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)
