I have found this school to be very disorganized, and the principal has not been very disrespectful. We have been very disappointed at our experience at Ellis.
My son is going into the third grade. He began going to Ellis since he was a kinder. We have had great experience and great teachers. And the principle is a very kind and nice person and she's very sincere about her positon.
Ellis is really a very good school. All Fifth grade teachers are very responsible and hard working in every aspect.
My son is in 1st grade. His teacher is very active with the children. The PTO is very active too and works to supplement what the district and state don't provide to the school or teachers. In the last year, they've placed new ELMOs in rooms, spend money on really neat school assemblies, and are active in creating a family culture with in the school.
The Staff is Ok, however the school is dirty and rundown. If the School was in better shape I would give it another star
my kid is a kindergartner and her confidence has improved alot here.Ms.Johnson is a wonderful teacher who loves all of her kids.i am thankful to her.
My daughter is in kindergarten and she just can't wait to go to school every morning.Mrs Osinek is an excellent teacher and gives individual attention to each student. The school also offers good music and art programs.We are very much satisfied with this school.
Ellis is an excellent school with wonderful, highly qualified teachers. My daughter is in 4th grade this year and loves her teacher! I am pleased with their API scores and the parent organization has become very strong over the years.
My daughter is in Kindergarten and has had an excellent year as far as trasition and accepting the role of 'student' in the classroom. We are very pleased to have her at Ellis since there are other family members who have attended Ellis over 20 years ago.
My son will be entering the 5th grade in the Fall of '06. He has benefited from excellent teachers in every grade at Ellis. We have been extremely satisfied with Ellis. The kids are great kids. The principal sets a tone of respect for others. My son loves attending Ellis.
Although every school has bad teachers, ellis has very few bad teachers. Fifth grade staff is excellent.
I was raised in S'vale & attended Cumberland Elementary, S'va Jr. High and then Homestead High. My daughter is a kindergartner at Ellis and I am astonished and grateful as to the parent-teacher involvement. The communication between all of the school staff, parents and students is very evident and the endless efforts to continue a higher education along with providing arts & music really makes a lasting impression in the students. The diversity is embrassed by all and my experience thus far has been great. I anticipate nothing less from Ellis School in the coming years. Julia
This school is very accomodating to my daughters needs. The teachers listen to the parents and have good ethics.
Very good school. My child attended K and 1st grade at this school when we lived in California. Even though it was for only 2 years, she enjoyed going to school everyday. Liked her teachers very much especially her kindergarten teacher.
A very good school. You should not have second thought in getting your child admitted there.
My son just started Kindergarten, but the parent & teacher involvement at the school appears to be quite good, with a strong turnout for PTO meetings and school fundraising events. There is music available through trained volunteers through the Music for Minors program, but no specific arts instruction as part of the curriculum, and that is unfortunate.
Great teachers, individualized attention to every students, those that are slower in academic and those who are advanced will get accelerated curriculum.
Good academic programs including ESL students extra help. Better music art and sports for all levels of students and it also includes different nations and cultural programs. Also gives opportunities for parent involvement in above activities
Ms.White is great teaching reading to First graders. Ms. Faiaipu is a good Fourth grade teacher. School not good with extracurricular activities. Parent involvement allowed.
