One of the best school. Teachers go out of the way to make sure that gifted kids are fully occupied and not bored! Had Mrs Brown so far and she's amazing. One of the best! So is Mrs Tukino, Mrs Young, Mrs Bonnarigo! Thanks

Second child in this school, no problems with Defino School over combined 8 years between 2 kids. Kinds always wants to go back to school, the older one now in MMS still in touch with her teachers from Defino. Friendly and professional staff, diverse student population with high rankings on the state standardized tests.

All around great school from the faculty to the PTA. Combined 8 years between my two kids and while some of the teachers were shared, many were not and I never had any issues. The new art teacher re-introduced the excitement of art in the kids in a way I have never seen.

The school has a culture of caring for each individual student. There is an effective anti-bullying program and the school teaches and recognizes students for their displays of good character. They have a monthly recognition ceremony. The principal, Mr. Camera, visits every student on their birthday and you can tell he really loves kids! And the kids love him back.

Second year in the Defino - the teachers are great! We had Mrs. Gellman last year and have Mrs. Miller this year. They both are caring for the kids progress and trying to make the school fun really enjoyable. I don't know if other schools have it, but Defino actually has Advance learning programs for for the bright kids starting from the first grade. It seems like a small thing, but the school seem to really care about kids. The school also has computer education starting from the first grade. My daughter adores all of the teachers including special education (well may be except for music)

Both my daughters attended this school and loved it. The teachers are very caring, nurturing and commited to making sure the children are learning and growing at their own pace.
