Sumner Elementary School 3

Teachers in non-inclusion classes seem really burned out, and regularly miss almost half the days (they have a lot of sick and personal time!) The assistant principal is awful and doesn't seem to like children, but the principal herself seems fairly on top of things. Overall, unimpressive. I'm working on getting my kids out of there. Redeeming qualities include extremely affordable before and after school care if you can get off the wait list, free lunches (that's any school in BPS), racial diversity, and some dedicated teachers in the inclusion classes.

The Charles Sumner Elementary is one of the best schools of Boston. The teachers really care about the kids and go above and beyond to help your child get to where he/she needs to be academically.

Our granddaughter just finished up her 1st year in K2 and had a wonderful experience, Her teachers really helped her to overcome her shyness and brought out the best in her. We were very pleased at the progress she made in this multi cultural environment.

This is a great school! Students and Parents are saying great things. Over the last three years they have made great progress on the state testing. The administration is no nonsense and have high expectations for academics and behavior.

Worse school ever. Was glad to get my daughter out of there. The principal and assistant principal don't know what they're doing!! Thank god we're through with that school.

The Sumner School has proven to be a great choice for our family. Two of my three children attend/have attended and we look forward to our third entering when he is old enough. The teachers so far have been phenomenal and our children have developed a real love for learning as a result. The principal is dedicated to continuing to develop communication strategies so that all parents are "in the loop" when it comes to their own child and the school in general. I highly recommend this school.

I didn't know how my child was doing until report card. There was no feed-back before the report card period. i reqested home work results but never got it. This time my child got a 2 in home work. i always go over all home work and correct any problems so why the 2??? Harrasment by other kids. No, correction by teacher.
