15 Parent Reviews for Markham Elementary School

It's understandable that the students get bullied so much when a majority of the teaching staff appear to be adult bullies as well; the school is also not very accepting of others. Markham certainly was one of the best schools in the past, probably not anymore.

Don't send your children here if you can avoid it. My child was bullied, with the teachers and staff happily participating. The PTA parents put themselves way above the children, as do most of the adults working there. Most people who live in Mt. Lebanon are too scared to say anything negative about ...  Read more

IF You have a child with special needs, stay away from this school. My normal child is doing great; the staff is very nice and attentive. However, my other child's teacher is anything but a teacher.

Lebanon and having talked with parents and teachers from each, I can think of no better venue for children than Markham from the standpoints of education, culture, parental involvement and safety.

Markham rocks! Markham is a great school. I loved it when I went there. The teachers are great and while the bully program seemed a bit over the top I enjoyed my time at Markham

My daughter has enjoyed this school very much. As a parent, I can attest that the level of parent involvement is extreamly high. So much so that there is a lottery for parents to be able to volunteer in the classes. The academics are wonderful, the teachers are superb, and the children are polite. The ...  Read more

Markham is a very average school. Fortunately retirements are starting to take hold and it is my hope that some fresh thinking will address the unfriendly culture of the school. My daughter watched boys in her fifth grade class being bullied all year. Unfortunately, the school, in spite of the Olweus ...  Read more
