I LOVE Malcolm. My son has gone here for the past 3 years and is now in 5th grade and my daughter for the past 2 years and is in 1st grade. I have had nothing but great experiences with the students, teachers, and Principal. They are all wonderful they know the parents and students by name. They have lots of activities for the children and always do new things to keep the kids interested in school and learning. Any time children want to go to school everyday and are made when school is closed then you know they are doing things right.

Great school with caring teachers and wonderful support staff. The principal and vice principal are the best you could ever ask for. I have both of children currently attending (5th and 1st) and both love it. My only negative aspect about the school is that it an older school and has had to recently add trailers to accommodate the additional students which is no fault of the faculty. I wish the county/state had the funding to upgrade the school. I definitely would recommend this school!

I really miss this school a lot! This school is what started it all for me! I completely agree with everyones reviews except for the first ever one. That is not true! I had to put that out there because it is a fantastic school. I completely disagree with that parents review and frankly think that it's not true(what they said). Everything there is planned WAY ahead of time and always has a very fun and educational twist! This is the best school ever and all the faculty do their best every day to make students safe, smart, and proud. Just glance around the school and you will realize that. I LOVE MALCOLM!

I am a grandparent of a student at this school. My daughter also attended this school in the 1980's. Wonderful, positive school! Very creative programs. The staff and teachers truly care about what they are doing. Love it!

Malcolm Elementary is a great school. The principal the teachers all show genuine care and concern for the students. The principal and Vice Principal seem to know each student by name. My son is home school and my daughter who attends full time does exceptionally well, thanks to the care and teaching they receive. This is my son's last year at Malcolm and he already hates the thought of leaving.

I think that Malcolm is a great school well worthy of its blue ribbon rating. I attribute a lot of my pleasant experience with the Charles County School system and the services they offer students with special needs. I am very pleased and would be hard pressed if I ever had to consider having my children anywhere else!

Malcolm is an exemplary institution. We have two children in attendance. Our oldest has attended K 3. Her teachers, Mrs. St Onge (2nd grade) and Mrs. Praytor (3rd grade), have gone out of their way to keep us informed of her progress. Their feedback has enabled us to coach our daughter with any subjects that she has trouble grasping. As I walk the halls, I ve observed that most of the students know the principal by face/name recognition. The school hosts quarterly award ceremonies, book fairs, science fairs and other events to keep parents, community and the school continually involved in student success. You won t find a better elementary school in the surrounding counties.

We love our school! We have two children currently attending and an 8th grader in middle school who attended Malcolm since kindergarten. She is excelling in middle school thanks to her Malcolm upbringing. Our younger two are as well. Great school!

I absolutely love Malcolm. My third grader has been a student since Pre-k and has had a wonderful experience. So far every teacher we have had has been wonderful. (Ms Walker, Hammond, Brucculeiri, Burroughs, and Alley. I have always been notified in a timely manner of special events via the school calendar and website. I am looking forward to when my toddler will get the opportunity to attend Malcolm.

I highly disagree with the parent review. I find that Malcolm Elementary School is one that prides itself on character and keeping students and parents involved. There are many opportunities for parents to participate not only in the classroom but throughout the school. Parents are involved when they become vocal that they would like to be involved and what hours or talents they can offer. Trust me, the faculty at the school appreciate EVERYTHING that is done voluntarily! Malcolm is exemplary not for their academics but for also involving the community. They sponsor family nights, award assemblies, and the PTA sponsors community events throughout the year. There are opportunities. There is no better place to learn than at this school where teachers care about their students & do their VERY BEST to provide support in every manner possible.

I am very disappointed in Malcolm Elementary School. The harder we try to have school spirit, the more disappointed we are when we see how little they care about school spirit. Malcolm is a Blue Ribbon school, and concentrates solely on that. Things are planned at the last minute and it makes it difficult for working (single) moms to be active with the school. We spent hours publishing a book for school and just found out tonight that the book fair is tomorrow night. Due to the late notice, I'll need to cancel plans to be there. Their science fairs, grandparents day, picture days are all last minute also. If you're not a stay-at-home-mom, stay away from Malcolm.
