I love the staff! The teachers, administrators, and support staff have been an amazing help to my 2nd grader!!! He would not be as successful in school without these incredible adults in his life!
The teachers have really stepped up this year and are doing everything they can to help our children succeed!
Both of my kids went to this school and could not ask for a better group of teachers and parents. I am proud to say my children go to Douglas Rd. They have the best teachers!!
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,
DRE is the best. My son was a resource room student and is not in college with a 3.2 GPA. And it's because of all the great help he had when he was at DRE
Mrs. Nearpass is the most dedicated, capable, and caring educator I have ever met.
DRE is a very warm and inviting school with a very caring and dedicated staff. My children love school and their teachers go out of their way to make learning meaningful and interesting. I am very impressed with all of the opportunities for family involvement (reading night, art night, ice-cream social, donuts with dad, mornings with mom, etc.)
I have 2 nieces currently attending this school and they absolutely love their teachers! The thought of them having change schools at such a young age would be very hard.
My daughter is in the Young Fives & I have been extremely happy with everything about DRE. The teachers, everyone really cares about the children and make you feel at home right away.
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!
Douglas Road Elementary is an excellent school. The entire staff cares about students and builds strong relationships with them. The staff understands that each child is unique and they strive to meet the needs of all students. The school fosters the development of positive character trait. Students and staff are mutually respectful. The staff is highly skilled in teaching reading, writing, math, and all core subjects. DRE is a GREAT school.
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!
My kids went to this school and now I sub at this school. The teachers are fabulous! They love their kids and will do anything they can to help a child achieve.
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!
This school is great! The teachers are awesome! The school provides a safe environment for the students. They also have a variety of teaching techniques. I would recommend this school to anyone!
I love this school. My oldest two daughters went to Smith Road, which is also a wonderful school. I have one in Douglas Road, and one ready to begin. The teachers and staff truly care about the kids and work hard to make sure their experience is there is wonderful.
