Ardmore Elementary School 5

Ardmore is a small and diverse public elementary school in an excellent school district. I really like the community of parents/caregivers, families, teachers, staff and administrators. The values of inclusion, positivity, community and diversity are felt and appreciated in this small community.

We are very grateful for Ms. Melina Marulis at Ardmore Elementary. Ms. Marulis has all the characteristics of a exceptional teacher; she is organized/structured, humorous, kind/warm, and patient. She has particular strong communication skills and a strong commitment to making sure the students under her care are learning. She believes in regular encouragement and takes her time to understand the needs of her children. We are so grateful to have Melina Marulis as our daughter's first grade teacher!

Mr. Miller, the principal, always makes time for kids parents, and is open to ideas, even tough challenges. He is truly passionate about making sure every child succeeds, no matter what challenges they're starting out with. Thanks Mr. Miller for your dedication!

The staff is pretty active on social and behavior modelling. They have a positive discipline approach and disrespectful behavior is promptly dealt with.

Ardmore has a strong curriculum around multiple school virtues that are taught and modeled each month, from principal all the way down. Parents are also given ways to talk about and reinforce these traits.

We love this school and its community. The teachers and the principal and assistant principal are dedicated and build relationships with kids and parents. Ardmore has some unique advantages, it is a very diverse school and it pulls from a range of areas in Bellevue, so you get the Bellevue School District curriculum same as any other local school but your kids also get exposure to many different languages, cultures, and some innovative ways of teaching since they have become skilled at bringing the "melting pot" together. I feel that the kids are exposed not just to good academics but also to good social and cultural themes at this school. The PTSA is small but active, always opportunities for parents to be involved and the teachers invite parent volunteers in the classrooms too.

The school in the last couple of years feels like a great community. My daughters' grades have improved and I thing she is more than well prepared for middle school. The new principle is just awesome.
