I didn't realize how below average Memorial was until I had something to compare it to. Upon switching schools to the Clearview district, Memorial is way behind the times. As far as curriculum goes, they don't do nearly as much as my son does now. My son's school has smartboards in every classroom and overall, the parent involvement and enthusiasm is surely lacking at Memorial. So glad we left!!

The quality at Memorial is outstanding in my opinion.All the teachers that I have met or heard about have exceeded my expectations as well as other parents I have spoken to. As far as the music, art and extracurricular activities at memorial, my child has expanded her creativity and imagination beyond where I expected it to. The teachers for these programs have kept my child looking forward to the next day all throughout the year. The level of parent involvement I believe is reasonable. Of course more would always be better, but you can only ask so much from working parents. I was a home mother for my daughter's class and my involvement was more than most parents. However, the teachers were more than appreciative towards me and left me feeling rewarded for my efforts. What a great school! My recommendations remain here!

Pitman Memorial school is a great disappointment overall. The educational experience that my family has experienced since 2002 when my first child started first grade has been mediocre at best. The current year 2005-2006 when my second child started kindergarten has been the absolute worst. The attitude overall seems to be, 'let's maintain the status quo.' The teachers are below average as far as balancing attitude, curriculum, ingenuity, love of teaching, care and compassion for a student's emotional and educational well-being. In other words, 'it's a job and a paycheck.'
