Teacher effectiveness: Neutral

They're limited to what they can do with the children because of the principal when you're worried if somebody is going to I freaked out on you for something you've done that you've been doing for years and works great but all the sudden one person disagrees and tells you to shut it down because they're in control it's hard for the teachers to be allowed to teach our children the way they should be taught and that's why Nevada is like 48 and the in the country as far as successful graduating students

Amount of homework: Disagree

After being at school all day when you get out at 3 you get home you settle in and relax and then you have to do homework for hours it's hard on the parents it's hard on the children I feel like 30 minutes of reading and maybe a practice page of math would be sufficient


Develops character: Strongly disagree

The principle does not value those traits herself therefore she cannot be a good example to the children to be honest respectful and good human beings.. when you see day in day out the principal of a school have zero morals the kids will soak that in and repeated in life.. other the teachers that they recently hired are good I guess

As a grandparent of a 1st grader and Kindergartner I have seen first hand through volunteering in the classroom and attending school functions, the terrific staff of teachers and aides at Mamie Towles. Both go above and beyond their duties and demonstrate a genuine concern for the students. The parent involvement is phenomenal which is seen in the numbers that turn out for school events. I am so grateful that my grandchildren are able to attend Mamie Towles. I only wish Towles had a Spanish immersion program, which is, unfortunately, only at two WCSD elementary schools. If it did, I would give the school an A++++++!

We are very pleased with this school. Our child is in 1st grade and we feel so fortunate to have such an amazing teacher watch over and guide him. His teacher keeps in close touch with us regarding how he is doing with the lessons as well as his behavior. We were very picky as to where our son would go and I did hours of research comparing Towles to neighboring schools and I learned that this school we are zoned for is a great place for him to be.The faculty is really wonderful, great listeners and always offer a lending ear. The PTO is on top of important matters and the school functions are a ton a fun. My son always wants to attend the school functions. I read a lot about this schools constant fund raisers and that concerned me to a degree. Now that I know more about the lack of funding through the district, we want our kids to have awesome opportunities and they cost money. If families can't give, thats okay. But I say keep fundraising for those that can give will and ALL of our children will reap the benefits. If you don't ask for something, you may never get it. I give this school two thumbs up.

This school is the best elementary school in Reno! My step daughter has excelled in every way do to the teachers and staff of this school. I have been a part of many events at the school and enjoy every one

This is an older neighborhood school, but I much prefer it to the newer schools because it is so much less crowded and everyone knows the students in this environment. My daughter has had tremendous teachers and has really blossomed here. The combined grade classrooms, especially at the upper levels, have really allowed her to work at her own pace.
