My son has attended this school since Kindergarten and is currently in second grade. I cannot say enough wonderful things about this school. The teachers and principals are very caring and always open to discuss any matters if needed. He has learned so much and has excelled. They have Guided Reading and Math groups which allow him to be challenged. All of the parents are so nice and welcoming. The PTA is very involved and brings in authors, as well as a fabulous Science Fair with different presenters for each grade. I would absolutely recommend this school!

All the people working here are wonderful. They all care about our kids in a whole way, not only education but their social development. We come from another country and they have always treated us in a kind and understanding manner. I our kid had any issue with a non pleasant kid they jump right in and help the kids to respect each other. I feel free to contact the teachers and staff at any moment and they always respond right away to any question or situation. My daughter's diverse background was embraced and they make her feel so proud of it. The after school clubs are a plus and their band and orchestra are wonderful,my daughter is playing an instrument in each one,this is amazing, because she is not only getting musical instruction but she is really developing her taste for different styles of music. The art teacher really interacts with the kids and my daughter's inclination for art gets motivated all the time. Gym profesor is wonderful and the best, the kids love him cause he makes such a joyfull moment one that is usually tedious and hard. As part of the ESL, my daughter learn English so fast and she also learn to love books, and this brings me to the Library, the staff really creates a nice atmosphere and the kids become so independent choosing from a large varierity. This is the last year for my daughter and it makes us really sad cause we've enjoyed these years and we won't forget all the good experiencies and all the support that we have receive from our homeroom teachers and staff.

This is the best school in our district. My son has attended K-5, is a 5th grader now and simply loves going to school. He has so many opportunities available here. The school encourages parent participation, and the PTA does a wonderful job in planning events for the kids and their families. It will be sad when he is done this year, but he moves on to DeMasi Middle, and I couldn't be more thrilled about that!

I think the academic program is excellent. My children have excelled in all areas, due to the fact that the reading program is outstanding. In kindergarden they are already learning phonics, spanish, music, math and many other subjects in a caring ,fun way that makes education successful for everyone. There is availability of many different clubs. Including but not exclusively music, fun sports club, student council, art club, mediation, and so many others that are well rounded and a fun way of learning more and making new friends. We have a large % of parent involvement with the PTA and volunteers for all the fun activities the PTA provides throughout the year. Some of them include the ice cream social which is held at night in the spring. All families are invited and all students get a free sundae with any fixings you can imagine. Lots of fun and games 1

Francis S Demasi Elementary is an excellent school. In the school my son attended before coming to Demasi, he was always 2 years advanced in his academics. They were so far ahead at Demasi that he actually had to catch up. Their music, art and extracurricular activities are excellent. My son is never without something to do or join. They keep the parents very informed and incourage out participation. The special services are excellent. My son has attended several schools and this one has been the best by far.
