While I have encountered some wonderful teachers, like all schools, some remain lacking. The leadership of the school often fails to work as a partner with parents and acts as more of an authoritative voice with parents. Despite some wonderful qualities about the school, there is a lack of a developed curriculum for more advanced learners, as well as an unwillingness to meet the needs of these individual children. There is a low standard for achievement and once that standard is met there does not seem to be an effort to move beyond that place. In addition, recess is partially taken for disciplinary issues, which is counterproductive for young children in a primary school. This method leads to further misbehavior and academic distraction.
The staff is extremely helpful and willing to work on individualized education plans. The school also recently added extra security features and had updated classroom technology. My only complaint is that the school building itself seems to be too small for all of the children attending.
I love Marlowe Elementary. This small school is a great environment for children. To this day, when my son who is now a 7th grader, visits this school, the teachers and staff remember him by name. I found everyone to be very caring and concerned for the children there.
My son is finishing 2nd grade at Marlowe Elementary. We have had great experiences both years he has been there. He enjoys school and I have found the staff to be very helpful and very caring toward the children. We will miss Marlowe when he moves on next school year.
My daughter attended this school for only 4 months before I transferred her out. The staff is unhelpful and they are not very pleasant to children. The prinicpal is unwilling to accept that there are problems in the school and will not do anything about it.
