I love Ardmore so much, I can't imagine sending my children anywhere else. For the last few years, we have thought about possibly moving out of the area but I must say that is Ardmore that keeps me here. They have so many great programs for children that need a little more help and also children that need a little more of a challenge. The treat each child as an individual and cater to that child's needs. I also love the community spirit that goes along with Ardmore, there are always events where you can participate more actively in your childs school. I love it and will never leave...until they make me! :0)
Ardmore Elementary is a very good school with kind, dedicated teachers and staff. Technology is abundant. Creativity is fostered in the kids through art and music. The discipline program is superb which really helps out in the classroom. There is little time wasted on behavior issues. I would, however, like to see smaller classroom sizes, more teachers with masters degrees, and more challenging material for the brighter kids. Some steps have been made to these ends, but I would like to see more.
The staff at Ardmore Elementary in Villa Park, Illinois does just about everything you can think of to make sure every child is noticed and appreciated for their unique abilities and skills, and fosters their individuality through a wide variety of special programs, educational tools, teaching techniques, positive reinforcement, and ability segmentation to make sure that each child is challenged to the highest level possible in a caring environment. Parental involvement is very high, and parent/staff interaction is frequent and encouraged. It's a wonderful school and a great community!
Ardmore is a wonderful school that is a nurturing environment for all kids. I think the teachers and staff are wonderful, the PTA is really involved, and the kids have a TON of school spirit. I am very happy that I chose Ardmore.
Ardmore is a real community school. The parents are involved, the teachers are involved, and the kids are involved. The staff really went out of their way to provide for my child during her extended illness and recovery.
This is a quality school. PTA involvement is extremely high. The teachers are all well loved by the community. Literally the best school in the district. Teachers and administration care deeply about the children, and it shows. The kids get an hour of art, pe and music every week. Quality assemblies are put on by the PTA. Artists in residence come once per year. Student teachers request Ardmore because they know how good a school this is, and because they hope to somehow get a job there once their schooling is over. I wish I had lots of kids so that we could stay at Ardmore!
This is school is so big, clean, beautiful and has many wonderful teachers. This is the greatest school! I'm sending all 5 of my kids here. I'd send them no where else!
