We moved to MD a few years ago. My kids upset initially because they missed they're friends and teachers from the previous school. But I told them that the new school would be just a nice and they can meet new friends. As time when on, we realized that the school was beyond our expectation. The teacher and staff were very professional and friendly. The school was very orderly, structured, and many events geared towards the development of the children. Needless to say, my children have met new friends and exceptional teachers that promote educational excellence while caring about my child's individual growth. I highly recommend this school.

I recently had an opportunity to visit Fort Foote Elementary. While I was not there to visit the principal, I happened to run into her at the door. Dr. Goldsmith greeted me with a smile and immediately asked how she could assist me. She was very pleasant and helpful, something I have not seen an many other schools where I have children. My child has always raved about how much she loves her principal and now I see why. Fort Foote is an excellent school that puts children first and I am so grateful my child is receiving the best possible education she can in Prince George's County.

Great School. Please don't get misguided by test results, this is a great school. Teachers are very responsible and love the kids. I have 2 kids that went to Fort Foote ES, one of them is an Honor student at Oxon Hill HS and my other one is an honor student still at Fort Foote ES. Thanks to the teachers and our involvement as parents my kids are doing excellent. The PTA is very active in this school, lots of activities done by PTA. School building is little old but what counts is the love and responsibility of their teachers.

This is a great small community school in the Fort Washington/National Harbor community. We transitioned our son from a private school to Fort Foote ES as we were impressed with the vision of the principal and the dedication to ensuring the school is one of excellence. There is great parental involvement and a very active PTA. It should be noted that residents of the National Harbor are zoned for this school.

Great School with a community feel!! We moved into the area and initially thought we would keep our son in private school. Due to the community feel of a small school and the dedication by administration to ensure that this school provides a top notch educational experience, we decided to give Fort Foote a try. My son had a great Kindergarten teacher and we were truly happy with our decision. They have a great PTA as well! It should be noted that if you live in the National Harbor, this is the zoned school, so there is great interest in this school's success.

My child has learned academically and life independence skills. The administration has been very attentive and Ms. Bannat is SIMPLY AMAZING!

My child was once enrolled in Ft Foote after coming from a private school setting. This was the worst mistake I could have made! Out of 5 days in a week I cried at least 3.5 because of the demeanor in which my child (who was deemed gifted) was treated. I decided to put my child in Fort Foote because of them having a 'Blue Ribbon Status'...boy was that a hoot! To my surprise, this status was granted under a very older administration---current administration is doing a SAD job of living up to these standards. I met with the Principal, VP, etc., in regards to being pulled out and placed in another grade level in regards to Reading/Language Arts...and even worse mistake as that teacher proved to not be worth the disruption of my child changing classes. Finally after much turmoil, I enrolled my child back in private school.

I have a child in second grade and the Head start program and they are doing very well in the Fort Foote and think the teachers really do care about the children and the needs.

It saddens me as a parent whom once thought highly of Fort Foote and the administration, to say that I am extremely disappointed in the way our children's educational needs are not being met. My child was a honor student and is failing now due to the lack of concern not only from our principal, but her teacher as well. I brought my concerns through many channels and as of January and my child is still in the same predicament. I have lost all hope and confidence in our school system not to mention Fort Foote.
