show much concern and see to it that the students learn their cirriculum. The PTA is not real big but we get the job done. The parents that do get involved I want to say Thank You. I am very greatful to be a part of Summerdale School.

My child attended a summer pre-kindergarten program. I'm glad that this program was available to her, as it helped her to adjust to the school, teachers, and a routine of going to school. The kindergarten teachers were very nice to her and seemed knowledgeable. The school, though going through renovations, seemed to be very inviting as well.

The quality of academic programs is up to par especially regarding educational areas in music, sports and other extracurricular activities. The parents are highly involved what quality of education their children receive.

I really enjoyed Summerdale Elementary as a young boy because the teachers and staff were always so heartwarming in their profession. Its hard to find quality teachers that care about their students the way that the staff at Summerdale does. They really showed me they cared and wanted me to succeed. If I needed help, they would set aside some time in order to help me understand what the subject in which I was struggling. Also, the teachers became more than just teachers to me, they became one of my parents. They acted as though I was one of their children (in essence I was/am) and they taught each of us from the heart...not just from the book. Summerdale is an extrodinary school that has beyond and out of the ordinary to teach wonderful students with wonderful teachers.

I liked Summerdale for my child. She learned alot and the teachers were all great. I felt like this school was a very positive stepping stone to her future years of school. Everytime I went to parent's night or the awards ceremony, I seen a lot of parents there. My daughter played violin there also; but she did not do any sports except what they did in pe. She is now in 6th grade and she still misses her teachers and the principal at Summerdale.

Excellent school! teachers, and staffs are immaculate! my first grader daughter started this school with limited reading knowledge. Within 3 months, she's a reader. School principal, mr. Kin, is very caring and great with the students. Every school should have caring teachers and principal like summerdale elem. I'm glad my children attend summerdale school. Go summerdale!

Summerdale School is an excellent little school that is in the process of growing. It is a good thing that the school is small because it gives the teachers more of an oppurtunity to interact with my children. I am a mother of 6 and all 6 of my children have attended Summerdale School. My youngest 2 are still attending there (5th and 7th grades) I am very satisfied with Summerdale School and they need to keep up the good work!

I was very disappointed with the school year 2002-03 for my 3rd grader. I asked him what he learned, he said nothing. He was not challenged, his homework was very easy. He went 5 to 6 weeks without any home work. I had to make him do additional work at home to keep him from getting lazy.
