For so many reasons. Not only are the staff helpful and caring, but professional and bright. Whether I attend a school function or I am just dropping off our daughter for the day, I am always greeted with welcome smiles and hellos. If I have a question or concern, I have always been addressed promptly and with courtesy. Most of all our daughter is very happy and is thriving in 1st grade and we couldnt be happier.

DRE is has been a great school for my son. The teachers have been outstanding each year. He is in the 4th grade & loves to go to school each day. The best decision I every made was to send him to young 5's @ DRE. This is a great program & has helped him grow & develop into a responsible student.

Both of our children go to Douglas Road. They have been challenged academically, and it shows. Both girls are at the top of their classes. These achievements didn't just happen! We were guided by the school to send both to Young 5's. It was the best decision we have made for them. They are the oldest in thier classes and true leaders! Exactly what helps them to make better decisions in the future. Thanks DRE!

DRE is number 1. I could fill up page after page of how amazing this school is. Teachers, staff, parents, and students all work together to make this school such a perfect place for our children. I have had children attending DRE for almost 10 full years now, with my youngest starting kindergarten next year. Kudos to all who make DRE what it is :-)

Because I was one of the first students to go to Douglas Road. It was opened up the year I went into 1st grade. Raised all three of my children while they attended there and now my grand daughters go to school there. Just as I loved it and all the staff, my family has too. It is a great school. Even the office personal knows all of the kids. They are not just a body they are cared about students. Such wonderful memories. Please help them.

I love the staff and how much they care for the kids that attend there. They truly create a rich learning environment and would like to do more. If DRE were to receive these funds they would be able to do more and more for the kids that attend there. The elemenatary age students need as much help as they can get to increase their abilty to be successful and DRE would help these children to reach there full potential with the help of this wonderful oppurtunity. I have personally seen the compassion and generousity that this staff has given to the children in need and i hope they win so that they can do even more. They are a true family and i am proud that my children attend there. Thank you,

Our family has a deep respect and overwhelming love for Douglas Road Elementary School for so many reasons, but will stick to naming just a few for now. Our family and our family's family have been a part of Bedford Public schools for at least four generations now. Bedford has always been here for whatever reasons may arise, however most recently DRE and Mrs. Nearpass helped make it possible for my daughter to attend 6th grade camp, for which she wouldn't have gone otherwise because of financial reasons. The hold the value that this tradtition of camp is an experience that no child should have to miss out on. I have been permanently disabled so cannot work and provide those extra's that my children should have anymore. Mrs. Nearpass has also helped our family by connecting us with resources to help cope with certain disabilities we would not have sought on our own. I can't emphasize enough how much DRE and their principal mean to this community or how much they deserve the same breaks once in a while that they provide for their families.

Douglas Road Elementary is a school whose teachers and staff love the children who attend and really care about the individual childs learning progress. They give of their personal time for fund raising events as well as school functions and meeting with parents. The teachers are well trained and skilled at teaching. I wish every child could have the elementary school experience that my daughters have had!

I love Douglas Road Elementary. The teachers are well trained,willing to work with the parents and are always available for any concerns the parents might have. The principle goes out of her way to know all the students in her school, the kids seem to love her, they go out of their way to give her hugs when they see her in the hallway. You can tell that the teachers care for their students and want them to succeed. The teachers we have had so far have greatly challenged our son, I feel he is excelling so much because of that!

I have two children in this school. I have found everyone on staff to be nice, helpful and so willing to work with me on any issues that I felt needed addressed. I have two more to enroll next year and I have no doubt that this is the school for them. The only reason I gave them four out of five stars? No one is perfect. But this place is close!

I had 2 children at this school before we left for Colorado. My son said he will NEVER forget his 6th grade teacher Mr. German, he couldn't ask for a better, more fun learning time then he spent in his class. My daughter learned so much at that school. Shes still after 6 months of being gone shes still in contact with her teacher via e-mail. So I WE have nothing but GREAT things to say about this school...Thank You
