15 Parent Reviews for Henry Ford Elementary School

We could not have asked for a better neighborhood school! The teachers at Henry Ford are amazing, especially Mr. Howell. Our son loves him (and so do we)! The principal Ms. Griffiths is fantastic and works tirelessly in making the school even better. Great community-bonding events, too.

Very devoted teachers, principal. Extremely active and succesful PTA helping compensate the budget gap. Would recommend to any parent considering it for their child without any hesitation!

My 2 daughters went to HF K-3. The teachers are dedicated, and the principal, Lynne Griffiths, is a tireless advocate for her students, teachers, and school community.

I couldn't DISAGREE more with the last post. I have been involved with this school for many years, and am continuously impressed with the teachers and staff. They don't pressure students to do the fundraisers, but they are easier on parents because its things we already spend money on each time we are ...  Read more

I am maybe the first one to rate Ford this low, but I have to. I didn't expect to be so dissapointed of this school, as it is in such a nice neighborhood. Teachers should attend more professional development programs, as I don't see the commitment, desire or energy to work with the children. I don't ...  Read more

I think Henry Ford Elementary is a great school. Academics are at level. My three kids have always loved every teacher there. I was upset that the principal Kimberly Attell was very rude at times. She seemed to take out her frustrations on parents and children who didn't deserve the anger. She is ...  Read more
