Ms. Jackson is passionate about making this school better and better. We have had a wonderful experience, and our son is learning more advanced concepts than many of his friends at schools that everyone clamors to get into. We're seeing more neighborhood involvement, so I expect Reilly to keep improving.
My daughter goes here and loves her teachers and classmates. She's beginning first grade and already knows how to read from attending Kindergarten here.
This is our second year at Reilly and we LOVE it. It is obvious that Mrs. Jackson (Principal) loves the kids and wants the best for them. The parent involvement gets better each year and the PTA is trying to be more of a presence. I would recommend this school to anyone!
This is our second year at Reilly. My daughter loves the school and the staff. Mrs. Settimi is an excellent teacher. Everyone I have come in contact there has been super friendly and informative. I hope to be able to keep all my children at this school.
This is a great school! I love the teachers and I love that they welcome the parents to come and be involved! I love how great and friendly the staff is! Best school ever!!!
I get the feeling the staff is put off by the help parents offer. The school in general is very disorganized. The PTA is weak and needs a stronger presence in the school, if the administration will allow it. Fortunately I feel my children are getting a good education but I think the overall campus experience could be better for the parents, faculty and students
Great new principal. Innovative and enthusiastic leadership. Strong teachers. These elements make for a successful school.
Our new principle is wonderful. She really has the childrens best intrests at heart. She is friendly, and a good disiplinarian as well. Overall, I think our schools has improved leaps and bounds since Mrs. Jackson took over. She has updated the school, and made sure our childrens learning environment is up to par. She involves the children, and makes them feel important, rather than a number. I hope to see continued improvement in the future
Our son has had a wonderful experience for his kindergarten year. His teacher has been energetic, caring, and purposeful. I have no complaints whatsoever about the academic rigor. I have had a poor experience as a parent, however. Parent involvement seems peripheral and spotty. Organization is poor. Hopefully, next year a new principal with breathe in new energy and this clean, bright little school will get the energy it needs to move forward and improve.
This school has been great. My child will begin her second year there and she blossomed, thrived and was the happiest I have seen since she moved. I will be enrolling my youngest for Kinder this fall and we are very excited. The teachers and principal know what they are doing and run a very tight ship. I know this school would top the charts if more parents were involved.
I am greatly disappointed with the principles lack of disciplinary actions when a threat to a child is ignored and not brought to the parents attention. Also the principal does not discipline the child at fault and the victim must withdraw in order to not see the bully.
My children are enjoying their first year at Reilly. The staff is great and want every child to succeed.
Seems like a well organized school. They run a tight ship there and the teachers and supporting staff are very professional.
I love this school! The teachers are great and my children feel successful and secure. Thanks for being such a great place for my kids!!!
Well my kids been going to MTR since last year and boy do I just love this school especially the school staff OMG amazing o and the teachers Ms. Hernandez and Ms. Quiroz they are my number 1!
My Children have gone to MTR since both were in kindergarten.. This school was great when Jan Jones was there, but since then the school has gone downhill. Students are bullied, tormented, and parents are looked at like intruders. The discipline level is pathetic and the curriculum needs much improvement. Parents need to be able to be more involved with the curriculum and child performance. Sometimes fliers are sent home, but more needs to be done.. We miss Jan Jones... My children have been pulled & we are all much happier elsewhere...
Things are changing at Reilly since the downsizing of the district, and I am so glad we chose to start there! The neighborhood is rallying behind this little gem of a school. Our teacher is great, very attuned to the kids needs and parent responsive. The TAG teacher also gets my kudos!
A really great neighborhood elementary school. The staff is caring. There is alot for my older child to participate in. I am very pleased!
I would like to see more extra curricular activities and better communication on what is going on at the school. I either get flyers late or not at all about school programs, etc.
