My younger brother was in the special needs classes at Como Park Elementary and it was an absolutely horrible experience. The school is dark and creepy and has dark windowless classrooms. When my parents went in for a eat lunch with your parent day the principal completely ignored my mother and walked away when she walked up to her to say hello. when my younger brother (who has down-syndrome) was told that he was going to go to a new school he cheered and said "Yay, yay no more como." this is how much of a bad experience that we had with the school. I would not recommend this school to anyone ever. And if you are going to dismiss this comment saying that I am just a child I am 17 years old and this is a very accurate discription of this school

Como Park is student oriented. The teachers there are very supportive. They are flexible and always making sure my questions are answered. Any discipline issues are taken care of right away. They teach the students the standards, prepare them to be responsible citizens and sets high standards for all children. The diversity there is excellent. The children come from a wide range of background.

As a parent, I find that Como Elementary was a great choice for my son, he learned so much in two years. He learned how to count, do math, read books, learn sight words, tell time and also how to interact with kids. The teachers are very supportive and they take up time to make sure that your child is learning the material. He will be returning and I am sending his siblings.
