Bad school Please do not enroll your child to this school,save his/her education. Everything about the school is just horrible. I just hope the school board reads all the reviews and actually does something about it. Snow school management just don't care.

I think this school is in need of some Help. My oldest is in his last year here. And we have had issues that have been handled very poorly. My youngest is currently struggling just to make it through the day. He started saying this year out no where he doesn't like school. I have tried to figure out with the school what has him feeling and acting this way at school. No help from them. Now I am trying to get to the bottom of it myself by taking h to see a doctor. The doctor says something is going on at school and that he would help me get to the bottom of this.

Two of my children attend Snow and they both love it. I really liked the teachers and all the support staff seemed very friendly and helpful. I did have one encounter with the principal who I hunk could be slightly more helpful but overall I really like this school.

My son has attended snow for 3yrs and absolutely loves it. I love the teachers and the principle. Though, the PTA is a bit crazy and need a reality check that's not something I let affect my child. They have a wonderful reading program, which taught my child to read, and the teacher who does it is the best, we love her! My biggest complaint is not directed toward Snow yet all Dearborn schools have Ramadan off..

My daughter has attended Snow School and its child care programs since age 3 1/2. The staff are caring, dediated and innovative. They work diligently to implement modern teaching methods in order for our children keep pace with the world. In 1st grade, my daughter had reading recovery; without it she would have failed 1st grade, but now she scores above-average in reading and she loves to read. In 2nd grade, the teacher made weekly, individualized spelling lists for each child. In 3rd grade, the children learned to write real book and research reports. In 4th grade, the children have an in- class 'market' system to learn economics. Everyday math is excellent, though I think more time is needed for drilling of adding and multiplying. There is art, gym, music, computers and library, and my daughter benefits from all of these. The grounds and building are lovely and clean.

This school is awful! The principal is very big disappointment. The school is under staffed and the ratio of student to teacher is unacceptable.

I moved to the area about 3 years ago, and my daughter and son have gone there. I took my son out after K and my daughter continued until now. The school has major diversity issues teachers and staff need diversity and sensitivity training. I've had to bring my issues up with the school board and this year I do not want to battle again. School is for education regardless of race. My kids will not attend this school ever again!!!

This school is terrible. My son has attended since K and is now going into 5th. We are planning on sending him to a Charter school next years. If the elementary is this bad I can't imagine what middle and High school would be like. Awful principle teachers who care more about talking on there cell phones than teaching. Dearborn schools are just plain bad. Unfortunate for our family house prices dropped like a lead balloon or we would move far far away from Dearborn. And the busing from the East side stinks.

Our experience at Snow was not good. Our daughter fell off the table with the switch to the new math program in 2003. The only response we got from the school was 'We'll spiral back to it and she'll get it next time.' as if her not getting it this time didn't matter at all. We made the decision to pull our children from this school only to find that our daughter wasn't just behind in math when she entered her new school. She is now struggling to get up to grade level in a charter school where the teachers are more than willing to help a struggling child.

I am very pleased and impressed with the education my son is receiving at Snow School. The principal and teachers as well as the rest of the staff are incredibly friendly, knowledgable and caring. As for academics, the new math program is definately different, however my son has thrived and excelled in this particular subject and his love of math has grown emensely. His reading ability has improved drastically over this past year and his love for education and learning is amazing. His teacher is outstanding and has obviously taken the time and effort to get to know each and every one of her students on a personal basis. While it is inevitable that schools will encounter problems, Snow's achievement in all areas is impecable. I consider my son lucky and blessed to have the opportunity to be a part of such a wonderful school.

I am sorry to say that this school is out of control and demonstates a real lack of leadership in the Dearborn School system. My children have been both verbally and physically abused by other students at the school. I have had numerous conversations about the incidents with the Administration and little is done about the discipline problems at snow. The same students continue to cause problems with no ramifications at all. For Example, much more mature boys are placed in the same classes as the little girls, due to thier inability to speak english. Situations of inappropriate sexual advances as well as fist fights are well documented at Snow. When the school Administration tries to take action on these issues the parents act worse then the children with behavior problems. My suggestion to parents would be to not send thier child to Snow if they had another [choice].

My son goes to Snow school. Her teacher would assign a long homework on Monday and ask her to turn it in on Tuesday. Then no more homework till next week! Her teacher wouldn't encourage my daughter to read! Most schools encourage the students to read one book everyweek. My daughter's teacher assigned one book only in one school year! The teacher has been absent for several days.
