We moved to Coram in the middle of the year and the transition was smooth. Administration is friendly and helpful. You can tell they care about the children and their school. Parents are involved and friendly in my experience. The teachers that my kids have are amazing and caring. I will have 3 kids going to Coram in September and look forward to a wonderful year.

We transferred in from private school to Coram and are 100% pleased with our decision. First of all, the principal is exceptional. He is calm, poised, involved and accessible. Secondly, the teachers are engaged, enthusiastic and involved with each student and his / her progress. Thirdly, there are many parents involved with the PTA and other events. And, most of all, we have not had any issues with bullying or bad behavior. The school teaches, expects and rewards values such as respect and cooperation. My children have really blossomed here. We were concerned our kids would be lost in the crowd moving from a small school to a large school but I can honestly say that everyone from the principal to teachers they've never had to the aides to the front desk know them by name. The curriculum is excellent and they are challenged. Each of them were student of the month and my son who is now in middle school is on the High Honor Roll. There are many events and activities that go on. So many more opportunities than private school. All in all, this is a great school and we are really happy that we transferred in.

I don't know which was worse, the horror of finding out we were in the Longwood school district or this place. Very low income area with all the problems that go along with it. Very rude woman who sat at the front desk each day, needs an attitude adjustment. Send your kids to private school, we did.

The principals, teachers, the PTA and even the BOE work excellently to create and maintain a healthy academic climate for the children to thrive in both academically and socially. As a parent I am well pleased and can only wish that the principal, and teacher report cards this year would accurately reflect the level of excellence that they dedicate to educating our children.

I love Coram School and all it's teachers with the exception of the lunch menu and lack of nutritional choices. I understand that this occurs in most schools but, we must start the change somewhere and soon. Hot pockets and French Toast Sticks are not a nutritional lunch and we should be teaching our children better nutritional values. Why can't we have vegetables to dip daily, fresh fruit to snack on, salad choices daily and whole grain wheat breads and wraps. I would think that the parents would be willing to pay a little extra in price for alot extra in nutrition.

Academic program in the third grade is wonderful. The teachers are very good. The extracurricular activities don't seem to be there, but I'm not sure how much can be done in the third grade. Overall, the atmosphere is conducive to learning, and my daughter has done very well this year after coming off a bad second grade experience in Maryland.

The school is very up to date with preparing our children for taking standardized tests (ex: giving dbq's in first grade!) with that said, i'm not sure what kind of life skills they are allowing my child to learn and practice. I guess it's the bitter dichotomy of the schools needs vs. The child's needs. The schools need good test scores, but life is not a series of tests outside of school. Life skills learned via hands on lessons or projects would be a much better approach. So far (kindergarten and first grad), i haven't seen any of this kind of instruction being used.

Absolutely wonderful school. Teachers are outstanding, the curriculum is great. Our child has progressed wonderfully. In special Ed however, its not so great. Though, I must say, they have come a long way, and have improved a great deal in the past 3 years.

This district often gets bad mouthed. I have nothing but praises about the school. Both my children attend and love it. I have been very pleased with the teachers and curriculum. The extra activities are great. Children participate in many diffferent activities. My children have become very proficient with the computer thanks to time in computer lab. Excelent music and art program. Children learn to play several instruments. I don't think I could be any happier than I am at Coram Elementary.

My son goes to the Coram School and I've seen a great difference in his work. His Teacher works in groups and one on one. My son is in Kindergarden and he knows how to read, write, add, subtract, problem solve, and sound out words so he can spell them. The teachers at the Coram School are very involved in the childrens thoughts and ideas and really boosts their self-esteem. My daughter is 2 1/2 and I can't wait till she goes here I'm very proud of the work that the adminstration has done. Not only is the school great the PTA is also wonderful and does many great things for the children and families in the school district. Please if your child will be attending this school join the Coram PTA they are there for you and your child.

I have been a parent for 28 years. Three of my children have already gone through the entire district and graduated. I currently have one in Coram elementary with another coming up. I have found Coram school to be better than a private school. The teachers are and always have been extremely supportive of all my children and willing to help them succeed in any way possible. I also was warned 30 years ago about Longwood school district not being that good. I have found that to be completely false. My oldest graduated from Stony brook with her bachelors degree and then with a master's degree from Fordham. My next daughter gaduates in a year from Stony Brook University and my oldest son is currently attending his freshman year in SUNY Cortland. They were provided an excellent education. Good enough to get into State University's which are very competitive. If the motivation to learn is there the teachers and district are ready to provide it.

My son will be entering 1st grade and is eager to start another wonderful school year at Coram Elementary. Full time kindergarten really paid off. My son can read and excels in math. I was extremely pleased with the teacher, Mrs. Candy. She was enthusiastic and energetic. The assistant principal, Mr. Bossert, is a wonderful delight for the children and parents. He is usually at all school events and can clearly see he enjoys his job. The school maintains order and structure beautifully. Parents are welcomed to participate and join in many events. Being fairly new to the district, I am extremely pleased with Longwood!

My son has attended Coram school special education for Kindergarten and first grade. I was sceptical about this school system as it was not rated well, however my experience has been excellent. He took the Terranova test for 1st grade with all marks in the 96-98%. He is on the third grade adademic level. The special education teachers are very hands on and very helpful if you are willing to be a parent that wants to help your child. Now he will be attending 2nd grade and was main streamed. Excellent work to those teachers!

I have a young boy in this school (Kindergarten). I feel his experience has been very good and I was quite impressed with this school on many different levels. I had been forewarned by others that this school district was not rated that well, but I find that to be completely false thus far and I am hoping the remaining years will be as good an experience as the first.

Very impressed with the accomplishments my daughter has achieved. She is reading, writing, adding and subtracting, and she is only in kindergarten. Full day Kindergarten really pays off, she loves Coram Elementary school and her teachers.
