This school should be approached with caution as it is not a typical elementary school. Although it is meant to be a community school, it functions as a "gifted magnet" for a large percentage of the student population. Any parent would be prudent to ponder the divisiveness of this arrangement for not only the student population but the teaching staff as well. It would be wise to think about the impact this arrangement has on school-wide extracurriculars particularly those with limited enrollment opportunity--science olympiad, lego robotics, math clubs, chess club. In the absence of its own positive identity, the "base population" is unjustifiably cast in the roll of academic "have-nots." Prospective parents should know that there are safeguards in place to ensure the needs of the gifted are met, unfortunately this leads to an unevenness in resource distribution, and an actual skewing of data and ratios at a numbers level.
We have two kids at Louise Archer. This is our second year. We had very good experience so far. While it is at over capacity, the teachers and the administrators do a great job in creating a nurturing environment. We look forward to having many great years at this school.

We recently moved to area and have 2 kids attending Louise Archer. It has been a wonderful experience. The teachers are great, the academics are strong, and the atmosphere is nurturing. I have nothing but positive things to say about our experience there. It is what a good elementary education should be.
Excellent staff and teachers. The school has a wonderful history that inspires the kids. Great local school in a very busy urban area.
Louise Archer has an exceptional learning environment. The staff and PTA makes a tremendous effort to create a best in class environment for the kids. My son goes to the advanced academic program. He simply loves the enrichment and challenge there. Its great to be in such a peer group. I recommend Louise Archer to every parent.
I was a student and am now a parent of a student This school is exceptional, they have outstanding teachers and a great outlook on education.
I have 2 boys at Louise Archer this is my 4 year. It is a wonderful place for learning for kids. The only downfall is that parents are a little bit to hovering here.
My son is about to 'graduate' from 6th grade at Louise Archer. He has had an excellent elementary school education and is well-prepared to go on to middle school. The teachers and principal are very committed to educating the students and my son has learned so much from all of them over the years. This is a terrific school!
It is one of the best elementary schools. My son is in his 4th grade and has a wonderful caring teacher. And my daughter would join kindergarden next year and we are very excited for her. I strongly recommend this school.
