Unfortunatly this school has changed in the last 2 years, they do not encourage parental involvement and the principal acts more like a warden than a principal and it feels like she purposely tries to keep parents out of the school. I really enjoy the teachers though, they are friendly and let me know when there are problems. My kids have been to 3 different schools in the last year and they begged my not to pull them out of this when i was considering private school. Even if I have problems with the way the school is run, my kids are happy and that is whats important.

I have a daughter at Ellen Myers, and both of us are extremely unhappy with the school. There are no arts (music, art, school plays, etc.) in the curriculum, but worse - there is no recess!! The children are not allowed to talk at lunch, or even sit by their friends. Basically, they are not allowed to be kids! The teachers are nice; however, I often find that they teach my daughter wrong information that I have to 'unteach'. Parents, make sure you find out if a school bothers to teach more than math and English (this one doesn't) as well as its policies (they do spank) before sending your child there.

My daughter went to Ellen Myers and has only good comments for the faculty and staff there. Our experience with this school was very positive.

This shcool would be excellent if the school would provide lockers to the students so they could secure their items. And if they wouldn't put so much emphasis on sales for the school. When it comes to the end of the year the children are frightened into believing the State tests reflect their grade or position in classrooms the following year. The teachers are caring and friendly with the parents. The school really made me feel welcome and treated my children with respect.
