Our two kids (grade 2 and K) started attending Tubman Elementary 2 months ago. So far, we are happy with the school. The teachers and the assistants are very competent; they know well each of our kid's strengths and weaknesses, they have given us plenty of home practice materials to keep them challenged. They truly care for the kids' education and well-being. Communications = great. The principal is always around; you see her chatting with the kids, the parents and I've seen her sitting down in classes to observe. The building is clean and organized. The kids in their classrooms always seem to be in controlled, calm and well behaved. I only wish the school gets more funding next year to invest a bit more in arts and music.
My children have been there for a year and we all really love the school. The facilities are great, students and staff are very diverse and respectful. My kids have learned a lot in one year and enjoyed every minute of it.
As the new vice president of Tubman School PTA I am very proud to say that Tubman test scores in reading and math improved dramatically. The principal is very committed and cares much about the school. The teachers are also committed and care about the students.
