I have three kids that have attended Primos. Two of my chilldren still go there. I think that its ashame the school doesnt have a better rating. My kids love their teachers as do I. The principal is fantastic and there are alot of parents who want to be involved. Two of my kids have struggled with speech and reading and the teachers have worked hard to help them and to help me with knowing the best ways to help them. The staff is freindly and caring and I couldnt ask for better people to leave my kids with for seven hours a day.

Love Primos Elem School so much. Great teachers and students! Most of the students are well-behaved and compassionate. Never heard any single bullying episodes among the studentry. Homely atmosphere for everybody. Special thanks to Betsy Waer in the office, the best secretary I've ever met, very polite in the telephone and will do her best to help you out when you talk to her in the phone, very motherly to everybody. Our son love the school, teachers and students. Planning to enrol our 2 younger kids instead of going to private school because of our nice experience we had with our older boy, love their atmosphere there. Everybody cares a lot for each other. Bravo, keep it up Primos!!!!

I think the teachers at primos elementary are the best you'll find anywhere but the principal as well as the district seem to be in a panic about the diminishing reputation of the shool district . All of my children have attended primos and 2 are still there. We've been through many principals. the school district has done away with detention so now suspensions happen routinely. Its could be a top notch shool due to the teachers but they need to find a good principal

Primos was is a great school in a struggling district. As in other reviews, the new principal is awesome. He knows the kids by name and they all love him. The kids could be challenged more i.e. harder homework, better Home Reading Program. Some good staff, some bad staff. The school is making changes and I would expect it to rise on the ratings. It is a school of choice in the UDSD.

Primos Elementary School is one of the best. The Principal is great. The kids and staff are very happy with him. I only wish he came sooner. My son went to school there from 1st - 5th grade. This is his last year and I am sorry to say goodbye. All the teachers are great and they CARE about all the kids. It is really a great school once again.

My Son is in K-Primos ES, he was 2 years in pre-k before and I thought K would be a review (boring) for him but I'm glad I was absolutely wrong, since taking the bus (awesome service)'til comes back he's always happy/singing/enthusiastic. At Primos every day it's a new/learning day with art, music, gim class, library/reading a book time and other activities as a part of a great education. He already can read books alone and write single sentences, his math is ++ too.Young teachers with incredible experience, care & love made possible this.I think Primos ES at Upper Darby School District it's the best !!

All four of our boys love this school. The teachers are phenominal, and all the kids get involved in a wide range of grade appropriate activities. I don't care the the principal very much, but I don't have to deal with her so I guess that's not a big deal. Betsy Waer in the office is the best secretary I've ever had the fortune of meeting!!!

My son transferred to Primos in April 2002 from New Jersey. He is shy, and was very concerned he'd be picked on by the other kids or have no friends at all. My son has thrived at Primos, and has more friends than I can keep track of, and is actually looking forward to school starting! Furthermore, I've had wonderful experiences with the administrative department and teachers when dealing with issues in a timely manner as they arise. Special thanks to Betsy Waer. I would have been lost without her good humor and willingness to help get things situated for my son when we first transferred. I'm thrilled my children will have the opportunity to grow academically as well socially in a school as wonderful as Primos!
