I now have both of my children enrolled at Passow Elementary School and I am VERY pleased with the teachers, principal, staff and programs overall. They challenge students to achieve they're best. It is a very positive environment. Communication with the teachers/principal is excellent! They are always available to answer any questions. Our family is very happy to be part of Passow!!

Many of the teachers are good and care about the students, although there are a few bad ones. The staff does not seem to care for the input of parents very much. If they believe your child needs extra help they insist you take it even if you disagree, but if the parent feels their child needs extra help and the principal and teachers disagree there is no help provided.

My daughter is currently going into 4th grade at Passow. For the last 3 years it has been an on going fight for my daughter. I have begged to get her extra help with reading and was told that she is an average reader. In 3rd grade she was reading at a 1st grade level. When speaking to the principle I was told that my daughter could not get extra help because she was not a low enough reader but she could see the social worker about her esteem. I wish I could afford to move to a new district but I can't. So now I am paying for a private reading tutor to bring her to grade level. It is amazing how being able to read has raised her esteem.
