Memorial School has an exceptional teaching staff with excellent teacher-student ratios. Current principal, Donna Calabrese warmly learns each student by name and is highly visible to parents during daily dismissals. Our family has joined many other parents during Family Math Night, Book Fairs, Family Zumba Day, Field Day. We love that Memorial School encourages parent involvement and civic engagement. Memorial kids just enjoy being kids: they aren't concerned about wearing the "right brand" of shoes, jeans. It's not a rat-race to impress or fit in. That's a huge reason why we've never encountered bullying at Memorial. Our kids are very excited about joining the new Walking Club at school, promoting health and fitness outside P.E.. Unlike other West Springfield Schools, 1st-4th grade Memorial kids get to take Music and Art classes weekly, year-round. There is an in-house, very affordable after-school program with a snack and homework help given by classroom teachers. It's wonderful to be able to give your child a chance to join a fun after school program that offers Lego Robotics without sacrificing his homework or grades. I speak to you as a parent who has put 4 children through Memorial School. I recommend this school and encourage you to meet the staff.

Develops character: Strongly agree

I've witnessed a student being held accountable to Memorial's standards of honesty. There was no public humiliation, shaming. The student was required to tell the truth, understand her wrongdoing, accept consequences which included a heartfelt apology. As a parent in this situation, I don't think that I would have done anything differently.
