My son has gone here for two years and loves it. We value the diversity and the hardworking teachers. He has grown from being a non-reader entering kindergarten to a third grade reader in first grade!

This school has gone badly downhill. Apart from academic standards that are not at all rigorous, there are significant discipline and behavior problems.

All three of our grown daughters went to Neill Elementary and had a very good experience. Two have gone on to college and one is now a Doctor of Physical Therapy. Keep up the good work Neill teachers and staff.
