This school is amazing! Our second child is now at Driscoll and we could not be happier. Our principal is not only committed and caring, but also highly respected and admired by the teachers and families alike. (We all marvel how she commits herself to knowing each and every student by name ~ and usually younger siblings! ~ within the first days of school!) The teachers are committed to the overall develop of the students and a highly active PTO supports them in their efforts. The end result is a positive learning atmosphere where students are encouraged to be both motivated scholars AND good citizens. We are very proud to be part of the Driscoll community!

The principal micro-manages the teachers. They cannot teach in the loving manner I believe they want to, and that our children deserve. Children's needs are not being met. It is critical that they build confidence for the coming years. This school frustrates the normal patterns for such achievement.

Driscoll is an excellent school. The principal Miss Kurtz knows every child in the school by name and I think that is great. The school makes sure every student acheives in their grade. The teachers are very nice and love the kids like their own. My child is in 5th grade and in Mrs. Goecke's class. She has been there from 1st-5th grade. They got rid of 1st when she was in 2nd grade. I hope you would choose this school if you had a choice and I guarentee you will like it and so will your child.

The academic programs were above average. The school provided ample opportunities for our child in terms of classroom instruction and field trips. There are many extracurricular activities for the children and many opportunities to be creative. In the four years our child attended she was able to visit the state capital, COSI, historic Centerville, the Dayton philharmonic, Grant Nature Center, Cox arboreteum, etc. And there are many opportunities for families such as the spring carnival and Doughnuts for Dads. Our child had so much fun and loved all of the teachers and staff. Even the cafeteria food was a treat! We miss this school!

This is a fantastic school. The principal knows 95% of the children by name. The classes are fun and the kids learn a lot with hands-on projets.
