10 Parent Reviews for Takoma Park Elementary School

I am very happy with TPES. My son has ADHD and Aspergers - but he is happy and thriving at this school. He gets support from special educators, but spends most of his time in his regular class - where he has friends and is doing very well academically. I especially want to commend the principal for always ...  Read more

I have two kids at TPES. We travel a great distance for my son to go to school for the "magnet" program. If my older son didn't love TPES so much and the teachers, administrators and support staff were not so incredibly dedicated, we would not do the commute. The magnet program has lost a lot of funding, ...  Read more

We LOVED this school! Staff is great. My daughter had a wonderful and challenging experience there. Can't wait for my son to start kindergarten this year.

My son attended kindergarten and first grade at TPES. We left due a cross-country move and couldn't be sorrier to leave. My son's teachers have been nothing short of outstanding. He has thrived at TPES and is sad to leave. I have spent years working inside schools and have never been as impressed with ...  Read more

I am disappointed with TPES. I had heard such great things about the school prior to enrolling our daughter, who is in 1st grade this year. The front desk staff is not very friendly, they do not let you walk your child into their classroom EVER, and they give you nasty notes or question you rudely ...  Read more

i am very pleaesed with the school. The secretary lives across the street and knows almost if not every student by name. The classes are small. Our second grader was below level in reading but still in a class setting that encouraged him and gave him the confidence he needed to become an awersome reader. ...  Read more

The ratio in my son's class is 15:1. His teacher is nationally certified. Although he is in the magnet program for science and social studies; he is intergrated with other students for reading and math. The school does an excellent job at meeting the varied academic needs of the children based on their ...  Read more

A great little school. Very small-child friendly, as it only goes through grade 2 and is a very pretty, open building.

I have a child currently attending Takoma Elementary and she loves it. The school is great. There is a 15 to 1 ratio, well structured programs, great PTA group, and a wonderful teaching staff. My child is in Kindergarden and she has advanced well (as far as learning is concerned). The school is located ...  Read more
