We raised three children inthe englewood neighborhood and they all attended Englewood Elementary School. Englewood is an older intercity neighboorhood and the school is still a very nice school. My two grandsons attened Englewood thier first couple of years before moving to another district in the Salem.
Englewood is a super school! Parents are involved, teachers are positive role models for children, and the school adds to the value of the neighborhood. My wife and I have two kids there now, and hope our two smaller kids get to go, too.
I have three children who attend this school. All three love it and the teachers. I agree that they have made the most with what they can due to budget cuts. Englewood is why I will not move out of the area! The school strives for parents to be involved. The classes stay in tune with the children and advise them and us of current concerns in the community that may affect our children and their safety.
