My daughter went for K in Mrs. Seamster class. Thanks for making school fun and my daughter is in first right now in Ms Hoffman class and my daughter simply LOVES school. On weekend she says I cannot wait for Monday to come. The curriculum is awesome and mathematics and reading comprehension. She will look for math puzzles in everything she will do in home. LOVE the school and principal is always there, and excellent communication between prent and school. Keep up the good work
As a Parent, I can't be happier to see my dotr progress by leaps and bounds. She started from K and now is in the 5th grade! Amazing, excellent and all the best key words go to this school. My dotr was luck to have very good teachers like Ms Moretti, Ms Lechelt, Ms Meiramma. Keep up the good work!
Excellent !!! Excellent !!! Excellent..... Nice teachers, good principal, good facilities.... My kid simply love the school and so I am.... Thanks to all the staff of the school....
3 years in this school and very happy with quality of teachers and board as well.
I am so proud that my kids (currently in 2nd and 5th grade) are part of the Menlo Park Family. The Principal and the teachers take extra efforts in helping the kids grow in a safe and nurtured environment. The new teachers coming on board are very tech savvy and it will ultimately help the kids in the long run.
Menlo park is awesome ! Mrs. Guarnieri, Mrs Goldstein and Brazer are amazing. I am so proud to be part of this school. These teachers are so engaging and committed.
My daughter went to 2nd grade here, she had ms Lacasto and Ms Osinky and they were good.Of the 2, Ms lascto was excellent, ms Osinky needs a little more practice academically, else no one can beat her, caring wise. I wanted to know if anyone had any experience with Ms Giuffrida. Anythng one her is gud.
This is such a great school academically. My child continues to flourish. Great teachers/mentors. The only problem is the physical facilities- the school can really use a new state of the art gym, a cafeteria. computer room with adeqaute number of computers and better outdoor landscaping including playground(s) and parking for parents/visitors.
my son started KG here, this is the best school. he loves his class. Ms. Kohut is the best of the best.. god bless her for giving such a great foundation to these kids. my rating will be 10/10
My child started her KG year in this school. I was worried like all other parents but was really happy after few weeks of her starting there. She has now finished her Grade -1; both the years passed so quickly as she had lot to learn. She enjoyed her school as her teachers were great. Also the principal of school is a warm lady who is so involved in school activites. My 2nd child will be starting her KG next year & i know she will be in good hands.
I have 2 kids in Menlo Park, kindergarten and 2nd grade. They thrive at school and I personally find the academic level very good. The kids are nice and well behaved, the teachers are very competent and those my children had and currently have clearly love their students and their job. Lat but not least, Ms. Cotoia, is a wonderful principal, very involved, approchable and efficient.
I loved Menlo Park School! When I was in Menlo I was a safety partol and it was awesome! My favorite teacher would probably be a tie between Ms. Feldman( or Zlotnick her maiden name) and Ms. Meirama. They are soooooo cool! I was so lucky to have them. Right now my sister is in there and she loves being a safety patrol just like me. Her post is a kindergarden classroom and she always tells me about them. I loved Menlo and I always will.
I have two children at Menlo. I couldn't be happier for my children. It's a very 'family-oriented' school. I think the principal does a great job running the school. My daughter is in Ms. Taylor's class this year. I am so thrilled for my daughter. Ms. Taylor is wonderful. She is great with the children. My daughter is having a great year so far. She has blossomed so much in the few months that she's been in her class.
The principal is terrific. very accomodating, smiling and very approachable. Teachers are very active, innovative and very encouraging just like their principal. My children were transferees and I noticed that they leap a lot on their education. i was so amaze by their transformation in just a few months to be with this school. Im so grateful to them.
Both my children are enrolled in Menlo Park Elementary School. Teachers encourage the kids to do their best. Ms. Taylor is the best first grade teacher. On the first day of school my daughter came home and said that my teacher is the best because she listens. I was surprised and happy that she got a good teacher. All the teachers in Menlo Park School is very good and encourage kids.
School is overcrowded. Poor teacher/student focus. Individual children's needs are not met.
High academic standards Music, art and sports programs are good Parent involvement is high
my son enjoys the special ed programs the school has to offer and has benefitted tremendously from the knowledgeable teachers.Regular and extra curricular activities are among the better ones the other schools in the district have to offer.
Both my children are enrolled in Menlo Park Elementary School. The school has integral approach and some of the activites are not found in the same district area. Each child is encouraged to do their personal best. The teachers are highly skilled and work hard to bring out the best in each child.
The school has gotten terribly overcrowded,and there is extremely limited parent participation, especially from the more diverse ethnic groups at the school, who actually make up the majority of the school population.
