I am very happy with the principal, teachers and staff and so is my child.

I think that the school is a great school but some of teachers need to learn how to encourage our children a little more. This school has teachers who really care for our children and some are just here to say that they have a job to go to. (ONLY for the PAY CHECK) I believe that if some teachers would work along side of the parents and vise vera our children would continue to be encouraged and believe within themselves that they could do anything they put their minds to do.

Summerfield Elementary, not only has a great bunch of teachers, but has a very caring fun loving principal, Dr. Rogo. No matter how tired she may be or stressed, you'd never know. She is there each day with a smile on her face. It could be pouring rain and she would be outside wrestling her umbrella to make sure each of our children get into school safely. She makes sure she has a relationship with each child and each parent. At Summerfield they have fun nights at school so the children can see there friend and parents can become familiar with other students and their families. I don't know how else to explain it, but the staff & faculty at Summerfield Elementary school not only makes their students and their families feel welcome, they also make them feel safe as if they were home. And that is a great feeling as a parent to know, that their children can't wait for the next school year to go back to school, where they are welcomed and learn new and exciting things.

I'm very upset about this school as well. We came back to public school this year, and I have a huge regret over that decision. The quality of teaching of my one daughter has been way below average. The teacher is never held accountable when she's not doing her job effectively. Instead too much blame is always placed on the child. I am very involved with my girls education, and have never been to so many meetings in one year at a school. The results of those meetings were so unsuccessful that I'm considering private school again, or renting my home out to move to a school district where the test scores are above average; a positive reflection on the teachers. In viewing previous tests scores here confirms that all I've been saying to them that if the teaching is effective, all the childen can do well.

I have two sons that go to this school, and they love it. I have one in Pre-k and one in K. My Pre-k is so eager to go to school, even on the weekends. I love his teachers and I have open communication with them both. I believe learning and discipline start at home, the things you teach your child will stick with them. Parents that work with their child and the teacher, will have positive actions in there child and in the school.

My son is currently in the school pre-k program. This is his first year in any type of school program and he loves it! The teachers are patient, kind and stern when needed. My son loves it! We had tried several daycare facilities and he would have a fit. At Summerfield the teachers pick them up in the morning and he goes willingly and with a smile. We couldn't ask for more then that.

The children are wild and out of control. The teachers are way to lax. There is to much emphasis on praising the kids and rewarding them for sub standard work. Instead they should be making the child aware of the error and make sure they understand how to do it properly. The principal is excellent and as stated by another parent, she does treat the children as her own. Safty standards are very high, except for the out of control kids.

all the parents sitting here complaining about how bad it is you are pathetic. you say the school is bad and the teaching is pathetic ? well do something about it. The teachers are there for a reason. The principle is extrordinary and treats your children like her own. give people credit.

My son is currently in the preschool program and will begin kindergarten in September. As far as the academics, we will have to see how it goes next year. I feel the teaching could have been a little more intensive in the preschool program, somewhat too relaxed, but. The children are playing in a fenced in area with woodchips and balls and hula hoops. Pathetic. Lets hope they get it together for next year.

Very upset about school myself. We gave public school a chance and regret our decision. I though Neptune schools where receiving Abbott funds? Apparently not all schools in this town. It's unfortunate. In my child's 3 years at this school there is a lack of parent involvement in helping for class parties ect....The teachers my child have had for these years are extrodinary though. I love them! I feel as though the safety outways the teacher quality.

School is rated above average but I do not see it. The teaching is out dated and from my experience the kids are out of control. I can not wait for schools end.

Am very upset with this public school. Am an ducator myself and thought it only right to give the public school a chance. With the Abbott funding they receive the teachers should be trained in the latest techniques instead of practicing outdated ones.
