Neely is a great school. My children love going to school. They have never been anywhere else so they don't have anything to compare it to. Every teacher we had was open, approachable, and a good teacher. Neely is strict and consistent across the board. My children understand the expectations and rise ...  Read more

Neely is truly an amazing school. We love the diversity of cultures of the student body. Advanced classes offered in Math, Reading, and Writing allow students to reach their learning potentials. The Spalding and Saxon curriculums give children a strong foundation for life learning. I love that the ...  Read more

We have left the school and it surely was not because of academics (my child had straight As), but because of the teacher quality in 5th grade and the unbearable prison-warden attitude of the principal. The 5th grade teacher was completely disinterested in teaching and as we now see, the students fell ...  Read more

The teachers are not approachable and when you try to go speak with the principal, well you pretty much get the same thing! The staff is not friendly nor they make it fun for the kids. Not to mention my child gets tons of homework, I believe in academics that's why we chose that school, but they over ...  Read more

My daughter attended Neely for Kdg and 1st grade. She is now attending the regular neighborhood school here in Ahwatukee for 2nd grade as we moved over the summer. My daughter misses Neely very much. She complains that she is not being challenged in her new school in the neighborhood. I almost want ...  Read more

Current problems with honors language need to be addressed. The last 2 years the honors language class has had 3 different teachers and introduced new Spring Board curricullum that parents and students are very unhappy with. Principal has not come up with a solution to the problem, so the last 2 years ...  Read more

Dr Chilton is less than desirable. She has no concern for the students. Walks around like a drill sargarent. My 5th grader had MORE homework than my 8th grader. His teacher this year was not at all interested in helping him learning/achieve. More interested in giving a "no". Wouldn't try and deal ...  Read more

I agree that current administration isn't what it used to be. The principal doesn't seem to be involved in day-to-day matters, or have the poise, professionalism, and friendliness, that former principal Blanchard had. Blanchard was superb. Overall the school is decent, especially the teachers. They ...  Read more

So glad we enrolled our child at this school (after leaving another school which was unsatisfactory in our eyes). Excitement to do homework as soon as we get home and wanting to go to school on the weekends must be good signs. The front office staff is organized, friendly and knows students by name. ...  Read more

I have 2 children who attend Neely. We have been there for 5 years and could not be happier with this school. It is a rigorous curriculum. Our kids are always being challenged, but they love this school. Highly recommend.
