Excellent school, teachers and education. Great computer and music programs. Chelmsford schools test very high on the MCA's tests.

The male/female ratio is 14/5. My daughter has a difficult time concentrating due to the" classroom being out of control." She has used the word" embarrassed" to express how she feels when her classroom travels out of the room, as she feels the other classrooms "listen and act respectfully." When forgetting her lunch ticket, I received a telephone call stating that there was no budget to cover her, so I had to leave work to deliver her money. The front desk staff is cold and unfriendly, the children, after coming off the busses in the am have limited/no supervision from staff. My two times in the school during this time, I saw shoving, bullying, was ridiculous. My daughter has come home with numerous ungraded/marked papers, and the curriculum is disappointing, and homework is not well explained. I am relocating as soon as my child is finished this year. I wish I would have moved elsewh

After budget cuts two years ago we were saddened to here we were being redistriced to South Row. Well, let me tell was a blessing in disguise and we have found that the school is a hidden gem in a fantastic town. The principal is an active daily pressence in the school with excellent communication. We are proud to be a part of the school and the teachers can not be beat!

Faced with a town vote which effectively slashed funding for the schools, South Row is doing as well as it can. The staff is dedicated and sincere.

My daughter went to Kindergarten there, and I found it to be sub-par. She did not learn basic reading skills, and her kindergarten class was more of a 'lets play' time compared to other Kindergarten classes. Her first grade teacher is excellent and I look forward to a year of her catching up.

My son was and my daughter is a student at South Row. They both enjoy(ed) the time they spend there. I have met with my children's teachers and find them to be caring and knowledgeable individuals. The curriculum is very good and can be challenging on occasion (which is a good thing). I feel the principal looks out for our children in every facet of their education as well as their safety while attending this school. The PTO is involved. The children have the option to play an instrument, participate in a chess club, or attend events held both inside and outside of the school throughout the school year. I am glad both of my children attend(ed) South Row Elementary.

My daughter will be in first grade this year at South Row. She absolutely loved kindergarten. Her teacher was a joy to deal with. The principal is also wonderful and every week there is a newsletter sent home so we can read about everything going on at the school. A definite plus for us working moms.

My first daughter began kindegarten this year at South Row. Her teacher has been wonderful to work with since we're new to the school. The agenda is full and the students have learned a great deal thus far. Feedback is given to us from the teacher. Also, parents receive a weekly newsletter from the Principal to update us on the agendas and extracurricular activities. It's been a pleasurable experience thus far!
