Many of the teachers work very hard to support the kids and truly want to make a difference. However some of the teachers are causing more harm than good to students with special needs. The district as a whole provide very little to support to meet the needs of a dyslexic student. The programs and support systems that are put in place by this school and the district are very weak. Given all of this I must say the special needs teachers work very hard to provide a good program with their limited resources.
I was impressed with this school, teachers were wonderful but, some of the assistants are not so good. The school is older but, still well maintained. Sometimes a goat from the farm next door will enter the school in warm weather and cause a commotion but, that is very cute. The only problem that I had is the constant need for students to sell things and it seems that the students whose parents contribute to the school many times are treated better than other students. Other than that-good school.
We have been involved with the school since its opening. It is wonderful and the kids have soared academically and socially! Keep up the great work ADE!
Alton Darby is a great school with a diverse population and great teachers!
We have fallen in love with ADE, particularly their preschool program. The staff is so knowledgeable and helpfull. We truly feel that our children are getting the best education at ADE! -H Van Orden
ADE is a fine school with outstanding leadership and parent involvement. The multi-age classroom has helped my son tremendously. I love ADE!!
