Idlehurst Elementary School
Teacher effectiveness: Effective

I don't feel this is the best school on the planet, but it's by no means as bad as some angry residents would have you believe. There are many teachers there who are working hard and doing their best to ensure their students are receiving the education they deserve. We should be supporting the teachers and getting involved in order to help in the areas that need improvement, rather than giving up and relentlessly bashing the town. Many of these teachers have good hearts and want what's best for our kids, and it's up to us to be part of the solution.

I moved my family out of Somersworth because Idlehurst is so bad. I am so glad I did, my kids are doing great now. I can not say anything good about that so called school. Good luck to the tax payers who are paying top dollar for one of the worst schools in the state of NH.

The only thing I can say is this school is very disappointing. The experiences will not be shared, but, after last year, we decided to relocate our home to a different school district. This school is new and really beautiful but seriously needs improvement.
