Neal Dow has excellent teachers who are committed, caring, professional, and well versed in current curriculum. Also, the principal is always parent supportive and highly visible before and after school.

Neal Dow Elementary School is #1. My kids love going to school here because of it's way it runs and the wonderful principal, teachers, volunteers, and staff. I get assurance, comfort, and peace of mind as a parent knowing the school empathize safety & no bullying. My kids focus well in their academic & physical activities because of good balance of everything.

This has been a very challenging, but quite successfu,l year. Our staff and students have been required to learn many new skills in order to keep pace with technology as one of the major learning modalities of the future. The culture of the school was mostly positive and focused on helping each other achieve and relish academic successes, of which we had many.

I had three children attend Neal Dow. We were very impressed with the teachers. They are creative, thoughtful, professional and caring. It's unfortunate that they lack the freedom to do their jobs under the thumbs of CUSD and the administration. Although my children loved their teachers, they lost their love of learning at this school. This school is great if you want to prep your children for standardized testing. The administration will make certain your student will acheive the highest possible score. But if you are looking for an environment where your student will be enriched with science, music, art, languages, you will be disappointed. A disproportionate amount of time is spent preparing for the standardized testing. This seems to be the case for most of the CUSD schools. Thumbs up for remedial reading and math. Thumbs down for whole education.
