Maywood Hills Elementary School 5

Posted November 19, 2013

Maywood Hills is a truly wonderful school. The teachers are highly qualified with the majority holding Masters degrees. They are very conscientious, communicate well with parents, and provide extra experiences for the kids, such as an overnight for 4th graders at Pioneer Farm, which the teachers do not get extra pay for. The principal is outstanding and very supportive of teachers, families, and students. Parents are highly involved which adds to the warm community feeling. The PTA is very active and inclusive, providing many services (scholarships, art & science instruction, library assistance, etc.), after school enrichment programs, staff & teacher support, and many family events. There are many children from Hispanic or lower income homes, as well as children from affluent families and the population is socio-economically diverse (although I can't say it's very culturally or racially diverse.) The students and teachers are respectful. Bullying and teasing is not really a problem here as it is in many schools. Maywood has some special needs kids in the integrated program, and there is a lot of acceptance and helpfulness here. My kids have loved Maywood and so have we!

The principal wants parents to communicate with him. He supports his staff with a computer lab, tech specialist, science lab and part -time teacher and an excellent librarian. Some teachers are new, and just need experience, but they have the support of the other teachers. PTA is working hard to bring in more programs for the children. Enrollment is around 600, will probably top off at 650 in the next 2 years.

Maywood Hills is really a gem of a public school. The staff is both passionate and professional and our oldest daughter has really thrived there for the past two years. Not only are the teachers excellent themselves, but they enable parental involvement in the classrooms through the art and science docent programs as well as reading and writing helpers. My wife and I were both able to participate this past year, and it was really worth our while. The PTA is also strong and active and has just band together to add $30k worth of additional play equipment to the school playground, addressing perhaps the schools only weak spot. This year my daughter placed into the EAP program, so she is off to Shelton View, but we will miss Maywood and are looking forward to next year when her sister will start their.

The staff at Maywood Hills was very instrumental in getting my granddaughter the special resources help she needed for certain problems she was experiencing. This helped her tremendously with adjustments and improved her academics.

My son moved to Maywood this year from a Catholic School. We have been incredibly impressed by the Principal Kelly Aramaki as well as his 2nd grade teacher Linda Norwalk. The school is well organized, the academics are challenging, and the parents are really involved. We are lucky to have this resource in our neighborhood and my son has really benefited from change. He has Aspergers Syndrome but the enviroment has allowed him to be blend in unnoticed as well as be really successful in a regular classroom.
