Teller is a decent school that has been working to improve test scores and modernize itself. There has recently been a lot of teacher turn-over which appears to be positive but since it seems the majority of the teachers are new this year, stability has yet to be proven. The principal seems more interested ...  Read more

Teller Elementary is a wonderful community school. I choose the word community over neighborhood because we do have families that choice in. That combined with the neighborhood families creates a wonderful environment for my children. We are in our 4th year at Teller, which began with the ECE program, ...  Read more

Overall Teller is a good school, although it would be nice if they replaced the secretary (Dee Faust)with someone who has better communication skills.

this school is awesome! I am a 5th grader at this school and I believe that kids get even work. I would say this school has excellent academics and kids that love to learn. Our schools teachers and office staff are really hard workers and focus mainly on the kids.

Our two sons attend this school, one in special ed, and the other in general ed. We have found the staff to be very dedicated and hard working. They care about their students' success. Parental involvement and extracurricular activities are also a large priority at this school. We feel that it is ...  Read more

Teller is a great small-feeling inner city school. When you enter the building, you can feel that most everyone wants to be there from the teachers and staff to the kids. The teachers are good-some more enthusiastic than others, but overall really take pride in their jobs. The principal is very outgoing ...  Read more
