i went there in 5th grade and was soo sadd when i had to move up best elementary school by far!!


Posted July 27, 2010

My son went here from kindergarten to 5th grade and my daughter still goes here. I love this school with the except of two teachers. not fond of them as quality educators. The principal is the best and works extremely hard to make sure our students are safe and learning. Problems that are brought to the principal are taken care of. My kids love this school and teachers, they do have some of the BEST teachers. The school counselor is great and the rest of the staff are wonderful. Students are great and very few problems. The students seem to love school and the teachers love teaching.

My son is a 2nd grader and has been here since Pre-K. I have loved every teacher he has had. All the staff seems very friendly and out going. We are moving for military purposes and I will truly miss the faculty at Del City Elementary!

My daughter went to this school for Pre k. I think the teachers were great. Some of the staff were rude but other than that I never seen the principal walking through the halls to make sure students are getting to class or asking the parents if they have any concerns. I would think that if you are the principal you would be walking around and looking at your schools talking to the parents and staff. I never had any problems with the teachers. Her teachers always let me know if something happen with my daughter. My daughter is very shy and the teachers brought her out of her shell. She is now socializing with other kids. The teachers were concerned about her and they let me know how she acts and responds in class.

I am a fourth grade teacher at Del City Elementary. I just started teaching there this year. I taught at Epperly for 15 years prior to this year. I love Del El. The parents are great! The principal is wonderful. Just not enough of her to go around. She stays very busy. However, she always took time to come and visit many classrooms to see what students were learning. She often came around with treats for the kids. It has been a great change for me. I love teaching there! :)

At first I loved this school felt like one big family, I was allowed to come into my childs classroom, help the teacher, the school would call me if they needed a sub. My child is now in the 3rd grade and 'This school has been a big disappointment. Soon they pulled all 'extra' activites, a new principal came and never even bothered to eat with the familes on 'Eat with your teacher night'I have tried to get her to make to talk about my concerns. For an example she took reccess a way from the whole school for being too loud in the lunchroom, No drawing allowed anymore . I could not get her to make the time talk with me. My child now has to share her books 1 to every 2 children. I am now moving to get ou of this district!
