Maloney Magnet is a really good school. I am so glad my son is there! He has blossomed, what a difference from his previous school. It's not always about ratings. When your kid comes home happy, you know he's in the right place.

My daughter been in this school since kindergarten and I must say I love it! They teach the kids Japanese. My son was in another school and his grades weren't so great but as soon as he went to Maloney his grades were up there. There's not anything negative I could say about this school. I'm so happy my kids were blessed to attend this school.

My children come from a different town in to Waterbury to attend Maloney. We looked at all the different schools that they were able to attend and Maloney was by far the best. The academics they offer at this school are absolutely phenominal. We have not had a bad teacher yet and we have four children that have gone through the school. The administration is very caring and always on top of everything and will always make time to speak or work with you if you have a problem. I am very satisfied that we have selected this school for our four children to receive their elementary education through.

Maloney Interdistrict Magnet School is fantastic! My son is in kindergarten & he is receiving a top-notch education. I spent last spring touring every public/private elementary school in our area and Maloney stood out the minute I set foot in the front door. We are truly blessed to have made it through the lottery, since we live in Naugautck. My son's kindergarten teacher is exceptional: professional, loving, caring, an excellent educator, and she puts her heart & soul into every child. My son is excelling far faster than I could have ever imagined. The japanese program is also outstanding, with exceptional teachers there as well. This school has given my child the excitement & hunger to learn. I am confident,that this school will provide my child with the cornerstone of education needed to thrive/excell in this vast world. If you are considering schools, I highly recommend Maloney Magnet School.

As the extremely satisfied parent of two children who attended Maloney Magnet I felt I must write to show my appreciation for the excellent education and life experiences Maloney offered. My children not only excelled in all areas due to great teachers but loved every moment of their time at the school. I could write pages of praises about the staff and their overwhelming devotion and desire to have these children be the best they can be not only as students but as citizens. The science program and Japanese Language programs were outstanding. Unfortunatley we had to relocate out of state and their was not one elementary school I looked at that even came close to what Maloney stands for and has to offer. My children are both very far ahead in their new schools. If you have the chance to send you child there do not miss the

I think Maloney is a great school. My son started in the Preschool program and his teachers were wonderful. My child learned so much and his behavior improved while attending Maloney. His teachers were a big help. I'm looking forward to him attending the Kindergarten program.

I think that Maloney Magnet interdisctrict school in Waterbury, CT, is the greatest school. My daughter is learning Japanese as a second language in kindergarden, and the school as a whole is great. They have alot more resources then all of the other Waterbury's school put together, and they were also one of the Very Few schools that meets the requirements of a school systems test wise! I am very pleased that 2 of my 3 children are going there. I plan to send my son next year provided he will get in. I love the school, I could not be happier!

Hooray Maloney Magnet School.I have twin boys who attend the PSLC here. One child has special needs the other is a peer in the same class. The teachers are spectacular.Both of my children have grown leaps and bounds since starting here last fall.It is my wish that they both will continue to recieve their education here.Parent teacher and staff relations I have found to be great.It really is to bad all children in our state cannot recieve this quality of education.

This school provides children with an incredible education. It is such a shame that the regular public school system couldn't match the standards that Maloney has.

School does not involve parents which is key to great leadership and development. I feel like I'm twisting arms to get to be able to attend their fieldtrips. Also, they do not allow enough parents to attend fieldtrips. Last year the teacher only allowed one parent. This year the teacher allows two. I remember when I was a kid, as many parents as wanted to attend were welcomed! Also anytime I have a question or concern, it seems like a problem as interpreted from their responses.

I wouldn't know about the school personally, as my daughter has not been chosen for the last three years of the lottery. I don't understand since I thought is was supposed to be racially proportioned. Only 11% are African American. What do I do to have a chance? I guess I would have to move to cheshire in order to get in.

I feel that Maloney Magnet is a wonderful school! My son has been attending there since he was in Pre-Kindergarden and he love it! He has been learning Japanese for 4 years. In addition to this he is attending their free summer program, where they are learning all about different countries and cultures. I'm really proud of the school and my only concern this year was the amount of homework he was receiving. I spoke with the teacher and she realized it was, a little too much so she adjusted the amount appropriately. I only wish Maloney Magnet would come up with a middle school within 2 years for my son to attend once he graduates.

The school is not helpful to children with cognative immaturity, slower growing type kids. There is no effort made by the school to involve parents. Rigid staff is difficult to work with. Many teachers are bilingual and difficult to understand.
