James Buchanan El School
Amount of homework: Just right

With all the pressures in life often time working families do not get much time at home in the evenings. After a full day of school and then aftercare there is no reason for homework every night! This school understands there needs to be a balance.

Develops respect: Strongly agree

The principal is very visible and proudly reminds students to "Be Respectful, Be a Bulldog!" The bulldog is the school mascot. Principal Moran is a wonderful example of leadership and creating a respectful environment because of the respect she shows to her students, parents and staff.

There are several awareness events such as Pinwheels for Peace, Veterans Day Assembly and collections and other initiatives designed to give the students an understanding of the world outside of what they are familiar with and to foster a caring, giving spirit.

Excellent principal, teacher, special education department and very involved and well organized PTA all working together with open minds and open lines of communication. All are very accessible.

Ms. Golden and her team are incredible. We could not be any more grateful our son is in her class! She has an inherent gift for understanding children with special needs who, above all, want to feel good about themselves! Since being in her class, my son's confidence and communication have sky rocketed! It has made all the difference in the world for a boy (and family) who needed her!

My daughter really enjoys attending James Buchanan Elementary. The teaching staff is great and the PTA is strong and very involved. I am very satisfied with the leadership.
