This is a great school. The principal and teachers do a great job to foster a love of learning in the kids. My daughter loved going to school and cried on the last day of 5th grade.cos she would miss her teacher. The front office is staff and the principal are welcoming and helpful and there is an overall upbeat atmosphere in the building which makes learning fun. We have had the best experience ever!!
One of Best school in the city. Very good teachers and school district.
We have a 5th grader and 1st grader at Graham. We moved from California when our oldest child child was in the 2nd grade. Naperville lives up to the reputation of having GREAT schools -- Graham, Crone, Nequa. Great line-up of top-rated schools for elementary, middle and high school. We've been impressed with how Graham's teachers work together and 'specialize' in teaching different subjects they are best at. Our son had a home room teacher and different teachers for excel math, science, music, art, PE. His main teacher taught the rest of the subjects. Great proactive support given to kids who need extra coaching/help as well as programs for kids who are in advanced tracks. Very involved parents and teachers who really care and are highly respected by the parents and kids. K is academic, not another year of pre-school.
Graham Elementary is a great school with a some fantastic teachers. Grades 1,2 and 3 have several teachers who work together and have developed programs that work well at each level. The current principal seems rather unengaged, but will be retiring this year (04/05). The music teacher is hard to beat. I have been a bit disappointed with the PTA as it seems to be split by neighborhood, so there isn't much cooperation among the parents involved. It primarily maintains current activities and programs and rarely comes up with new ideas. I give it an 8 out of 10.
I think this is a great school. They have a wonderful curriculum and facility. They really go out of their way to assist with children who may have special needs or are eligible for the gifted and talented programs. I highly recommend the school. I have rated the principal low, however, she retires this year.
