We love Morris Adler Elementary School! Three generations of our family have graduated from Adler. Adler has excellent parental involvement (as is evidenced by our terrific P.T.A.) and the staff truly cares about our children as if they were their own. The school has high expectations for students and parents which has created a school wide culture of believers who understand that failure is not an option! Mr. Tait is a great Principal who validates our concerns and takes them seriously. The students and staff respect his leadership. My sons favorite teachers were Mrs. Raghavan and Ms. Hill. My favorite teacher was Mr. Walther. Adler is the center of our community and will be forever a part of our family.

My experience with Adler Elementary has been great. The school and parents do a great job in creating a positive and educational community environment. The teachers are experienced and motivated to provide the highest education. I have three children - grades 4, 1, and K. Each teacher has the upmost professionalism, kindness, and "serious business" dedication of educating the children. I have witnessed them go above and beyond reasonable expectations to ensure each child succeeds. (Especially Ms. Davis, the kindergarten teacher of two of my three children. I can not say enough kind words about her skill as a kindgergarten teacher.) I find the principal, Mr. Tait very active, involved, and easily accessible. The parents are active and friendly. I have made excellent acquataineces with many. There is an active PTA. I find Adler does a great job partnering with the PTA to provide really creative seasonal family-oriented fun events. The PTA works hard to support the children and teachers. I also enjoy that Adler is small with only K-5. I find this really caters to an elementary atmosphere, as opposed to the K-8, (which I experienced and did not like). One final thing about Adler is that at the end of the day, I notice the teachers, children, and parents coming to pick up the children have smiles on their faces. That is hard to find from my experience. Areas of concern: Adler needs more resources. For instance, the school has a planetarium, but its not in use for the students. The lunch time / recess staff could use more hands on deck. All in all however, Adler is a great choice. If you are looking for an intimate school with great teachers, I higly recommend Adler for your consideration. -M. Green, (Mom of 3)

I love Adler Elementary, not only did I go there as a child but my oldest son went there and graduated. Now my youngest is attending Adler and will be graduating next year. The teachers are hands on and care about the students. The parents are always very involved.

This is a great school with highly educated teachers. My son has performed well and gets great grades. I wish they had more homework but they have lots of activities and projects. He participates in academic games and basketball there. Don't be upset with the school if you child has bad grades, that's your fault.

Adler Elementary... for children who are not having any issues academically or otherwise the school is ok. But, if your child has ANY problems the leadership here acts like the child is not worthy. I would NOT recommend this school if your child is not like everyone else's child. The school could improve by trying to find ways to help students not hinder them. There is not always enough GOOD supervision.

I have found Adler elementary school staff and teachers to be of great help. My child is doing well. The secretarial staff is very friendly and helpful. The new principal, Mr. Tait is always present and willing to listen to my concerns and ideas.

Adler is a wonderful school that promotes a very high level learning enviornment! The teachers are very hardworking and absolutely great! Outside of the new very POOR leadership under the new principal, Jerry Tait, I love the school!

My child attends Adler and it is a good school, however because of budget cuts we lost a great teacher in the 3rd grade. My only fear is this is just the start of district cuts that will hurt our children

Incredible school! My daughter has attended since kindergarten and she is now in the fourth grade. The principal Mrs. Jones is awesome. The teachers are incredible, Mrs. Little, Mrs. Merchant, Mrs. Gates, Mrs. Zackrie, Mrs. Simoni. The extra-curricular activities are wonderful--Academic Games, Chess Club. I am sure that the staff at the school will produce numerous future leaders. My child is truly blessed to attend this school because she is receiving an exceptional education.

This is my Daughters first year at Adler. So far I'm very pleased with her first grade teacher Mrs. Merchant, I've seen significant improvement in my Daughters learning curve. The Latch Key program is just as excellent. They are really good at assisting with homework. They also have a good spanish teacher as well. I recommend parents take some spanish classes as well, it helps the children with learning. Although it's only been 3 months into the school year, I'm very pleased with the way things are going.

The environment at Adler is wonderfully nurturing. I appreciate the professionalism that is exhibited from Ms. Jones on down thru her staff. The school is quick to identify areas of concern and chart a course of support for a student if it is warranted. The school gives a good balance of academic, social and extracurricular activites which translate to a well rounded student. That is sooooo important. My children have been enrolled in schools who's major focus was academics creating an imbalance. I have nothing but positive remarks for this school and would like to nominate Ms. Jones and her staff for an 'Outstanding School' Award.

I have two children who attend Adler, and I would like to say I am very very pleased with the school. I am constantly bragging about the teachers and principle there. I appreciate the teachers for letting you know ahead of time when you child is lacking in an academic program so that you can work along side with them to solve the problem. I also give Adler 5 stars.

Overall, Adler is a great school. I've compared this school to areas such as West Bloomfield, Bloomfield Hills, Farmington Hills and the quality of education is just the same. The principal is a very caring person wants nothing but the best for her students and staff. In areas such additional services, it does need extra, extra support for students in the 3rd through 5th grade with Reading Comprehension during the day. Overall, I've been please with Adler Elementary.

I am a parent of a student that belongs to Adler Elementary. I think this is a wonderful school. The staff and students are great. They have a excellent academic program! I'm so proud of my child reading skills. She is only in the 2nd grade and already reading at a 4th grade level. Also, her math skills are great too! I'll give Adler Elementary 4 stars!
