New Hanover-Upper Frederick is a very good school. The parent involvement within the school is excellent and it makes you feel like you are a big part in your child's education. They offer parents many opportunities to volunteer and be a part of the team. The school offers a substantial curriculum and they care about their students. I know there are so many good schools out there and their teachers, but I would love to see New Hanover-Upper Frederick recognized for their hard work. I hope the teachers and administration know that parents truly appreciate their hard work.

I am currently a freshman in high school. I have already been to 5 different schools, but this one was my favorite. I went here from 4th-6th grade, and I really enjoyed it. All of the teachers are very focused and concerned and each have something to offer. They also have a great music program, such as band, orchestra, general music.

Boyertown School Dist. as a whole is not known for being easy to work with when you have a child who has learning difficulties. We are raising a grandchild whose mom went through NHUF as well. NHUF seems to be doing better now than back then, but jury still out on this. Kindergarten teacher, Mrs. Kehs, seemed to be pretty on top of things and did well for our grand daughter. 1st grade teacher, Mrs. Kontes, seems to be able to get a handle on our grand daughters needs pretty quickly. Will any of this translate into the help she needs to succeed, time will only tell. Parents Have to be their childs own best, very vocal, advocate. Patents must stay on top of everything to make sure that children in this school district succeed. District has habit of sweeping things under the carpet in hopes they go away.

McVey Elementary, Newark DE My son attented grade3 for year 2004-05. McVey is great school to send your kid as the teachers are well qualified. One thing I would like to complaint about is the building. The building is old and needs renovation and specially it doesn't have the aircondiotners.... which makes the students as well as teachers quite uncomfortable.

Have had two children go through this school and I am well satisfied with the results. The faculty and staff at this school give the impression that they are genuinely concerned with the education and welfare of the students they are entrusted with. In six years have never had a complaint or an issue with any teacher or staff member. Extracurricular activities in the form of music and art are offered. Parent attendance is high at the seasonal concert recitals and the annual art show and DARE graduation. This is a wonderful school and I have no complaints aout the education and experience my children have had here.
