Soule School is an amazing school, with small class sizes, great academic initiatives, and teachers that really care. Led by a great principal that knows every child's name, this school has an unbeatable team approach to making sure every child gets what she/he needs to excel academically. Parent involvement is welcomed with open arms. I have two daughters at this school, both at the top of their classes. They are getting extra challenge. One daughter doubled her reading speed and fluency through the team attention to her needs (principal, reading specialist, teacher). She is just ending 3rd grade but now tests at a level entering 5th grade. We have enjoyed every minute at this school, and my kids love it.
Sorry to hear about the negative experience the special ed program, but Soule has been a great place for my two kids. Our son has allergies and the Soule faculty and staff have been remarkably cooperative and very proactive in their support of our son's needs and our many special requests. Otherwise, every one of the comments of the first three reviews (dating back to 2005) still seem apply. Great School!
Soule school needs to work closer with there aides that are interacting with the special education students and make sure the child is being treated fairly and confronts the child with a positive attitude. Soule School also needs to recognize as the parent they have every right to make decisions regarding there childs education.
I Love this school and most of the staff. My 4 children have all attended this school for many years. I still have two whom will be returning in the fall. I have always, in most cases have had positive interactions and experiences with the staff at Soule. My children Love attending Soule and Love most of the teachers and staff at the school so that is what matters to me....
I have 2 children who attend this school. I am extremely happy with the staff and cirriculum. The principal and staff foster a very family oriented environment and there are many resources available for all learning styles at this school. My children previously attended a private catholic school in the area, and I was not as impressed with the opportunity for growth and learning that is available at the Soule School under the leadership of Maura Palmer, the principal. The PTA is very active and progressive. I feel the overall quality of education has significantly improved in this school over the past 6 years and would highly recommend it.
This school is top notch, wonderful teachers, great staff, PTA is outstanding. The children learn how to coexist with different cultures, ethniciites and how wonderful is that! I could not be more proud of this school.
