We have two children at Folwell. Every teacher has been nurturing and caring. Our children love their teachers, and do very well on the national standardized tests. Our kids have made very close friends here. The other parents are also very friendly and been great resources as well. We love the smaller, intimate feel of this neighborhood school.

This is a wonderful, welcoming, exceptional elementary school with outstanding teachers and supportive top caliber administration. My son has been at Folwell for two years and has thrived and grown. Definitely a fabulous environment.

I have one daughter (with special needs) who just started middle school and two sons who are currently attending Folwell. I can honestly say that the Principal, teachers, and paraprofessional are fabulous! They are dedicated to the children and truly care for their well-being. I volunteer in my childrens classes at least a couple of times a month and am always impressed at how inclusive the children are of one another. The current special education teachers are amazing. Their dedication to the children and open communication have been my daughters key to success. In addition, they take a TEAM-based approach (principal, teacher, special education teacher and parents). There is a very large number of parent volunteers which makes this school extra special. The children really benefit from additional programs that the school district could not afford otherwise. I am proud to be a FOLWELL parent!

Folwell is an excellent elementary school which will always have a special place in our hearts. The students strive for and expect success, and the parents take the time to be involved and really care. As a social network, the students are very close but also confidently spread their social wings upon entering the much larger middle and high school. Even then they remain close, my college child still has 'Folwell reunions' with her elementary class and all are invited, not just a select few. That inclusiveness along with the excellent academics provide a near ideal experience.

We just moved to Rochester last year and enrolled 3 of our children at Folwell. Folwell is a charming and small community school. This affords a little bit smaller class sizes as well as lots of personal attention from teachers. They are a tight-knit group, but afforded our children a very warm welcome. The teachers are by far the biggest selling point of this school. They are phenomenal.
