I'm so disappointed in the new principal. Mrs. Sites left big shoes to fill. I've had 3 interactions with Mrs. Demel; all negative & school hasn't even started. I came in to volunteer twice & for enrollment & wasn't even acknowledged by her. She didn't even come out of her office. When I was introduced later she seemed too busy to engage with my child. Great teachers, poor leadership. You're better than this Derby.

Teacher effectiveness: Strongly agree

Teachers at Tanglewood love to teach and you can tell by their enthusiasm and ability to engage their students in learning.


Amount of homework: Agree

I have to say depending on the grade level they are in my answer may change for this. I have felt some years my student didn't have enough and one year that they had too much. Overall they have a good balance and try to teach the kids time management as they get older and to use their time wisely so they won't have a lot of homework for the evenings and weekends.

Develops character: Strongly agree

The school has a wonderful DARE program for the 5th grade that teaches kids about good decision making skills. They also have a fantastic integrated system for their special needs students that makes sure they spend as much time with their grade level as possible which is great for all students to learn and observe how everyone learns differently.

Tanglewood is a wonderful elementary school! My children love coming to school every morning and always come home happy with something new they learned to talk about. The office staff is welcoming and very helpful whenever you need to get a message to your student or take them out for an appointment. The teachers and paras are all wonderful people who seem happy to be at work everyday. They have a fantastic parent group that helps with hosting family events and fundraising for field trips and school supplies. We were very scared when we first walked in to Tanglewood 5 years ago because of the open concepts, but have been pleasantly surprised how well the kids learn and focus when they are older because of the skills they learned at an early age at Tanglewood.

My son is falling behind in his academics due to the lack of attention from his teacher. Very disturbing to see red notations on his homework yet nothing corrective has been done about it.
