Very positive. Our child is learning a lot socially and academically.

Great small school with engaged parent teacher community, the test scores do not tell the entire story. The school has a large percentage of English learners and low income students and does a great job supporting all students to succeed.

DW is a wonderful and diverse school with strong parent involvement and sense of community. My child is in kindergarten, and all three teachers on the kinder team are awesome. He also loves the stage write program, art, computer class, dance and the after-school program which offers great clubs and outdoor play. As working parents we also really appreciate that there is affordable after school care available for all students. The school was renovated top to bottom in 2015-2016 and our new principal, Ms. Betti is fantastic. This school is a gem and we feel so lucky to be enjoying the fruits of a true community effort.

Daniel Webster is a real community school where the parents, the teachers and the locals community have come together to create a real gem of a school.The school was recently remodeled / renovated, and this has done so much to brighten the environment. Don't be concerned by the low test scores. A large amount of the kids attending are ESL learners, and another third are English speakers in an immersion program, so they have the additional challenge of having more than half of their students effectively being taught in a non-native language! For anyone interested in the benefits of dual-language education (We were, which is why we chose DW) you'd be hard-pressed to find a better school.

Daniel Webster is the epitome of a true "community" school where the parents, the longtime teachers (very little churn) and local community have contributed greatly to the warmth, care, and focus on quality.The school was recently rebuilt from the ground up, and the new facility is gorgeous, and inspires our children to be active learners, while still having time to be a kid.I am frustrated to see the data on low test scores, but given that 2/3 of each grade are Spanish Immersion learners, and that English proficiency tends to build post-Third Grade for immersion learners, I'm not surprised.
