Love the teachers, love the principal, love the students & families at Ardmore. I definitely feel my daughter is getting an A+ education here. She's an advanced reader, and math is coming so easy for her, thanks to the incredibly enthusiastic teacher she's had this year and last. She scores near the top of all the standardized tests, as well. Plus, the numerous after school clubs and the PTO-run regularly-scheduled evening family events are incredibly fun, too! My daughter is in her fifth year. Just one more year to enjoy Ardmore after this. Makes me sad to move on to middle school. We will miss Ardmore so much!

This is a school and community like none other! Our kids are blessed to belong here and we serve with incredibly creative and generous parents on the PTO. Our principal may be new, but he's a strong leader and awesome role model. Our kids really *look up to him*!!!! Our teachers are creative, proactive and inspired and they inspire us to do more at home to spur our kids to success. If I'm worried, I ask and I am respected and responded to. Ardmore is truly a model for successful elementary education.

Though we LOVED the old principal, Mrs. Block, the new one, who started this year, is doing a great job, as well, and he had some big shoes to fill. Ardmore is lucky to have Mr. Hahn. All of the teachers are wonderful, too. I never hear any complaints from parents about the teaching staff at this school. We love Ardmore!

This school is awesome. My son just finished first grade today and we could not be happier with his teacher and the staff. The parent community is wonderful as well.

The strawberries were put in the fridge because handing 12 strawberries out to our "closest friends" hurts feelings. Thus, placing them in the fridge and asking the student to hand them out after the luncheon encourages us to think of others. There were many volunteers and the berries were most likely, accidentally put out at the luncheon. The principal interrupted the luncheon, twice, announcing the 'missing berries' and quite a deal was made of it by staff and parents. No lack of effort went into finding the 'missing berries'. We are sorry they weren't found, however, the faculty and parents at Ardmore are wonderful people and tried hard to rectify the situation.

This school is nothing but drama. I can't blame the children because its learned behavior. My niece was called many racial slurs by the students at this school. On 5th grade graduation day I took a platter of chocolate covered strawberries and cupcakes for my niece class. Well one of the volunteer parents took it and said "I will put it in the refrigerator and give it to your niece to take back to her class". Well it never happened it was stole by one of the parents and the principal didn't really care, she brushed it off as if it wasn't her problem. Who steals from children?......Oh the parents at Ardmore.

I love the way the teachers work as a team. I always feel welcome in the school and classroom and the scores the school achieves never ceases to amaze me. And the PTO is the best I've ever seen. The amount of activities they offer at fantastic and ways a hit. This school is well sought out and rightfully so!

I am a parent of two elementary students at Ardmore. I grew up in this school district and moved back to the neighborhood when I married. Ardmore is a wonderful elementary school. The teachers are phenominal with the children. They are stern when required to be but you can tell that all of them are there because they are dedicated to their job and they truly want to teach children. Their dedication starts with the principal right to the latchkey staff. It is a very personalized environment. Everyone interacts with the parents and it seems that everyone knows each other and their children. I would not send my children anywhere else.

My mother attended Ardmore the year it opened. My sister and I attended Ardmore. My children now attend Ardmore. Need I say more? My mother, sister and I value the education we received. It's nice to talk about the past, but I will give you my current opinion. I have 2 children who attend the school. I am very satisfied with the education my children are receiving. They have had spanish since Kindergarten, they have art, gym, health, music and a wonderful media center. These extra classes are taught by different teachers for a well rounded educational experience. When I had a problem with a Teacher it was handled quickly and efficiently. The school has technology available to the students and we have had field trips each year. The PTO is active and creates a wonderful social atmosphere both during the school day and after school. Thankyou Ardmore!

I went to this school from K-5. The school alone was great. The teachers I believe could have been better. I did not agree with their teaching tactics. Dicipline, in my eyes and my parents, was not enforced highly enough. I liked the ice cream socials, field day and latchkey programs that were performed.
