11 Parent Reviews for James D Price School

James D. Price Elementary is on a Army Instillation. It has combined classes because the population is under 100 students. The teaching staff this year is all new to the school besides one teacher who was taught year prior, but they are all dedicated to the education and the children. The PTO helps ...  Read more

This is not a functional school. While the teachers are doing the best with what they have, this school is a complete joke. It should not be open. Besides the lack of basic necessities (working bathrooms with adequate toiletries, shade structures over play areas, an on-site principal, etc.), there ...  Read more

The last review had it spot on-RUN from this school! If you care about the education of your children you WILL NOT like this school! At all. We spent 4 years there and the teacher turn over rate is a joke! Each year the school gets at least 3 new teachers (oftentimes in the middle of the school year) ...  Read more

Run, don't walk away from this school! I thought small clalss sizes would be a plus, but this school is so small it lacks basics a school should have like a school nurse, and on site teachers for specials, and a functional cafeteria. The administration here (basically one of the teachers!) have no ...  Read more

I am very pleased with the attention that is devoted to my children. The classes are small and it is a very comfortable and safe environment. I do not have to worry. The teachers are dedicated to the students 100% and so many parents are involved. I feel this school is appropriate and a wonderful school ...  Read more

Although there are good teacher-student ratios some years, most of the time each teacher not only has a large number of students, but also two grade levels in the same classroom. Children as young as 2nd grade are expected to focus and work independantly (often on what I consider busywork) while the ...  Read more

The smaller student population is a wonderful advantage. The students get more one on one interaction with teachers. I would not want my child anywhere else. The parent involvement is high and so is the instructor and priciple involvement. You could not have a better school in yuma.

The school is the perfect setting for learning. It's small size is conducive for great instruction and training. The teachers have been teaching for a number of years, so they aren't fresh out of school. There is a sense of family there instead of just being a student with a number.

Although small, and it doesn't have a science program (though no schools in yuma district one does at this time) the staff gives 100% all the time to the children. I feel this school is a treasure compare to the bigger schools in the city and gladly drive 20 miles daily for my children to get such ...  Read more

This is a very basic school, no lunch available, no science taught, and seems they need more money and funds to upgrade the school, i feel this school is behind as far as a comparision with the DOD's schools.
