Redmond Elementary comes together once again. This year the Redmond Elementary community along local business help were able to raise funds in one year to build a new playground. Parents assisted in prepping the location of the new playground by working together, side by side to remove sod. Job completed in 3 hours, it was a TEAM effort and once again shows what a strong community Redmond Elementary has.

My children attend Redmond El. We appreciate the well rounded community and integration of so many cultures and languages. While there can be an impact to testing scores due to so many ESL children, the positive impact of cultural exposure is excellent. Parents who do engage are terrific. There are many parents who could join in to enhance the experiences of the children. Redmond offers a terrific set of services for children to accommodate different learning curves and does a tremendous job of not making those children stand out and ensures the children keep pace. The campus is very safe and centrally located. It is the oddest residential borders of the elementary schools in the city, but it is not enough to be a major issue, just not always ideal.

I like this school because it has good teachers who pay attention to every student. Teacher and the all staff members are very inspiring and they encourage kids in a positive way so that kids can improve their self in a better way. I appreciate that they give homework and encourage kids to do that. Overall Redmond Elementary schools environment is very nice in every aspect, caring, inspiring, loving and overall am very happy that my daughter studies there.

Please don't have your child with Ms. B.... (I cannot write her full name because the site does not allow that.) She is mean, a bully, and humiliates her students. A lot of parents have removed their kids from her because she is a bully. My kid last year had her and I heard a lot of stories about her. I totally agree with the review prior to mine. Same experience!

We just moved here from the east coast and this school has not met my academic expectations at all. The school we left was in the top 20 schools in Massachusetts and I have yet to see any overlap in the education system here. I understand the no child left behind philosophy, but the children that are at the top of their game are losing out and are left stagnant and bored. My child can do all the math homework for the week in 10 minutes. So the rest of the week we provide her with more challenging home school curriculum. She comes home daily and says she is bored at school. I'm not sure what the policy is for behavioral management but my daughter has come home frequently complaining they missed recess and had to sit with their foreheads on their desk for 15 minutes because a few kids couldn't get their act together. Why does everyone miss out for the wrong doings of others and the head on the desk thing is a big no no. It is demeaning and a form of humiliation to the children. Behaviors can be addressed in a lot more positive manners in my opinion. Overall I am disappointed in this school. I do not feel they are committed to the child who exceed the state standards.

We just moved here from another country and our children really enjoy the school, which has good teachers and caring parents. The ELL teacher is excellent and our children's English is improving quickly. I also appreciate the diversity of the students and the families. We are glad we chose this school.

The teachers and staff could care less about the childrens education, they send them home with these homework packets that nobody cares to check for errors before the kids get them so the kids are learning wrong information, the staff bully the children and some make perverted comments toward the kids and the staff ignore it and dont take any action to fix the problem. In my opinion its the lowest of the low and a sad disgusting place.

My son attended 1st. grade in thsi school with a lovely, warm, welcoming, experienced and awesome teacher. So far, he had his best school year ever in this school, he made lots of friends from different cultures which was amazing, he learned reading and writing smoothly and successfully supported with love, patience and care. The school staff and PTA are awesome. We moved to Bothell, WA and sadly needed to left this awesome school. We d love to be a "Redmond El Hawk" for the rest of my son s elementary years :( This school deserves not a 10 but a 11! :)

I chose Redmond Elementary for my children because it embraces its diversity without hesitation or awkwardness, both problems commonly found in other schools in the area. Students of different cultural and economic backgrounds, as well as special needs, feel accepted and welcome in an environment of tolerance, fostered by parents, teachers and staff. Parental involvement could be better, but the parents that do get involved in their child's school are truly devoted to their tasks. Volunteering at Redmond El feels like being part of a large family.

Redmond Elementary is a very nice school with a very qualified staff. Our family needed a smaller school with smaller class sizes. Unfortunately the public school can not afford to supply our child with this enviroment.
