Profile Completeness


Want to improve this school’s profile? You can!

All schools on GreatSchools begin with BASIC completeness, which includes important information like contact details and test scores. It’s up to the school community to take the next steps. As a parent or community member, you can share what you know with other families by writing a review or answering a few questions about what the school offers. As a school leader, you can upload photos, describe school programs, and more with an Official school profile.

The completeness meter moves to INTERMEDIATE, then ADVANCED, and finally HONOR ROLL as you complete the following: 10 or more reviews, at least 1 photo, and 9 program questions parents find helpful.

The teachers, well some of the teachers that I see in the morning are not friendly at all..no one says anything to anyone except their other teacher pals...I really hope they're not this unfriendly with the students..

Our experience has been wonderful at Memorial. My daughter and I absolutely loved the school. The principal is an amazing leader. She cares about the children and looks out for their best interest. The secretaries are very helpful and kind. I believe the attitude of the staff is a reflection from the principal. I believe that is starts at the top. My daughter's teacher was also great. They gave my daughter speech and helped her every way possible. I highly recommend this school.

My kids went to this school and all they learned was how to take tests. They spend months just teaching to the test. They didnt learn anything else. I was very disapointed. My kids now go to a private school.

My daughter is now in first grade and she absolutely loves school. She is doing very well and more importantly she has a love of learning. The prinicpal is an amazing leader and was the key in deciding to enroll at Memorial vs. neighborhood Catholic schools. She is serious and stern and no-nonsense. The children here are safe, and can be assured that the Prinicpal has their interests at heart. The teachers are extremely dedicated and inspiring role models. And yes, there does seem to be good relationship between the teachers and Principal, but i wouldn't want it any other way.

My son went to Memorial School from K-5 grade. the first few years were good. Once the Principal retired and a new one started it went down hill. the new principal is all for the teachers and does not defend or help the students. There is no sports offered or clubs.

My child attended Memorial grades kdg-5 and as a student she has been encouraged to strive to be the best. As a parent I found the staff warm and welcoming. Every year the teacher got to know my childs needs, not only academically but personally. I found that there is a very small but dedicated group of parents that consistantly are there for the school, staff and students. There could definitely be more parent involvement with the size enrollment that we currently have. The school is currently under construction due to the passing of the referendum and will only become bigger and better. We have only had a wonderful experience and will find it very hard to leave the extended family we now have.
