11 Parent Reviews for Amanda Arnold Elementary School

We are a military family and have lived all over the United States. Amanda Arnold was average in comparison with the schools our children have attended. The PTO is amazing and there are some amazing teachers at this school. I would have liked to have seen more technology and a more active administration.

I bought a very expensive house specifically to live in the Amanda Arnold school district. I was told that it was the best school in Manhattan and that the education was top notch.

If your children is average, then this is a great school. If your child is gifted they will refuse to advance your child because keeping them at grade level increases their state scores.

Amanda Arnold is a great school with many challenges for students of all ages. It allows kids to go to advanced subjects and skip grades, a rarity most schools don't have!

While I would consider this school to be decent in academics, the support for the children, particularly military children, is horrifically absent. I would say this is due to teachers, but more than that, this is due to lack of leadership from the principal. Unless parents have a historical or monetary ...  Read more

I recently moved to Manhattan & choose the area I lived in for the school. Amanda Arnold is a good school as far as education goes. It's not a very welcoming school, Lot of bullying. Locals say that all the schools in Manhattan are good and I agree.

My son has the best kindergarten teacher ever! He came to this school with a limited attention span...he now sits during circle time, reading time and interacts with all the other children appropriately. His teacher actually cares as well as the special ed teacher! My other son is a first grader and ...  Read more

The teachers are amazing and very knowledgeable. Mrs. Nash is a great 2nd grade teacher and Mrs. Dillingham is one of the best teachers I have ever met. She supports the students in and out of the classroom and helps them keep up and/or get ahead of their classmates. I am glad that my child attends ...  Read more
